Restorative Dentistry Makes Damaged Smiles Whole Again
Teeth can become chipped, cracked, broken, decayed, or even go missing altogether, creating all sorts of health and cosmetic problems that a person has to deal with on a daily basis. Fortunately for the citizen of Austin, these issues aren’t a big deal thanks to Parkfield Family Dental. Dr. Tijerina is able to repair even the most damaged teeth and replace missing ones as well using strong, natural-looking restorations. Whether you have a single tooth or a few that need a little help, he can provide the solutions you need to smile with complete confidence again. To start rebuilding your smile today, contact us for an appointment.
Crowns & Bridges
Crowns and bridges are two of the most useful and reliable treatments in all of dentistry. With them, we can restore a weakened or broken tooth to its original strength and appearance and even replace missing teeth. Each one is custom-made so that it will always blend into your smile.
Tooth-colored fillings are made of a material called composite resin, and they can be used to repair small cavities in ways that don’t alter the appearance of the tooth. The material can be specially shaded to match a patient’s enamel, making the filling practically invisible in the mouth.
Dentures & Partials
If you are tired of working around your missing teeth, custom-made dentures and partials can help you finally fill in the gaps. Partials (short for partial dentures) can replace multiple missing teeth while fitting in seamlessly with the remaining ones like a puzzle piece, while full dentures can help you bring back an entire row of teeth. No matter what your smile needs to be whole again, we can provide it, and we know you’ll love the results.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy enables us to relieve the most severe dental pain and save extremely damaged teeth at the same time. We typically need to use it when the interior of a tooth, called the dental pulp, has become damaged or infected. Thanks to modern dental techniques, including local anesthesia and sedation, this procedure is now virtually painless and should be nothing to fear. It will be the solution to your pain, not the cause!
While our primary mission is to help you keep all of your natural teeth for as long as possible, the best course of action sometimes is to simply remove one. This is often the case if:
- A tooth is too damaged to be restored
- Gum disease has weakened the bone supporting a tooth
- A baby tooth refuses to fall out naturally
- Room needs to be created for a denture and/or orthodontic treatment
We also partner with a local oral surgeon to perform save and effective wisdom teeth extraction. They will utilize IV sedation so that you’ll sleep through the entire procedure and wake up with no memory afterward. It doesn’t get any easier than that!
