Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry serves to remedy the effects of damaged, cracked, chipped, worn, or unsightly teeth. The benefit of these necessary treatments is that our treatments will improve your appearance as well as help you regain your oral health.

Your dental health affects your overall well-being. Decay, damage, and disease can jeopardize your smile and put you at risk for health complications. City Smiles offers a variety of restorative therapies to renew your smile and improve your quality of life.

Dr. Chris Hill uses esthetically pleasing tooth-colored fillings and all-ceramic crowns to return form and function to compromised teeth. If you have a tooth with a damaged nerve, Dr. Chris Hill may perform a root canal to save your tooth from extraction. To replace missing teeth, we offer dental implants, crown and bridgework, and dentures and partials.


Restorative Dentistry Procedures

 

Fillings

Cavities, chips, and fractures occur on any tooth surface throughout the mouth. Composite filling material provides a versatile solution to many common problems. Blended into a prepared area, the composite polishes to a smooth, undetectable surface.

Onlays

Teeth rarely fracture in a perfectly predictable way. Sometimes a break is too big for a filling, but not big enough for a crown. Porcelain onlays provide an excellent solution for teeth that need extra reinforcement without being covered entirely.  Bonded into a place, they provide years of natural feel, function, and esthetics.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are used to restore badly damaged teeth. Also called dental caps, these restorations are matched for color and resemble your natural teeth.

Root Canals

While many patients are concerned about root canals, modern techniques often make this procedure as quick and simple as any other procedure.  Infected teeth in danger of removal can be disinfected and filled with a sealer, leaving a safe solution for problematic situations.

Periodontal Care

Gum disease continues to be the leading cause of tooth loss in adults today.  A devastating condition when left untreated, periodontitis doesn’t have to write your story.  But a strategic approach with focused treatment and home care is essential to control this chronic bacterial infection. Plus, this disease can aggravate other serious medical conditions that may seem unrelated to your mouth.
