Restorative Dentistry in Slidell, LA

Rejuvenate Your Smile!

Dental restorations are typically performed for patients with chipped, cracked, or weakened teeth, but can also include dental implants or bridges to replace missing teeth.

Did you know that a single missing tooth can cause neighboring teeth to drift out of place? This can also lead to additional tooth loss and other complications. No matter if you are missing one or all of your natural teeth, the team at Off The Trace Dental can help you achieve the kind of smile you've always wanted.

tooth-colored fillings - restorative dentistry in Slidell

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings are the most common restorative treatment. In fact, these procedures are so common that the average U.S. adult has three fillings. What's more, 25% have 10 or more! Tooth fillings are an effective way to seal a tooth once the decayed portion of a cavity has been removed. Our dental practice offers tooth-colored fillings to correct cavities without diminishing the appearance of your smile. 

dental crowns  - restorative dentistry in Slidell

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are designed to restore the structural integrity of a tooth following dental trauma or disease. Dental crowns can be crafted from porcelain or metal, but usually include a combination of the two. When a dental crown is placed, it covers the exposed portion of the tooth known as the crown. Dental crowns are used to strengthen the tooth, prevent further deterioration, and restore its appearance. Dental crowns are often placed to correct chipped or cracked teeth as well as to fix a large cavity or to reinforce the tooth following a root canal procedure. Dental crowns can also be added to a dental implant to restore function to the tooth.

dental bridges - restorative dentistry in Slidell

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is often used to replace a missing tooth (or two teeth in a series). When a dental bridge is placed, two healthy teeth around the missing tooth are fitted with dental crowns. These crowns support a false tooth known as a pontic. While a dental bridge does a great job of restoring your smile's appearance, the main goals of this therapy are to prevent teeth from drifting out of place and restore function to the missing tooth and its opposing tooth.

dental implants - restorative dentistry in Slidell

Dental Implants

For several decades, dental implants have been considered the gold standard when it comes to tooth replacement therapy. Dental implants offer many advantages over other tooth replacement options. Since the post of the implant fuses with the jawbone, the stability and durability are very similar to that of a natural tooth root. When restored with a porcelain or zirconia crown, the result can look virtually identical to a real tooth. 

There are some downsides to this type of treatment. The cost may be out of range for some patients. And, the process requires patience; from the time the implant is surgically inserted to the time the crown or restoration is placed can take around 9 months. We would be happy to consult with you in order to determine if this is the right treatment for you.

root canal therapy - restorative dentistry in Slidell

Root Canal Therapy

In root canal therapy, infected tissues from the pulp chamber and root canals of the tooth are removed. The voids left are filled with a natural, biocompatible material known as gutta-percha. Since a relatively large amount of tooth material is being removed, the tooth is often restored with a dental crown. Like most dental practices, we have the resources to perform minor endodontic procedures, but for more complex procedures, we may refer you to a local endodontist.
