Natural-Looking, Metal-Free Fillings and Crowns
Restoring teeth with cavities, large older fillings, or broken teeth to their natural form and function is one of the many things we love to do here at Batchelor Dentistry. We use tooth-colored resin-based composite fillings and porcelain crowns to restore teeth, so your smile will look renewed. Not only do our metal-free dental restorations look more natural than metal, but they are also strong and more closely resemble the properties of actual teeth.
If you have one or more missing teeth that you would like to replace with something that looks and feels just like a natural tooth, dental implants could be a good option for you. A dental implant is a small titanium screw that is fitted into the bone where your tooth once was, and acts as the tooth root. A strong, tooth-colored crown fits securely on top of a dental implant so you can chew and smile again with confidence. Implants are versatile - they can support one replacement tooth or many, and can even provide retention for a denture!
Another option to replace one or more missing teeth is a porcelain bridge. Bridges rely on the teeth on either side of the missing tooth to anchor the replacement tooth, providing protection and support to the natural teeth as well as chewing strength and a natural look.
Dentures and Partials
Dr. Batchelor and Dr. Detrich offer several options to replace missing teeth with removable dentures. Complete dentures replace all of your teeth, and partial dentures work with your existing teeth. Advances in dental materials mean dentures can look great and feel more comfortable than ever before. And best of all, at Batchelor Dentistry, we can incorporate implants into the design of a new or existing denture for dentures that go in with a “snap” and stay securely in place!
