There is no need to suffer with a damaged tooth. If your tooth is broken, chipped, or fractured, see R. Scott Smith, D.D.S. as soon as possible. Otherwise, your tooth could be damaged further or become infected, possibly causing you to end up losing the tooth. Our skilled doctors can repair your tooth using a variety of methods that will cater to your needs. We also offer dental sedation to those patients that may be a little anxious or nervous about their dental visit.
If you have any questions about how you can have a healthy, attractive smile like many of our other patients, please contact us today.
Metal fillings are virtually a thing of the past and at R. Scott Smith, D.D.S. we have the technology to replace any unattractive metal fillings with natural looking tooth-colored fillings making them almost invisible to the naked eye. These composite fillings are structurally bonded to your teeth making them much less likely to fall out which was a regular problem with silver/amalgam fillings.
A crown is sometimes termed a "cap" or "jacket." A crown will restore a large filling or a cracked tooth to its original size, shape and tooth color. A crown may be recommended after root canal therapy has been completed, as the tooth tends to become brittle and is more likely to fracture. A crown can strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and improves the appearance of your teeth.
We perform routine procedures of oral surgery (extractions) and also provide bone grafting and socket for dental implants.
The problems involving your wisdom teeth may be caused by the size of your jaw and/or by how crowded your teeth are. Common warning symptoms that there is an un-natural problem in the development of your wisdom teeth could be pain and swelling.
If you've been diagnosed with gum disease or have having gum line problems, you'll need one of our periodontal procedures.
