Can’t eat properly because of missing teeth, extensive decay or old, poor-fitting appliances? Do you experience pain or discomfort while chewing? Your dentist in Marrero, LA can bring back full chewing ability and help you enjoy meals again. Dr. Landry is an experienced dentist who provides same-day restorations and several teeth replacement options.
Dental restorations bring back function and improve your smile’s appearance. Depending on the problem and the extent of damage, Dr. Landry may recommend tooth-colored fillings, root canal therapy, dental crowns, dentures, dental implants or a full mouth reconstruction. We are one of the few dental clinics in the area offering CEREC same-day restorations, where we create and place crowns, veneers, and bridges in one appointment.
Missing teeth must be replaced immediately to prevent problems like shifting teeth, bone loss, and chewing issues. Dr. Landry offers high-quality, lifelike bridges and dentures that last a long time. If you wear old appliances that hurt or cause discomfort, Dr. Landry can examine the device and determine if it needs to be adjusted or replaced.
Dental implants are small titanium screws that serve as replacement tooth roots. The screw is embedded into the gums or jaw and allowed to fuse with bone. The artificial tooth is then attached on top. Dr. Landry recommends dental implants or implant retained dentures if you are looking for maximum stability and comfort. Because implants restore teeth from the root to the crown, they are the closest things to the real deal.
