There’s no need to be embarrassed by whatever dental issues you are dealing with. Dr. Porter is here to help. And, odds are you are not the first person to walk into our Gillette, Wyoming dentist’s office with such a problem.
Plus, if you are distraught about your state, we have some good sedation dentistry options designed to help you relax for your restorative procedures.
Keep reading to hear more about restorative dentistry at Synergy Dental Center, and then be sure to follow up to schedule an appointment with Dr. Porter.
Whenever you do come in for your consultation, we will assess your condition and come up with a plan for treatment that best fits your current needs and budget. Don’t worry, we will make it as pleasant and painless as possible!
Our restorative dentistry treatments include: tooth-colored fillings, root canals, crowns and bridges, implant restorations, and more.
All-on-4 Dental Implants
This same-day implant procedure will allow you to leave our office with a brand-new smile in just one day! We can extract any teeth necessary, place dental implants, and load them with a restoration all in just one procedure. This is a great option for patients who need to replace an entire arch or even an entire mouth of teeth.
You can also replace your teeth using implant-supported dentures. Removable dentures can sometimes be slippery and hard to control. Securing them with dental implants ensures that they stay exactly where they are supposed to be.
For this procedure we will numb the affected tooth and create a small opening in it, getting rid of all of the decay in the cavity. Once the decay is removed, we will then fill the hole in with a composite resin.
Cavities used to be filled exclusively with a metal amalgam, which is very effective but looks kind of bad in your mouth and contains mercury, which is a concern for some folks.
Around here, however, we can use tooth-colored composite resin fillings, which are much more attractive and somewhat safer to use than traditional metal fillings.
Root Canals Are Not A Bad Thing In Gillette
If tooth decay ever reaches the soft pulp of a tooth, a simple filling will not be enough to prevent infection and ensure that the health of the tooth can be restored. But we will be able to perform what is known as a root canal, which will rid the tooth of infection, replace the tooth’s pulp with an inert material, and seal it off again.
These aren’t as bad as you might think. And at least you’ll know that your health will be restored when we are finished with the treatment!
Crowns, Bridges, Etc.
Some of our treatments are designed for specialized functions. Crowns, bridges, and dentures are restorative components that will help your mouth look, function, and feel like it would naturally, following tooth loss, a root canal, etc.
We’ll tell you all about your options during your consultation. Speaking of that, isn’t it about time to schedule your appointment?
