Axiom Dentistry can provide total mouth reconstruction under one roof with a combination of cosmetic and restorative dental procedures.
Esthetic Fillings: What exactly is a white filling? Composite fillings are made from a tooth-colored acrylic and glass mixture that is used to restore decayed teeth. There are several reasons to choose these natural colored fillings over silver (amalgam) fillings:
- They harden faster and stronger.
- They require smaller preparations resulting in less tooth loss and drilling.
- They provide a natural looking smile!
Crowns and Bridges: Dental crowns are used to save a tooth that has become severely damaged and cannot support a filling. They can restore broken, cracked, decayed, or worn teeth. Dental crowns are often referred to as “dental caps” because like a cap they are designed to fit over and encase the entire tooth restoring its size, shape, and strength. Bridges are used to replace missing teeth and consist of two crowns with a connecting tooth that fills the space of a missing tooth.
Root Canals: A root canal is a procedure used to treat a severely decayed or infected tooth. During a root canal, the nerve of the tooth is removed, and the canal is cleaned and sealed. Without a root canal, a tooth may become abscessed. An abscess is a painful infection in the root that may cause swelling and bone loss.
Extractions: At Axiom Dentistry, our goal is to always try to save your teeth; however, on occasion, a tooth is too damaged to be repaired. In this case, the best option for treatment is to remove the tooth to prevent further pain and damage. Our professionals will explain the procedure step by step and provide you with replacement options.
Partials and Dentures: Partials and dentures are removable appliances used to replace some or all missing teeth. Partials consist of replacement teeth attached to a plastic base and connected by metal framework. Partials are important because they not only replace missing teeth, but they prevent teeth from shifting positions. Dentures are prefabricated acrylic teeth that are processed into a custom acrylic base that is custom made to fit your mouth. Dentures give you the ability to speak, eat, and smile as you once did.
Implants: When it comes to tooth replacement, dental implants are the top of the line. Implants are a permanent solution to a missing tooth. They look and feel like your own natural teeth. Learn more about implant dentistry here.
Whitening: Over the years, our teeth can become stained and discolored. You can take appear much younger just by whitening your smile. Axiom Dentistry offers in- office or at-home systems that include custom-made trays for just the right fit.
