Restorative Dentistry Can Rebuild Your Smile
Dr. Hessberger places and restores dental implants, which are considered the best solution to tooth loss. These small titanium posts are embedded in the jawbone and act as anchors for restorations. In combination with a custom crown, bridge, or denture, implant posts can prevent jawbone atrophy.
A bridge can replace one or more adjacent missing teeth, renewing dental function and comfort. Dr. Hessberger offers traditional and implant-supported bridges. Traditional bridges are supported by crowns on adjacent healthy teeth. Implant-supported bridges rest on two or more dental implants.
A dental crown is a cap designed to strengthen a tooth compromised by damage or decay. This restoration can also replace a missing tooth when affixed to a dental implant. Dr. Hessberger works with a trusted dental laboratory to fabricate the highest quality dental crowns that look and feel natural.
Dentures can restore your smile after extensive tooth loss. We offer traditional and implant-supported dentures, which are custom-made to look and function like natural teeth. Traditional dentures are removable, and fit snugly around your gums. Implant-supported dentures attach to dental implants.
If you have mild to moderate dental decay, a filling can protect your smile. We use tooth-colored material, carefully selected to blend with your natural teeth. This composite resin also forms a stronger bond with your tooth for added support.
If you suffer from extensive dental decay or missing teeth, you may benefit from full mouth reconstruction. This treatment combines several procedures to enhance your smile and restore dental health. To develop a precise treatment plan, we can take x-rays and advanced computed tomography (CT) scans.
Inlays and onlays are more conservative than dental crowns, but can treat larger areas than dental fillings. These restorations are customized for a precise, stable fit and are crafted from tooth-colored materials for a natural appearance.
