Posted on: January 16, 2013

Here at Old Alabama Dental Care, we offer all dental restorations to all our patients in and around the Alpharetta, Roswell, Johns Creek, Duluth, and North Atlanta, Georgia areas.

What types of dental restorations are available?

This manufacturer specializes in bridges, crowns, onlays, inlays, and veneers.

What are the advantages of dental restorations?

A number of benefits to using these products include the following:
  • Ceramic material gives them a natural appearance.
  • Products are tailored to each patient’s mouth, which means they fit exceptionally well.
  • The restorations are comfortable to wear.
  • The materials are durable.

Which product is right for me?

The answer to this question will depend on the type of defect you are trying to remedy. The most common uses of these products include the following:
  • Inlays and onlays: Replace traditional metal fillings in the mouth to give teeth a more natural appearance
  • Crowns: Restore teeth after a root canal or whenever a tooth is extremely decayed
  • Bridges: Replace a series of missing teeth in the mouth
  • Veneers: Fill in gaps between teeth or modify teeth that are slightly crooked

What can I expect during a procedure?

This will depend upon the exact restoration that’s being performed. Procedures can be done by Dr. Gary Taylor on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia, and patients return home or to work shortly thereafter. Most procedures require more than one office visit, as your molds/impressions are sent to a lab for expert fabrication.

Should I be aware of any special considerations?

After having any restoration, your mouth may feel tender and sore for a day or so. You may need to exercise caution when eating or drinking for a few days, so it might be necessary to avoid eating hard foods. We will provide post-treatment instructions. It’s important to brush and floss regularly after having dental restorations of any kind, since these devices do not protect patients against future dental problems.

Will the cost of dental restorations be covered under my insurance plan?

That depends on the plan, the procedure being performed, and the reason for having it. Some dental restorations are considered cosmetic in nature, which means that many dental plans do not cover them. This restriction can sometimes be waived if the patient has suffered an accident. The staff at Old Alabama Dental Care will be happy to discuss any insurance concerns with you at the time of your visit.Since 1985, Old Alabama Dental Care has been helping patients in the Alpharetta, Roswell, Johns Creek, Duluth, and North Atlanta, Georgia areas have healthier smiles.
