Restorative Dentistry in Lenexa
When our patients find themselves in need of restorative solutions, we’re always here to help with the widest possible range of modern solutions, including everything from minor fillings to lifelike crowns to transformative full mouth reconstructions. Dr. Dennis Ayer believes in providing treatment that combines long lasting durability with gorgeous aesthetic quality, so that patients can enjoy a truly ideal smile that looks and feels exceptional. Our treatment options include the following:
Traditional Dental Crowns & Bridges
Crowns are an important cornerstone of restorative care because of their versatility; we can use them to correct areas of severe decay, structural damage, and even cosmetic flaws in a seamless and high-quality fashion. Our Lenexa, KS, dental team also uses custom-made crowns as a vital component of dental bridges, which can be used to replace one or more consecutive missing teeth. By relying on crowns as anchors that securely adhere to neighboring healthy teeth, we can attach your new bridge in a strong and durable manner, beautifully replenishing your smile.
Root Canal Therapy
It’s a priority for Dr. Ayer to help patients maintain their complete, natural smile if at all possible. That’s why our team offers root canal therapy, a saving grace for severely damaged teeth that are facing possible extraction. During this procedure, we’ll carefully access the inner chamber of the affected tooth in order to thoroughly clean out bacteria. The area will then be sealed to reduce the threat of further infection. Finally, we’ll place a beautiful, lifelike crown on top that replenishes any lost structure, leaving you with a tooth that’s healthier and happier than ever.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
As much as our Lenexa dental team tries to avoid it, extraction can sometimes be necessary in order to protect and preserve the health of a patient’s smile. This is never truer than when your wisdom teeth begin to erupt, which can lead to a whole host of potentially dangerous problems. If Dr. Ayer inspects your unique smile and determines that extracting your wisdom teeth is for the best, then we’ll be sure to handle the procedure as precisely and gently as possible in order to minimize your discomfort.
Dentures and Partials
Removable prosthetics (dentures) have been the go-to method for replacing lost teeth for hundreds of years, and today, many patients still appreciate their affordability and convenience. If you determine that dentures are the best treatment option for your situation, Dr. Ayer will be happy to design a lifelike, customized appliance that beautifully replenishes your smile. Both full and partial dentures are available from our office, depending on your needs. Implant-retained prosthetics are also an option for patients looking for more permanence and security for their smile!
