Your teeth are strong, but over time they will eventually start to show signs of wear. You can take the best possible care of your teeth and still develop decay and damage that needs to be addressed as quickly as possible.
Dr. Cody Gronsten and Dr. Melissa Maier invest many hours each year in continuing education to learn everything they can about fixing damaged smiles. Whether you need just a few fillings or a full smile makeover, the professional team at Dental Health Partners can help!
Dental wear and damage can be the result of several things. Most commonly, decay develops and needs to be addressed. Wherever you are with your dental health needs, we’ll take the time to sit and talk with you because your concerns and desires are very important to us. We’ll talk to you about your goals and tell you what you need to know about your treatment. But the final decision about treatment is always yours.
Restorative dentistry at Dental Health Partners is basically any treatment that repairs a damaged or decayed tooth. This can be as simple as a tooth-colored filling or may include a combination of treatments that give you back your healthy smile.
So many different solutions are available! This means that we can come up with a customized treatment plan to correct just about any problem you might experience. Of course, every case is unique, and that's why our skilled doctors will design a treatment plan that is just right for you.
Here are just a few of the restorative services we offer:
Tooth-Colored Composite Fillings – They’re our choice for dental fillings, but the same material can also be used to repair chips, cracks, and even some fractures in your teeth.
Crowns and Bridges – Crowns and bridges are two of the most common restorative treatments we offer. Crowns are worn over your teeth like a cap to protect and strengthen it. You can get an idea of our commitment to placing long-lasting crowns here. A bridge uses crowns to replace missing teeth. The missing tooth or teeth are replaced by a special type of crown called a pontic, and the whole appliance is held in place by crowns affixed to the adjacent teeth.
Dental Implants and Dentures – Are you missing several teeth? You might benefit from complete or partial dentures. Dental implants are a standalone tooth replacement and can also be used to hold dentures securely in place.
Porcelain Veneers – Many people think of veneers as a cosmetic treatment. However, porcelain veneers are very effective for fixing a wide variety of problems, including broken, chipped, discolored, or unevenly spaced teeth.
Teeth Whitening – When your teeth are as healthy as they can be, there's nothing like a professional teeth whitening treatment to put the finishing touch on your new smile!
No matter which problems are causing you concern, we have the options you need to get your oral health back on track. We believe that you should also be an active partner in your care, and we'll work together with you to give you the information you need while we learn about the goals you want to achieve.
The best place to start is by scheduling an appointment for a personal consultation. Once we understand the current condition of your teeth, we can make appropriate suggestions and work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan.
