Dental Fillings

Years ago, dentists used dark, silver-like fillings (amalgams) to fill in the holes left in teeth from a cavity. Not only were these unattractive, they had the tendency to break down over time, allowing for new cavities to form underneath the amalgam. Most dentists, including Dr. Neal, have strayed from this type of filling. Dr. Neal uses tooth-colored composite fillings. They look more natural and they’re actually stronger and safer, too. If you have any amalgam fillings, talk to Dr. Neal about the possibility of replacing them with composite fillings.

Dental Crowns

In cases where dental fillings are not enough to repair the damage from tooth decay, a dental crown may be needed. Crowns are customized to fit the unique mold of your teeth, thereby ensuring that your current bite is maintained. Crowns are custom-made in a dental lab offsite, but while you wait for your permanent one, Dr. Neal can fit you with a temporary crown.

Root Canals

Whether or not you’ve had a root canal procedure, you likely cringe a little at the thought of it. However, root canals have a bad reputation that can make the process seem far scarier than it really is. Our teeth have canals that run through them that contain the nerves. Since these canals are open at the bottom of the roots of our teeth, they are at constant risk for infection. If the canals do become infected, the infection can spread inside the teeth and grow to be very, very painful. The only way to cure this infection is with a root canal procedure.

Most root canals only take one to two visits to complete but could require additional visits if the damage is severe. The recovery time also varies depending upon the extent of the damage and the number of teeth involved. If the root canal was performed on just one tooth, prepare for three to seven days of soreness and tenderness. Of course, if the infection was severe in more than one tooth, the recovery time will be a little longer. For certain candidates, we also offer a pulp-capping alternative to root canals.

Dentures

In the event you lose any of your teeth, you want a functional, reliable way to disguise it. Dental implants are a great option for replacing one or two teeth, but if you’re missing far more than that, dentures are the way to go. Dentures are customized to your mouth to ensure they fit well and function properly while speaking, eating, etc. Dr. Neal also offers partial dentures and flexible partials that are very comfortable to wear in comparison to traditional dentures.
