Don't Suffer With Hurting Teeth
There is no need to suffer with a damaged tooth. If your tooth is broken, chipped, or fractured, see Willamette Valley Prosthodontics as soon as possible. Otherwise, your tooth could be damaged further or become infected, possibly causing you to end up losing the tooth. Dr. Levine can repair your tooth using a variety of methods that will cater to your needs.
If you have any questions about how you can have a healthy, attractive smile like many of our other patients, please contact us today.
We can fix minor cosmetic dental problems, such as closing small gaps between teeth, adding tooth length or changing the overall shape of a tooth by bonding a special resin to your tooth. Bonding is the least expensive dental procedure that can fix such issues compared to porcelain veneers or porcelain crowns.
Metal fillings are virtually a thing of the past. At Willamette Valley Prosthodontics, we have the technology to replace any unattractive metal fillings with natural looking tooth-colored fillings making them almost invisible to the naked eye. These composite fillings are structurally bonded to your teeth making them much less likely to fall out which was a regular problem with silver/amalgam fillings.
Situations where a filling might compromise tooth structure and where a full crown is not necessary, an inlay or onlay will be placed to restore tooth damage caused by a cavity or trauma.
A crown is sometimes termed a "cap" or "jacket." A crown will restore a large filling or a cracked tooth to its original size, shape and tooth color. A crown may be recommended after root canal therapy has been completed, as the tooth tends to become weaker and is more likely to fracture. A crown can strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and improves the appearance of your teeth.
A full mouth reconstruction is the combination of multiple restorative treatments to rebuild a smile affected by advanced periodontal disease, extensive tooth decay, tooth loss, and other serious oral health issues. Dr. Levine is widely recognized for his ability to restore beauty, balance, and function to even severely compromised smiles. Dr. Levine provides stunning results in a caring manner to ensure that the patient understands every step of their procedure.
Occasionally a patient may become anxious and can't relax. There are forms of conscious sedation that allow a patient to relax and/or become sleepy. Forms of conscious sedation may involve inhaling a gas, taking an oral medication, getting an injection or receiving medication intravenously.
