Restorative Dentistry Can Rebuild Your Smile
If you have suffered tooth loss, dental implants provide the best support for restorations. These posts are surgically implanted in the jawbone to replace lost tooth roots. For the right patients, we can place and restore an entire dental arch in a single visit, using only four implants.
When a tooth is compromised by trauma, infection, or decay, a dental crown can strengthen and protect it. This "cap" covers the entire surface of the tooth to improve its function and appearance. We offer metal-free traditional and implant-supported crowns that are designed to blend with your smile.
If you are missing adjacent teeth, a dental bridge can restore your smile, so you can chew and speak comfortably again. Bridges consist of one or more replacement teeth, which attach to adjacent healthy teeth or implants. We use zirconia and porcelain bridges for durability and aesthetics.
We recommend inlays and onlays when a tooth has been compromised by decay or damage. This option is appropriate when a filling is not sufficient, but a crown would be excessive. We use our iTero® intraoral scanner to carefully design your restoration and ensure it fits properly in your smile.
If tooth decay progresses to the inner pulp, a root canal can salvage the healthy portion of the tooth, so you can avoid tooth loss and extraction. During treatment, we can remove infected tissue, fill the tooth, and seal it. For improved aesthetics, we can also bleach the inside of the tooth.
If you have lost most or all of your teeth, we can restore the function and allure of your smile with dentures. We offer partial and full dentures, as well as traditional and implant-supported restorations to meet your unique needs. Dentures can renew your ability to speak and eat with confidence.
At Nordhus Dentistry, we offer only tooth-colored, metal-free fillings. Unlike amalgam fillings, tooth-colored material is preferred for its aesthetics and its safety. These fillings blend seamlessly within your natural teeth and do not alter in shape or structure with changing temperatures.
