A dental crown is a tooth-shaped restoration that simply fits over the top of a natural tooth, and with one, Dr. Ulasik can repair a large cavity, replace portions of a broken tooth, and even improve the appearance of an oddly shaped tooth. And, by attaching a crown to another prosthetic tooth, she can even fill in the gaps left by missing teeth, creating a stable and secure bridge. In either case, both restorations are completely custom-made for every patient.
Do you have numerous missing teeth that make your life a little less enjoyable every day? Are you constantly working around an ill-fitting denture? Today’s dental prosthetics are more comfortable, natural-looking, and durable than ever, and Dr. Ulasik is ready to give you a set of teeth you can finally trust. Whether you are missing a few teeth or an entire row, she’ll specially design a prosthetic just for you so that the next time you’re eating, speaking, or smiling, the last thing you’ll have to think about is your teeth.
It’s estimated that about 90% of the U.S. population will develop a cavity at one point or another, and should this ever include you, you can trust that Dr. Ulasik has the perfect solution. In just one appointment, she can give you a tooth-colored filling that is specially shaded to match your smile so it practically disappears in the mouth. Tooth-colored fillings are also much smaller than traditional ones, meaning less of the natural tooth has to be altered. This, in turn, will help the tooth maintain more of its strength and last much longer.
Do you have multiple dental problems and just don’t know where to start when it comes to fixing them? Are you currently dealing with numerous cavities, missing teeth, and bite problems? At Independence Dental, it’s never too late for anyone’s smile. With a full mouth reconstruction, Dr. Ulasik can put together a plan for you that combines multiple restorative and cosmetic treatments. With it, she can bring back the strength, health, and appearance of your smile all at the same time, restoring your confidence in the process.
In some cases, before we place a dental crown, fixed bridge, or other restoration option, we’ll need to remove a small amount of gum tissue to reveal enough underlying tooth structure to support your restoration. In order to preserve the natural, beautiful appearance of your smile, we may need to reshape surrounding soft tissue to maintain an even gum line after treatment. This restorative service is called crown lengthening. In most cases, we can easily perform this service during the preparation appointment for your dental restoration. In most cases, your soft tissue will be healed before you return to have your final restoration placed, leaving you with a flawlessly restored smile.
