Repair Your Teeth with Restorative Dentistry

Life can do a real number of your teeth, causing dental damage that can make you feel self-conscious about your smile. In addition to impairing your smile’s appearance, damaged or missing teeth can affect its functionality too. You might find it tough to chew certain foods or speak clearly.

Restorative Dentistry Fixes Your Dental Damage

Here are some common dental problems along with the restorative dentistry services that Van Buskirk & Krischke DDS, LLC use to remedy them:

  • Cavities. Composite tooth fillings blend seamlessly with your smile. We don’t even need a drill to repair small cavities. Instead, we use a high-tech tool that uses air pressure to quickly and painlessly remove decay. Most patients don’t even require anesthesia! For larger cavities, we can place tooth-colored inlays or onlays.
  • Tooth infection. Our dentists remove infected pulp from the inner “canals” of your teeth during a root canal procedure, then fill them with an inert material. We usually seal the tooth with a dental crown to protect it from further damage.
  • Breaks or cracks. We use dental crowns made of high-quality zirconia to fix the major dental damage, including cracks, breaks, and severe decay. Crowns can also conceal cosmetic flaws like misshapen or discolored teeth.

Restorative Dentistry Also Replaces Missing Teeth

Dr. Mark Van Buskirk and Dr. Michael Krischke also offer multiple options to replace missing teeth. Dental implants can serve as a stable foundation for several of them, including dentures, dental bridges, or dental crowns. One of the biggest advantages of dental implants is how they help prevent bone loss. A restoration attached to a dental implant also offers nearly as much biting power as a natural tooth.

Dentures offer an affordable way to replace several missing teeth or a whole mouthful of missing teeth. We even offer immediate dentures that you can wear while you wait for your final dentures to be fabricated.

A dental bridge can replace a single missing tooth or several missing teeth. Some people find a bridge more convenient than dentures since it doesn’t need to be removed for cleaning.

We Keep You Comfortable During Restorative Dentistry Procedures

As with any procedure in our Crown Point, IN dentist office, our caring staff does everything they can to keep you comfortable and relaxed. We offer you amenities like:

  • Cable TV
  • Starbucks coffee
  • Warm towels

We can schedule longer appointments for you to help calm your nerves, and our dentists will thoroughly numb your mouth with local anesthesia so you won’t feel a thing!
