Life can be tough on your smile’s appearance and integrity, though you can restore its radiance, function, and strength through custom and compassionate restorative dentistry services from Dr. Sexton.
If your smile isn’t as bright or white as you’d like it to be, professional whitening can help you dramatically create a whiter, more youthful-looking smile. We have a variety of whitening options to meet your needs
Bonding is the strategic application of tooth-colored composite resin to correct minor gaps and restore teeth that are discolored, cracked, or chipped. During treatment, Dr. Sexton sculpts composite resin on to targeted teeth, which strongly bonds to the enamel of your teeth. As it requires little to no preparation, bonding preserves your natural tooth structure and can often be completed in a single visit.
Dental bridges restore your smile’s functional and aesthetic integrity by “bridging the gap” created by a missing tooth or multiple missing adjacent teeth. Bridges are anchored to existing teeth, crowns, or dental implants on either side of the missing tooth or teeth and are made of lifelike porcelain or a combination of metal and porcelain. Along with making your smile look and feel complete, bridges restore lost oral function, keep your bite healthy, and prevent your natural teeth from shifting out of place and wearing down unevenly.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
Dentures and partial dentures are a set of removable prosthetic teeth that are designed to replace an entire arch or several missing teeth. Customized to fit comfortably, dentures and partial dentures have an acrylic base that matches the color of your gums and acrylic teeth that complement your facial features and match any remaining natural teeth. A full denture is held in place by suction or a special denture adhesive, while a partial denture is securely held in place with special clips and brackets.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed in the jaw to replace the tooth roots of one or more missing teeth and provide a sturdy foundation for one or more prosthetic teeth. Along with offering the most lifelike feel, function, and appearance, dental implants prevent jawbone deterioration and won’t shift out of place when you chew or speak. When replacing a single tooth, you’ll receive a single dental implant that supports a porcelain zirconia crown. When replacing several adjacent teeth, you’ll receive two or more dental implants that support a porcelain or porcelain and metal dental bridge.
Used to replace an entire arch of upper or lower teeth, implant-supported dentures are securely anchored to two to eight dental implants using a support bar and attachment clips. Implant-supported dentures are indistinguishable from natural teeth, stay firmly in place without the use of adhesives, are easy to remove for daily cleaning, and require minimal routine maintenance.
