Let us repair and restore decay or damage
Accidents happen everyday, but what’s important is that you seek dental attention if your teeth are harmed -- or if you simply suspect they have been damaged. If you injure your tooth or develop a cavity, it’s important to seek out dental restoration care as soon as possible.
Delaying treatment could cause more serious problems to your teeth. By contacting Great Lakes Family Dental Group - Blissfield and scheduling a visit with your dental restoration team right away, we can examine the damage or decay before it progresses. Then we can work out a treatment plan that suits your needs.
Here are the types of dental restoration work we provide at Great Lakes Family Dental Group:
Fillings: If you have a cavity -- a tiny hole in the enamel of your tooth -- the most common form of dental restoration is a simple filling. We remove the decayed section of your tooth, and replace it with metal, acrylic or porcelain.
Crowns: If your tooth is severely decayed, or already contains several fillings, a crown may be the best option for you. Made from gold, porcelain fused to metal, or pure white porcelain, a crown covers your existing tooth to protect it and keep it looking great.
Inlays: An inlay can repair any damage to the biting surface of your teeth. Made from porcelain, an inlay is similar to a filling, and is placed inside a cavity and cemented in place.
Onlays: Similar to an inlay, the onlay requires a more substantial reconstruction of your tooth, and it covers one or more cusps. Your dentist may suggest an onlay, rather than a crown, because more of the tooth structure can be restored.
Dental bridges: If you have a badly-infected tooth that needs to be removed, we can replace it with an artificial tooth that connects to the two surrounding teeth. This gives you the appearance of having a real tooth.
