Repair & Revive Your Smile
With Restorative Dentistry from Ramsey Dental Group
Damage and deterioration occur in your mouth over time. Most people need fillings, crowns, and rout canals as time goes by. Restorative dentistry from the Ramsey Dental Group team (Dr. Ramsey, Dr. Gilmore, and Dr. DuVall) is so extremely beneficial to maintaining both your oral and overall health.
Restorative dentistry is made up of a variety of services that, just as the name suggests, are designed to repair and rejuvenate your smile to help preserve your natural teeth as much as possible.
These are just some of the customized treatments we offer to our patients:
We combine our cosmetic and restoration skills to give your smile the care it needs to be functional and healthy. You will feel at ease no matter what kind of procedure you need, with a smile that looks natural thanks to virtually undetectable restorations made of high-quality materials.
Even the smallest cavities can mean big trouble for your teeth. They can deteriorate and damage your enamel at a rapid rate, leaving you in pain and unable to enjoy the foods you love.
This is why dental fillings are so important. Fillings can seal off cavities and holes caused by decay to prevent any further problems. This effective treatment is extremely common. In fact, most people need at least one filling in their lifetime.
Whether you need treatment for one tooth or multiple teeth, we can help. Our team uses both amalgam and composite fillings to fix your cavity or cavities in one easy, pain-free visit. You’ll leave our office with a smile that looks and feels healthy.
Another effective, common restorative fix for a damaged tooth is a crown. Crowns are “caps” that completely cover a tooth for protection and added durability. Unlike partials and dentures, crowns are not removable after they are bonded to your tooth’s surface. Crowns also have cosmetic benefits because of their ability to improve appearance and alignment. Crowns are often used to:
Because we use only the finest, high-quality materials, people won’t be able to tell you have a crown. We make sure your new crown or crowns perfectly match the color of your natural teeth, for a smile that’s even and healthy.
Often times, after we examine patients, we find they have a tooth that is too damaged to support a filling but not quite damaged enough to require a crown. This is where inlays and onlays can be very beneficial.
Inlays and onlays are the exact same kind of restoration, the only difference is what part of the tooth they cover. An inlay fills the space between the cusp of your tooth and is actually very similar to a traditional filling. An onlay provides more substantial support to your damaged tooth by covering one or more cusps on your tooth. Onlays are similar in function to a dental crown. If cared for properly, inlays and onlays can last for decades. The Ramsey Dental Group team uses porcelain inlays and onlays that are customized just for you and colored to naturally match your smile so that no one will ever know you’ve had any work done!
When you’re missing one tooth or multiple teeth, a dental bridge can be a viable solution that will help bring back full function to your smile. A bridge is very important because it offers much-needed support for the teeth that are adjacent to a missing tooth or teeth.
Because your teeth are designed to work with each other, when there’s a tooth missing, the teeth that are nearby can move or become damaged. Even your teeth in the opposite jaw can be affected. This means your bite and jaw are more susceptible to stress and possible pain.
Bridges are typically made of porcelain and are virtually undetectable once they are placed in your mouth. They’re easy to care for and will last for years.
Comfortable, affordable dentures and partials are available to you at Ramsey Dental Group. If you’re missing a few teeth or have teeth that are deteriorating, maybe you’re already considering custom dentures or a partial to restore your smile. We’re happy to take the time to understand your needs and goals to develop a treatment plan that works for you.
Partial dentures are a great way to replace a few missing teeth, while still preserving your remaining natural teeth. Partials are generally removable and feature replacement teeth and an acrylic base that is the color of your gums. Most partials are held in place by a clasp that attaches to your natural teeth. Your partial will need to be cleaned every day to maintain proper functionality.
Customized dentures are an excellent option for replacing a full set of teeth — either top, bottom, or both arches. Replacement teeth are carefully crafted to fit your mouth and to look natural. They’re attached to an acrylic base that mimics your natural gumline. If you’re interested in learning about how dentures can help restore your smile, please schedule an appointment so we can talk.
One of the most durable, reliable solutions for replacing a missing or failing tooth is a dental implant. At Ramsey Dental Group, we can place and restore dental implants so you get all the care you need from a team you can trust, in the convenience of our friendly office — no referrals are needed.
Dental implants are made up of an artificial tooth root usually made of titanium that’s precisely placed and allowed time for your bone to grow around it. Once it’s healed, a replacement tooth or crown can be permanently placed on top to bring your smile back to full functionality. Dental implants are an excellent option for tooth replacement because of their ability to mimic a tooth root. This helps to deter possible bone loss and changes to your facial structure.
There’s no cookie-cutter solution for full mouth reconstruction because this kind of phased treatment is specifically tailored to suit your needs.
We will take the health of each one of your teeth into consideration and decide what procedures will work best to make your smile complete and healthy again. Together with you, our team of dental professionals will create a plan of action and go over your treatment time frame with you.
