Your Restorative Options at Frisco's Dentists
Depending on the extent of the damage to your teeth — teeth whitening may be your best bet. If you’ve experienced stains to your teeth, speak to Dr. Neal at your next appointment to start the teeth whitening process!
If you have enough damage to your teeth that the canal is infected, a root canal is the only option. Root canals are often a result of a cavity that has caused infection and decay. Most root canals only take one to two visits to complete but could require additional visits if the damage is severe.
If you have cavities, your dentist can use a filling to repair the tooth. Dr. Neal uses composite fillings as they are stronger, safer, and look more natural than older silver-like fillings. If you have older fillings, now is the perfect time to visit the dentist to inquire about new fillings.
If you have further damage to your teeth after a cavity, crowns will be used instead of fillings. Dr. Neal will fit dental crowns to your smile specifically, making for a natural-looking smile.
Dental Implants, Dentures & Veneers
If a filling, root canal, or crown cannot fix the damage to your teeth — more extensive options may be necessary. If you’re missing one tooth due to damage, an implant is a great option. However, for more than one missing tooth in one area, your dentist may recommend dentures or veneers.
The main difference? Dentures are removable, while veneers are not. Dental veneers are very thin shells that dentists place over prepared teeth to both improve their look and even improve the way their patients eat and speak.
