When it comes to dental problems, simple cavities lead the pack in likelihood. In fact, over 92% of the population will experience one or more over the course of their life. If your teeth fall victim to tooth decay, tooth-colored fillings from Dr. Nguyen provide a conservative and comfortable treatment solution that leaves your smile still looking beautifully natural.
Tooth-colored fillings don’t contain any of the metal once found in traditional amalgam fillings; instead, we use high-quality composite resin to rebuild your tooth’s structure and strength. This material is precisely shaded to match your enamel, creating a result that blends right in for maximum confidence. Additionally, the flexibility of composite resin allows us to preserve more of your tooth’s remaining healthy structure during treatment, and sensitivity to changes in temperature will be greatly reduced.
Dental Implant Restorations
When rebuilding teeth that were lost because of disease or injury, our team strongly recommends dental implants as the ideal solution. The construction of implants seamlessly mimics natural dental structure, creating support for both your oral health and your natural appearance that’s build to last for several years to come – in fact, many cases of dental implants function properly for the rest of the patient’s natural life.
At Smile Design Dental, Dr. Nguyen can design and place customized, metal-free restorations over your placed implants for a strong and beautiful appearance you can take pride in. Individual dental crowns are crafted for single implants, while implant-retained prosthetics can cover several implants at once for a more comprehensive solution.
Full & Partial Dentures
If you’ve lost a considerable amount of teeth, even simple actions like speaking, eating, and smiling can become difficult and unpleasant. Thankfully, a custom denture from Dr. Nguyen can help you regain the oral structure and self-confidence you deserve. Our Plano team offers both full appliances (designed to replace an entire arch of teeth) and partial ones (designed to replace certain teeth on a single arch while leaving remaining natural teeth in place), depending on your unique needs. This restorative solution is affordable, reliable, and convenient; many patients enjoy the removable nature of dentures because it allows them to clean and store their device separately when sleeping for added comfort.
Root Canal Therapy
At Smile Design Dental, we want to help patients preserve their natural teeth for life, and root canal therapy can be the saving grace that protects heavily infected teeth from the threat of extraction. During this service, Dr. Nguyen will carefully access the inner chamber of the affected tooth, removing diseased pulp and cleaning away dangerous bacteria. Once he has safely sealed the tooth shut once more, a custom restoration placed on top will rebuild its strength and natural, functional appearance.
Root canal therapy isn’t the scary procedure that patients imagine – our team will ensure your comfort and safety throughout the procedure, and you’ll be amazed by how successful the results are! In fact, many teeth treated with root canal therapy remain for the rest of the patient’s life.
Sadly, tooth extraction can sometimes become a necessity for patients despite our Plano dental team’s best efforts. Common reasons for this include the following:
- A tooth has become badly decayed to the point that restorative treatment is unsuccessful.
- A tooth has suffered a traumatic injury.
- A tooth has to be removed to make room for orthodontic correction.
- One or more third molars (“wisdom teeth”) are threatening the patient’s oral health and wellbeing.
Your comfort and satisfaction is always important to Dr. Nguyen and his team here at Smile Design Dental. Sedation dentistry is available to help patients feel genuinely relaxed and at ease throughout the extraction procedure, and we’ll work with you to devise the ideal reconstructive solution so that your smile isn’t incomplete for long.
Many patients become nervous when faced with an upcoming dental appointment. Maybe you had a bad experience as a child, or perhaps the noises associated with oral healthcare cause feelings of anxiety. Whatever the reason is for your fear, Dr. Nguyen and the rest of our staff here in Plano are dedicated to providing you with a smooth and comfortable experience that leaves you smiling. We offer both nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation, which can help take the edge off of negative emotions and create a more relaxing atmosphere where you’re able to receive the quality dental care you need in peace. Please contact our team to learn more about these sedation dentistry options and which one would be right for your needs and preferences.
