Louisville Restorative Dentistry
If your smile needs some extra care to make it healthy again, Dr. Tran and her team will help guide you to the best dental treatments to suite your needs and your budget. Our goal here is to make you feel comfortable and keep your body healthy, even after you leave the dental chair.
Composite fillings provide subtle restoration to teeth after decay is removed. So your teeth won’t only feel healthier, they will also look healthier! Many patients feel concerned about fillings because of tooth sensitivity that they’ve had from past amalgam fillings. Composite fillings are not only more durable, but they also cause less sensitivity.
Crowns & Bridges
If you have a tooth that is cracked or chipped, our Louisville dental team can place a dental crown on top of the tooth to protect it against further damage or infection. Crowns also add much-needed strength to weakened teeth.
If you’re missing a tooth or a couple of teeth, Dr. Tran may recommend a dental bridge to restore function to your teeth. Crowns are placed on either side of the gap, and the bridge – with a false tooth or teeth – connects to the crowns to “bridge” the gap created by the missing teeth.
Crowns and bridges can help restore function to teeth, and the look and feel similar to your natural teeth, ensuring your smile looks and feels great. They are also used in conjunction with dental implants to give you back a full, beautiful smile.
Even if you’re missing most or all of your natural teeth, we can help you get back to smiling, talking, and eating with relative ease once more with dentures. The process of designing, manufacturing, and fitting your new dentures will take a few appointments, but once your dentures are ready for wear, you’ll understand why. Thanks to advancements in dental technologies and materials, dentures of today are more comfortable and functional than ever before.
Root Canal Therapy
Patients who are experiencing severe tooth pain may have an infection. Dr. Tran may recommend a root canal to clean out the infection and protect the tooth from future damage. Although the term “root canal” often makes patients immediately think of pain, the infected tooth often causes pain and discomfort that is far worse than any discomfort one may feel during the root canal procedure.
During a root canal, our team cleans out the infected tooth pulp and seals the inside of the tooth, effectively sealing out any future infection. Once the tooth has been sealed, we place a crown on top of the tooth to strengthen the weakened tooth and provide additional protection against future damage or decay.
