Restore your smile with NC cosmetic dentistry and restorative procedures from our experienced team by calling 919-460-9061 today.  

A healthy, beautiful smile is essential for your self-confidence and overall health. Sometimes, oral health issues like tooth decay and missing teeth can create significant long-term problems and impact your self-image. Thankfully, restorative dental treatments are available to improve your smile as well as your teeth and gums.  

Smile Forever Family Dentistry practices restorative dentistry in Morrisville, NC. Drs. Tina Murray and Jimin Oh lead a team of knowledgeable and educated dental professionals who care about healthy teeth and gums. At our state-of-the-art dental facility, we provide various treatments to restore smiles and teeth. 

Dental Crowns 

When a person has significant tooth decay, a chipped tooth, or a tooth fracture, we can restore the tooth’s integrity with dental crowns. Crowns are tooth-colored caps that surround a damaged tooth. Not only will the treatment reinforce a weak tooth and prevent bacteria from causing further decay, but it will also enhance the tooth’s overall appearance.

 

To make a dental crown, we first take an impression of the damaged tooth with dental mold. The mold goes to a lab so that a dental technician can craft a custom crown in the shape of the problematic tooth. 

When the crown is ready, one of our dentists will attach it to the tooth using dental-grade cement. The fixture won’t affect your daily activities like eating and drinking, and it will last for about 15 years. 

Dentures 

If you’re missing your natural teeth, you can replace them with dentures, another popular form of restorative dentistry in Morrisville, NC. Dentures are oral fixtures that contain artificial gums and teeth.  We offer two types of dentures: 

  1. Complete Dentures: This type is for patients missing most or all of their teeth on their lower or upper jaws. The denture replaces a complete set of teeth.  

  2. Partial Dentures: For people only missing a few teeth, a partial denture is beneficial. The artificial teeth remain in place with a metal framework and clasps that attach to neighboring teeth.

 

Dentures are an effective, non-invasive way to restore missing teeth. Unfortunately, missing teeth can cause people to develop a sunken-in appearance to their cheeks and jawbone deterioration. Complete and partial dentures prevent these issues while simultaneously restoring your smile. 

Root Canals 

Root canal therapy is the treatment of tooth root infections and inflammation. The inner part of a tooth contains soft tissue with nerves and blood vessels. When the nerve has an impaction, it can create severe toothaches, swelling, and infection. Signs you need a root canal include: 

  • Extreme pain when chewing 

  • Discoloration on the affected tooth 

  • Extreme temperature sensitivities 

 

A root canal treatment will eliminate traces of infection from your tooth’s root. After the procedure is complete, we will fit the tooth with a permanent dental crown to protect it.
