Tooth Restoration Options
Dr. Canatella offers all-ceramic crowns to help patients repair the strength and appearance of decayed or broken teeth. Ceramic restorations are durable, and they mimic the appearance of natural enamel. As a result, our New Orleans patients can smile with a new found sense of confidence and wellbeing. And using our special CEREC machine, we can design and mill fully customized restorations in just one visit. If you need a ceramic restoration for one or more teeth, our office is happy to help.
Dental Crowns and Bridges
A crown and bridge, also known as a fixed bridge, is a special restoration designed to help you replace one or more missing teeth. Bridges combine a prosthetic tooth with one or two abutment crowns (an abutment crown is a crown placed over an existing tooth to stabilize a bridge). Why is replacing missing teeth important? Because having one or more gaps in your smile can cause significant problems. Over time, your teeth may drift out of alignment, making you more vulnerable to decay or gum disease. You may also lose more teeth as time goes by. Filling the gap(s) in your smile with a bridge will help you preserve your health and your smile's alignment.
Root Canal Therapy
If you have an infected tooth, our New Orleans dental team can help you save it with a root canal treatment. During your procedure, Dr. Canatella will remove all traces of infection from your tooth in addition to your tooth's nerve. Then, we will fill it with a special bio-compatible material known as gutta percha. Once these steps have been completed, we'll cap your tooth with a custom-made crown to restore its strength and appearance. Following your procedure, you can look forward to a healthier, stronger smile and better oral wellbeing.
