When you come to see our dental professionals at Easton Smiles, you’ll have endless options to repair your worn-down, chipped, cracked, or broken teeth, including dental crowns and bridges, tooth-colored resin fillings, dental inlays and onlays, and porcelain veneers. Whether the entire tooth needs to be recovered and restored, or just a small crack, our goal at Easton Smiles is to help you obtain a replacement that rivals your natural teeth in function, strength and durability.

For damaged or partially broken teeth, our South Easton general dentists may suggest dental crowns and bridges as the way to go for excellent support to the compromised tooth structure. Dental crowns are basically coverings for your entire tooth that look and feel entirely organic. By encircling the tooth around the edge, dental crowns can successfully strength a weakening or cracking tooth, as well as improve the overall aesthetic appearance and reliability of the tooth.

Though dental crowns are often administered at Easton Smiles, if the decay is too deep or the tooth is lost entirely, a dental bridge may be more appropriate. This particular dental appliances preserves your bite positioning and the health of your remaining, adjacent tooth. To place a dental bridge, our dentists will cement two dental crowns to the adjacent teeth to act as anchors for the artificial tooth. Once in place, you’ll never realize which tooth used to be missing, as dental bridges look natural, will last for decades and are a permanent choice for missing teeth.

If you need a tooth recovery or replacement, come to Easton Smiles, and speak with us about your dental concerns and desires.

The general dentists at Easton Smiles don’t like to extract teeth unless it’s absolutely necessary and all other restorative options were attempted to save the tooth, including, but not limited to, root canal therapy, dental fillings, and dental appliances. But when restoration procedures are not enough to save a tooth, our Easton general dentists will suggest that it be pulled or extracted for the sake of your overall wellness.

Tooth extraction procedures today are far less painful than ever before thanks to safe and effective sedatives and anesthetics. In many cases, patients who have their teeth pulled at Easton Smiles only experience slight discomfort and minor bleeding. Before your tooth is extracted, the area will be numbed using an injectable or topical anesthetics like Novocaine. Once the anesthetic kicks in, our Easton general dentists will remove the infected or decayed tooth. Following the procedure, Dr. Herlihy will instruct you on proper precautions and after care so that you don’t get an infection. Occasionally, you will be prescribed an antibiotic following a tooth extraction as a precautionary measure to fight infections.

In order to heal properly and make sure the wound does not open, our dentists recommend that you avoid smoking, vigorous brushing and rinsing, and drinking liquids through straws. To promote faster healing and reduce swelling, our dentists highly suggest applying a cold compress to the outside cheek near the extraction area.
