Dental fillings are most commonly used to “fill” in a tooth once decay is removed. We use a composite, tooth-colored resin so the filling blends in seamlessly with the natural color of your tooth. Instead of feeling embarrassed about having a noticeable, silver filling, no one will even realize you have one!
CEREC® Same-Day Crowns
Crowns are caps that go over an entire tooth. They are a versatile restoration that can be used to correct damaged, weak, broken, imperfect, discolored, or missing teeth. We have an on-site milling unit and state-of-the-art smile preview software, which means that we can design, manufacture, and place your dental crown in just one visit to our office!
If you’re missing multiple teeth in a row, we can use a dental bridge to replace them. A bridge is a prosthesis with dental crowns on each end that attach to existing teeth on either side of the gap or to dental implants. Once in place, they have artificial (but natural-looking) teeth in the middle that fill in the spaces left behind from your missing teeth.
Veneers are an extremely versatile dental treatment that can be used for both cosmetic and restorative dental purposes. They are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front side of teeth to completely transform their look and functionality. For patients dealing with cracked, chipped, or worn down teeth, veneers may be the perfect solution.
Dental implants are a popular tooth replacement method among patients and doctors alike. A dental implant is a small post that is surgically placed into your jawbone to act as a replacement tooth root. It fuses with the jawbone to create a stable foundation for a tooth restoration (crown, bridge, or denture) to attach to on top. For patients missing all of their teeth on their upper or lower arch, we proudly offer All-on-4® implant-supported dentures that securely hold a custom denture in place with the use of four implants.
Root Canal Therapy
Despite it’s bad (and false) reputation, root canal therapy is actually a common, stress-free procedure. If you have a severely decayed or damaged tooth, we can use root canal therapy to clean it out, alleviate your pain and discomfort, and preserve it in its place—avoiding the need for a future extraction!
Restorative Dentistry FAQs
Don’t worry, that’s what we’re here for! If you are missing teeth, dealing with poorly functioning teeth, or have a serious dental concern, we recommend scheduling a consultation at our office. One of our experienced doctors will take a look at what’s bothering you and provide recommendations. You’ll have final say in your treatment, but we’ll be there to guide you towards a healthy smile.
While we can’t say for certain without looking into the benefits of your specific coverage, most dental insurance plans cover at least some of the costs of restorative dentistry. At Dental Solutions of Columbus, we also have different financing options available to help make your treatment more affordable so you don’t have to choose between your wallet and your health.
We understand that it can be a little scary thinking about getting a major dental procedure done, but it’s important to consider how much it’ll benefit not only the appearance of your smile but your health, too. Please let our team know of any concerns you have so we can tailor our care to your needs. We also offer sedation dentistry to help you relax while getting the treatments you need.
