Are you missing one or all of your teeth? Restorative dentistry can repair and restore the natural look of your smile. With our restorative dentistry treatments at Hampden Family Dental, you can smile with confidence again!
For small cavities, tooth colored fillings are an excellent choice. To protect your overall health, Dr. Bassett only use mercury-free fillings to treat cavities. Not only are they safer, but they’re also more attractive.
Gentle Root Canal Therapy
If your tooth is suffering from a large crack, cavity, severe pain, or an abscess, Dr. Bassett may recommend endodontic therapy to save it. If the idea of a root canal makes you feel nervous, ask our Hampden Family Dental team about our sedation dentistry options for anxious patients.
Root canal therapy is a relatively painless procedure and we make your comfort our priority. Once your procedure is completed, a dental crown will be placed to protect your tooth from further damage.
Our Denver dentist office offers a full-coverage dental crown, made from luminous porcelain and Zirconia materials. These restorations offer beautiful aesthetic results that protect your natural tooth from further damage or decay. They’re also perfect for topping off your dental implants.
Porcelain Dental Bridge
If you are missing more than one tooth in an area, Dr. Bassett might suggest a dental bridge as a tooth replacement option. Porcelain bridgework is used to replace one or more missing teeth and is anchored to natural teeth (called abutments) on either end of the gap. Dental bridgework will allow you to improve your smile and stabilize that area of your mouth, allowing you to smile with confidence again.
Are you missing one or all of your teeth? Dental implants could be the right solution for your smile. Dental implants are titanium posts implanted in your jaw that act as artificial “tooth roots”, permanently anchoring your new tooth, bridge or denture.
Due to its biocompatible properties, the titanium fuses with your natural bone to create a strong base for your replacement crown or tooth. Your replacement tooth will be carefully crafted to look natural and fit into your smile seamlessly.
Dental Implant Restoration
Problems with dental implants are rare, but they do happen. If you notice your dental implant has loosened, is causing your gums to swell, or the crown on top of your implant is cracked, call Dr. Bassett right away! A dental implant can’t fix itself and if you try to treat it yourself, you could end up causing more damage to your mouth.
Have you lost an entire arch of teeth on the top or bottom of your mouth? Are you going to have your remaining teeth removed because they are too unhealthy to save? You may be able to replace them with fixed dentures, which are supported by dental implants. Fixed dentures offer many advantages over conventional dentures. Call our office today to learn more about how fixed dentures could be the best solution for your smile.
For patients missing all their teeth, we offer traditional dentures to give you back the function, feel and appearance of your natural teeth. If you already have dentures, but hate the way they fit, we offer an implant retainment option for greater stability. We can even retro-fit your existing dentures to snap into place!
Are your existing dentures loose and causing you discomfort? Dr. Bassett can eliminate the problem of slippery dentures using dental implants. Once implants are placed, our Hampden Family Dental team will fit your dentures with attachments that allow the implants to hold your dentures firmly in place. No more sliding around and discomfort!
At Hampden Family Dental our dentures are custom-made for each patient. However, as your mouth changes and adjusts to dentures, they don't adjust to your mouth. This means that as time goes on your dentures may begin to feel too loose or too tight, and you might experience chafing or irritation on your gums.
Our dentists are able to offer services to fix these issues and any others you experience while wearing your dentures. If your dentures no longer fit correctly, are damaged or are causing you discomfort, call our local Denver area office today to schedule an appointment.
