Restorative Dentistry – Columbus, OH
Fixing Your Damaged,
Decayed or Worn Smile
Your teeth are very strong, and the enamel that protects them is the hardest substance in the body. But even enamel can weaken and break over time; it’s also vulnerable to decay caused by the harmful bacteria in your mouth. If you see signs of a damaged tooth, it’s important to get in touch with Third Street Dental as soon as possible so that Dr. Glamm and Dr. Mulholland can start working on a solution, using a custom plan for restorative dentistry in our Columbus, OH dental office.

There aren’t any living cells in enamel, which means that a tooth can’t reverse the damage caused by decay by itself. We need to replace the material that was lost with a filling. Instead of traditional metal fillings, we prefer to use composite resin, which can be shaded in order to match the color of your tooth. In other words, we can restore the strength and function of your smile without having to sacrifice the tooth’s natural appearance.
A dental crown is a small cap that covers and protects the entire tooth. It can be made out of gold or other metals, but porcelain is generally preferred thanks to being able to blend in with natural enamel easily. We can place dental crowns for various reasons, such as to strengthen the tooth’s structure, restore a fracture or other types of damage, cover discoloration, protect a tooth that has received root canal therapy, or attach a bridge.
