If you are embarrassed about the appearance of your smile, or are experiencing tooth sensitivity, pain and discomfort - we are here to help! Montgomery dentists Dr. Dominique Askew Shamburger and Dr. Carl Shamburger have extensive training in restorative techniques to address a wide range of dental challenges.
You don't have to live with missing teeth, poorly fitting dentures, or broken-down, discolored dental work. Restorative dentistry offers a number options to rebuild your smile:
Dental implants are fast-becoming the most popular solution for the replacement of missing teeth and denture stabilization. Designed to replace one or more missing teeth, the dental implant integrates with the jaw bone to serve as an artificial tooth root that is then restored with a crown, bridge or an implant-supported denture.
Dental Crowns & Bridges
When a filling is insufficient to repair a large area of decay, or an old filling has broken-down weakening the tooth, a dental crown can be used to restore its structural integrity. If one or more teeth are missing, a dental bridge supporting single or multiple crowns can preserve that space in the mouth by anchoring on each end to existing healthy teeth, or to dental implants.
Complete & Partial Dentures
Esthetic custom dentures can be designed to replace some or all missing teeth in an arch. Implant-secured dentures are a popular approach for denture-wearers; dental implants serve as an attachment to stabilize the denture and allow the patient to chew, smile and laugh with confidence.
Gum disease is a progressive periodontal condition that causes recession of gum tissue and supportive bone, eventually leading to tooth loss. If detected early, gum disease can be treated with non-surgical periodontal therapy and regular periodontal maintenance.
Root Canal Therapy
A root canal procedure can save a damaged or infected tooth and is usually the preferred treatment, rather than extraction. During a root canal, the nerve and infected tissue is removed and the root chamber is cleaned, disinfected and sealed, leaving the tooth structure intact. A protective restoration, such as a dental crown, is recommended following a root canal to add strength to the tooth and help prevent fracture. Learn more about Root Canal Therapy
Dental Bonding & Tooth-colored Fillings
Composite bonding is an economical approach for repairing minor flaws in front teeth, such as chipped edges, or spaces between teeth. Tooth-colored composite fillings may be also used to repair small areas of decay or damage on the chewing surfaces of back teeth.
