There are lots of ways a smile becomes damaged. Teeth grinding and clenching, inadequate hygiene, sports and rigorous physical activity, and a host of other common factors threaten your smile with injury and disease. When teeth become damaged, there are solutions available at Remmers Dental in Louisville, KY. When you visit us, you’ll find a kind and knowledgeable staff that inspires confidence in our repairing abilities. Restorative dentistry requires great skill and an understanding of complex oral health issues. Remmers Dental has served the community since 1966, proving our abilities with our successful treatment of countless patients.
Dental crowns are designed to “cap” off a natural tooth providing it with protection, durability, and lifelike structure. Here at Remmers Dental, we recommend crowns as the ideal solution for a variety of issues including cavities, physical injury, general weakening, and cosmetic concerns. They’re also typically used as the finishing touches for dental implant and root canal procedures. The process for crown placement usually requires two to three appointments. Thankfully, our Louisville, KY practice offers busy patients a much faster solution. With CEREC, we design and place a personalized, tooth-colored crown in just one appointment – no temporary restorations required.
Bridges are designed to replicate one or more missing teeth in a row within a patient’s smile, given that there are still healthy teeth on either side of the gap. Additional dental crowns are placed over these teeth as “anchors” for the bridge giving it a secure fit. Our doctors at Remmers Dental are happy to offer both traditional bridges and implant-retained bridges, which are designed to attach to a small number of implants placed within the jawbone for an even more lifelike fit.

For generations, dentures have offered an effective and affordable way to replace multiple missing teeth, and now, modern-day dentures are better than ever. Thanks to the latest dental materials, they look more natural, fit better, and are guaranteed to last much longer than anything your parents or grandparents might have worn. Whether you are missing a few teeth or need to replace an entire arch, our team will work with you to design a prosthetic that restores your oral function and confidence in your smile at the same time.
Here in Louisville, KY, our dental team is proud to primarily offer tooth-colored fillings. Made from quality composite resin, this cosmetic-minded solution for cavities can be placed in just one simple appointment. After choosing the perfect shade for your natural smile and removing decay from the tooth, one of our doctors precisely sculpts the filling into place taking care to create a lifelike appearance. Then, a special light hardens the composite resin in place completing the procedure.
Besides the obvious aesthetic component, tooth-colored fillings offer our patients several benefits when compared to traditional amalgam fillings. We don’t have to remove as much of your tooth’s natural structure to accommodate the composite resin, allowing teeth to stay stronger. It also isn’t affected by changes in temperature like amalgam, resulting in more comfort overall.
People are busier than ever these days, meaning most simply don’t have the time to attend the two appointments necessary to get a damaged tooth repair with a dental crown. Thanks to our CEREC technology, we can now design, fabricate, and place a completely custom-made restoration in just one streamlined visit. With this approach, there is no more waiting, no unreliable temporary crown, and no messy impressions. A patient simply walks in, and then they walk out with a fully restored smile.
Unlike other traditional tooth replacements, dental implants actually restore an entire tooth both above and below the gum line, making them uniquely stable and durable. Plus, this root-crown design helps them perfectly mimic natural teeth in every way, enabling a patient to smile with ease and enjoy any food without worry. Whether a patient is missing one tooth or needs a full denture, implants can bring their complete smile back for a lifetime to come.
