Restorative Dentistry

Restorative Dentistry in Baton Rouge

Over a lifetime of use, teeth eventually wear down. The surface of a tooth isn’t as smooth as it used to be and teeth become sensitive to temperatures. That’s where Appleton Prosthodontics can help. Dr. Appleton and his team of healthcare professionals help individuals in Baton Rouge restore dental functions, improve their quality of life, and return to a better smile.

Comprehensive Service in East Baton Rouge Parish

There is no denying the importance of a good, reliable set of pearly whites. We use teeth to eat, speak, and perform countless gestures, including smiling to show our amusement. When teeth are damaged or lost, it can hinder a person’s ability to do these. Dr. Appleton and his team help patients restore their dental health through restorative dental procedures.

Services offered at our practice include:

Crowns and Dental Bridges repair or replace teeth. Crowns and tooth-colored caps which rest over teeth, while bridges fill the space left by missing teeth using adjacent teeth as anchors.

Bonding repairs cracked or chipped teeth using material that matches the color, transparency, and sheen of natural teeth. Many patients choose bonding as an effective way to repair and reshaped uneven, damaged teeth.

White Fillings are used to fill cavities after decay has been addressed. These restorations blend well with natural teeth, causing patients to choose this option over traditional amalgam fillings for its discreet nature.

Full and Partial Dentures replace missing teeth using a prosthetic set that rest over gums an anchor onto remaining teeth. These restorations imitate teeth and gums to appear as a natural set. Many use dentures as an affordable way to restore minor dental function.

Dental Implants are the most comprehensive way of replacing a missing tooth. This treatment, in combination other restorations, can replace an entire tooth, from the root to its crown, and completely restore function to the smile.

Patient-Centered Dental Care

In addition to repairing worn down teeth, restorative dentistry can address a host of issues, including missing teeth, birth defects, and sporting injuries and other trauma. Additionally, restorative dentistry naturally improves the appearance of patients’ smiles through restoring key structural aspects.

As part of our dedication to supplying patients with comprehensive care, our practice offers treatment for patients suffering from bruxism. 

Bruxism is excessive teeth grinding, which can cause excessive wear, chipping, loose teeth, headaches, and other detriments to your health. Additionally, bruxism makes it difficult for patients to receive restorations in the future. If you think you may have bruxism, schedule a conference with Dr. Appleton as soon as possible.
