Restorative Dentistry in Dallas, North Carolina

Return your smile back to its original glory with Dr. Crawford’s restorative dentistry services.

If you notice your grin doesn’t glimmer the way that it used to, don’t let it weigh you down. It’s easy to lose confidence in your appearance when it’s affected by age or trauma, and it’s even worse when it becomes apparent each time you smile or laugh. Dr. Crawford’s restorative dentistry office has many available treatments for you to fight back against less-than-desired effects of nature.

Our restorative dentistry services include:

If a tooth breaks, you’ll want to come by our restorative dentistry office at your first convenience. We can quickly correct the problem with a dental crown. When damage only extends above the gumline, a dental crown will be placed to prevent the injury from spreading and compromising the rest of your tooth. Dr. Crawford can examine the tooth after it’s been cleaned, and quickly determine if you’ll need an extraction or not. If your cloud has a silver lining and you qualify for dental crown placement, we can do that swiftly and effectively.

Dental crowns are also used to anchor a dental bridge. When you have an unsightly gap created by one or more missing teeth, you’ll be able to ask our restorative dentistry office in Dallas, North Carolina about our available bridge procedures. It’s a prosthetic that will be permanently attached to your other teeth, which will give the appearance of a whole, intact gumline. Your function will be up to speed as well, so you can enjoy your favorite foods once more.

Dental implant restorations are the final steps of the procedure. After the titanium base has successfully fused with your bone structure, you’ll be ready to have the abutment and crown placed. Dr. Crawford can attach these in her restorative dentistry office to complete your new, improved dental work.

Dr. Crawford provides dentures and partials for patients that want a removable solution to their tooth loss. Dentures replace all of your teeth along the lower, upper, or both gumlines to help improve your bite and appearance. Partials, or partial dentures, are a viable choice for patients that are missing one to three teeth in a row. Full dentures stay in place by suction, and a little denture adhesive, and partials are clipped to teeth which lie adjacent to the gap.

Although root canals get a bad reputation, they’re actually vital for patients that have a tooth infection, but want to avoid an extraction. A root canal is a routine restorative dentistry procedure that becomes necessary once an infection has reached the nerve of your tooth. Commonly called the pulp, it’s this nerve that alerts you to the decay occurring beneath the enamel, where it can be difficult to see. Dr. Crawford will go into the tooth, remove the decaying tissue, and cleanse the bacteria from the area. She’ll then fill the space with natural-colored resin and top it all off with a crown so that bacteria can’t re-enter.

Dr. Crawford sees patients from Dallas, Applecreek Village, Gastonia, Bessemer City, and nearby North Carolina areas.
