Small cavities don’t have to detract from your smile’s appearance and impair your ability to bite and chew. We can remove the decay and replace that tooth structure with a simply filling. Unlike fillings of the past composed of metal, tooth-colored fillings look completely natural next to tooth enamel. The composite resin can be shaded to match the tooth, which means that no one will be able to tell that you had a cavity in the first place.Learn More About Tooth-Colored Fillings
Whether a tooth is too badly damaged to be repaired with a filling or the tooth is missing entirely, dental crowns and bridges can bring back teeth’s strength and function. These restorations are designed and crafted to look just like the real thing, and we always make sure they’re a perfect fit in your mouth. In fact, you may forget which teeth are natural and which are restored.Learn More About Dental Crowns
If you’re missing one, two, or three consecutive teeth, a dental bridge is one of the simplest and most effective ways to restore your complete smile. A bridge consists of several dental crowns that have been bonded together to create one unit. The dental crowns on the end are placed over the remaining teeth on either side of the empty space and support the replacement teeth between them to literally bridge the gap. At Indianapolis Family Dentistry, we craft custom-made bridges from strong, natural-looking materials to ensure the results blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.Learn More About Dental Bridges
A simple tooth loss treatment, dental bridges are ideal for replacing one or even several missing teeth in a row. A dental bridge consists of a specific number of crowns (usually three or four) strung together. The crowns on either end fit over existing natural teeth, with the crowns in the middle seamlessly filling the empty space. In order to give the bridge a healthy foundation, the remaining teeth that will support it must have some enamel removed.Learn More About Dental Bridges
Root Canal Therapy
Teeth may be small, but they can pack a powerful punch when they become infected. You don’t have to suffer with tooth pain; as a matter of fact, you shouldn’t wait at all if you have tooth pain! If you do, you risk losing the tooth entirely. Instead, turn to our experts here at Indianapolis Family Dentistry for root canal therapy. We’ll relieve your discomfort, remove the affected tooth tissue, and restore the tooth to its former glory.Learn More About Root Canal Therapy
Removing a tooth is never something we take lightly. We do our best to consider all your options to save a tooth as often as possible. However, when it’s necessary, an extraction can protect your other natural teeth or relieve significant pain. If we need to perform this procedure, our team will make sure you feel perfectly comfortable and at ease during the entire process. In some cases, we’ll also discuss potential tooth replacements, like dentures, bridges, or dental implants.Learn More About Extractions
Dentures and Partials
Dentures have been around for many, many years, but we don’t provide the same old kinds of dentures your grandparents had. Thanks to modern technology and materials, dentures are more comfortable and effective than ever before, whether you’re replacing a few teeth or an entire arch. We personalize your full or partial denture to fit perfectly inside your mouth, enabling you to eat and smile with confidence again.Learn More About Dentures and Partials
