While all dentistry services are designed to fix and improve the smile in many ways, our Spring and Conroe dentists also understand that the thought of needing dental care can be intimating and frightening. That is why we offer nitrous oxide, oral conscious, and IV sedation for children and adults.
Do I Need Dental Restoration?
Restorations and restorative dental care provide ideal options when your smile has experienced wear, damage, decay, or infection. Our dentists use restorations to repair savable teeth left vulnerable after chips and cracks, or to replace teeth that have been extracted, lost, or are no longer healthy.
When visiting our Spring or Conroe Location for care, your various treatment options will depend on your specific situation and level of damage. This means that your recommended procedures could be as simple as having a filling placed or more in-depth, like having a denture affixed to implants for replacing your entire smile.
If you’re still unsure whether you need dental restoration, schedule an appointment with our knowledgeable team.
Treating Dental Emergencies with the Help of Quality Restorations
Our Everest Dental team works to prioritize treatment for emergencies and provide restorative care to alleviate your pain and fear. Common dental emergencies we address include:
A Knocked-Out or Lost Tooth requires that you contact us immediately. If you can, try to save as much natural tooth structure as possible, picking up your tooth by the crown and never by the root. If we are unable to re-insert the tooth back into the socket, we’ll likely recommend treatment with a crown attached to a dental implant.
A Cracked, Fractured or Broken Tooth can be the result of an accident, falling, or biting into something hard. Depending on the severity of damage, we may repair your tooth with a filling, inlay, onlay, or crown.
Loose or Lost Restorations may happen because of decay developing underneath or around your restoration. Deep decay or large cavities can change the shape of your tooth, so our dentists will remove the decay and prepare the tooth to ensure your new crown or filling fits properly.
Infected Teeth and Abscesses are considered urgent, and the sooner you come into our office for treatment, the more likely we’ll be able to remove disease and stop it from spreading. We’ll likely perform a root canal if your tooth is still salvageable, or extraction if not. This depends on the severity of your situation.
If you’ve experienced significant damage or trauma to your teeth, gums, and other surrounding structures, full smile rehabilitation or a full smile makeover can repair and rebuild your smile like new. This method combines multiple treatments and procedures to comprehensively restore your afflicted smile to its optimal function, health, and beauty once more.
Rebuilding Your Smile with Dental Implants
Dental implants are made up of three vital components: the titanium implant post, the abutment (the piece responsible for connecting your chosen prosthetic to the implant), and the final restoration. Implants serve as artificial tooth roots once the titanium post is strategically placed into the jawbone by our skilled team.
Because dental implants are accepted by the body, the implant posts fuse naturally with living tissue and bone in a process called osseointegration. Once this fusing process is complete, not only will you be left with a secure, durable, and long-lasting foundation for your new dental prosthetic, but stimulation to your jawbone lost due to missing teeth is restored once more. Since implants replace the entire structure of a lost tooth from root to crown, they are a complete restorative solution.
Replacing Missing Teeth with Dental Implants and Dental Restorations
Every tooth in your smile is important for helping you to chew, grind, and digest food as well as allowing you to speak and express yourself freely. Teeth also play a vital role in helping preserve your natural facial features and jawbone structure. Not replacing even one tooth can have significant impact on your oral and overall health.
We provide the following restorations for renewing your smile after tooth loss:
- Crowns for replacing a single missing tooth in your smile
- Replacing several missing teeth in a row with fixed bridges
- Partial dentures for restoring multiple teeth lost in your smile
- Full or complete dentures for replacing up to an entire smile of missing teeth
- Dental implants for restoring one to all missing teeth from root to crown
Depending on your tooth replacement needs, crowns, bridges, and dentures can all be affixed to dental implants to address missing teeth permanently.
Do I Qualify for Dental Implants?
Because dental implants must be placed into the jawbone, they require a jawbone that is full and healthy. Our dentist will first inspect your jaw to determine if it is dense enough to support implant posts.
If you’ve been missing teeth for a prolonged time, you may have bone recession and loss. Without the constant stimulation of tooth roots, your jawbone begins to shrink. If this is your situation, our dentists may recommend a bone graft. This procedure offers renewed strength to your jaw bone with transplanted or artificial bone materials, giving you the opportunity to rebuild your smile with successful implant treatment.
How Can You Make Sure Implant Treatment is Safe?
In addition to being known as the gold standard for replacing any number of teeth, dental implants have been a highly successful and reliable treatment for decades. Because our leading dentist, Dr. Andy Loc Bui, has both extensive experience and advanced training for properly planning and placing dental implants, we can ensure your treatment is safe, effective, and predictable.
What Does Getting Dental Implants Involve?
While the entire implant process can take anywhere from several months to a year, your results are designed to last a lifetime. When undergoing restoration with dental implants at our offices, treatment often involves these four phases:
- Consultations and Planning – Treatment begins with us evaluating your oral health situation to determine whether implants are the best solution for you. According to your current oral health, medical history, and lifestyle, our dentist plans where your implants will be placed, which restoration they’ll support, and whether any surgeries, such as a bone graft, are needed first.
- Implant Placement – Inserting your implant posts is done with skill and precision. Depending on your unique needs, we may place several posts at once or recommend more than one procedure to complete your implant placement.
- Osseointegration and Healing – Once placed, time is needed for natural tissue and bone to fuse around your implant(s). This time is also necessary to ensure your gums heal properly. Healing and osseointegration may take several months and are vital to ensure your implants remain secure and strong enough to withstand daily use.
- Finalizing Treatment – Dr. Loc Bui and his team invite you back to our Spring or Conroe office to attach your custom-made crown, bridge, or denture restoration to your implants. Once affixed, you’ll be able to chew, speak, and smile just as you would with a natural, healthy tooth.
Repairing and Restoring Aesthetics with White, Composite Fillings
Dental wear, damage, and tooth decay can happen at any age, leaving your teeth vulnerable and in need of repair. While in the past, you may have had to settle for a dark, more noticeable metal or gold filling, with the composite materials of today, the form, function, and aesthetics of your teeth can be restored discreetly. White, composite fillings provide top-notch protection and preserve the look of your natural smile.
Why Opt for Composites Over Gold or Metal Fillings?
At Everest Dental, we not only provide white fillings for helping to preserve aesthetics, but we also believe that repairing your smile should require using the safest materials possible. Although amalgam (metal) fillings were reliable treatments for decades, their tin, silver, and mercury components may pose potential issues to your oral and overall health.
For example, older metal fillings have been known to expand when exposed to changes in temperature, sometimes releasing small traces of mercury vapor into the mouth. For patients with sensitive oral tissues and potential allergies to metal, it’s recommended that these fillings be replaced.
Meeting Your Specific Restoration Needs with Porcelain Inlays and Onlays
Sometimes larger cavities and deeper decay cannot be address properly with a filling – this is where porcelain inlays and onlays come in! These lifelike restorations are a pre-made according to the specific characteristics of your teeth.
They are quickly becoming a favorite way to address issues because inlays and onlays each treat different levels of decay. Inlays fit inside the cusps of your teeth, while onlays are designed to restore both the inside and outside structure of teeth as they extend to the top cusps.
Protecting, Preserving & Revamping Your Smile with Dental Crowns
When it comes to repairing and protecting teeth, few solutions are as effective and as versatile as crowns. A dental crown is often the perfect answer for restoring a tooth that has extensive damage or decay. Because crowns are made specifically to fit over vulnerable teeth, they provide lasting protection against further wear and infection, and reliable stability that can withstand everyday use.
At Everest Dental, we provide crowns crafted from the highest-quality porcelain materials that are known to look, feel, and function exactly like natural teeth. These beautiful crowns allow you to enjoy a healthy, strong, and visually-appealing smile once more.
8 Reasons Why Your Smile May Need a Crown
The durability and longevity of crowns make them an effective solution for addressing many dental health concerns. Below are eight reasons why you may need a crown to help restore your smile like new.
- You have a tooth with deep decay
- Your tooth is severely cracked or fractured
- You have a vulnerable tooth with a large filling
- Your teeth are short and worn from damage, clenching, or grinding
- You have one or two teeth that need replacing
- You have a tooth stained from an injury or trauma
- Your bite alignment needs improving
- Your tooth needs protection and strengthening after root canal therapy
Isn’t Root Canal Therapy Painful?
Any pain or discomfort you’re feeling is due to the inner nerves and soft tissues of your tooth, also known as the pulp, being infected. The truth is that root canal therapy is performed to eliminate disease and remove infected tissues before bacteria spreads to other areas of your smile or to such a degree that your tooth must be extracted. Root canal therapy not only helps alleviate your discomfort and pain, but it is the last option for saving as much of your natural tooth as possible.
During your procedure, our dentist or one of his associates removes the diseased pulp, and the root canal chamber is treated with an antibacterial material. Once the root canal is filled, we’ll seal it off with a crown for lasting protection and stability.
