The field of restorative dentistry covers a wide range of dental services that are all aimed at helping patients restore their oral health and boost their confidence.
Restorative dental care can help patients who have experienced tooth loss, tooth decay, gum disease, or oral trauma. From simple procedures like dental fillings to more complex treatments like replacing missing teeth with dental prosthetics, top restorative treatments at our Seattle dental office can help get your smile back!
Our dental restorations include:
Dental crowns are “caps” that restore damaged teeth by covering them down to the gum line. Lab-made crowns use the highest-quality materials and are created by a dental technician at a state-of-the-art dental lab. To begin the dental crown process, your dentist will trim and shape your damaged tooth to make it an ideal base for attaching your new crown. Then, we’ll take impressions of your bite before sending it to the lab where your restoration will be crafted to your unique specifications.
While you’re waiting for your permanent crown, we’ll provide you with a temporary crown to wear in the meantime. Once it has been completed, the lab will send us your finished crown, and you’ll return to our Seattle office for the final placement. Before securing your dental crown, we’ll make sure it fits perfectly and make any necessary adjustments so your new smile looks great, feels comfortable, and functions seamlessly.
Our Seattle dental office creates the highest quality lab-made crowns using durable and tooth-colored materials such as:
Dental Inlays and Onlays
Dental inlays and onlays can improve both the look and function of your smile. Dental inlays are used to restore part of a damaged tooth that is too large for a dental filling, but not large enough to require a crown. Dental onlays are similar, though they are used to restore the chewing surface of a tooth. They can be crafted from gold, porcelain, composite resin, or another tooth-colored material.
At Evergreen Smile Studio, we utilize the power of dental bonding to enhance and strengthen teeth with chips or gaps. Our expertly shade-matched, tooth-colored materials provide a seamless and natural-looking appearance. The great news is that numbing or adjusting the tooth is unnecessary for many patients.
A dental bridge is a fixed prosthetic that can be used to replace one or several missing teeth in a row. To place a dental bridge, crowns must be placed on the teeth surrounding the gap in your grin to support the bridge.
Dental bridges come with several advantages, like reduced sensitivity from exposed roots. And because they’re supported by your natural teeth, they can improve your ability to chew and speak comfortably.
Dr. Rebekah's expertise in implant dentistry allows her to replace lost or missing teeth with state-of-the-art dental implants that mimic natural teeth' look, feel, and function. The dental implant consists of a titanium post that acts as an anchor, permanently placed into the jawbone. A solid dental crown, or restoration, is attached just below the gum line, completing the natural appearance.
We offer the following dental implant systems at Evergreen Smile Studio:
- Single Dental Implants
- Implant-Retained Overdentures (similar to All-on-4®)
- Hybrid Dental Implants
Dentures are removable dental appliances that are designed to replace missing teeth and gum tissue. Partial dentures can be a solution for patients that are missing one or a several of their natural teeth. Full dentures are used to replace a full arch of missing teeth. Dentures can be made from a variety acrylic and composite materials, and are held in place with suction, dental adhesive, or a metal framework that clips into your remaining healthy teeth, resulting in a convenient, affordable way to restore your complete smile.
Dental fillings are one of the most common restorative dental procedures to repair decayed teeth affected by cavities or other oral health issues. The choice of filling material depends on factors like the location, extent of the damage, and overall oral health.
Materials such as composite resin, gold alloys, metal amalgam, porcelain, and glass ionomer cement can be used. By using tooth-colored dental fillings, Dr. Rebekah ensures that the filling material perfectly blends with your existing teeth, providing a natural-looking result. We are an amalgam-free dental office, prioritizing using the safest possible materials for your dental treatments.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy involves removing the pulp from the inside of an infected or damaged tooth. Although it is most common to receive a root canal on a molar or premolar, the procedure can be done on any of your teeth.
A successful root canal results in the removal of all traces of infection from the tooth, and filling the empty space, usually with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. This helps to stop the spread of infection, and can also help keep the tooth strong to prevent future problems. At Evergreen Smile Studio, we’ll always try to save your natural teeth whenever possible, and a root canal may help you avoid more invasive procedures in the future.
To perform a root canal, your dentist will use specialized ultrasonic instruments or hand files to clean out all infected tissue within the tooth, then irrigating the canals with an antibacterial solution. Once the infection has been removed and the tooth has been filled, most patients can expect to receive a dental crown to protect the tooth.
