Life has a way of wearing out your teeth from the moment they come in. Whether you’ve suffered from tooth decay, trauma, or simple wear and tear due to everyday life, damaged or lost teeth happen! No matter how your smile has suffered, you don’t need to let the damage get the best of you. Our New Orleans dentist can help with restorative dentistry.
7 O’Clock Dental offers a variety of advanced restorative dentistry techniques can repair, replace, and supplement your smile whether you just need a filling or a full set of new teeth. We’re confident we have the perfect dental restoration to suit you!
Cavities are a part of life – chances are you or someone you know has had one! In the past, fillings were made of metal amalgam and were a dull grey color. These fillings were great at restoring your health, but not so great at restoring the look of your original smile!
Today’s fillings are made of dental composite and can be perfectly colored to match your teeth! We offer these great, natural looking fillings at our New Orleans office so that you never have to worry about your restorations ruining the look of your smile!
Crowns and Bridges
When a tooth is damaged due to trauma or decay, you might think it needs to be pulled, but that isn’t always the case! Crowns and bridges are tried and true dental restorations that are used to protect and restore damaged or lost teeth.
Crowns cover a tooth that has been too damaged to be fixed with a filling.We’ll reshape your tooth so that it fits perfectly under a porcelain restoration that is permanently secured in place. We can match the color of your crown to seamlessly blend with your teeth!
If you’ve lost a tooth, we can craft a bridge that will match your smile so well that no one will notice! A bridge consists of a false tooth connected to two crowns. We’ll reshape the abutment teeth next to the missing one and attach your bridge permanently in place. You’ll be able to chew and speak with ease!
You might think veneers are just for cosmetic dentistry, but that isn’t the case! When you chip or damage an otherwise healthy tooth, a veneer can cover it! We’ll take an impression of your teeth that our dental lab will use to craft a restoration sure to make you smile no matter the blemish!
Dental Implant Restoration
A lost tooth can mean eventual bone loss that can start a domino effect of lost teeth! The most advanced method of saving your teeth and bones is a dental implant! Implants are made of titanium and are placed directly into your jaw, mimicking the function of your teeth’s natural roots. At 7 O’Clock Dental, we restore implants using finely-crafted porcelain crowns that will match your smile with precision you never thought possible!
If you’ve lost some or all of your teeth, we can provide you with a great set of dentures! We’re able to build partial and full sets that will fit you like a glove! Our custom fit dentures can be adjusted to give you the exact fit you need. You’ll be amazed at the precision and stability of our dentures!
Non-Surgical Gum Disease Treatment
Gum disease can be a frightening prospect – plaque works its way below your gum line and causes havoc for your gums! Thankfully, treating gum disease is far easier than its name implies. We have several non-surgical solutions to treating gum disease, all of which have great records of success!
The most common gum disease treatment is root planing and scaling. Using a series of special tools, we go below your gumline to remove plaque and tartar. We also smooth out the uneven surfaces of your tooth to eliminate the places that bacteria can hide. We couple this treatment with Arestin, a specially formulated slow-release antibiotic that eliminates any remaining bacteria and prevents infection from coming back!
Root Canal Therapy
Root canals have a bad reputation for being painful, but it’s actually quite the opposite! Root canals are used to clean out infected dental pulp at the center of an infected tooth, relieving pain and preventing the spread of infection to the rest of your mouth!
We perform root canals at our New Orleans dentist office to help protect your mouth and eliminate discomfort – don’t believe the rumors you hear about this pain-relieving procedure!
Restorative dentistry can not only get your natural, healthy-looking smile back but can also relieve pain and discomfort that you’ve been feeling for years!
