Restorative Dentistry in Colorado Springs
At Springs Dental Care we work to keep your natural teeth healthy with our wide range of preventive care services, but we know that despite best efforts, you may still have damage caused by tooth decay, gum disease, or trauma at some point. That’s why our expert dentists Dr.s Ivy H. Webb and Richard A. Cea have devoted so much time to learning the ins and outs of restorative dentistry. Our goal is always to find the restoration therapies that fit your schedule and budget. Trust the skilled doctors at Springs Dental Care of Colorado Springs, CO to put a smile back on your face no matter what the damage.
Tooth Restoration Options
Dr. Webb completed her general practice residency with the VA Medical Center in Memphis, TN. During this time, she was able to gain experience and training in dental implants, periodontics, prosthetics and oral surgery. This education makes Dr. Webb an idea candidate for all of your restoration dentistry needs. Additionally, Dr. Cea has training in cosmetic dentistry, sedation dentistry and orthodontics. Their combined knowledge allows them to restore any level of oral health damage, and provide their patients with outstanding care. Our excellent restorative dentistry services include:
Fillings – Used to restore damage done by minor tooth decay.
Inlays and Onlays – Similar to fillings because they are used to restore minor damage, inlays and onlays are shaped outside the mouth and bonded to the tooth rather than being inserted into the cavity before it hardens. Inlays and onlays are very similar, but the only covers more of the tooth.
Crown and Bridge – A crown is a type of onlay that covers all sides of a tooth. Frequently used to support a bridge that connects two natural teeth with a prosthetic tooth when there is no tooth or tooth to anchor the replacement tooth.
CEREC – Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics allow our dentists to place a crown in one visit. We’ll use the CEREC to custom mill a crown while you wait. This crown will be the size, shape, and shade you need to replace your damaged tooth, and in most cases we can place the crown the same day.
Periodontal Therapy – With a growing number of Americans suffering from some level of periodontal (gum) disease and the strong link between gum disease and other illnesses, it is essential to treat and prevent all levels of gum disease. Our highly qualified dental staff offer minimally invasive, non-surgical periodontal therapies to help our patients heal quickly, and avoid further contamination of gum tissue.
Dental Implants – This technology has developed over more than a decade, and it’s safer and easier than ever before to receive dental implants that will look and feel just like your natural teeth. If that weren’t enough to convince you to consider dental implants, because the implant posts replace not just your tooth but the root, you will retain gum tissue and jawbone density as well.
Sedation Dentistry for Complex Restorations
At Springs Dental Care if we can’t preserve your natural smile, we will work with you to restore it. Each patient is different, and our doctors want to develop a treatment plan that fits your needs. As some restoration treatments can be lengthy or uncomfortable, we offer sedation dentistry. Sedation is beneficial during any procedure for patients who struggle with dental anxiety, but even if you don’t suffer from dental anxiety, sedation is extremely helpful when undergoing complex restoration procedures. You are more relaxed, and will experience less pain.
