Restorative Dental Care in Little Rock
Crowns are covers or caps that act as dental restorations for fractured, weak, or otherwise misshapen teeth. They can also be used to support a filling or bridge and cover a dental implant. Crown procedures at Arkansas Family Dental can be performed same day.
A bridge is a series of crowns fused together used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. They are permanently cemented to your existing teeth and can be fabricated with porcelain, a combination of porcelain and metal, or gold.
Full dentures are removable prosthetic teeth appliances that restore smiles for patients who have lost all of their teeth, whether on the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both. Some denture wearers utilize adhesives or dental implants to stabilize dentures during everyday use.
Essentially removable bridges, partial dentures are made to replace missing teeth. They are made of a molded acrylic plate that mimics your gums and holds false teeth. This attaches to natural teeth on either side of a space by metal or acrylic attachments.
Fillings are used to fill fissures in the teeth after cavities have been removed due to decay. They can be made using silver-colored metal amalgam or tooth-colored resin.
Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. Each implant consists of a metal post placed into your jawbone, which is then capped by a crown. They can also be used to retain and stabilize dentures.
