Restorative Dentistry Athens AL


Woman looking at her smile in a mirror after a restorative procedure at Singing River Dentistry in Athens, ALAt Singing River Dentistry, our goal is to prevent dental problems before they occur. Unfortunately, this is not always possible due to poor oral hygiene, genetics, infrequent checkups, and other risk factors. This is why we also specialize in restorative dentistry.

Our restorative dental treatments services are designed to improve the function and aesthetics of your smile, as well as your overall oral health. Following are some of the restorative dentistry procedures we offer at our Athens, AL practice.

Dental Filling


Dental fillings are the best way to restore minor to moderate instances of tooth decay. Most dental fillings these days consist of a material known as composite resin. Composite resin is an aesthetically-pleasing material that we color-match to the existing shade of your enamel. For this reason, a composite filling is virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your tooth. Fillings are very common dental restorations.

Dental Crown


A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that improves the structure and cosmetics of a broken or decayed tooth, preventing further damage. During the procedure, your tooth must be completely reshaped to accommodate the shape of the crown.

Once the tooth is reshaped, in order to restore broken teeth, we will permanently bond the crown to the enamel using a special adhesive. Many dental crowns are fabricated these days with porcelain, due to its unmatched aesthetics.

Dental Bridge


Dental bridges replace lost teeth, restoring your smile. We bond the bridges to the bordering teeth and then place what is called the "pontic" tooth. Although dental bridges are still in use, there has been an increase in dental implants serving as a replacement. Both are equally effective.

If a dental gap goes unaddressed, the adjacent teeth tend to move closer to each other, filling the gap that the lost tooth left. The results may not be so appealing, as there might be unsightly gaps that might affect your smile and overall facial appearance. Dental bridges work by preventing this natural occurrence, by ensuring that all teeth remain in the position they are supposed to be.

Dental Implant


A dental implant is a small titanium post that we surgically embedded into the jawbone. The implant serves as the root component of a prosthetic tooth. Once the implant is in place, it will fuse to the bone during the process of osseointegration.

Osseointegration allows the implant to support a restoration against the strongest forces of your bite. For this reason, dental implants are widely considered to be the next best thing to your natural teeth.

Dental Veneers


Dental veneers represent a versatile solution within restorative dentistry, offering both functional and aesthetic advantages to our Athens area patients seeking to improve their smile. Primarily recognized for their cosmetic enhancements, veneers are thin shells crafted from porcelain or composite resin, custom-designed to fit over teeth' front surfaces. They effectively mask dental issues like chips, cracks, discoloration, and minor misalignments, instantly rejuvenating smiles with a natural-looking finish.

Beyond their cosmetic appeal, veneers are considered restorative dental procedures because they reinforce weakened or damaged teeth, providing an additional layer of protection against further deterioration. By preserving tooth structure integrity, veneers contribute to enhanced dental health and durability, making them an ideal option for patients seeking comprehensive dental care.

Dentures


A denture is a removable appliance that is usually used to replace one or more missing teeth. A partial denture usually attaches to the surrounding teeth with metal clasps. A complete denture consists of a flesh-colored acrylic base that supports a complete arch of prosthetic teeth. We offer custom-fit dentures as a more comfortable, functional, and durable solution.

Inlays & Onlays


Inlays and onlays are ideal for areas of decay too large for a filling, but not large enough to require the placement of a dental crown. The restoration is considered an inlay if it is placed within the occlusal (bite) surface of a tooth. The restoration is considered an onlay if it extends beyond one or more of the occlusal cusps.

Tooth Extraction


There are two types of extractions - simple and surgical. We perform a simple extraction on a tooth that has already erupted above the gumline. We perform a surgical extraction on a tooth that has become impacted, or has yet to erupt, such as wisdom teeth. Extraction may be necessary to prevent the spread of infection and other complications.

Wisdom teeth typically erupt much later than other permanent teeth, which can cause problems for your oral health. At Singing River Dentistry, we provide wisdom teeth extractions to prevent or alleviate these potential problems. The extraction of impacted wisdom teeth typically takes place during a single appointment.

Root Canal


A root canal is a final effort to save a tooth from extraction. We may recommend root canal therapy if an infection has spread to the "pulpy" center of the tooth that contains nerve endings and other connective tissues. Once the infection has been removed, we fill the canals with a rubber-like material known as gutta-percha. A tooth that has received root canal treatment typically needs to be capped with a crown.
