Restorative Dental Care

Fillings, Crowns, Bridges, Implants

Restorative Dental CareOver time, teeth can wear down, crack, break, become decayed, and even fall out. You can even experience dental injuries at work or at play. The entire balance of a healthy mouth is lost: the bite goes off, opposing teeth overgrow in unpredictable directions, facial appearance ages. Instead of waiting for this to occur, choose one of the options made available by modern restorative dentistry.

Restorative dentistry is a dental specialty that helps restore missing or damaged teeth and improves your tooth's shape, your chewing function, or your speech. It also involves the diagnosis and treatment of oral diseases.

You can rest assured knowing the staff at Raton Family Dental will always discuss with you the available options, and recommend what we believe to be the most comfortable and least invasive restorative dental treatment.

Raton Family Dental uses state-of-the-art materials and procedures to provide you with the most natural-looking smile. Our modern dental practice is pleased to have several qualified and caring dentists available to care for all your dental needs

Restorative Dental Care Options

  • Fillings
    Tooth-colored fillings are made of porcelain, which is a mixture of plastic and glass that not only looks good, but is also better for your teeth. Today's tooth-colored filling materials physically attach or bond to natural tooth surfaces. Tooth colored fillings are strong, yet flexible. They absorb and transfer force when you chew, just like natural teeth.

  • Crowns
    A porcelain (tooth colored crown) crown is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A dental crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations. They can also improve the overall appearance of your teeth, giving you a more even smile.

  • Bridges
    A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth. Dental bridges are highly durable and will last many years; however, they may need replacement or need to be re-cemented due to normal wear. Bridges are custom created and fit your mouth perfectly, in both comfort and functionality, and seamless blend in with your natural teeth.

  • Implants
    Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth that are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone. The teeth attached to implants are very natural looking and will enhance or restore a patient's smile. Implants are durable and are key to restoring function to your mouth.

  • Sealants
    Sealants are quick and easy tooth-colored plastic coated resin coatings designed to fill little grooves in your teeth to prohibit bacteria buildup. The process is quite simple. The sealant hardens in just about a minute, and that's it! Best of all, studies have shown that sealants can reduce decay up to 70% and can last nearly a decade!

  • Root Canals
    Root canals can save natural teeth and eliminate severe pain. If you have a dental infection, we can perform a root canal treatment to remove compromised tissue and strengthen the tooth structure. After disinfecting and filling the canals, we can place a crown to save remaining tissue and protect your tooth from reinfection. Teeth that have undergone a root canal will normally last a lifetime with proper care.
