Restoring Smiles with Louisville Restorative Dentistry
Louisville Dentist Providing Dental Restorations
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 either of our locations, you’ll find a staff that emphasizes continuing education and dental office technology that inspires confidence in our reparative 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.
A Wide Range of Restorative Dentistry Treatments
Restorative dentistry is a broad designation that describes a number of dental care procedures, all designed to repair and enhance your worn smile. The restorative dentistry treatments available at Remmers Dental include dental implants, dentures & partials, dental crowns & bridges and root canal therapy.
Dental Crowns and Bridges
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.

Many patients feel a chill rush over them when the words “root canal” are uttered, but the truth is, advances in dental technology and anesthesia have rendered this treatment as comfortable as having a common filling placed. Better yet, it could be the perfect solution for rescuing your badly decayed tooth from the threat of extraction. The procedure involves one of our doctors in Louisville carefully accessing the inner chamber of the tooth, removing bacteria, and replacing the diseased pulp with a safe, biocompatible substance. Once we’ve sealed the tooth, a beautiful, custom-made crown from our CEREC machine seamlessly restores lost structure.
