Restorative Dentistry in Lincoln
When tooth decay or damage gets in the way of your healthy smile, quick attention is necessary to save the tooth from extraction and prevent issues with surrounding teeth. Missing teeth should be replaced as soon as possible. Turn to Vacek Family Dentistry for expert restorative and replacement dentistry. Our team provides the traditional crown and bridge, dental implants, and same-day dentistry from the comfort of our state-of-the-art office.
Crown and Bridge Replaces Missing Teeth
The crown and bridge replaces one or more missing teeth quickly and effectively. A dental crown is placed on each surrounding natural tooth, and the prosthetic teeth create a literal bridge by filling the space in between. A dental bridge restores the patient’s ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence while also preventing the surrounding teeth from shifting out of place.
Dental Implants: A Comprehensive Solution
While the crown and bridge provide an effective tooth replacement, nothing fills gaps in a smile better than dental implants. They are the next best thing to your natural teeth. By replacing your missing tooth’s root as well as the visible crown, a dental implant provides support for the jawbone and give your new tooth unsurpassed stability.
The benefits of dental implants include:
- Better jawbone health with the stimulation provided by the prosthetic root
- Dental implants can secure an ill-fitting denture
- Prosthetic teeth fit well from day one
- Restored ability to eat what you want
- Cared for properly, dental implants last a lifetime
Not everyone is a candidate for dental implants. Patients should have plenty of supporting jawbone structure and be in good oral and overall health to undergo the procedure for dental implants. When too much of the jawbone has degenerated as a result of the missing teeth, bone augmentation procedures -- like bone grafting or sinus lift -- can help to prepare the oral cavity for dental implants. Discuss your eligibility for dental implants with your implant dentist.
Same Day Dental Crowns
When dental decay or injury require more help than a simple filling can provide, a dental crown provides an effective solution. It is a thin cap that fits directly over the affected tooth. Traditionally, the procedure for dental crowns requires two visits to the dentist with weeks spent waiting with a temporary crown. But Vacek Family Dentistry has invested in CEREC, or chairside economical restoration of esthetic ceramics, to make the procedure far more efficient. Now, your dentist can prepare for, manufacture, and place your dental crown in just one visit.
CEREC crowns use digital impressions to capture an image of your mouth. Aside from eliminating the need for those messy, uncomfortable impressions, the digital imagery provides your dentist with a more accurate image of your mouth -- and that improves treatment planning for a crown that fits, looks, and feels just like it should.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy will repair a damaged tooth to save it from needing to be removed. By extracting the inner most layer of the tooth, its health and function are restored. A custom-made dental crown will be placed over it to enhance the appearance of your smile.
