Services used for dental reconstruction in Greenwood
When patients are seeking optimum oral health restoration and preservation services, they are encouraged to take the time to speak with Dr. Christopher T. Griffin, DMD of Greenwood. His practice focuses on helping patients achieve better dental health and wellness, as well as improve the aesthetics of their smile. This is why his practice enjoys providing men and women with dental reconstruction.
Dental reconstruction, also known as a smile makeover or dental rejuvenation, is a treatment plan that is developed specifically for each patient who wants to improve the aesthetics of his or her smile. Our team starts this process by consulting with patients regarding their imperfections and how they would like to address these problems, then work closely with them to rebuild an attractive smile. Dental reconstruction may incorporate several treatments to create the ultimate smile, and these may include some of the below services:
Sometimes patients may be dealing with overcrowding of their teeth, or teeth that are able to be lost due to disease or decay. Extractions can be done in our practice to help make room for the existing teeth or to start reconstruction.
Dentures may be used to replace missing teeth. Our practice offers both full and partial dentures for patients interested in removable restorations such as these.
There are times when fillings are not large enough for areas of decay but a dental crown may be overkill. This is when Dr. Christopher T. Griffin, DMD may use inlays and onlays as an alternative for repairing teeth.
Used for protection and replacing missing teeth, crowns and bridges play an important role in both general and restorative dentistry.
Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells fabricated to bond over the front facing of a tooth and cover up imperfections. These are commonly used in smile makeovers as they are incredibly versatile.
Replacing a single missing tooth can be done with the use of dental implants. These can also be placed to hold full dentures in place or provide support for a dental bridge.
