Living with damaged teeth is never a good thing. Not only does it affect your overall appearance, but it also impacts your overall dental health as well. Here with our Homestead cosmetic dentist, Robert Cuckler, DDS, PA, you have some options when it comes to seeking dental help. If you are looking to replace damaged teeth and restore your smile, Dr. Cuckler can offer you a variety of different treatment options and will help you find the one that suits your needs the best.
When it comes to restoring damaged teeth, there are several different options and they all depend on the nature of your dental health and the state of your damaged teeth. If teeth are cracked, broken or chipped, then dental crowns or caps may be all that is required. Dental crowns are synonymous with dental caps, and are essentially a tooth-colored resin that is applied to the tooth in order to restore its shape and function. Dental crowns and caps can be used after root canal therapy, to fix a broken or chipped tooth, to restore an uneven tooth, to prevent a cracked tooth from cracking any further and causing more damage, and they can even be applied to cover up stained tooth roots as well. If your teeth are in more dire shape, then they may need to be removed entirely. If the tooth cannot be salvaged, there are still several options available to you here with our Homestead cosmetic dentist. Robert Cuckler, DDS, PA can offer bridges, dentures or dental implants. Bridges can help literally bridge the gap between teeth and are great for people who are missing only a few teeth. Dentures are appliances where artificial teeth are set into a gum-like base that can be set onto the gums with an adhesive paste. Dental implants are artificial teeth that are surgically inserted into your jawbone.
If you want to replace damaged teeth, Robert Cuckler, DDS, PA can help you figure out which method is best for you and your dental needs. Our Homestead cosmetic dentist can offer you comprehensive care and an evaluation that will help determine whether dental crowns, bridges, dentures or dental implants can help you restore your smile.
