At Simply Dental, we offer restorative dentistry that rehabilitates your natural smile, so all parts of your mouth, from your teeth and gums to your jaw, work properly. In many cases, we’re happy to combine our restorative services with our cosmetic dentistry to ensure your smile looks and feels great, and functions perfectly.
Many minor tooth problems, when left untreated, can develop into larger, more complicated issues. When this occurs, you’re investing more time and money into just making your smile healthy, which is something that should come naturally. After detecting a problem, we’ll treat the cause and then offer a restorative dentistry service to repair your natural tooth and save the smile you were born with, whenever possible.
If repairing your natural teeth is not an option, or you’ve already lost teeth due to trauma, medical issues, gum disease, or other causes, we offer tooth replacement options. We have a range of replacement restorations available, and our team will work with you to determine which is the best for your individual case. It’s important to replace missing teeth to maintain optimal oral health, as natural teeth are affected by lost teeth. Your healthy teeth can shift over time, your jaw bone can begin to deteriorate, and you’ll notice increased biting stress on your remaining teeth. Feel free to discuss your options for tooth replacement with Dr. Clauss, and get a full smile once again.
Regardless of what you need to restore your natural brilliance to your smile and protect it from further damage, Simply Dental can help. We’re looking forward to showing you just how beautiful your smile can be once again, while promoting oral health and complete wellness.
Has decay started to take over your tooth? Stop it now, before it develops into a bigger issue, with a dental filling. This is one of the most common treatments performed on patients, and it’s simple and quick. First, we’ll remove the decayed portion of the tooth. Next, we’ll use a tooth-colored composite resin to fill the tooth cavity, restoring complete functionality. You’ll be able to eat, bite, chew, and speak like normal, and any discomfort from cavities should disappear.
Teeth that are moderately decayed may not be able to accept a traditional dental filling. In these cases, consider porcelain inlay or onlay restorations. Both inlays and onlays strengthen the integrity of the tooth, and there’s no need for additional support with a dental crown. Inlays cover the interior biting surface of the tooth up to the cusps, while onlays extend over the cusps. Ask us if these restorations are right for you.
To save cracked or broken teeth from decay and further damage, or as added protection for a tooth that has received a root canal, we recommend a dental crown. Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that fit over the exposed surface of the tooth above the gum line and are bonded in place. Dental crowns are created in-house using CEREC computer assisted 3d printing, which means the whole process is more convenient for you. No more waiting for an off-site dental lab to send your restoration and hoping it fits. At Simply Dental, we have complete control over the whole treatment, ensuring your restoration looks natural and blends with your existing teeth. We use metal-free crowns when appropriate and offer porcelain-fused-to-metal dental crowns, depending on your needs.
Whether you are missing a single tooth or a series of teeth, you may be a candidate for a dental bridge. Dental bridges are fixed prosthetics that are held in place by two crowns, bonded to the healthy remaining teeth adjacent to the gap left from missing teeth. We’ll custom create your restoration, which can be done using CEREC technology right in our office. Depending on your situation, we offer metal-free or porcelain-fused-to-metal dental bridges, and are happy to determine which is right for you.
Another common replacement for missing teeth, dentures and partials are prosthetic appliances that are removeable. Dentures replace a full set of missing teeth, and come in traditional and implant-retained options. Partials replace a series of missing teeth, and at Simply Dental we offer advanced flexible partials, which provide improved appearance and a more comfortable fit for our patients. These partials are less rigid and plastic-looking than traditional replacements.
When you’ve lost your natural teeth, opt for the next best thing. Dental implants are a permanent, durable solution to missing teeth, offering a restoration that not only looks natural, but also functions like your original teeth. For more information, visit our Implant Dentistry page.
Commonly known as “root canal therapy”, endodontic treatments remove diseased or infected dental pulp from inside the tooth and restore your tooth back to discomfort-free functionality. Often, we’ll advise patients to consider a dental crown for the tooth that’s received therapy, as added protection and increased structural integrity. We believe in saving your natural teeth as much as possible, but we’re committed to doing it gently and with your comfort in mind. We are happy to perform anterior and premolar root canal treatments in our office, along with more advanced cases, such as molar endodontics and retreatments of teeth that have previously undergone root canal therapy.
Sometimes, your oral health will benefit from removing a natural tooth that cannot be saved, whether it’s excessively decayed or damaged and broken beyond repair. If an extraction is ordered, don’t worry. Our friendly team of compassionate caregivers ensure you are relaxed and comfortable throughout the procedure. You can have oral surgery from the people you trust the most with your care. We perform minor extractions in our office, and in some cases, we’ll even remove more complicated teeth, such as wisdom teeth or bony impactions.
