Traditional Crown & Bridge
A dental crown is one of the most trusted and versatile treatments in all of dentistry, able to give a damaged tooth its original strength and beauty back all at the same time. Whether a tooth has been affected by a cavity or injury, a dental crown is usually the best solution. They can even be used to bridge the gap between 1 to 3 missing teeth, helping you complete your smile as well as restore your ability to speak and eat with confidence.
For years, fillings were made of a dark gray material that always left an obvious mark on any tooth it was used on. At our practice, however, we only utilize composite resin fillings because they can be specially shaded to perfectly match the color of a patient’s teeth, making them practically invisible. Even better, this material also forms a much stronger bond with the enamel, giving you a tooth that doesn’t just look great but is built to last as well.
CEREC One-Visit Restorations
In the past, if you needed a tooth repaired, it would take at least two visits to your dentist’s office spaced about a week apart. Who has time for that?! At Lapalco Family Dental, we can fully restore a tooth with a dental crown in just one visit thanks to our CEREC technology. It enables us to design, fabricate, and place a completely custom-made crown in just one visit, helping you get back to your life with a beautiful smile in record time.
Full & Partial Dentures
If you are currently dealing with multiple missing teeth, then you probably don’t need us to tell you about the problems they can cause for your speech, ability to chew, and self-esteem. Fortunately, we have a reliable solution. Whether you are missing just a few teeth or all of them, dentures have long been one of the most effective and affordable replacement solutions. Now, thanks to the latest advancements in dental prosthetics, modern-day dentures are smaller, sleeker, and more natural-looking than ever.
They consist of realistic-looking ceramic teeth attached to a gum-colored base, and they can be designed to replace just about any number of teeth. A partial denture can fill in the gaps in your smile while fitting in seamlessly with your remaining teeth. Or, if you’re missing an entire row of teeth, it can easily be brought back with a full denture. In the end, no matter what you need, we’ll make sure you leave our office with a confident smile.
When a tooth develops an infection deep inside it where the sensitive nerve is located, this often creates the mother of all toothaches. In order to relieve this pain, we can perform a root canal, an extremely helpful procedure that, needless to say, has quite the reputation. In reality, this treatment is one of the best tools we have to eliminate dental pain as well as save teeth that would otherwise need to be removed.
