Dr. Beth Loew Offers Restorative Dentistry Options for Patients
We seek to restore your smile and your dental health. Our restorative dentistry options can rebuild your teeth with porcelain crowns or porcelain veneers, repair your gums with periodontal therapy, and renew your overall oral health.
What kind of restorative dentistry options are available? We can fix broken, weakened teeth with crowns and fillings, amend a severely impaired smile with full-mouth reconstruction, fill in smile gaps with a crown, bridge, dentures, or partials, and prevent bone loss with dental implant restorations.
Crowns and Fillings: Crowns and fillings can be used to repair a myriad of tooth problems, including broken, fractured, and stained teeth. Tooth decay, root canal infections, or gum disease can destroy the strength, function, and beauty of your natural teeth. We use tooth-colored composite-resin fillings or porcelain crowns to restore a damaged tooth.
Full-Mouth Reconstructions: For limited cases, Dr. Beth Loew can do a full-mouth reconstruction. This restorative dentistry service often requires multiple procedures to fix several oral health issues including damaged, discolored, and missing teeth as well as gum disease or other soft tissue problems.
Dr. Beth Loew and her expert dental team offer cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry services for Ohio patients in Upper Arlington, Grandview, Hilliard, Dublin, and Columbus. Call for your appointment today!
Porcelain Crowns Return Beauty and Function to Natural Teeth
We can cover a myriad of dental problems with porcelain crowns. Porcelain crowns, also known as dental caps, are used to cover natural teeth that are damaged or weakened.
There are plenty of cosmetic dentistry issues that can be fixed with porcelain crowns. For example, crowns can be used to:
- Protect a tooth weakened by decay
- Hold a severely cracked tooth together
- Support a tooth with a large filling
- Restore a broken or worn tooth
- Cover up a discolored tooth
- Retain a dental prosthesis or dental implant
Porcelain is a durable material that reflects light in the same way as enamel. The light reflection is one of the reasons why porcelain looks so much like natural tooth structure. A porcelain crown is a restorative dentistry option that is not only strong and functional, but is also resistant to staining.
Making Your Smile Whole Again with Crowns and Bridges
Has your smile been adversely affected by tooth loss? Maybe you’ve suffered from a dental trauma, severe tooth decay, tooth infection, or gum disease … and it cost you one or more teeth.
We can fill in those gaps and make your smile whole again. How?
A dental bridge replaces a missing tooth. The replacement tooth is made from porcelain and is attached to the neighboring teeth, anchoring the bridge into place. Dental bridges can also restore dental implants. You care for your dental bridge with daily oral hygiene routine and dental exams.
Dentures and Partial Dentures
For those patients with more extensive tooth loss, partial and full dentures are often the best solution. Partial dentures are crafted from a series of replacement teeth set into a gum colored base that snaps into position between existing teeth like a puzzle piece. A full denture is an arch of prosthetic teeth set into a more extensive gum colored base that is crafted to stay in place through suction between the denture and natural gum and bone tissue.
