Taking care of your oral health is a lifelong commitment. We understand there can be hiccups along the way. If you are dealing with oral disease or other tooth issues, Dr. Mahler can help restore your mouth to its original health.
Our Restorative Dentistry Services
We offer a variety of restorative dentistry services in the Chicago Loop.
If you’re diagnosed with a cavity, we may recommend a tooth filling. A filling is a way to restore your damaged tooth back to its normal function and shape. When you visit us for a filling, we’ll remove the decaying material from your tooth, clean the area, and then fill the empty cavity with a filling material.
If the soft tissue inside the root canal of your tooth becomes inflamed or infected, you may need a root canal. A root canal will restore your ability to chew and bite with normal efficiency. During this procedure, we remove the soft tissue and clean and seal the inside of the tooth.
CROWN & BRIDGEWORK
We offer crowns and bridges in order to strengthen damaged teeth or improve a tooth’s appearance, shape, or alignment. Both crowns and bridges are fixed prosthetic devices in your mouth.
Dental Crown: A crown completely covers your tooth from your gumline to its chewing surface. There are several types of crown materials, including ceramic and porcelain. The dentist will make a recommendation on which is best for your tooth.
Dental Bridge: A bridge covers the gap created by one or more missing teeth and is made up of two crowns. A bridge can be supported by either natural teeth or dental implants.
If you have a diseased or missing tooth, dental implants help improve your smile, comfort, and overall dental health. Dental implants are permanently fixed in your mouth and act and feel just like a real tooth.
“Dr. Mahler is a perfectionist! This was the most thorough dental exam and cleaning I have ever had. He made the process of having to get a crown comfortable and pain-free. His explanations were thorough and his demeanor calming. Highly recommended!” – Ralph K.
What To Expect with Restorative Dentistry Procedures
Once we’ve diagnosed your dental health issue, we’ll determine the best course of treatment and discuss our recommendations with you.
Whether you need a filling, dental crown or bridge, root canal, or dental implant, we’ll make sure you understand the process. We’ll walk you through the entire procedure and let you know what to expect.
Dr. Mahler and the Smile 312 team will happily answer any questions you have. We want you to feel confident and comfortable as you head into your restorative dentistry procedure.
