Restorative Treatment Options
As the name suggests, restorative dentistry aims at returning oral function back to where it should be, which is a smile full of healthy real or artificial teeth, with an eye toward aesthetics. Dr. Fisher can accomplish this by using one or more of several dental treatments.
The leading and most permanent way to replace lost teeth, dental implants are secured at the jawbone to support a restoration. Since these titanium posts fuse to the jawbone, they provide a level of stability and durability for crowns, bridges, and dentures that cannot be surpassed. Patients can live their lives to the fullest with no need to worry that their implant-supported restoration will move out of place. Dental implants are a sound long-term investment, and, with the right care, can last a lifetime.
Dental crowns are also known as caps, since they have traditionally been fitted over—or capped—a compromised tooth to provide it with needed support. Nowadays, dental crowns may also be fitted to a dental implant. Dr. Fisher offers durable dental crowns fabricated with a quality of porcelain that is so realistic in appearance that it is nearly indistinguishable from natural enamel. The outside lab that fabricates your crown can do so with dental-grade porcelain or IPS e.max ceramic—both of which deliver outstanding aesthetics and precision to match your adjacent teeth.
For patients missing one or more consecutive teeth, dental bridges are a long-trusted solution. These restorations are traditionally anchored with dental crowns fitted over the teeth adjacent to the gap in a smile. Bridges may also be attached to dental implants for a more secure restoration. Like our dental crowns, bridges from Dr. Fisher and his team are fabricated from the finest porcelain that mimics your surrounding teeth for a gorgeous continuity to your smile.
When you need to replace a full dental arch, dentures are the tried-and-true option. For decades, these full rows of artificial teeth have been removable and held in place with special adhesives. Today, more and more patients are turning to implant-supported dentures, which can be removable or permanent. Implant-supported dentures will not slip when speaking or chewing and feel and look incredibly real. Regardless of which denture retention method they choose, Dr. Fisher’s patients will receive dentures made of high-quality materials that are handcrafted in a trusted and respected dental laboratory.
Correcting minor tooth decay typically means receiving a filling to halt further deterioration. Dr. Fisher improves on this classic treatment by utilizing laser therapy as a way to kill bacteria that flourishes in a decaying tooth. By using lasers, he causes less trauma to the tooth and minimizes the amount of enamel that needs to be altered. In addition to being more aesthetically pleasing, tooth-colored fillings generally offer more benefits than traditional amalgam (silver) fillings.
