Dr. Cheloha Gives You Choices to Repair Dental Damage

Biting into that homemade peanut brittle that Aunt Betty sent seemed like a good idea at the time. However, the cracking sound you heard may not have been the candy. And the pain you feel will likely make you swear off peanut brittle for good.

So what do you do now? Well, we recommend that you call the Scottsbluff dental office of Dr. Gary Cheloha. He’s an experienced and compassionate cosmetic dentist who will alleviate your discomfort and help you choose the dental restoration that’s right for you.

Fillings, Crowns, Implants – Where do you start?

Your appointment at Monument Smiles will consist of a thorough examination and a one-on-one discussion of your individual needs. The dental restoration you and Dr. Cheloha choose to renew your damaged tooth will depend on a variety of factors, including:

  • The degree of damage
  • The location of the tooth
  • Whether additional teeth are involved
  • Your preferences for restoration

If your discomfort is caused by a cavity, a composite resin filling tinted to match your natural tooth color can revitalize your tooth and restore comfort.

An inlay or onlay may be what’s needed to renew a tooth that requires more restoration than a filling provides but isn’t a candidate for a crown. (Think of inlays and onlays as big fillings.)

A dental crown restores the form and function of a cracked, broken, or badly decayed tooth.

If you need a tooth extracted and replaced with a prosthetic, your choices include crown and bridgework or a dental implant. An implant provides the most lifelike restoration, as it replaces both the root and crown of a tooth to mimic natural tooth structure.
