When a tooth is damaged by injury, decay, or disease, restorative dentistry can return optimal form and function. If left untreated, a damaged tooth can result in discomfort and eventually tooth loss. With modern materials and methods, restorative dentistry is more natural-looking and comfortable than ever before. In most cases, Dr. Wilmore can restore a tooth with a filling, crown, inlays, onlay, or root canal in a single visit to our Houston dental office.
Patients with missing teeth need immediate treatment. Missing teeth can increase the risk of gum disease, cause remaining teeth to shift, create bite problems or TMJ disorder, and result in additional tooth loss. Studies show that if a missing tooth is not replaced, 20% of surrounding teeth will be lost in the next 4 to 8 years. Our tooth replacement options include fixed bridges, dentures, partials, and implant restorations. Dr. Wilmore will consult with you to determine the best option for your smile.
Whether you need restorative dentistry, replacement teeth, or other services, your comfort will be our top priority. We will treat you with the respect and attention to detail you deserve. Dr. Wilmore will thoroughly explain every step of treatment and provide you with comfort amenities and sedation options to ensure a rewarding dental experience.
