Through our expertise, our advanced technology, and our dedication to personalized service, we’re confident we can meet your entire family’s restorative needs.
Do you have a decayed or broken tooth you need to restore? Our dentists can help with a custom-made crown. Your crown will be made from natural-looking porcelain or another durable material and placed over your damaged tooth, restoring its strength, functionality, and appearance. Once in place you can look forward to better oral health and confidence. What’s more, your crown can be easily cared for with simply brushing and flossing.
For patients who need to replace a missing tooth, a bridge can help you fill in the gap in your smile. A bridge consists of a false tooth and two abutment crowns that are placed over the healthy teeth on either side of the gap you’re filling. Following treatment, you’ll enjoy better health and confidence as you preserve your smile’s integrity. For a more solid alternative to bridge, we may recommend treatment with a dental implant.
If you have one or more decayed teeth, our Stevens Point dental team can help you treat them with tooth-colored fillings. This service is a strong, durable, and discreet alternative to treatment with traditional metal fillings. It’s also a more conservative option because tooth-colored fillings bond to teeth in a way that metal fillings don’t. If you’ve been embarrassed in the past by unattractive, gray fillings, let our dentists talk to you about the cosmetic and restorative benefits of this service.
A root canal is performed when an infection develops inside a tooth where the nerve is located. During this common and straightforward procedure, the infection is removed, along with the nerve, and the tooth is capped by a custom-made dental crown that restores its strength and appearance. If you’re experiencing a severe toothache or sensitivity to hot and cold foods or drinks, we can help you decide if a root canal is right for you.
If you need to have one or more teeth extracted, our Stevens Point office can help. The reasons for extracting a tooth can vary. Maybe one of your teeth is excessively decayed or broken, or maybe you need to have a few teeth removed before replacing them with a full or partial denture. We can help patients in a variety of circumstances with quick, comfortable service at Point Place Dental.
Dentures and Partial Dentures
Whether you need to replace a few teeth or an entire row of teeth, we have denture options that can help you. A partial denture features multiple teeth on a gum colored base and is typically held in place with clips or brackets, unlike a bridge, which is secured in place. A full denture, meanwhile, features a full row of teeth and is often held in place by suction or an over-the-counter denture adhesive. During a special consultation appointment, our team will help you assess your needs and talk to you about the benefits of restoring your smile with a partial or full denture.
