Foothills Family Dentistry is a leading provider of restorative dentistry services in Colorado Springs, CO.
We can repair or replace your broken, chipped, lost or missing teeth with one of these common restorative dental procedures.
Bonding is a proven method for repairing chips, cracks, stains and gaps in your teeth. Special composite resin materials are blended in a color carefully chosen to match your tooth. It is then applied to your tooth, shaped to just the right contours, and hardened—or bonded—into place. Bonding results in an instant, noticeable improvement in the appearance of your teeth.
Gone are the days when a filling meant silver or gray spots on your teeth. Today, we can create a filling that complements your tooth color and blends to create a more natural-looking smile. These fillings may be done in one or two visits, depending on the condition of your tooth and the type of filling required.
A crown covers and supports a weak or broken tooth, strengthening the tooth and improving its appearance. Crowns also can be used to attach a bridge, restore a dental implant, or cover teeth that are discolored or poorly shaped. Our crowns can be made to mimic your existing teeth or changed to enhance your smile.
A bridge is an artificial tooth or set of teeth used to replace missing teeth. When attached to surrounding teeth for support, a bridge can help maintain the shape of your face and alleviate the stress in your bite. This restoration may be made from gold, alloy, porcelain or a combination of these materials. Unsightly gaps can be eliminated, resulting in enhanced chewing ability and an improved appearance.
Traditional dentures are conventional, immediate and removable. We can fit you with full or partial dentures to replace multiple missing teeth, restoring proper function and improving your appearance.
If you have a missing tooth or require an extraction, Dr. Wall may be able to replace your natural tooth with an artificial tooth, or dental implant. Replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant not only restores the appearance of your teeth, it can offer long-term relief from pain and restore your natural ability to chew.
What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a man-made tooth root that occupies the position your natural tooth once held. Implants are made from a biologically safe metal and are designed in various shapes and sizes to fit your individual needs. Candidates for implants can include anyone, from a teenager that has lost a tooth due to a football injury to an 80-year-old that has worn dentures for 30 years.
