Here is an overview of the services our general dentist in Sugar Land, TX, can provide you and your family.

Dental Bridges

If you’ve lost some teeth and need a way to bring back your smile, you might be interested in a dental bridge. A dental bridge is a perfect solution when you have a few teeth missing in the same row and want to replace them without having to have surgery.

A dental bridge is a dental appliance that attaches to your natural teeth on either side of a gap in your teeth and fills in the gap with fully functioning and real-looking teeth. Dental bridges are cemented using special dental cement for a stronghold, so you don’t have to worry about your bridge coming out for years.

Dentures/Partials

If you’ve suffered traumatic tooth loss, then finding a way to restore your missing teeth is very important for not only your self-esteem but your quality of life. A partial or full denture is one option if you’re missing an entire arch of teeth or even all of your teeth.

A partial or full denture is a prosthetic set of teeth that attaches to the top or bottom of the mouth and acts like natural teeth. Many patients missing a large number of teeth choose this option over dental implants as they don’t want to have surgery.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is a treatment used to treat the root system of a tooth that has suffered damage. Root canal therapy is often used to save a tooth that might otherwise need to be extracted.

The dentist drills a hole into the tooth and proceeds to clean the tooth and clear out infected parts of the tooth’s root system to protect it from further infection or decay. Once the procedure is complete, the dentist seals the hole in the tooth to further protect it.

Tooth Extractions

A dentist can perform two types of extractions. The first is a simple tooth extraction, which, as it sounds, involves a dentist pulling a tooth. This can be done right at the chairside and does not require anesthesia or sedation. The dentist will pull the tooth by hand or use a set of dental pliers.

The second type of extraction is a complex or surgical extraction. This type is more complicated and typically involves either sedation or full anesthesia. Depending on the complexity of the extraction, the dentist may send the patient to an oral surgery specialist.

Tooth-Colored Crowns

A crown is a type of dental application applied to a broken tooth to restore it to the proper shape and to protect it from further damage. Crowns are often used when a tooth has broken off or is cracked so that it causes pain and makes the tooth unusable.

At Bella Smiles Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we provide tooth-colored crowns for patients because they protect and preserve teeth and are more aesthetically pleasing than traditional metal crowns. Our crowns are purposely made to match the natural color of a patient’s tooth.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Most people recognize what a tooth filling is. Dentists place fillings in teeth that have cavities to fill the hole caused by the cavity once they have cleared out all the damage and debris that was inside the tooth. The filling not only fills the hole but protects the tooth from further damage.

Fillings can be made from various materials, including precious metals like silver, gold, and even mercury. At Bella Smiles Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we specialize in tooth-colored fillings that match the natural color and tone of the patient’s existing teeth.

Emergency Dentistry

No one wants a dental emergency, but when you do, it’s best to get to a dentist as soon as possible to prevent further harm to your oral health.

We handle all types of dental emergencies and can generally take patients on the same day for dental emergency treatment. Some common dental emergencies include things like a lost tooth. This prolonged toothache won’t go away or won’t subside even with medication, lost or missing dental applications, and bleeding, swelling, or soreness that the cause is unknown.

If you experience these problems, come to our dental clinic immediately.
