Restorative Dentistry – Alexandria, IN
Restore Your Damaged Teeth
to the Fullest
Tooth enamel is not capable of regenerating after it has broken down. That means if your tooth has a cavity, its condition will only get worse if you don’t have a dental filling or crown placed. Thankfully, Dr. Martinez can restore your tooth in a single visit with a permanent crown. With the help of fast and effective CEREC technology, restoring teeth has never been easier and more convenient. We also offer other excellent solutions for rebuilding dental structure seamlessly.

What if I Do Nothing?
Unlike the common cold or a cut on your skin, the human body is not capable of repairing teeth on its own. The enamel that you have is all that you have, which means when erosion occurs, that enamel is gone for good. This is why dentists constantly stress the importance of maintaining good at-home brushing and flossing habits in between visits. The longer you wait to have your tooth restored, the more your tooth is going to break down and eventually require even more complex treatment to resolve.
With dental crowns, Dr. Martinez can accomplish so much, especially for those who have untreated decay or chipped teeth as a result of an injury. Crowns are typically made from ceramic material due to its natural-looking esthetics; however, they have been made with metal materials in the past. When you receive a crown, it’s customized to your exact needs, whether you need to seal a damaged tooth from oral bacteria, prevent future fractures from occurring, or hide cosmetic imperfections.
Cavities form when plaque and tartar break down tooth enamel, making the inner tooth more vulnerable to bacteria exposure and eventually infection. Instead of relying on silver amalgam fillings to restore teeth, our dental office uses composite resin. This material is a combination of glass and plastic, allowing for easier molding and shaping inside of teeth. Since composite resin can be easily shaded to match your current tooth’s color, you don’t have to sacrifice esthetics just to keep teeth intact.
One Visit Dental Restorations
In the past, designing and creating a dental crown would take about two weeks to complete because we would have to wait for dental labs to complete an order from our dental office. Today, that process goes out the window thanks to CEREC technology. CEREC is an advanced system that allows our dental office to not only design your permanent dental crown digitally but create the crown in-house as well. Because we design the crown digitally and faster than ever before, you can get your crown the same day you arrive and you don’t have to bite into gray impression material to make it happen.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
Do you have several teeth that are severely damaged or even missing altogether? During your consultation, Dr. Martinez will take the time to listen to all of your concerns and make sure that all of your teeth are properly addressed. This allows him to build a personalized treatment plan that effectively restores all of your damaged teeth. Full mouth reconstructions are a form of long-term care that take multiple treatments to complete. The result is a fully restored smile that you feel confident showing off!
