You’ve broken a tooth or lost a filling – oh no! Don’t worry – a dental crown can restore your tooth to its original glory. Porcelain crowns closely resemble natural teeth and can even improve the appearance of your smile. At Powell Dental Care, we use crowns to protect weak teeth, restore broken teeth, cover discolored or badly shaped teeth, and to replace missing teeth.
According to the American Dental Association (ADA), about 90% of Americans 20 years and older develop cavities at some point in their lives. Over time, some of these people lose one or multiple teeth leaving behind a gap that makes their smile less than perfect and potentially low self-esteem. Luckily, residents of Dublin, Ohio, with missing teeth can have dental bridges fitted by Powell Dental Care oral health specialists to restore their smile. Here is why Powell Dental Care specialists and staff are the best in the Powell and Dublin, Ohio area.
Crowns & Bridges
A fixed bridge is a replacement tooth with crowns attached on either side. Unlike partials, fixed bridges cannot be removed. One missing tooth or a few missing teeth in a row can be replaced with a fixed bridge. In many cases, we can design all-porcelain crowns and bridges, so no metal shows in your smile.
Qualified Dental Staff for Dental Bridges and More
Powell Dental Care has a team of qualified and experienced staff some of whom have been practicing dentistry for more than 30 years. For instance, Bill Waddell, DDS has a bachelor’s degree from The Ohio State University, doctorate from The Ohio State College of Dentistry, and has over 30 years of dental practice experience. Moreover, Waddell is a dental evaluator for the MetLife Dental Quality Initiative Program as well as a member of the Ohio Dental Association, American Dental Association, Columbus Dental Society, and American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
Staff at Powell Dental Care offer high quality dental care services hinged on a philosophy of mindful dentistry. This means dental care is based on the overall health of patients, not just their oral health. As such, patients who visit Powell Dental Care undergo a thorough evaluation of their medical history including medication review, nutrition/dietary consultation, gum evaluation, cosmetic evaluation, headache and sleep disorder consultation and TMJ evaluation. Even better, patients receive these services at no additional cost.
State-of-the-art Dental Technology
Powell Dental Care has invested in state-of-the-art dentistry technology. For this reason, staff can easily design all-porcelain dental bridges and crowns with no visible metal elements for patients with missing teeth. What’s more, only trained and qualified staff are allowed to handle the state-of-the-art dental equipment.
If you live in Powell or Dublin, Ohio and have missing teeth, you should schedule an appointment at Powell Dental Care & Advanced Sleep Center where you can be fitted with a custom made dental bridge. Patients also enjoy comprehensive examinations at no extra cost.
Dental implants are often the best solution for tooth loss. The dental implant is placed in bone and functions like a tooth root. Once the bone tissue integrates with the implant (osseointegration), we can place a custom crown on top of the implant post. Implant crowns provide a stable, permanent, and attractive replacement tooth – stronger than your original tooth. Because dental implants are titanium, there is no risk for decay. For the edentulous patient – those missing many or all of there teeth – implants can restore function and esthetics for a confident smile and improved overall health.
