Dr. Smita Sabharwal compassionately serves people with dental services in Arlington and the surrounding communities.
Tooth-Colored Filling and Bonding in Arlington
Minor decay and damage are treated at SKS Dental with tooth-colored fillings. These fillings are made of composite resin that is matched to the natural color of teeth, providing restorations that are nearly invisible. Tooth-colored resin can also be molded to repair cracks and cover discoloration. The resin is affixed onto teeth, so Dr. Sabharwal can preserve the maximum amount of the tooth’s structure.
Root Canal Therapy to Preserve Teeth
When decay has advanced to the point where a patient is experiencing a toothache, then Dr. Sabharwal may recommend root canal therapy. This treatment is no more painful than receiving a filling, although it requires more time. The bacterial infection inside the tooth is removed, and this prevents tooth loss.
After root canal therapy, the dentist places a lustrous, life-like porcelain crown over the treated tooth. This protects the tooth and ensures its full function. Crowns are customized to match neighboring teeth, and they provide a durable chewing surface and a beautiful aesthetic result.
Many Treatment Options after Tooth Loss
When people experience tooth loss, there are several options available to replace teeth.
- Dentures and partial dentures closely resemble natural teeth. Partial dentures clasp onto neighboring teeth, and a full arch of dentures adhere to gums with adhesive paste. Both types of dentures provide many of the functions of real teeth, and they are designed to enhance your appearance.
- Permanent bridges can replace several missing teeth in a row. They are anchored onto adjacent teeth using two porcelain crowns. These bridges appear very natural, contribute to the overall health of your jaw, and provide strong chewing ability.
- Dental implants are titanium posts that fuse with the jaw bone to provide a tooth root for a porcelain crown. Implant supported restorations by far are the best way to recreate the look and feel of natural teeth.
Restoring Health to Gums
Many people forget that teeth cannot remain healthy if the gums are diseased. Dr. Sabharwal provides extensive periodontal cleanings that include tooth scaling and root planing for advanced gum disease, periodontitis.
