As a respected leader in the dentistry community, Dr. Don Sing has helped hundreds of patients correct dental health issues and in some cases correcting issues caused by unsatisfactory or insufficient dental work from other practices.
Used to repair teeth that are too severely damaged for a dental filling to repair, crowns are a suitable option to maintain the color, shape, and stability of your teeth. Crowns are very durable and can last for many years, but will eventually require replacing.
Dental fillings aren’t much fun and neither do they inspire feelings of comfort or happiness, but this crucial procedure remains an integral part of a patient’s oral health.
New dental fillings utilize ceramic or plastic compounds that perfectly match the appearance of natural teeth. These new fillings preserve a patient’s smile and in some cases, can even enhance it.
A dental bridge replaces a tooth or several teeth to fill the space where some teeth are missing. This ensures your natural bite and smile remain consistent. Because teeth are made to work together, having a missing tooth can result in increased stress on your teeth and jaw, causing pain.
Teeth are meant to work together, so when a tooth is missing, cracked, damaged, or otherwise sensitive, it puts pressure on the rest of the mouth. To correct these issues, a dental crown and/or dental bridges may be required.
Dental crowns restore a decayed or damaged tooth’s function and are made from porcelain or composite materials. At Don Sing Dental, we provide same-day crowns for fast, accurate treatments to help you get on your way and on the path to recovery.
A dental bridge acts to replace a missing tooth or multiple teeth. Some bridges require crowns to be placed on either side of a missing tooth in order to anchor replacement teeth within the mouth’s natural structure.
Tooth extractions are often the worst case scenario for many patients, as the procedure is only necessary if a tooth becomes too decayed or otherwise destroyed for a dental restoration to be viable.
However, impacted teeth or wisdom teeth are often extracted to prevent alignment issues, sinus pain, and future dental health problems. These procedures are routine and straightforward, but may require anesthesia. Tooth extraction may also be necessary as part of orthodontic procedures, including getting braces.
Inlays and Onlays
Dental inlays and onlays are restorative techniques used to repair rear teeth that do not necessarily require a crown.
These procedures are recommended for patients who have experienced too much damage, decay, or compromise of the tooth’s structure to be treated with a filling but don’t yet need a crown.
Thankfully, inlays and onlays can preserve and strengthen damaged teeth by up to 75 percent, making them an ideal procedure for patients experiencing pain or discomfort due to damaged teeth.
Tooth bonding is a treatment that attaches filling material to a tooth’s natural enamel, ensuring a secure and appealing bond.
Bonding also serves as an alternative to porcelain veneers or crowns and in the hands of an experienced dental professional, can result in longer-lasting performance with the proper care and maintenance.
