If you’re embarrassed about your smile because of decayed or disfigured teeth, you may be interested in restorative dentistry from Dr. Tad Morgan near Tyler, Texas. From fixing a single cavity to providing full-mouth reconstruction, Dr. Morgan offers you the ability to turn back the clock on your smile.
For those suffering with cavities, we offer composite resin tooth-colored fillings. A composite resin is a mixture of microscopic ceramic and glass particles dispersed in a plastic resin that can be bonded to teeth. The material comes in a wide range of shades and can be molded and sculpted to create almost any shape or contour. This material is used in cosmetic dental bonding, but it also provides an alternative to dark silver amalgam fillings. Composite resin contains no mercury, which should ease the minds of those concerned about the mercury that can be found in amalgam filling material.
If you’re self-conscious about cracked, broken, decayed, or worn teeth, we can bring back your healthy, natural-looking smile with porcelain dental crowns. A crown can return structure, strength, and function to a tooth that’s been affected by extensive decay or damage. Porcelain crowns are designed to function as a healthy tooth, and they can prevent further damage while preserving the jaw’s correct natural alignment.
When you have a larger cavity, a filling might not provide enough strength or protection. That's when we might use an inlay or an onlay to stop your cavity and protect your tooth from more damage. Inlays and onlays are both fabricated from various materials, including porcelain, and then placed into the damaged area on your tooth enamel. Inlays and onlays provide greater restorative dentistry options for rebuilding your smile.
If you’ve lost teeth, we offer several restorative dentistry solutions for your smile. Replacing missing teeth doesn’t just fill in the unsightly and embarrassing gap left behind, but it will also prevent repositioning of remaining teeth, correct a misaligned bite, improve chewing function and speech articulation, and provide internal structure for the face to give you a more youthful appearance.
