At Ascent Dental, it is our goal to prevent major issues and problems with our patients teeth. We do, however offer restorative techniques and solutions for current and new patients to allow them to regain a happy, healthy smile.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped “caps” that can be placed over your tooth. A crown restores the tooth’s shape, size, strength and appearance. The dental crown is cemented into place on your tooth and it covers the visible portion of the tooth to protect and prolong the life of the tooth. It can help restore function and chewing capabilities to your whole mouth. A dental crown may be necessary to restore a broken tooth, improve esthetics, or protect a tooth after a root canal.
A filling is typically placed with a natural tooth-colored material after removing decay and cavities from the tooth. A filling is a relatively quick and simple procedure that can prevent teeth from breaking or hurting in the future due to an untreated cavity.
Invisalign treatment is the process of wearing a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. No brackets and wires, and none of the restrictions that come with metal braces.
Orthodontic treatment is a way of straightening or moving teeth, to improve the appearance of the teeth and the overall bite. It can also help the long-term health of your teeth, gums and joints, by spreading the biting pressure over all of your teeth.
The usual setup for dental bridges is to connect two dental crowns with a pontic (false) tooth. The two crowns allow a strong support for this “bridge” to exist and helps keep the other teeth from shifting out of position.
Ascent Dental provides tooth extractions, when needed, to prevent the spread of infection. Common reasons for extractions include severe tooth pain, dental abscesses, or fractured teeth.
A root canal is performed when the dentist removes the infected pulp and nerve in the root of the tooth, cleans and shapes the inside of the root canal, then fills and seals the space. Afterward, your dentist will place a crown on the tooth to protect and restore it to its original function.
