Restorative Dentistry In Shreveport
Are you missing one or all of your teeth? Restorative dentistry can repair and restore the natural look of your smile. With restorative dentistry treatments, you can smile with confidence again!
For small cavities, tooth colored fillings are an excellent choice. To protect your overall health, Dr. Simpson only uses mercury-free fillings to treat cavities. Not only are they safer, but they’re also more attractive.
CERECⓇ Same Day Dental Crowns
Dr. Simpson is certified to use the CERECⓇ crown restoration system. This system makes it possible for patients to receive a customized crown on the same day of their appointment rather than having to wait 2 weeks for a crown to be created and placed.
These restorations offer beautiful aesthetic results that protect your natural tooth from further damage or decay. They’re also perfect for topping off your implants or as the final step of root canal therapy. Learn more about CEREC dental crowns.
You don’t have to live with a gap in your smile! Our Shreveport dental practice offers metal free bridges, crafted from porcelain and Zirconia to replace your missing tooth. These durable white restorations enhance your smile’s health and appearance.
Are you missing one or all of your teeth? Dr. Simpson is one of the only dentists in the Shreveport area that surgically places dental implants in his own office, instead of referring you elsewhere for the surgical phase.
Using a titanium post, these artificial “tooth roots” act as a secure support can permanently anchor your new tooth, bridge or denture.
Dental Implant Restoration
Problems with dental implants are rare, but they do happen. If you notice your dental implant has loosened, is causing your gum to swell, or the crown on top of your implant is cracked, call Dr. Simpson 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? We offer both traditional dentures and implant stabilized dentures here in our Shreveport office.
All-on-4 Dental Implants
With All-On-4, dental implants are stabilized together with a prosthesis to allow you to use your teeth immediately. If you are a good candidate for this type of dental implant, you can expect to have your teeth in just one day! Everyone’s case is unique but the vast majority of the work done by Dr. Simpson will be done before the implant surgery.
Gentle Root Canal Therapy
If your tooth is suffering from a large crack, cavity, severe pain, or an abscess, Dr. Simpson may recommend gentle root canal therapy to save it. If the idea of a root canal makes you feel nervous, don’t let it! We offer oral sedation and nitrous oxide (laughing gas) sedation options for our patients who experience dental anxiety.
Root canal therapy is a relatively painless procedure. Your comfort is always our priority. Once your procedure is completed, a dental crown will be placed to protect your tooth from further damage.
Our team at South Shreveport Dental is always here to answer any questions you have about restorative dentistry.
