Zachary, LA Restorative Dental Services
Here at Smile Studio, we offer a wide range of restorative dental services to our Zachary patients.
Crowns act by returning a tooth to its default shape and size. For this reason, Dr. Carter uses them as tools to restore your dental health and smile.
Picture a tooth that has excessive fillings. A crown can strengthen this tooth. Your Zachary dentist could also repair a cracked or broken tooth by using a crown.
A crown can cover a tooth to make it look normal again. Dr. Carter uses the most modern, advanced materials to create crowns to match the rest of your natural teeth.
At Smile Studio, we use crowns made from porcelain, zirconia, gold, and porcelain fused to metal. Dr. Carter also uses ceramic crowns from e.Max.
If you live around the Zachary area and have missing teeth, consider getting a dental bridge at Smile Studio. Our dentist, Dr. Carter, cements a fixed bridge appliance to your surrounding teeth on either side of the missing space.
While you can remove partial dentures, bridges stay fixed, like implants. They’re permanent.
Dr. Carter customizes your artificial teeth and crowns to make sure they fit correctly and look perfect. Consider a bridge to close spaces left by missing teeth, empower your bite, lower the chance of shifting teeth, and give you beautiful, natural-looking results.
For people missing teeth in the Zachary area, you can also consider a permanent, surgical option—dental implants. Modern dental prosthetics at Smile Studio offer you many great solutions, regardless of your age or budget.
Dental implants are made up of an artificial implant root and a prosthetic tooth. The root is made out of titanium. Titanium is a bioactive material that will bond with the human body.
During the healing process, the implant and bone will fuse. You may see some implants shaped like cylinders, posts, or screws. At Smile Studio, your prosthetic tooth will be made of porcelain or a resin-type composite.
Composite resin fillings are Dr. Carter’s preferred method of treating cavities in Zachary because the color of your filling matches the natural shade of your tooth, making the filling hard to see.
These tooth-colored fillings make your teeth much stronger. In the past, dentists only used them for small to mid-sized cavities, but at Smile Studio, we use new composite materials that provide strong and reliable restoration, even on molars!
There’s also less drilling required with modern fillings so that Dr. Carter can preserve more of your natural tooth.
What Is Restorative Dentistry?
Missing a tooth can upset the balance of your otherwise healthy mouth. Your bite can become uneven, your teeth can shift in unpredictable directions, and your face can age more quickly.
At Smile Studio, we use restorative dentistry to replace missing teeth and enhance your natural smile. Dr. Carter and his team stay up-to-date with the latest in treatments and technology to ensure you have a positive experience from start to finish.
