Dental Fillings

Cavities are one of the most common oral diseases, so it's imperative we tackle them as soon as they begin to compromise the health and wellness of your teeth. When left untreated, they can cause serious discomfort and may require more invasive procedures to alleviate. Thanks to fillings, your dentist can halt the progression of tooth decay in a single visit. By stopping by for your regular 6-month cleaning and checkup, you can prevent new cavities from forming in the first place.

Same-Day Crowns

No one likes to deal with a broken, cracked, or severely decayed tooth. It can be painful and stressful, but thanks to same-day crowns, you can restore your tooth in a single visit. This allows you to skip the temporary restoration and long wait for your permanent crown. Same-day crowns are custom-made from high-quality, durable materials and color-matched to blend seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. With our state-of-the-art digital imaging and CAD/CAM technology, your appointment will be over in 2 hours or less, so you can start smiling again!

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns can help revive your smile if you are struggling with cracked or broken teeth. These tooth-shaped caps serve as a protective layer for the natural root of your tooth while enhancing your bite's functionality. If you have undergone a root canal or dental implant procedure, a crown can also improve the health of your tooth. With the option to choose from a range of materials, crowns are suitable for both restorative and cosmetic purposes, allowing you to smile with ease and confidence.

East Houston root canal therapy

Root Canal Therapy

Toothaches can be a sign of a serious infection and cause significant discomfort. Fortunately, root canal therapy offers a solution to provide the relief you need and restore the health of your tooth.During a root canal procedure, the infected pulp of the tooth is removed, and the area is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. Once the tooth has been properly treated, it can be restored with a filling or a dental crown to help maintain its structure.Not only can root canal therapy alleviate the pain caused by the infection, but it can also prevent the need for a tooth extraction. By saving your natural tooth, you can smile with confidence and avoid more extensive and costly dental work down the line.

Extractions

Extractions are always our last option — saving your smile is our number one priority. However, a problematic tooth is sometimes more trouble than it's worth. Your doctor may recommend an extraction as the best way to get your oral health back on the right path. With gentle techniques, and local anesthesia or sedation, decaying teeth can be removed to alleviate your discomfort or to make room for dental implants, a bridge, or another type of tooth replacement.

East Houston Dental Implants

Dental Implants

If you're faced with the need for a tooth extraction or if you're already missing a tooth, remember you've got plenty of options for a replacement. One top choice is dental implants. They do more than just fill in your smile. They also restore the strength of your bite and promote the overall health of your mouth. The best part? Dental implants are not only long-lasting and secure but can also slow, or even halt, bone loss by imitating the shape and function of your natural tooth roots. Want to learn more? Book a consultation today to discover if dental implants could be the key to restoring your confident smile.

Dental Bridges

There's no need to keep covering up your mouth if a missing tooth is leaving a gap in your smile. With a dental bridge, the space left behind by one, or several, missing teeth can be permanently covered. The bridge is attached to your teeth on either side of the gap, so it won't slide around when you eat or speak. Your bridge also won't stand out from the rest of your smile —it can be color-matched to blend with your other teeth. Keep your teeth from shifting and reduce the risk of bone loss and problems with your bite by asking your dentist about a bridge. Schedule a consultation today to see if a dental bridge can help you complete your smile!

Dentures

Dentures are a removable, affordable solution that can complete your smile after missing one or all of your natural teeth. To ensure a natural look and feel, most dentures are made of a combination of acrylic and metal and are custom-crafted for a comfortable fit. Looking to see if dentures are right for you? Schedule a consultation to find out if a set of full or partial dentures can restore your bite. It's about time you got back to living your life with a smile.

Implant-Retained Dentures

Tired of your dentures slipping and sliding around in your mouth? Implant-retained dentures, also called overdentures or snap-on dentures, can replace all of your teeth, just like traditional dentures. However, instead of relying on suction or adhesive, they are secured in place with several dental implants. These removable appliances make it easy to keep up with your oral hygiene, and are made from a combination of acrylic and metal materials for enhanced durability.

Implant Crowns

After your dental implant has been affixed, your dentist will make the finishing touches by adding an implant crown! Dental crowns act as tooth "caps" that are fitted onto the implant. Your dentist will ensure the size and color of your implant crown matches with the rest of your other teeth, so you can have a seamless new smile.

Partial Dentures

Missing just a few teeth? Partial dentures may be the right choice for you. Partial dentures look natural, are removable, and can be a great solution to restoring the function of your teeth and jaw. Make the first step in restoring your smile by booking a consultation.
