Make Your Smile Look Good as New

With Restorative Dentistry in Roanoke

Restorative dentistry focuses on replacing damaged or missing teeth. At Peters Creek Dentistry, we offer a variety of restorative procedures designed to repair and restore your teeth and keep your mouth healthy and properly functioning.

The restorative dentistry services we provide include:

Dental implants are used to replace a missing or severely decayed tooth. They are oral prosthetics that address the bone tissue breakdown that happens when there is a missing tooth. This artificial tooth and root consist of a biocompatible (not harmful to living tissue) metal called titanium. The implant is surgically placed in the jaw and forms a bond that will hold the implant in place. A crown is placed on the implant.

Dental implants function like a natural tooth and they are often indistinguishable from a natural tooth, which is why many choose this option for tooth replacement.

If you chip, break or fracture a tooth, visit Peters Creek Dentistry as soon as possible. Sometimes these situations occur outside of normal office hours, so we offer emergency and after-office services for immediate chipped tooth repair. If you’re a current patient and have a dental emergency, please call us at (540) 562-4001.

It’s important to seek immediate treatment for a chipped or broken tooth because, left untreated, it can become more damaged and may become infected. An infected tooth can lead to more serious health concerns and the possibility that you may lose the tooth.

If you chip a tooth and cannot get to a dentist right away, there are a few steps you can take at home to help:

  • Take an over-the-counter pain reliever like ibuprofen
  • Rinse your mouth with salt water to limit infection risk
  • Don’t bite down on a broken or chipped tooth and only consume soft foods or liquids
  • If the chipped tooth has a sharp, jagged edge, cover it with wax paraffin or a piece of sugarless chewing gum to protect your mouth

Once you can come into our office, we have a few methods for fixing a chipped tooth. We can apply a filling or bonding to the tooth to repair the damage. These options retain the look of your natural teeth.

In some cases, we may apply a dental veneer, which is better for a front tooth that is chipped or broken since the veneers help your tooth look healthy and flawless.

In severe cases, tooth extraction may be required, and you may need to consider a dental implant for chipped tooth replacement.

Implant restorations are a broad term for the many types of dental implants available. You may have a single tooth replaced with a single implant restoration.

You may have two or three teeth that need to be replaced at once. That is what’s called a dental implant bridge.

Some of our patients require implants for dentures. When you have multiple teeth missing or heavily damaged or decaying teeth, you may need a few dental implants. These dental implants can form a base for dentures.

Because dental implants are designed to act like a natural tooth, they may sometimes need repair. To limit the need for implant repair, visit our office regularly for checkups and cleanings and maintain healthy dental habits of brushing and flossing between the natural teeth and any dental implants.

Dental crowns are another option for a chipped or broken tooth with significant damage. The dental crown is made of a tooth-colored composite resin and fits over the entire tooth for a seamless, natural look.

A dental crown will strengthen the tooth and protect it from additional damage.

If you have a chipped, broken, damaged, decaying or missing tooth—Peters Creek Dentistry provides restorative dentistry services in the Roanoke, VA, area, that can make your teeth as good as new. Contact us right away if you experience any of these conditions, so that we can get to work restoring your smile to its original beauty.

    Dr. Ryan and his staff are awesome. Very friendly, down-to-earth and welcoming. As much as I dislike having anything done to my teeth, they make it "painless" in every sense of the word!

    Let me start off by saying I have went to many dentist in the Roanoke area. I have really bad anxiety when it comes to my teeth and I was always so nervous, to the point of dentist offices refusing to help me. This location is much different. They took my worries and fears away. Dr. Ryan is a fabulous dentist that I have been seeing for almost a year now and I have had two-three procedures. I will recommend this place to everyone I can. Thank you Dr. Ryan and staff for always making me feel at ease.
