Dental Implant Services
The dental industry has grown technologically by leaps and bounds in recent years, but problems may still arise with your oral health, and you may lose teeth. When losing a tooth, oftentimes the most practical option for replacement is a dental implant. There are many advantages to dental implants that can lead to a better, more comfortable life. These include improved appearance, improved speech over traditional dentures, extreme comfort, no worries when eating, durability, and an overall boost in oral health. Dental implants are an incredible way to replace teeth that restore the confidence in your smile.
Inlays & Onlays
These are a common type of restoration that helps protect the tooth after a cavity or other damage. Inlays are done only on the top of the tooth, where all of the chewing takes place. We match the color of the inlay to the color of your tooth to ensure that you can smile confidently.
Onlays are a more extensive type of restoration that covers more of the tooth than an inlay. Though they are more involved than an inlay, they are done with the utmost confidence so that you will be satisfied with the way your cavity was treated.
With our in-house porcelain specialist, the crowns that we create at A Downtown Dental Group are undeniably perfect! These porcelain crowns will become the new outer layer, and the first line of defense against bacteria, for your decayed or damaged tooth. Our porcelain expert will match the color of your crown to the color of your tooth with great accuracy.
Requiring at least two visits, a crown is a simple procedure that requires extreme precision. On the first visit, we will fit you for a crown by taking impressions to make a mold of your mouth. Then, the mold will be taken to aid in the creation of your custom crown. The crown will not only improve the functionality of your tooth, but it will also improve its look.
Yet another way to replace a missing tooth is a fixed bridge. This type of restoration is very common and is often a less expensive alternative to dental implants. Fixed bridges are a great way to perform your dental makeover! Made of crowns, bridges are held into place by natural teeth or dental implants.
The benefits of having fixed bridges to replace your missing teeth are life-changing. They immediately improve your ability to resume normal functions that are affected by the loss of a tooth, such as chewing and speaking.
Other Restorative Options
Other important options that we offer include root canal therapy and tooth-colored dental fillings. Whether it’s having your fillings blend in with the color of the rest of your teeth or guarding against future bacteria invasion in the pulp chamber under a tooth, our practices will ensure that you have spectacular oral health after your visit.
No matter which restorative procedure is being performed, you can rest assured that the job will be done to perfection. At A Downtown Dental Group, restorative dentistry is never taken lightly by our dentist in Honolulu. Helping restore a smile is immeasurable. Whatever is ailing you, we have the remedy!
