Many people will encounter a chipped, cracked, decayed, or missing tooth at some point in their lives. Nobody’s perfect! Fortunately, these issues can be relatively minor if you get the treatment you need quickly, which is exactly what Dr. Donald Marks and our team are happy to offer. Using strong, natural-looking materials, we’ll be able to restore your damaged teeth in a way that makes it look like nothing ever happened to your smile. If you have one or two teeth that need a little attention (or replacing!), be sure to contact us today for restorative dentistry in State College, PA.
If a tooth has become damaged due to injury or decay, a dental crown is likely the best way to repair it. This tooth-shaped “cap” simply fits over a natural tooth to restore its original shape, strength, and appearance all at the same time. And if you are missing single tooth or a few in a row, two crowns can be bonded to the surrounding natural teeth to form a bridge and complete your smile in no time.
Tooth-colored fillings allow us to repair small cavities and slightly damaged teeth without negatively affecting the appearance of a tooth. Rather than metal, these fillings are made of a composite resin. We can color-match the resin to a patient’s teeth to make it practically invisible, and the material even forms a much stronger bond with the enamel compared to traditional fillings. This means more repair can be accomplished with a smaller filling, enabling Dr. Marks to preserve more of your enamel. In the end, you get a tooth that looks great and is built to last.
Multiple missing teeth is a problem faced by over 100 million Americans right now, and if that includes you, we can provide a relatively quick, affordable, and natural-looking solution with custom-made dentures. Partial dentures can replace missing teeth while comfortable fitting with a patient’s remaining teeth, while a full denture can instantly restore an entire row. In any case, we’ll make sure you leave our dental office with a denture that helps you eat, speak, and smile with complete confidence.
