While we do everything in our power to save patient's tooth, we extract teeth in our office as a last resort. Tooth extraction is often indicated in cases of a deep cavity, vertical fracture, severe bone loss, or trauma and pathology of various kinds.
I always recommend patients to try whitening products over the counter first. Often they achieve satisfactory results and improve the shade of the teeth. But if the ultimate goal is to have a sparkling and brilliant smile, then you need a reliable enough teeth whitening solution at our Bridgeport Dental office.
A dental crown is a cap that surrounds the tooth. We typically use a crown to restore a damaged tooth with a large defect, but they can also use it to improve the appearance of a smile.
A root canal becomes a treatment option when a tooth has gross decay, and the infection reaches the centre of the tooth. Inside the centre of the tooth are nerves, blood vessels, all of which becomes very painful when infected.
Dentures are a reliable solution to replace missing teeth. Patients ask about dentures on a daily basis at my office. There are pros and cons to dentures. Pros: no surgery, can be a quick process. cons: does not feel like natural teeth, a separate appliance that can become loose.
Dental implants have seen an enormous rise in popularity since the 1990s. Dental Implant is now the gold standard in tooth replacement therapy. Of all available tooth replacement therapies, dental implant best mimics the form and function of natural dentition.
A dental filling is one of the most commonly performed procedures in our Bridgeport Dental Office. We place mostly composite (tooth shade) fillings in our office, depending on the patient and the position of the filling, each filling is completed in about 30 minutes.
Our staff will not judge you even if you have a lack of prior dental care, we're more than happy to get you up to speed.
