When a natural tooth needs to be rebuilt or replaced, dental crowns and bridges may be the ideal solution. Patients won’t have to worry about dark metals here in Red Bend – Dr. Silver uses only the most natural-looking dental ceramics that are free of potentially harmful mercury. These beautifully customized additions to your smile will help improve your self-confidence while also protecting and preserving your health.
Instead of traditional amalgam, our team is happy to provide a much more ideal restorative material for treating cavities: composite resin. This style of filling comes in a wide variety of shades that can be precisely matched to the patient’s natural enamel, allowing the addition to blend in seamlessly. Its flexible nature also allows for smaller fillings, which means we can preserve more of the healthy tooth and preserve the tooth’s overall longevity.
As an alternative sometimes available to place fillings without the use of a drill, air abrasion allows for much less invasive improvements. This advanced instrument will produce a high-velocity air stream combined with silica particles. Combined, they will steadily and comfortably remove decay from the tooth’s surface while also leaving all of its natural, healthy structure intact. Patients receiving an air abrasion filling don’t always need any injections or local anesthetic to remain comfortable. If an injection is necessary, however, Dr. Silver's years of experience and skill provides a painless experience.
Many older patients still have one or more traditional amalgam fillings within their teeth. This material contains a small amount of mercury, and it’s understandable that more and more people are starting to become concerned about the ill effects of being in such close proximity to a toxic substance. Contact Dr. Silver today and schedule a consultation – he can take a closer look at your current filling (s) and determine if removal and replacement is a viable option. We typically recommend removal if the current filling is significantly cracked, damaged, or just very old.
Rest assured that Dr. Silver will do everything in his power to help patients maintain strong, natural teeth for the entirety of their life. However, there are situations where the extraction of one or more teeth becomes an unfortunate necessity, such as when the structure is simply too damaged to be restored or when the patient’s overall health and wellbeing are threatened by the tooth’s continued existence.
Our team prioritizes gentleness and comfort throughout every stage of the removal process, and we will always take a great deal of care to leave the nearby soft tissue and bone material intact. Dr. Silver will administer ozone therapy to sterilize the surgical site, and we won’t waste any time helping you determine the best reconstructive solution to recomplete your smile.
