Restorative Dentistry Saves Smiles
When it comes to fixing and replacing teeth, there is no one-size-fits-all answer. Whether a tooth is infected with decay, damaged by accidental trauma, or missing because of a dental disease or tooth extraction, the right restorative option can save your smile. Yet, to be effective, your custom restoration must specifically match your tooth and smile, and help reestablish your ability to bite, chew, speak, and smile confidently.
With any restoration, Dr. Nielsen aims to preserve as much of your strong, healthy tooth structure as possible. For instance, he uses tooth fillings crafted from biocompatible composite resin (rather than metal), and dental crowns and other prosthetics are frequently crafted from realistic dental porcelain that minimizes wear on your opposing teeth.
