Restorative Dentistry FAQs

If you are interested in revitalizing your smile but have questions, learn more about restorative dentistry below:

How long do dental implants last?

Implants are permanent. Dental implants are made of titanium metal and inserted into the jaw bone. Once they fuse with the bone tissue, they are a part of the mouth.

Can you whiten dental crowns?

No, crowns cannot be whitened, even with professional care. This is because crowns are made of porcelain ceramic. Crowns are also meant to brighten the tooth enamel. If you have an old crown that needs to be replaced, please let us know and we can help.

Are bleeding gums caused by gum disease?

In some cases, patients may have bleeding gums because they brush their teeth too aggressively. However, bleeding gums from brushing and flossing can also be a sign of gum inflammation. Also known as gingivitis, gum inflammation is an early stage of gum disease that we can treat in our office.

What can I do if I clench and grind my teeth?

Teeth clenching and grinding, also called bruxism, is a common symptom of TMJ disorders. Physical therapy, a soft diet, and nightguards can alleviate jaw and tooth pain caused by bruxism. These treatments alleviate pressure from the jaw and also stop tooth wear or dental injuries.
