Learn how Dr. Grant Heller of Victoria, TX, can improve the health of your mouth and the appearance of your smile...
Restore the Health of Your Smile
Restorative dentistry refers to different procedures that are designed to enhance your oral health. A dentist can address various problems affecting the teeth, gums, jaw joint, and other structures of the mouth. The goal is to reduce issues such as dental pain, tooth sensitivity, and sore gums while restoring normal function in the process.
Our Victoria, TX, practice offers a wide array of restorative dentistry services. During an appointment, we can go over which dentistry options would be beneficial to your smile.
Will My Insurance Cover It?
Some restorative dentistry procedures may be covered by your dental insurance. Since dental plans vary, be sure to check with your insurance provider. The team at our Victoria, TX, practice can assist you with the claim filing process.
Featured Restorative Procedures
Dental crowns are caps that are designed to protect a tooth that is seriously damaged or decayed. While crowns are traditionally crafted at an off-site dental lab, our practices uses CEREC® technology. This milling unit allows us to create a custom tooth-colored dental crown in just one convenient appointment.
If you are missing a tooth or two, a dental bridge may be the ideal option. A traditional bridge consists of a false tooth that is bookended by two dental crowns. The crowns fit over the teeth adjacent to the gap, which keeps the false tooth fastened in place.
Dentures are used when a person is missing most or all of their teeth. Both full and partial dentures remain in place by bracing around the dental arch. Custom dentures allow patients to bite, chew, speak, and smile with renewed confidence.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots used to treat varying degrees of tooth loss. Implants can be used to support crowns, bridges, and dentures, with remarkable results. The implant-supported restorations look just like a person's natural teeth.
Root Canal Therapy
Also known as endodontic treatment, root canal therapy removes diseased dental pulp, preventing the spread of infection through the mouth. After removing the tissue and sterilizing the pulp chamber, a second appointment is required to cap the treated tooth.
"Grant did an awesome job fixing an old filling and capping a new one. He took great measures on ensuring I did not feel any paint or discomfort. He also took pictures of the tooth throughout the process and explained exactly what he was doing and why. A+ job, will recommend!" Troy Koenig - 5 Star Review
