Preventive dentistry is the practice of caring for your teeth to keep them healthy. This helps to avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more.
Dentures, or false teeth, are fixed or removable replacements for teeth. Tooth replacement becomes necessary when the tooth and its roots have been irreparably damaged.
Crowns and inlays/onlays are intended to repair damage to individual teeth. They replace tooth structure lost by decay or injury, protect the part of the tooth that remains, and restore the tooth’s shape and function.
Cosmetic, or esthetic, dentistry focuses on improving appearance and facial self-image by correcting the alignment, shape, and color of teeth. L&B Dental offers cosmetic options that can improve the appearance of stained, chipped, and misshapen teeth, and correct uneven gums and replace old fillings with nearly invisible filling materials.
ROOT CANAL THERAPY
Inflamed or infected pulp most often causes a toothache. To relieve the pain and prevent further complications, the tooth may be extracted or saved by root canal treatment. Once root canal treatment is performed, the patient must have a crown placed over the tooth to protect it.
