Restorative Dentist Creating Your New Smile
Most people take their teeth for granted. While that may be understandable, it's not wise. In reality, strong, healthy teeth are essential for maintaining overall health. That's why we’re committed to assisting patients in maintaining the strength, function, and use of their natural teeth for as long as possible. To do this, we work with the latest materials and methods available.
Some of our most popular restorative services include:
Inlays and Onlays
If you have a large filling you need to replace, a dental crown is sometimes the best solution. In other cases, an inlay or onlay may be more appropriate. Inlays and onlays are similar to fillings, but instead of being made from composite resin, they’re milled from porcelain the way a crown is. This ensures that your smile remains strong and healthy. And because your inlay/onlay will be made from porcelain, your restoration will blend in with your smile for discreet results.
Root Canal Therapy
If one of your teeth has developed an infection caused by a deep cavity or a traumatic injury, a root canal can help you save the tooth and restore its health. During a root canal, Dr. Holland removes all signs of infection from your tooth, as well as the pulpy, interior dental material. To protect your tooth from developing an infection later, we’ll finish your procedure by placing a crown over the tooth. Your crown both protects the tooth and restores its strength and appearance.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
By the time you reach adolescence, you’ve already developed all of your primary teeth—except for your wisdom teeth. Unfortunately, most jaws can’t accommodate these late-developing molars. That’s why it’s important to have them extracted before they erupt. Allowing your wisdom teeth to develop can result in crowding or impaction, two painful complications that can lead to more serious consequences if they’re not addressed.
Has neglect, injury, or disease compromised your complete smile? We can help. Dr. Holland offers diverse solutions for repairing damaged teeth, eradicating periodontal disease, and replacing missing teeth. To learn more about these treatments, call our San Antonio, TX office. Together, we can create a smile that's beautiful and healthy from the inside out.
