What If I Do Nothing?
If you aren’t experiencing any pain or dysfunction, why not just ignore a small cavity or cracked tooth? While many people think this is the most budget-friendly approach, the truth is that damaged teeth always get worse over time without professional intervention. Even minor decay or damage can lead to extreme pain or even tooth loss, forcing a patient to get much more costly procedures to fix. For both your oral health and your wallet, it’s always wise to visit a dentist at the earliest sign of a problem.
Dental crowns are both extremely versatile as well as incredibly effective when it comes to addressing all types of dental issues. With one, Dr. Pogue can repair major cavities, put broken teeth back together, strengthen a root canal treated tooth, and even replace a missing tooth when paired with a dental implant. These restorations are shaped to look and function just like natural teeth, and they are fitted directly over a compromised tooth to protect it while also bringing back its original strength and appearance.
If you have a minor cavity, Dr. Pogue will use composite resin to replace the decayed enamel as opposed to traditional amalgam. This substance is more malleable, meaning it can be placed into a tooth while preserving as much healthy enamel as possible, plus it can be shaded to blend seamlessly into a patient’s smile. That way, a patient doesn’t have to worry about friends or coworkers noticing their dental work whenever they eat or speak.
One Visit Restorations
We use in-house CEREC technology to streamline the smile repair process. Now, instead of a patient having to visit the dentist twice and get a messy impression to receive a crown, we simply scan the tooth and digitally design the crown, and then it’s made right in our office with a milling machine. Dr. Pogue then bonds the crown into place, and the entire appointment usually takes about an hour. With CEREC, patients can save time without compromising on the quality of their care in the slightest.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
If you have several dental problems and think it’s too late for your smile, we invite you to give Pleasant Valley Dentistry a call without a second thought. Dr. Pogue is able to rebuild even the most damaged teeth using a full mouth reconstruction, helping patients recover their bite and confidence at the same time. He’ll put together a personalized treatment plan designed for your unique situation, combining multiple procedures that will improve your health and appearance to give you the strong and attractive smile you deserve.
