Tooth-Colored Composite Fillings
Composite, or "tooth-colored" fillings are shaped and shaded to match with your natural teeth. These fillings feel great in your mouth and are basically undetectable to the eye. They are bonded directly to your teeth and very strong and durable. They usually allow Dr. Henson to leave more of the healthy tooth structure in place than with silver (amalgam) fillings.
Porcelain Crowns & Fixed Bridges
When teeth are chipped, cracked, or damaged, crowns can be placed over them to prevent further decay. Porcelain crowns are custom-made for a natural fit and color, allowing them to blend in with the rest of your teeth.
Root Canal Therapy (Endodontics)
If you're experiencing pain from an infected tooth, let Dr. Henson know! Although the term root canal usually instills fear into patients, it's misplaced now with the advances in dental technology which make dental care so much more comfortable. Root canals relieve pain from infection by removing the decayed soft tissue of the tooth. This also saves the tooth from needing to be extracted, and allows you to retain use of the tooth. A crown will be placed over the tooth to strengthen it and prevent further infection.
Complete & Partial Dentures
If your natural teeth have failed, replacing them with partial or full dentures can restore the function of your teeth for eating and talking again. Dr. Henson and her team can fabricate full or partial dentures that will fit your mouth and other teeth. Dentures not only restore function, but they can also help prevent bone loss and other health issues that arise when teeth are missing.
