Eliminating Pain, Restoring Function
This patient presented with a lifetime of use on his teeth. He was unhappy with his appearance and had pain while chewing. He wanted to have a nice smile, that functioned well without pain. After developing a customized treatment plan, we utilized dental implants, periodontal therapy, composite bonding, and ceramic crowns to get this patient smiling and functioning at his finest.
At our Festus and Columbia offices, we offer both composite and amalgam fillings. Composite fillings match the color of your enamel and they are very durable. Metal amalgam fillings are usually covered by dental insurance, which makes them very affordable. However, they have a grayish-silver appearance that may permanently discolor your teeth. During your consultation, one of our dentists will go over your options and needs to help you determine which treatment is best for you.
Restore and Repair a Damaged Tooth
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is used to restore your tooth if the interior “pulp” has become infected due to a serious cavity or an oral injury that damages your tooth. One of our dentists will remove the decayed and infected material, then disinfect it. The pulp will be replaced with an inert material to provide structure. Once this procedure is complete, your tooth will be restored with a custom dental crown. We offer root canals for both anterior (front) and posterior (rear) teeth.
Strengthen Your Smile
Dental crowns are the best way to cover up and protect a seriously-decayed tooth or a tooth that has been cracked or broken due to oral trauma. Dental crowns are also often used to cover teeth after they have been treated with root canal therapy. Our lab-made crowns are crafted out of high-quality porcelain, and they fit over your remaining enamel to restore both the function and aesthetics of your smile. When your treatment is complete, your dental crown will look and feel just like a natural tooth.
Know Your Options
Full, Partial & Implant-Supported Dentures
We offer both full and partial dentures at Williamson Dental in Festus and Columbia. Partial dentures are a great way to restore your smile if you’ve lost one or more teeth. They attach to your remaining healthy teeth with a metal and plastic framework, replacing each missing tooth with a false tooth.
Full dentures are typically only a good option if you’ve already lost most or all of your natural teeth, as they require the extraction of any remaining healthy teeth. Our full dentures fit tightly over your gums, allowing you to restore your smile with ease.
Conus implant-supported dentures combine the best aspects of removable implant-supported dentures and fixed, implant-supported bridges. If you’re interested in a permanent alternative to traditional dentures, Conus implant-supported dentures are an ideal way to restore your smile.
