Strong, Attractive Tooth-Colored Fillings
Do you have any metal fillings? Many adults do. After all, it was the accepted practice for many, many years.
But metal fillings aren’t very attractive, and even worse, they often contain unhealthy mercury. Metal fillings also expand and contract over time and can weaken or crack your tooth. Bacteria can get under a metal filling, causing more decay and damage.
Dr. Pitts uses a composite resin to fill cavities that is safer, stronger, and healthier for your teeth. With tooth-colored fillings, no one will know you ever had a cavity!
Porcelain Inlays and Overlays
If you’ve had a lot of metal fillings, they may be very small, fitting right inside the middle of your tooth. Other fillings may cover a majority of the tooth.
A porcelain inlay covers the top of your tooth, up to the cusp, or edge of your tooth. Onlays cover the top of the tooth and extend slightly over the edge of the tooth for additional strength and protection when needed.
Porcelain crowns are used to replace large, failing metal fillings, or when teeth are damaged and need extra protection and strength to restore them.
Dental Implant Restoration
Because of our reputation for excellence, many people turn to Dr. Chuck Pitts to create their implant restorations once the implant post that has been placed by an oral surgeon has healed.
Dr. Pitts offers an array of beautiful, natural-looking implant solutions:
- An implant crown can be crafted for a single tooth and blends with your natural teeth.
- An implant-supported bridge can replace several teeth and is permanently anchored to the implant posts for a beautiful and secure bridge.
- Implant-supported dentures help create a comfortable bite, reduce chances of bone loss, enhance aesthetics and improve your speech, without adhesives.
An implant restoration from Dr. Chuck Pitts can help you look great, chew your food securely, and feel younger.
Dentistry Without Apprehension: Feel Comfortable With Safe Sedation
- Do you have fear anticipating your visit to the dentist?
- Does your nervousness make it harder to achieve numbness?
- Do you avoid needles and shots?
- Are the noises and smells in a dentist’s office distressing for you
If any of those describe you, ask about our effective and safe sedation with nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide has been used for more than two centuries to relax patients for dental and minor medical procedures.
Smile Transformation in LaGrange: Full-Mouth Restoration
It isn’t always possible to restore just one or two teeth. Neglect, accidents, or other trauma can necessitate that every area of your mouth—gums, appearance, function, and balance of your jaw and bite—be treated and/or restored.
Right or wrong, we’re often judged by our appearance. A damaged smile can negatively impact your life in so many ways, but full-mouth restoration can improve your social life, help you advance at work, and change your outlook to one that’s entirely positive and self-confident.
Full-mouth restoration can include periodontal treatment, tooth repair and replacement, tooth bonding, implants, or dentures.
Repairing and restoring damaged smiles is why we’re here. Let us help you achieve what you want in life with a full-mouth restoration.
