Middle aged woman in business attire shows off her smileTake a look at your smile in the mirror. Are you unhappy with the way it looks? Is it dysfunctional? Are your teeth missing or broken? If you answered yes to any of those questions, you might benefit from reconstructive dentistry. At James B. Polley, D.D.S., we offer a full range of reconstructive dentistry options to help our patients achieve a healthy, functional, and beautiful smile. Find out if you can benefit from reconstructive dentistry in Summerlin.

You Have Tooth Decay

One of the top reasons you can benefit from reconstructive dentistry is if you have tooth decay. When your teeth develop decay, your dentist needs to remove it to save your tooth. If the decay is large, unfortunately, this means removing a large portion of your natural tooth. Once you lose so much natural tooth structure, you need a reconstructive treatment such as a dental crown, inlay, or onlay to protect your tooth. This also becomes the case when you have multiple cavities in a single tooth or have a large filling. If you have tooth decay or lack a natural tooth structure, you can benefit from reconstructive dentistry.

With Dr. Polley’s help, he can restore your tooth back to complete strength, health, and function. We will also ensure your restoration looks as natural as possible too. We will use our in-office CEREC to create your restoration the same day as your appointment.

You’re Missing Teeth

Another reason why you could benefit from reconstructive dentistry is if you’re missing teeth. Living with missing teeth can make eating, smiling, or biting your teeth together correctly difficult. If you have any number of missing teeth, you need to replace them to restore your smile. Dr. Polley can provide you with dental implants, dental bridges, or dentures to replace your teeth. We will walk you through each option and recommend the best one for your needs. If you’re looking for a secure replacement option, we will always recommend dental implants.

You Have Damaged Teeth

The last reason you might benefit from reconstructive dentistry is if you have damaged teeth. Teeth that are broken or have cracks or chips need help from reconstructive dentistry. Dr. Polley will provide you with dental crowns, inlays, onlays, or bonding to repair your teeth and prevent further damage from occurring. Sometimes, cracks are so deep that they require a root canal and crown to restore. If you have any amount of damage to your teeth, it’s important to visit us for x-rays so we can evaluate just how severe the damage is. After your treatment, your teeth will look amazing and have more strength than ever before.
