We offer many tooth replacement options at McConnell and Woolf Family Dentistry in Fuquay Varina. One option, the dental bridge, is non-removable and uses the two teeth adjacent to the gap to create a literal tooth bridge. We can create your custom dental bridge out of tooth-colored materials, such as porcelain, to restore the beauty as well as the function of your smile.
Your custom dental bridge can be completed in just a few appointments. If you are missing teeth, we invite you to call or visit our office today to schedule your consultation with one of our dentists. Together, you can determine if a dental bridge or another tooth replacement option, such as a dental implant, is right for you and your smile.
Dental Implant Restorations
Dental implants are perhaps the most effective and natural-looking treatments for those who are missing teeth, restoring strength, stability, and support to your smile. A dental implant will replace the crown and root of a missing tooth, and our dentists work with local board-certified oral surgeons and periodontists to complete the implant process. After the oral surgeon or periodontist has surgically placed the titanium implant into the jawbone, you will visit McConnell and Woolf Family Dentistry in Fuquay Varina to receive the implant restoration.
Depending on how many teeth you are missing and your individual treatment plan, your implant restoration could be a crown, a bridge, or a denture. Your implant restoration will be created and placed with both aesthetics and function in mind. If you are missing teeth, please call our office today to schedule your implant consultation. We would love to help you learn how implant dentistry can benefit you!
Dentures and Partials
Another tooth replacement option we offer is the denture. Dentures can be either complete (for those who are missing all of their natural teeth) or partial (for those who have some natural teeth remaining). Both complete and partial dentures are very important in helping keep your mouth (and any remaining teeth) in good form.
Dentures can, in most cases, be created and placed in just a few appointments at McConnell and Woolf Family Dentistry in Fuquay Varina. No matter how many teeth you are missing, we can help you achieve a complete, functional, and beautiful smile once again. To learn more about dentures, please schedule your consultation with one of our dentists today. We’ll be happy to help you determine whether dentures or another dental treatment is best for you.
Root canals at McConnell and Woolf Family Dentistry in Fuquay Varina are a pain-free and effective option for those who have significant tooth damage or decay. Our dentists will often recommend a root canal over an extraction because a root canal will allow you to keep your natural tooth and will not cause any problems with the surrounding teeth. We may recommend root canal therapy to restore a tooth that has a decayed or decaying pulp, an abscess, or that has received a significant injury.
Typically, a root canal will require just one or two visits to the office. Following the root canal, our dentists will place a dental crown over the treated tooth for additional protection and aesthetics. While we make every effort to treat here, in some cases it is necessary to refer to an endodontist (root canal specialist) to provide you with the best treatment. To learn more about how root canals and restorative dentistry can help you achieve your oral health and smile goals, we invite you to contact us soon.
Fillings are used to repair teeth that have been affected by minor fractures, cracks, or decay. At McConnell and Woolf Family Dentistry in Fuquay Varina, we provide white (composite) fillings. During your consultation with one of our dentists, you can determine which type of filling material is right for you or your child.
Your filling will be placed in just one visit to our office. During your visit, we will remove the compromised portion of the tooth, clean the healthy tooth, and then place, shape, and polish the filling. White fillings are closely matched to the color of your existing teeth for the most natural and beautiful appearance possible. To learn more about white fillings, please call or visit our office today.
