Fillings

Fillings in Fort Smith, AR

A filling is most commonly used to fill an area of a tooth that has been removed due to decay, also known as a cavity. Fillings may also be used to repair cracked or broken teeth and are occasionally used to repair teeth that have been worn down. Damaged teeth can cause significant pain, and discomfort, and affect your smile’s appearance. By electing to have a filling placed in or on a damaged tooth, you can eliminate the pain and discomfort and restore your healthy and happy smile. Dental fillings are made of various materials including silver amalgam, tooth-colored composite resins, porcelain, or even gold, and your dental professional at New Health Dental can help you to select the option that works best for you.

Braces

Metal is still the most popular material for braces. Today’s metal brackets are smaller, smoother, more efficient, and more comfortable than braces of the past. Traditional metal braces use a combination of stainless steel brackets, arch wires, and elastic ties or bands to gently move teeth as prescribed by your orthodontist. Patients have the option of adding elastics, or rubber bands, to their metal braces for a personalized, colorful smile.

Dental Crowns

Decay or trauma can cause loss of tooth structure and can compromise function as well as esthetics.

Dental fillings are the most conservative way to restore smaller areas of tooth decay. In a dental expert's hands, these types of restorations can be made to conserve as much of your natural tooth as possible while providing a restoration that is almost indistinguishable from the natural tooth. Both resin and porcelain fillings can be adhesively bonded to your natural tooth to add strength.

Root Canal

A root canal is a minimally invasive, nonsurgical endodontic treatment. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and involves opening the crown of the tooth, exposing the roots and pulp of the tooth. When the pulp and root is exposed the infected areas of the tooth are removed.
