Revive Your Smile Before the Holiday Season [blog]
Fall is almost here and the leaves on the trees will soon turn beautiful shades of red, gold, and orange. You know what that means, don’t you? The busy holiday season can’t be far off. Oh, you have a little time – but not as much as you think. Before you know it, you’ll be hustling around trying to find the perfect present for everyone on your shopping list.
With the kids back in school, now is a great time to get your smile into shape! If you’ve been putting off your dental repairs, Houston Uptown Dentists offers you many ways to revive your smile and get it ready before the holiday season is in full bloom.
No matter what shape your smile is in, Dr. Juarez and her team have a variety of restorative dental treatments that can repair it. Below we outline a few of our most popular treatments. Your dentist will be happy to cover your individual options in detail – just give us a call today at 832-463-1021 to schedule a consultation.
Get Your Bite Back With Dental Crowns & Bridges
Crowns and bridges are the workhorses of restorative dentistry. These versatile restorations provide many options for repairing your smile. Your treatment will begin with leading-edge tools like the iTero intraoral scanner and digital X-rays. Then our lab partner will custom-craft your restoration.
A single crown can cap and repair a damaged or diseased tooth, while a new bridge will replace one or more missing teeth, giving you back a beautiful smile and strong bite. You’ll be able to eat all those great holiday foods and treats with no problem! Plus your restoration will look perfectly natural, blending in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth.
Our Tooth-Colored Fillings Look Great
If you have a cavity, then a natural-looking composite resin tooth filling is a great way to repair it. Not only will this type of filling stop tooth decay, it will look great and won’t stand out like metal fillings can when you talk, laugh, or eat.
Your dentist will select the appropriate shade of composite that looks completely natural, then sculpt it into the proper shape to repair your dental damage. A special UV light will then instantly harden and cure the material. You’ll leave our office with a beautiful new restoration and ready to eat your favorite holiday foods!
A Root Canal Will Help You Feel Better
Maybe you have a toothache that’s been bothering you for a while. Your tooth could be diseased and require root canal therapy. Contrary to what many people believe, a root canal doesn’t cause you more pain – it will actually stop the pain of a diseased tooth and allow you to eat comfortably again.
Your dentist will remove the diseased inner portion of the tooth with special endodontic lasers or PIPS (Photon Induced Photo-acoustic Streaming), sanitize the tooth, then fill it with a rubber-like material.
Your pain will be gone and we’ll have saved the tooth from extraction with this beneficial service. For best results, you’ll want to cap the tooth with a new crown to strengthen it, help prevent further problems, and restore virtually all your chewing capacity.
Dentures Will Give You a Full Set of Teeth Again
Forget what you know about dentures. Thanks to recent advances in both materials and the manufacturing process, today’s dentures far outperform those “false teeth” your grandfather had to put up with.
We offer a variety of dentures options here at Houston Uptown Dentists. Full and partial conventional dentures will rest on your gums and can be removed easily for daily cleaning. You’ll have back a great-looking smile and be able to eat anything you want.
With the innovative same-day smile service, we can even secure a new set of dentures to dental implants that we place that same day. Walk in without teeth and leave the office with a beautiful set of pearly whites!
Consider Longer-Term Treatment Using Dental Implants
Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth. These artificial tooth roots will fuse with your jawbone, then we can secure beautiful and functional new teeth to them.
Although, in most cases your dental implant treatment won’t be complete before the holidays, if you’re tired of dealing with the daily hassle of missing teeth, and you’d like a way to help keep your jawbone healthy and intact, implants may be a good option for you.
Once the implants are fully integrated with the bone, your replacement teeth will make biting and chewing a breeze, plus they’ll help stimulate the bone and lessen the chances that your jawbone will deteriorate.
