Why should you see a restorative dentist for these concerns?

Restorative Dentistry Can:

Improve Dental Function

If your tooth is compromised in any way, it can be difficult to chew normally or even speak clearly. These conditions can also be unbearably painful. A restorative dentist can provide a personalized solution to restore normal function and ensure your comfort.

A Completely Beautiful, Healthy Smile

At the dental practice of Dr. Ettienne van Zyl, we believe that the health and beauty of the smile go hand-in-hand.

Missing, damaged, or badly decayed teeth can cause pain and discomfort, as well as difficulty eating and speaking. Fortunately, with the help of restorative dentistry procedures, Rogers, AR​-area patients can rebuild their smiles so that they are just like new again.   

Dr. van Zyl has a wealth of experience administering procedures that improve the health, strength, and functionality of the teeth. He can accurately diagnose problems, and recommend the best course of treatment for reaching optimal oral health. We want everyone to enjoy a lifetime of healthy smiles. If you have neglected your smile, there is no better time than now to seek treatment, so issues do not worsen.

Dental Implants

Missing   teeth   is  a problem that should not be left untreated. Poor oral hygiene is the most common cause of tooth loss, which is why brushing, flossing, routine dental visits, and preventive measures are imperative. However, when tooth loss does occur, Dr. van Zyl typically recommends dental implants for patients. These titanium posts are surgically placed into the jaw to function as an artificial tooth root. Over time, the implant fuses with the surrounding bone, becoming a permanent fixture in the mouth.

Dentures

We offer complete and partial dentures to help restore a patient's smile after experiencing significant tooth loss. Dr. van Zyl works with patients to identify the type of denture that will best meet their needs. Your traditional or implant-supported prosthesis will be custom crafted to match your surrounding teeth for a beautiful and natural-looking smile. In the past, dentures were often uncomfortable and tended to shift around in the mouth.

Full-Mouth Reconstruction 

Individuals with considerable oral health issues may require full-mouth reconstruction. During this process, Dr. van Zyl evaluates the condition of the patient’s teeth  and   gums ,   and develops a treatment plan consisting of a combination of procedures. Restorative treatments, such as dental crowns and dental bridges, may be administered to repair badly damaged or  decayed   teeth ,   or dental implants may be recommended to replace missing teeth. Dr. van Zyl will also evaluate the gums for any signs of periodontal disease and the jaw for TMJ disorder, which both require treatment.

Dental Crowns

In the past, dentures were often uncomfortable and tended to shift around in the mouth.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are an option for patients with up to three missing teeth in a row. A bridge is made up of two dental crowns affixed to prosthetic teeth. The crowns fit snugly over the healthy, natural teeth, and the artificial teeth fill in the open space. Dental bridges restore the strength and functionality of the  teeth,  and help improve oral health. Additionally, the beauty of your smile is greatly enhanced by our high-quality, customized bridges.

Inlays & Onlays 

If your molars are too badly damaged by decay for a dental filling, but not enough for a crown, dental inlays  and   onlays   may  be a good compromise. Created from impressions of your teeth, these restorations are designed to fit like puzzle pieces into the damaged part of your tooth for a comfortable and durable fit. Both inlays  and   onlays   are  made of tooth-colored resin, allowing them to blend in seamlessly with your smile. 

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a fast and effective treatment for restoring minor damage to your teeth, including cracks, chips, discoloration, or imperfections in size or shape. During a short procedure, we will select a shade of bonding material that matches your tooth, apply it to the tooth, and then mold it into the desired shape. This treatment both strengthens your teeth long-term and eliminates cosmetic flaws for a more dazzling smile.
