Some people may wait until the pain of a constant toothache or bleeding gums warns them about a severe dental problem and forces them to call their dentist. Routine visits to Softouch Dental Care provide the chance for experienced dentist Dr. Chung and his team to catch these dental problems before they turn severe.
If the issue has progressed without attention, you may require more serious dental procedures. It is important to fix the functionality of your bite before addressing any cosmetic dental issues.
Correcting Advanced Dental Problems
Severe damage to your oral health may accumulate from ignoring the problem. Once we have seen what kind of severe dental problem you have, we can then look at solutions.
Varying degrees of tooth decay may benefit from the use of porcelain dental crowns. The crown reshapes your tooth and provides protection underneath the new porcelain surface. We may also recommend this option after removing an old filling.
If your tooth cannot be saved, you should replace the gap left by missing teeth. Gaps create an uneven bite that can easily lead to future problems. One solution to this is dental implants. An implant replaces the missing root of the tooth and is capped by a porcelain crown.
Enhanced Treatment with Full Mouth Rejuvenation
Cosmetic dentistry work may require the additional focus on your temporomandibular joint, or jaw joint, and teeth placement. A severely misaligned jaw will eventually damage the overall cosmetic appearance and function of your mouth. A healthy mouth is balanced function between your teeth, jaw joint and muscles.
Dr. Chung is a highly skilled neuromuscular dentist with advanced training in those procedures required for full mouth rejuvenation. He is able to evaluate your cosmetic needs and match them with your overall health.
Dentistry done right the first time is always appreciated, and cosmetic dentistry is not intended to cover up latent issues. A beautiful smile will not remain in an unhealthy mouth. The pain and discomfort caused by severe dental problems are treatable with our talented cosmetic dentist.
