Your smile is the way you can wordlessly express yourself to others. After all, it’s the first thing people notice about your appearance. That said, nothing can ruin your smile more than broken, decayed, or missing teeth. Your damaged teeth can also lower your self-esteem and your confidence. They can make you avoid cameras, mirrors, and even people so you don’t have to remind yourself of your ugly teeth. Nothing to worry, our Edgewood, KY dentists can provide restorative dentistry services.
If you have been suffering from damaged or missing teeth, don’t think it’s too late to get a smile you can be proud of. Edgewood Dental Care is here with solutions for you! Using the latest technology and procedures in restorative dentistry, your Edgewood, KY dentists and caring staff will restore your teeth, your health, and your smile!
Today, filling a cavity doesn’t mean you have to get an ugly amalgam filling that mars your smile. Modern dentistry has given your Edgewood, KY dentists a way to repair tooth decay that blends with your natural teeth. Tooth-colored fillings are restorative dentistry options that are made of composite resin, a strong combination of materials similar to your enamel structure.
Another treatment modern dentistry has paved the way for is porcelain crowns. Crowns are caps that fit over a damaged tooth to protect it. In the not-so-distant past, dentists used metal in all of their crown work. The metal showed through when you smiled, showcasing the fact that you obviously had had dental work done. Dr. McMahon uses beautiful ceramic crowns that look and shine like your natural teeth, so they blend right in with your smile.
We have even taken dental technology a step further to bring you CEREC crowns. We can place these same-day crowns in just one visit to our Kentucky dentist office!
Bridges are used to replace one or a few adjacent missing teeth. These dental appliances consist of a false tooth connected to 2 abutments crowns. Some bridges are removable. They support the false teeth on a base of natural looking gums. Other bridges are cemented directly onto your teeth.
Implants are one of the greatest dental advancements of the 20th century for restorative dentistry. These permanent tooth replacements are made of 3 parts: a titanium screw that fits in your jawbone, an abutment that sticks out to support the restoration, and the restoration itself. Implants can support a single crown, several crowns, bridges, or dentures. In any of these methods, they will almost completely restore your eating, chewing, and speaking abilities.
Because we personalize your dental care, we offer several types of dental implants to meet your needs. These include conventional or traditional implants, mini implants, and immediate load implants using only 4, 5, or 6 implants. If you’re interested in a lifelong solution for your missing teeth, then dental implants can be a great option.
Dentures of the past made it quite clear that you were wearing a false set of teeth. Our lifelike dentures look like real teeth, so you can enjoy your smile and regain your confidence for many years. Dentures can also help you speak and eat better, especially dentures supported by implants. There are different types of dentures our Edgewood, KY dentists offer, including full dentures, partials, traditional dentures, implant-retained dentures, hybrid dentures, removable dentures with implants, and lifelike partials.
Sometimes restoring your oral health requires surgery. Dr. McMahon offers superior oral surgery techniques to improve your smile. With our modern dental tools and technology, we provide a more comfortable surgery than you could have imagined possible.
Edgewood Dental Care can restore your post–gum disease tissues with gingival grafting, repair bone damage with bone grafting, accurately place implants with guided surgery, and preserve bone structure after extractions with socket preservation.
