Dental Restoration is the process of bringing back your teeth and gums to their natural function after the damage of tooth decay. First, Dr. Kevin Morich and Dr. Jodi Morich want you to be able to eat, speak, and have a beautiful smile that gives you confidence. Moreover, when you have decay, pain, or sensitivity we can help by repairing the damage to restore your teeth to full function.

In addition, our team of dental professionals will work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your specific needs and concerns.

Finally, with our advanced techniques and state-of-the-art equipment, we can provide high-quality, long-lasting dental restorations that will have you smiling with confidence once again.

Our Restorative Services Include:

  • Fillings
  • Gum disease therapy
  • Crowns and partial crowns (onlays)
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Dental bridges
  • Restoration of dental implants

Fillings for Dental Restoration

Fillings are the most common restorative procedure. When a tooth has developed decay, it becomes necessary to restore the tooth and place a filling. Furthermore, we offer tooth-colored filling materials to our patients, so we can provide a long-lasting restoration that blends in beautifully.

In addition, good oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new fillings. Moreover, by following these steps, you can help ensure your fillings last as long as possible.

Crown Placement and Dental Restoration

Crowns are a restoration that encases the entire tooth surface, restoring it to its original shape and size. In addition, a crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations. Furthermore, although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth-colored) is the most popular, because they closely resemble your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting smile. Ultimately, crowns are an effective way to restore and protect damaged teeth.

CEREC Technology

At Macadam Dental, we use the most advanced practices to make your dental visit convenient, effective, and timely. Furthermore, within a single visit, we can create a crown or veneer using CEREC (CERamic REConstruction) technology.

Your treatment will be more pleasant and faster than ever because the dental prosthesis is created digitally. In addition, Dr. Morich scans your mouth using a camera to capture the treatment area. As a result, CEREC will effectively show the status of your teeth with exact detail and high-quality images.

Next, he will then create a 3D model of the dental restoration on the computer, and subsequently, the restoration is milled from a ceramic block in the office.

Importantly, patients no longer have to use a temporary crown while they wait for a laboratory to create one. In fact, in most cases, we can complete this process in under two hours.

Periodontal Disease Therapy

Periodontal Gum Disease is a problem that most people don’t even know they have. In many cases, it doesn’t have any noticeably irritating side effects apart from gums that regularly bleed and is therefore often overlooked. However, this condition should not be ignored, as it can lead to serious consequences if left untreated.

Periodontal disease is usually the result of multiple causative factors. For instance, heredity, cigarette smoking, and poor oral hygiene can all contribute to the process. Furthermore, if not caught in the early stages by a dental professional, it can lead to soft tissue recession and bone loss in the mouth and jaw. Consequently, the loss of bone can eventually lead to loss of teeth. Fortunately, regular dental visits can help reduce the effects of periodontal disease through early detection and preventive education.

In addition, our hygienists take pride in thoroughly explaining all that our patients can do to keep their teeth and gums as healthy as possible. By incorporating more transition words, the text flows more smoothly and the connections between ideas are clearer.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is a treatment that is indicated in situations where the nerve within a tooth has been irreversibly traumatized by decay, fracture, or infection. Specifically, this procedure is necessary when the inner pulp of the tooth has become infected or inflamed, often due to deep decay, a crack or chip in the tooth, or repeated dental procedures.

Root canal treatment is a highly specialized process that is ideally performed by a specialist using microsurgical techniques. This complex procedure involves carefully removing the infected or inflamed pulp, cleaning and disinfecting the inside of the tooth, and then sealing it to prevent future infection. While our practice can be helpful in the evaluation and diagnosis of this need, we are proud to assist our patients in a referral to a trained endodontic specialist when this will be the best course of action.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges give us the ability to replace anywhere from one to several teeth in a row. Moreover, in addition to loss of function, missing teeth can be aesthetically challenging. Consequently, we use dental bridges to give you back the form and function of your natural teeth.

Dental bridges use the teeth adjacent to a space where teeth are missing to support an aesthetic prosthesis that mimics natural teeth. Furthermore, they are very durable. However, dental bridges and dental implants each offer individual benefits to restore spaces where teeth are missing. On the one hand, dental bridges are a more cost-effective option. On the other hand, dental implants provide a more permanent and natural-looking solution.

Dental Implant Restoration

Dental implants are an excellent solution to replace missing teeth. Importantly, they do not require any treatment of adjacent teeth. Furthermore, together with a specially trained oral surgeon, our dentists will provide a team-oriented approach to create natural and functional results after a surgically placed implant is ready for restoration. This collaborative process ensures the best possible outcome for the patient.
