As they are exposed to the elements, your teeth tend to show signs of damage over time. At Sorensen Dental Group, we recommend that you come to us if you need restorative treatment. Many of the treatments that we offer are simple and non-invasive, often being completed in a single session.
We can perform services on your teeth to improve and restore their health and visual quality. Those techniques include:
Cavities are small holes that form in the enamel of your tooth. This can be fixed by removing the decay and filling that section with a new material - such as metal, acrylic or porcelain.
If a tooth has already had a number of fillings or is highly decayed, a crown may be necessary. A crown is a cover that is placed on the tooth to protect it from more damage.
If the biting surface of your tooth has been damaged, we can fix it by neatly gluing something called an “inlay” over the damaged area - restoring your tooth to natural health.
This is similar to an inlay, but is used when damage is more extensive. It covers more of the tooth, but is often preferred to a crown for its ability to maintain existing tooth structure.
When a tooth is extracted, your dentist can often have it replaced with an artificial tooth that is held in place by a bridge that connects it to the two adjacent teeth.
