Restorative care can alleviate pain and discomfort, prevent further complications, and allow you to get back to your day-to-day routine. By replacing missing or damaged teeth at Skylyn Dental Associates in Spartanburg, you can feel great about how you look, eliminate pain, and eat your favorite foods again.
To begin the process, Dr. Paul Gibas, Dr. John Dunbar, or Dr. Adam Brantley will provide you with a comprehensive oral exam, usually including X-rays. This allows your dentist to understand the unique challenges facing your mouth and ensures you get the proper treatments for your situation.
Your dentist will then diagnose the issue and recommend the treatments he believes are the best option for you, based on your oral health, your budget, and your personal preferences. After receiving your custom treatment plan, you’ll need to schedule one or more appointments at our Spartanburg office to get the care you need to restore your smile.
We offer composite fillings for cavity treatment. Composite fillings are tooth-colored and are ideal for restoring visible front teeth, since they look and feel completely natural.
Root canal therapy is required to treat infected teeth. In this procedure, a small opening is made in the tooth, and then the infected pulp and other material is removed and replaced with a rubber-like substance. Then, the tooth is covered with a filling or crown to restore its shape, appearance, and function.
We use custom, lab-made ceramic dental crowns to cover up and restore teeth. Crowns are tooth-shaped dental prostheses that cover up the entire structure of your tooth, so they are ideal for restoring broken and infected teeth, and for covering up misshapen, severely stained, and uneven teeth.
Dental bridges are related to crowns. They use two crowns to suspend one or more false teeth over the gap where you’ve lost one or more natural teeth. They are a permanent, long-lasting method of restoring your smile.
Partial dentures are made of a metal and plastic frame that holds one or more false teeth in place. These dentures usually attach to your healthy teeth using special metal clips, which hold them in place tightly while you speak, eat, and live your day-to-day life. If you’ve lost several teeth but do not want dental implants or bridges, partial dentures may be right for you.
