Damaged, discolored, or decayed teeth can seriously affect your self-esteem. More importantly, they can mean bad news for your overall health. Through our restorative dentistry treatments, our team at Dental Faith can give you a healthy, comfortable smile that you’ll be proud of for years to come.
For our fillings, we use what is called a composite resin. A composite filling is a tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture used to restore decayed teeth. Composites are also used for cosmetic improvements of the smile by changing the color of the teeth or reshaping disfigured teeth.
Dental implants are a good replacement for damaged or missing teeth. They look, feel, and function like a natural tooth and will help you keep your smile for a long time.
Partials & Dentures
Removable partials and dentures are for patients who are missing some of their teeth on a particular arch. Flexible partials are virtually invisible because there are no metal clasps. Designed to look like your natural teeth, they are aesthetically pleasing and comfortable.
Full dentures are used to replace all upper or lower teeth. Their purpose is to provide support for cheeks and lips and to improve the patient’s ability to speak and eat. We offer both immediate and conventional dentures. Immediate dentures are made before teeth are removed, placed the day of surgery after the teeth have been removed, and used until the tissue heals completely (8-12 weeks after removal of teeth). A conventional denture is made and placed when the gum tissue is healed.
Although you do your best to keep your teeth clean and healthy, there are times when sensitivity and pain reach a point that may require more extensive treatment. This is when a root canal is needed. This process involves the removal of the nerve from the inside of the tooth and roots in order to relieve pain. When the root canal is complete, a crown will be added as the final restoration of the tooth.
If you have noticed your teeth becoming yellow and dull over the years and are dissatisfied with their appearance, you should consider a whitening treatment. You might achieve the bright smile you desire! We provide a take home whitening treatment so you can lighten the shade of your smile comfortably at home. We can work together to create a treatment plan to brighten your teeth and keep them looking healthy and natural.
Once all cleaning and restorative work has been completed and your teeth are ready for the next step, we will refer you to an orthodontist. We work with the best in the Nashville area. These specialists take your smile to the next level and will help determine which technique is best for your needs moving forward.
