When you have teeth that are strong and healthy, the likelihood that you have a robust and healthy body to match will increase by leaps and bounds. Repairing, replacing, and restoring teeth might seem like it is purely for functional or cosmetic dental issues, but to resolve those problems is only part of the process. Having secure, intact, and healthy teeth don’t just feel great they look great, and it decreases chances for you to have gum disease that can lead to other health problems like diabetes, heart disease, stroke, or Alzheimer’s. You will be so happy when you can trust your smile.

Fillings

Fillings that are tooth-colored are made of a durable composite and resin material that can be color-matched to the color of your teeth. Getting a filling can correct a small tooth that is fractured covering at less depth than an onlay, inlay, or even a crown. Here at Admire Dental Bristol, we can take out the old metal amalgam fillings that you have that might contain mercury and then replace them with some tooth-colored fillings that can blend with all your other teeth in a more outward pleasing way.

With an inlay, it fills a larger section of your tooth’s bite surface than some filling that is contained within the cusp of the tooth, while an onlay will fill and cover the entire “bite” surface, which includes up and over the cusp. Onlays and inlays are an “older” restoring solution, but it has many advantages. They let your tooth withstand 50 to 75 percent more pressure for the chewing process, are less costly than a crown, and can last longer than a filling. Onlays and inlays are color-matched to your natural teeth, so they are more visually pleasing.

Crowns

A crown can restore the entire surface of your tooth, that is everything that you can see above the gumline. They are composed of durable, long-lasting material like porcelain, zirconia, composite, or resin. Our dentist here at Admire Dental Bristol will advise you which material will be the right one for you and your situation, and what advantages and disadvantages come with each. If you choose a tooth-colored material for your new crown, it can be colored to match your other teeth so your smile will be visually pleasing.

Bridges

A bridge will correct a gap in your smile if a tooth or teeth are missing. It is like building a bridge to bridge the gap. Your natural teeth that lay on either side of the gap can secure your new artificial teeth in their place. If you do not have a full set of teeth, there will be other teeth that will move into filling up that gap and can cause some unnatural alignment of your bite, and this can cause TMJ, headaches, and other problems.

Partial & Full Dentures

Partials and dentures can replace more missing teeth than just a bridge. Traditional dentures are the ones most affordable for tooth replacement options out on the market when there is a full arch (bottom teeth, top teeth, or both) is missing. There has been a drastic improvement in fabrication and material over the years, and it continues to get better with all the technology we have at our hands. The partial dentures have been designed to fill in a gap, and they are supported to stay in place by the teeth adjacent to the empty spot rather than your gums.

Root Canals

Root canals are where the infection is removed from the inner part of your tooth that will help your dentist at Admire Dental to save your tooth. When the damaged, infected tissues have been dug out, the inner part of your tooth that is called the pulp is then sterilized, sealed and the dentist will top it all off with a crown or other filling so your tooth can be returned to its full function and form.

Implants

Implants are now the gold standard in replacing teeth, as they rank highest as far as satisfaction for the patient and the dentist. The implant post is made of titanium, a material that can integrate itself into your jaw as it can mimic a real natural tooth root.

Once the placement and the restoration have been completed, you can care for your implants as you care for your other teeth.
