Severely worn down, missing, or badly damaged teeth can truly have a detrimental effect on one’s ability to chew or to feel comfortable in social situations. Teeth marred by neglect, lack of care, and improper dentistry often require comprehensive restorative treatment. This can include a combination of cosmetic and restorative dental procedures that may include periodontal therapy, endodontic treatment, veneers, bridges, crowns, implants or other dental work. Mckenzie Lake Dental offers you a full range of options to get you smiling again!
If you are missing teeth and this causes trouble speaking, chewing or any discomfort, bridges may be the ideal procedure to help make your mouth healthy and fully functional again. Bridges literally “bridge” gaps between teeth by filling them with strong, natural-looking artificial teeth. Bridges are semi-permanent and fixed to the teeth surrounding the gap. They can only be removed by a dentist and are a comfortable and practical ways to replace missing teeth and prevent the drifting of surrounding teeth affected by the tooth’s absence. Bridges are proven to strengthen your overall bite and smile.
A root canal or a large restoration (filling) may be the reason why your tooth could require a crown to fully restore and protect the tooth. A crown is a cap that will be made to color match your other teeth giving it a very natural and undetectable appearance. When getting a crown, you will come for two appointments. The first appointment is when you will have the crown tooth prepped with impressions sent to our lab. At your second appointment we will cement the cap (crown) into place to fully encase the visible portion of the tooth, restoring its function, strength and appearance.
An excellent alternative to crowns, porcelain veneers can perfect your smile by masking stains, hiding chips, correcting misalignment, and creating uniformity. Veneers, which are made of thin, customized material, are designed to slide over the teeth, look incredibly natural, are long-lasting, and are a great way to make your smile the way you imagined it.
We understand that sometimes due to unforeseen circumstances, you may need to cancel your dental appointment. We ask that if you do need to do so, please give our office 48 hours notice of your cancellation so we have adequate time to fill your appointment opening and reschedule your appointment for a time that is more convenient for you. We appreciate your cooperation.
