Restorative Dentistry in Central Phoenix AZ
Don’t let self-consciousness about missing or decayed teeth destroy participation in life. Missing teeth can impact your ability to eat healthily, speak clearly, and make a good impression. Damaged or missing teeth can also lead to serious health risks that affect the entire body. The art and science of restorative dentistry focuses on both form and function. Dr. Rick Campbell is skilled in restoring beauty and performance for patients with damaged or missing teeth.
The first and most common restorative dental procedure is a dental filling. Using biocompatible resins, we can repair chipped, cracked, or decayed teeth. Dr. Campbell uses cutting-edge techniques to ensure your dental fillings will last a lifetime with proper care. Whenever possible, we will save damaged teeth with fillings to avoid having to extract them.
A dental crown may be an option when a filling is not enough. Crowns, or caps, fit over the damaged teeth and are secured with dental cement for a snug fit. The crown is indistinguishable from the natural tooth and protects the teeth from further damage.
Non-Surgical Root Canal
When all other efforts to save a tooth have failed, and the center of the tooth is damaged, Dr. Campbell may perform a non-surgical root canal. Removing the tooth’s pulp is the only way to remove all traces of infection and salvage the tooth. Dr. Campbell performs virtually painless root canals that often eliminate the need for tooth extraction.
Although saving your teeth is always our goal, there are times when it is not possible. An irreparably broken tooth, a failed root canal, severe periodontal disease, or impaction may mean we have to remove one or more teeth to preserve your oral health. Learn more about tooth extractions.
Patients with a single missing tooth or a few lost teeth often opt for a dental bridge. The bridge features replacement teeth attached to the natural teeth on either side using a metal fastener or wires. A bridge gives you the look of a complete set of teeth without surgery and restores your ability to chew and smile confidently.
Dental implants are the most exciting advancement in dental restoration in decades. Implants have numerous advantages, including jawbone preservation, permanence, convenience, and comfort. Your dental implant journey begins with a consultation to discuss the right type of implants for you and ends with a gorgeous, lifetime smile.
Whether you are in the early stages of dental caries or have already lost teeth, Dr. Campbell can restore your oral health and relieve your pain. Do not wait until it is too late to save the teeth you have. Early dental restoration is always best, but Sunrise Smile Design is here for you whether you need minor repairs or complete restoration with dental implants.
