We can help people with missing or damaged teeth very easily. It might mean something as simple as a filling or a bonding to repair a broken or chipped tooth. It might mean we crown a tooth to give it a more lifelike appearance. It might mean that we put an implant in to replace the tooth that's not there. It might mean that we do some bridges that will replace several missing teeth and make the smile look more natural and be more pleasing to the patient.
If we have a damaged tooth or if we have missing teeth, it can lead to problems, whether it be health problems or just functional problems. To leave a tooth that's damaged, it may lead to further damage. It may lead to pain. It might lead to an infection. Leaving a space open might lead to shifting of teeth, chipping of teeth and just not being able to restore that properly later on. So it's important to take care of missing teeth and it's important to take care of teeth that are damaged.

Restorative Dental Care 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 with them. Instead, we use 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 “canal” of your infected tooth during a root canal procedure, then fill it 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 major dental damage, including cracks, breaks, and severe decay. Crowns can also conceal cosmetic flaws like misshapen or discolored teeth.

There's many ways to restore your tooth. You might know about fillings— that's one way. We do the white-color fillings here. So, we match the color of the tooth. They're really nice, strong materials that last a good, long time, provided you take really good care of your teeth. Sometimes, we can't do that, we need to cover that tooth. Something with, what we would call, a “crown.” What that does, it just covers the tooth and makes the tooth stronger. We can use it in a porcelain shade to match your teeth. It just makes the teeth look beautiful. Bridges are another thing that you may have heard of that we can be either cemented, just like a crown can, or it can be removable, such as a partial denture. For the patients that don't have any teeth, we can do dentures, do top and bottom. We can have implants that help hold those dentures in. There's many way to restore your smile and everyone has a unique, unique problem that we can take care of.
- Dental Implants – Replace any number of teeth by restoring implants with 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 an implant also offers nearly as much biting power as a natural tooth.
- Dentures – This restoration offers 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.
- Dental Bridges – A 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.
