Restorative dentistry

Restorative dentistry

The restorative procedures that we do at Autumn Dental include tooth colored fillings, same day crowns, replacing missing teeth with dentures, bridges and implant crowns.  Our understanding of the latest techniques and use of new technology has helped us devise less invasive ways to repair teeth and maintain the health of gums and your mouth overall. We try to prevent problems before they appear - wherever possible - and repair teeth in ways that are more natural looking.

Your smile matters to you, and it matters to us!

TOOTH COLORED FILLINGS

DO YOU HAVE CAVITIES, BUT YOU’RE AFRAID YOUR FILLINGS WILL BE VISIBLE? AUTUMN DENTAL CAN FIX YOUR CAVITIES WITH TOOTH-COLORED FILLINGS.

Tooth-colored fillings, or fillings made from composite resin, provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small- to mid-size fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. They can be used on either front or back teeth. They are a good choice for people who prefer that their fillings look more natural.

CROWNS

DO YOU HAVE MISSING OR DAMAGED TEETH? ARE YOU READY TO FIX THOSE MISSHAPEN TEETH OR FILL IN GAPS? WE CAN HELP!

A crown is a cover or “cap” that Dr. Allen can put on a tooth. The crown restores the tooth to its normal shape, size and function. The purpose of a crown is to make the tooth stronger or improve the way it looks.

A crown may be the answer if:

  • have a cavity that is too large for a filling
  • have a missing tooth and need a bridge
  • need to cover a dental implant
  • have a tooth that is cracked, worn down or otherwise weakened
  • have had root canal treatment—the crown will protect the restored tooth
  • want to cover a discolored or badly shaped tooth and improve your smile!

DENTAL IMPLANTS

DO YOU HAVE ORDINARY DENTURES THAT ARE UNCOMFORTABLE OR EVEN PAINFUL, OR CAUSE YOU TO GAG? 

For some people, ordinary bridges and dentures are simply not comfortable or even possible, due to sore spots, poor ridges or gagging. In addition, ordinary bridges must be attached to teeth on either side of the space left by the missing tooth. If you’re lacking healthy teeth to attach a bridge to, that treatment is not an option. Dental implants offer a solution to these problems. They are permanent, stable tooth replacements that can be used to replace one missing teeth, several missing teeth, or all of them.

Dental implants are metal posts or frames that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums. Once in place, they allow your dentist to mount replacement teeth onto them. They can be used on either front or back teeth.

DENTURES

IF YOU HAVE SHIFTING OR LOOSE TEETH, BONE LOSS IN YOUR MOUTH, MISSING TEETH OR DIFFICULTY WHEN EATING HARD OR CHEWY FOODS, IT MIGHT BE TIME TO TALK TO DR. ALLEN ABOUT DENTURES.

Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be taken out and put back into your mouth. Dentures have come a long way recently, and while they will still take some getting used to for most people, they are more comfortable and natural looking than ever.

There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. Dr. Allen will help you choose the type of denture that's best for you based on whether some or all of your teeth are going to be replaced and the cost involved.
