Orland Park Dentist Provides Treatments To Address Severe Dental Damage

Written by Dr. Zaibak on May 16, 2017

Our Orland Park dentists firmly believe that no smile is beyond help. We know that it can feel overwhelming to pursue restorative treatment after your smile has been damaged, but undergoing prompt restorative care can make a huge difference for the health and appearance of your smile in the long-run.

If you are not sure what kind of treatment options are out there, our dental team is here to help. Keep reading to get a quick overview of the treatments we commonly use:

Customized crowns

Dental crowns are used to rebuild portions of teeth that have either chipped away or have been removed due to infection. Our dental team makes sure that the crowns we place honor the patient’s overall dental structure, and maintain healthy bite surfaces. We also shade restorations so that they blend with the patient’s natural enamel.

Dental bonding

Dental bonding is one of the fastest treatments available; bonding can be completed from start to finish in just one dental appointment. During treatment, our team applies custom-shaded composite resin to the natural tooth structure, and then we cure it so that it bonds to the enamel. Bonding is used to correct cracks and chips, close gaps between teeth, and cover stained and discolored enamel.

Root canal therapy

This treatment is used to treat teeth that are severely damaged. Once an infection has spread to the core of a patient’s tooth, the tooth will likely require root canal therapy. Our dentist clears away the dental pulp and nerves, cleanses the remaining dental structure, and then restores the tooth with a restoration. Root canal therapy can save teeth that would otherwise fall out on their own over time, or need to be pulled.
