Crowns

Crowns are used to rebuild broken or decayed teeth, to strengthen teeth, and as a means by which to enhance the cosmetic appearance of teeth. A crown fully covers that portion of a tooth which lies at and above the gum line, and it is a type of dental restoration. In comparison, composite fillings/inlays/onlays are dental restorations that are used to fill in or cover over only a portion of a tooth. Since dental crowns encase the entire visible area of a tooth, a dental crown becomes the tooth’s new outer surface. Crowns can be made out of gold alloy, porcelain/ceramic, or a combination of both. Dental crowns are often referred to as “dental caps.”

Bridges

Bridges literally “bridge” gaps between teeth by filling them with strong, natural looking artificial teeth. Bridges can only be removed by a dentist, are semi-permanent, are comfortable, and they are proven to strengthen teeth. Losing or extracting a tooth can be devastating to your oral health over time, but it doesn’t have to be. By replacing missing teeth, you can avoid many of the consequences of tooth loss, including increased risks to the healthy teeth that remain. Using advanced materials, like life-like dental porcelain, Dr. William S Motruk can craft a dental bridge to rebuild your smile with highly-realistic results.

Dentures

At Dr. William S Motruk Dentistry, we can help restore your simile by creating quality dentures that have a beautiful, natural look. Dentures can be crafted as partial or complete, depending on the extent of your tooth loss. Partial dentures are designed to fit around and between the healthy teeth that remain, while complete dentures replace an entire row of missing teeth. Each has a comfortable, gum-colored plastic base, though partials may also have small hidden clasps for additional support. The three types of dentures are:

  • Complete Dentures
    • Complete dentures replace an entire row of missing teeth.
    • For individuals that are unhappy with the look of all their teeth, this might be a good option, as you are able to choose the color, shape and size of the teeth. 
  • Partial Dentures
    • Partial dentures replace multiple missing teeth.
    • They are held in place using retention from other teeth. By drawing on the number of materials available to us, we can create a set of quality dentures that look and feel natural.
  • Implant-Retained Dentures
    • If you are struggling with loose dentures, implant-retained dentures may be the best option for you. This is a set of complete dentures that are held in place with implants.
    • This helps hold the dentures in position, and prevents them from shifting in any way possible.
    • For many people, implant-retained dentures can significantly improve quality of life, as they are able to eat anything without having to worry about shifting dentures.
