Get Your Smile Back With Restorative Dentistry At Buckwalter Dental Care

At Buckwalter Dental Care, Dr. Darrah has years of experience providing compassionate, caring restorative dentistry. If your smile has been damaged due to oral health issues like gum disease, tooth decay, or an oral injury, our team is here to help you get your smile back. We focus on using the latest tools and techniques to provide stellar results.

Curious about what to expect with restorative treatment? Here’s how the process of smile restoration works at Buckwalter Dental Care:

Step 1: Initial Consultation

During your first consultation with Dr. Darrah, he will perform a comprehensive oral exam to understand the state of your mouth, and the procedures which may be required to restore your smile. He will also discuss your budget, medical history, and preferences to ensure that your treatment plan is tailored to your unique needs.

Step 2: Build Your Treatment Plan

After your consultation, Dr. Darrah will begin designing a custom treatment plan to repair your missing or damaged teeth. A few common procedures used to restore your smile may include:

  • Porcelain veneers – Veneers are tiny, thin shells of porcelain that fit over chipped or damaged teeth, covering them up, strengthening them, and restoring the appearance of your teeth.
  • Dental crowns – Dental crowns are usually used to cover up seriously damaged teeth, such as teeth that have been cracked or affected by tooth decay.
  • Dentures, bridges, or implants – If you are missing one or more teeth, you may need a dental bridge, a denture, or a dental implant. Dr. Darrah will help you determine which of these is the best option, based on your budget and oral health.
  • Root canal therapy – If your tooth has become infected, a root canal will be required to remove the infection, restore the tooth, and cover it with a dental crown to protect it.
  • Tooth-colored fillings – Tooth-colored fillings can be used to treat any cavities you may have, and can even be used to replace grayish mercury-amalgam fillings, which may detract from the beauty of your smile.

Other cosmetic procedures, such as teeth whitening, may be recommended after your teeth have been treated.

3. Confirm Your Plan And Begin Treatment

Dr. Darrah can modify your treatment plan based on your budget and personal preferences. Once you’ve confirmed your plan, your treatment process will begin and you’ll be well on your way to a new, fresh smile. Our team will work closely with you every step of the way to make sure you achieve your smile goals.

4. Enjoy Your New Smile!

Once your treatment is complete, you’ll be free to enjoy your new smile! You’ll no longer have to worry about feeling self-conscious about your teeth, and we’ll send you home with instructions to care for your mouth after your procedure.
