At Buckwalter Dental Care, Dr. Joel Darrah believes that everyone deserves the smile of their dreams. If you have chipped, damaged, stained, or missing teeth, we can help! Led by Dr. Darrah, the Buckwalter team specializes in a variety of dental procedures to help you restore your beautiful smile.
If you have a severely damaged, decayed or misshapen tooth, a dental crown may be the perfect solution for you. A dental crowns, or a cap, is placed on the tooth, most often after a filling or root canal. Crowns are built to mimic the appearance, function and feeling of your natural tooth, and are cemented in place for a permanent fit. They help preserve the integrity of your existing tooth, and restore your smile.
If you have a missing tooth, a dental implant is a great restorative option. Using a two-part implantation process, a titanium post is first implanted into the gum where the missing tooth used to be. This post will bond to the surrounding tissue, permanently attaching itself to the gums and jaw. Then, Dr. Joel Darrah will permanently attach an abutment and crown to the exposed post. With proper care, dental implants will last your entire life, permanently restoring your smile.
Dental bridges are a less-invasive method of restoring missing teeth. As the name suggests, dental bridges literally “bridge the gap” created by a missing tooth. Two dental crowns are attached to the teeth on either side of the missing tooth, and a prosthetic is placed in between them. Dental bridges are preferred by those who wish to avoid lengthy surgeries, and are ideal for those who are not candidates for dental implants.
Dentures are sets of false teeth built to fit over your gums, providing a natural appearance without requiring surgery. If you’re missing multiple teeth and you wish to avoid surgery, partial or complete dentures are a great option for restoring the natural appearance and function of your smile.
