Many techniques and treatments restore a tooth’s health. Whether it be a filling, a porcelain crown, or a dental implant restoration, modern dentistry is equipped to address almost any ailment in your smile.

Tooth-Colored Fillings for Undistinguishable Cavity Treatment
Bacteria consume sugar left on tooth surfaces then they emit an acid that causes tooth decay. The traditional treatments of amalgam fillings have been replaced with tooth-colored fillings because they are more natural looking and contain no toxic ingredients like mercury. Made of composite resin, these fillings are seamlessly and securely bonded to teeth and matched to the color of surrounding teeth. They also require less removal of a tooth’s original structure, which makes them a conservative treatment option of both patients and dentists.
Protect Natural Teeth with Lustrous Crowns
Following root canal therapy or decay removal, prosthetic crowns are placed over a tooth to protect it and allow you to bite with full force. Porcelain crowns are designed to the precise dimensions and color of your natural teeth, and they can last a lifetime when cared for properly.
Weaverville Family Dentistry can create your crowns immediately, using CEREC technology. Without the need for temporary crowns and additional dental visits, you save time and money. The crowns are lifelike restorations matched to surrounding teeth that can last a lifetime.
Options for Treatment after Tooth Loss
- Dental implant Restorations: Drs. Merrell and Merrell use the latest technology to place implants accurately. The crowns attached to the posts return full function and beauty to your smile. Dental implant restorations are superior to all other tooth replacement options as they address not just tooth loss but bone loss as well.
- Fixed Bridges first encase adjacent teeth with stabilizing crowns. Then a prosthetic pontic tooth is glued to the supporting teeth to replace the missing teeth. The entire bridge is uniform in appearance and matched to surrounding teeth. It restores form and function to your smile.
- Dentures and partial dentures are removable acrylic appliances that rest on top of gums. Adhesive paste secures dentures to the gums, and metal hooks attach partial dentures onto neighboring teeth. Dentures have pearly white prosthetic crowns, and they restore many of the functions of natural teeth.
