When you experience unexpected dental damage, don’t panic! Our Saint Louis dentists provide the treatments that you need to reclaim your oral health. Keep reading to learn more about the various treatments that we use to help people of many ages enjoy healthy smiles again!

As you will see, no matter what your smile has been through, we can help you get back on track!

Let’s start by talking about how to address some very common dental problems—enamel chipping and cracking. Cracks and chips can be minor or severe, but no matter how they manifest, our team has effective solutions to suit our patients’ needs. Dental bonding, for example, can be used to fill in cracked enamel, and to rebuild chipped away enamel. Alternatively, you may want to use porcelain veneers to refresh and repair these teeth. If you have a tooth that has been severely damaged, we may recommend a customized dental crown to improve the function and appearance of your teeth.

The dreaded dental cavity can also wreak havoc on your smile, if left untreated. If your tooth has a minor cavity, our dental team may be able to repair it with a simple filling. For teeth with more extensive infections, our dentist will likely use a crown to rebuild your tooth after we remove the infection.

Sometimes dental damage is so extreme that the patient ends up losing his or her tooth. If you have a severe infection in an existing tooth, our dentist will try to save your tooth using root canal therapy. We also provide tooth replacement options to help people who are already missing teeth. Offering everything from dentures, to bridges, to dental implants, we can help you reclaim the healthy and whole smile that you have been dreaming of.

Don’t let dental damage get you down! Our team is here to help you get the restorative care that you need! Please call our Saint Louis dental office to get more information.
