Are you having tooth trouble, pain, or occasional discomfort? It could be related to one tooth that needs to be restored and strengthened. Adental crowns dentist at Geary Dentistry in Brookfield, WI will restore and reinforce your smile with a new dental crown. It’s an effective solution for a troubled tooth.

A Common Dental Treatment
The placement of a single crown is a common restorative treatment. Dental crowns help rebuild a tooth’s structure and provide much-needed support. Most crowns are made of either porcelain or porcelain fused to a metal framework (PFM), and are designed to protect your teeth for years. They look and feel just like the outer enamel of your teeth, yet they are less likely to stain, crack, or chip.

When Are Dental Crowns Needed?
You may need a dental crown if you have an existing restoration that is large or wearing at the surface of other teeth. One ill-sized tooth could begin to push the others out of place and cause crowding or dental pain. Your Brookfield, WI dentist will reinforce the tooth with a new custom crown that is a better size for your smile. This will help relieve pressure on your other teeth. You might also need a crown if a tooth is protruding unnaturally, has been injured, or shows signs of damage that could make the inner part of the tooth vulnerable to infection.

Long-Wearing Dental Crowns 
Many people have their dental crowns for so long that they forget they’re there. They are long-wearing dental devices that provide your smile with support, stability, and a more favorable appearance. If you do need one, the sooner you have it placed, the better for your long-term dental health.

A Dental Crown May Help

Have you considered restoring your lost tooth with a dental implant? Brookfield, WI, dentists, Dr. Terence Geary and Dr. Mary Eileen dental implantsGeary, explain how your smile can benefit from this innovative restoration option.

Replace your entire tooth with dental implants

Rebuilding your tooth starts with replacing the roots. During the dental implant procedure, titanium dental implants are placed in openings in your jawbone to take the place of natural tooth roots. Unlike other types of metal, titanium actually bonds to your jawbone, making it the ideal choice for implants. The bonding process is the longest part of the process and can take about three to six months.

A new root won't do you much good unless you also replace the tooth above the gum line. An artificial crown, designed to look like surrounding teeth, is attached to the top of an implant. The crown fills the gap in your smile and also makes eating easier and more enjoyable.

Most people are good candidates

Dr. Terence and Dr. Mary Eileen Geary will examine your mouth and jawbone when you visit their Brookfield office to determine if you're a good candidate. In most cases, implants are a good choice if:

  • You're in good health.
  • You don't smoke or are planning to stop smoking. (Smoking can also affect healing and increase the risk of implant failure).
  • You don't have gum disease.
  • You practice good oral hygiene.

You must also have sufficient depth in your jawbone to support an implant. It's not unusual for your jawbone to shrink after you've lost a tooth. If that has happened, you may be able to have bone grafts to restore the bone before the implant procedure takes place.

Dental implants can give you back your smile. Whether you've lost a single tooth or have lost all of your teeth, implants offer an excellent, long-lasting tooth replacement option. Find out if you're a good candidate for dental implants by making an appointment with Brookfield, WI, dentists, Dr. Terence and Dr. Mary Eileen Geary, by calling (262) 860-1500.

Learn more about getting dental implants in Brookfield and whether they are right for your smile.

Tooth loss can feel like the end of your beautiful smile, but not so fast. Our Brookfield, WI dentists, Drs. Terence and Mary Eileen Geary, dental implantshave the answer you’ve been looking for. Dental implants have been restoring countless smiles and yours could be next. So, why might you want to consider dental implants?

Prevent your other teeth from shifting around: When you lose one or more teeth there is a visible gap where the tooth once was. Of course, as time goes on if you don’t fill that gap you better believe that your natural teeth will start to shift into that open space. This can cause a series of issues such as crowding or other misalignments. Crowded teeth are also more challenging to clean, which could lead to decay in the future.

Protect the health of your jawbone: As if tooth loss wasn’t bad enough, this problem can also lead to other issues for your smile. Since these tooth roots are no longer around to stimulate the jawbone this means that the bone will begin to deteriorate. A deteriorating jawbone is a serious problem because it can also impact the shape of your face, causing your chin to recede and your cheeks to sink in on themselves, which can prematurely age you. By getting dental implants you can actually prevent bone deterioration and quite literally save face.

Restore chewing: When you are missing one or more teeth it can make chewing certain foods a real challenge, not to mention how tooth loss can affect your speech. Fortunately, implants can fully restore your smile back to its strength and durability, making simple tasks like eating and speaking feel like second nature again.

Improve your appearance: This is a pretty obvious one but it’s nice to know that a dental implant is designed to function like tooth roots and provides an artificial tooth that looks and acts like a real one. No one will even know which tooth or teeth are actually implants (unless you want to tell them). Plus, having a full smile again will certainly renew confidence in your smile.

Now that you have a better idea how dental implants could help you are you ready to take the plunge? If so, then it’s time to call Geary Dentistry in Brookfield, WI to schedule your no-risk consultation.
