Do you suffer from chipped, cracked, decayed, or damaged teeth? Did you know that restorative care for your teeth is not only beneficial to your full and beautiful smile, but also to the functionality that you’ll have down the road.
When damaged or missing teeth are left untreated, the consequences happen like a snowball effect. A damaged tooth is more prone to tooth decay, and further breakage. The surrounding teeth can begin to shift or rotate, and your bite can become compromised. A compromised bite can lead to TMJ problems. When a missing tooth is left missing, the underlying jawbone will actually begin to deteriorate, which causes that ‘sunken face’ appearance.
Aside from the oral health consequences, a damaged or missing tooth can damage your quality of life and self-esteem. It can be difficult and painful to enjoy your favorite foods, and to speak and smile naturally and with confidence.
Whether there was an accident or the passing of time has caused this damage, Carolina Complete dentists, Dr. Barganier and Dr. Bale can help restore your smile’s brilliant luster with restorative services at our Goose Creek dental office.
Dental Crowns are restorations for teeth that are cracked, broken or are overly decayed and need more complete repair than a filling can offer. Crowns cover the entire tooth, so after all damage or decay has been removed, no further damage or decay can occur, ultimately strengthening the tooth. At Carolina Complete Dental, Dr. Barganier and Dr. Bale use CEREC® technology to create dental crowns right in their office—in one appointment!
The whole procedure is done in a day and takes between 1-3 hours relatively. The material that the crown is made with usually consists of porcelain or a material resin that matches the shade of your tooth, and is designed with your needs in mind.
If you are worried about a damaged tooth or may be in need of a same day crown, call our Goose Creek, SC dental office at – (843) 779-9445 – to schedule a consultation with Carolina Complete dentists Dr. Barganier or Dr. Bale today.
Dental Bridges are devices meant to bridge the gap between teeth after one or more has been lost. At Carolina Complete Dental, we will create crowns for the tooth on each side of the missing tooth gap, and a third to go in the gap. Since our dentists use only metal-free materials, your bridge will look just like your natural teeth, and no one will even know it’s there!
When teeth are missing, it throws your entire mouth out of whack. Surrounding teeth begin to shift and rotate, and your bite will become compromised which could cause problems for your jaw joint. Replacing teeth with a dental bridge will bring your oral health back into balance.
The benefits to restoring your smile are not only aesthetic, but functional too:
At Carolina Complete Dental, Dr. Barganier and Dr. Bale and our skilled dental team are proud to offer patients the All-On-4® Teeth in a Day tooth replacement system. The system is called Teeth in a Day because it can take as little as 24 hours, and only one or two visits to our Goose Creek dental office.
There are many benefits in restoring your smile with All-on-4®, including:
All-on-4® is exactly that, all teeth on either your upper or lower jaw secured to four dental implant posts. These four implants allow for superior stability. A custom bridge or denture is then attached to the implants and secured.
The limited number of implants placed allows for faster recovery time, and less pain.
If you need teeth replaced, but are not sure the best way to go about it, call our Goose Creek dentist office at – (843) 779-9445 – and schedule a consultation with Dr. Barganier or Dr. Bale. Teeth in a Day from All-on-4® may be just the answer for you.
Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth. Carolina Complete dentists Dr. Barganier and Dr. Bale can create either a full or partial denture depending on their patients’ individual needs. We also offer implant supported dentures for added stability, function, and jawbone health. Schedule a consultation with your Goose Creek dentist to find out which option is best for you!
Taking into account several factors – oral health, bone quantity and quality, facial shape, goals and budget – they can create a natural-looking smile using the latest cosmetic techniques.
Dentures and partials are traditionally removable dental prosthetics that can replace missing teeth and give you back your oral health, your beautiful smile, your ability to eat and speak, and your confidence.
If you are a candidate for dental implants, dentures can be stabilized with the help of dental implants, adding both strength and comfort. Implant dentures are permanent and do not need to be removed for cleaning. They look, fit, feel and function just like natural teeth!
If you’re missing most or all of your natural teeth, we highly recommend implant supported dentures which help prevent the jawbone from deteriorating. Visit our Teeth in a Day page to learn how we can place implants and give you a new set of teeth in just one visit!
The restoration of your smile is essential to maintain the health of your surrounding teeth, improve chewing and digestion, and restore confidence.
