Quality dental restorations are needed when a tooth or teeth need to be repaired or replaced. Several restoration methods are used in dentistry. Check out our detailed list below.
Fillings can be made of various materials, including porcelain, gold, or amalgam. A filling is used to rebuild a tooth suffering from a cavity and restore it to its normal function when you chew or bite down on something.
Dental crowns can also be used to repair cracked, damaged, or chipped teeth and will also restore your smile. They are designed to match the color of your natural teeth, so they blend in well. Referred to as dental caps, they are used to shield the teeth.
Bridges are utilized to restore missing teeth, give you your beautiful smile back, and ensure that you can speak clearly. They are applied when it is necessary to replace several teeth.
Veneers are placed over the front of extremely discolored teeth that have stains or malformation. They are solid and durable, so you will be able to chew as usual and have a beautiful smile at the same time.
When it comes to quality teeth restorations, dental implants are a great choice. While Dr. Mark Johnson and his team utilize all the above procedures for restoring damaged or missing teeth, they promote dental implants as an excellent option since they are strong, durable, and act just like natural teeth. Dental implants can restore one missing tooth, several missing teeth, or a whole mouthful of teeth and are preferred by most people over traditional dentures that can slip or move around in your mouth. You can brush and floss them like regular teeth and will have a beautiful smile that can last a lifetime.
Dr. Johnson has always loved assisting others and aspired to be a dentist himself. He started private practice after receiving his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Missouri in Kansas City, where he has served the Albuquerque community for almost three decades.
Dr. Johnson's dental team's objective is to instruct, educate, and encourage their dental family to strive for and achieve optimal oral health, as well as to provide valuable, excellent dental care in a warm, friendly, and compassionate atmosphere.
He constantly expands his knowledge through continuing education classes in procedures like Invisalign® and various dental techniques. He and his colleagues work hard to go above and beyond your expectations.
