Because our goal is to always provide restorative dentistry services that look and feel like your natural teeth, your smile improvements will be virtually undetectable.
We provide the following restorative offerings at our Cedar Rapids dental office:
Dental crowns are used to repair damaged, misshapen, or broken teeth that remain otherwise healthy. To provide protection and stability, the crown fits right over the original tooth. Our dentists might use a dental bridge to fill the gap left by a single missing tooth, and the dental crown procedure can also be used for chipped tooth repair. You’ll be left with long-lasting corrections for a complete smile and a natural bite!
Our dental crowns are lab-fabricated with the following durable materials:
- All Ceramic
Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings
For every filling procedure, Dr. Zirker or Dr. Crippes will color-match their state-of-the-art dental filling material to blend perfectly with the appearance of your teeth. No one will be able to tell that you’ve had a cavity or white fillings!
At River Ridge Dental, we use the powers of dental bonding to beautify and fortify parts of the tooth that are missing. With expertly shade-matched, tooth-colored materials that are similar to white fillings, Dr. Zirker or Dr. Crippes will cover chips and fill in gaps in the teeth. For many patients, numbing or adjusting the tooth isn’t even necessary–that’s how comfortable and non-invasive this procedure can be.
The most common and most affordable way to replace a missing tooth is a dental bridge. As its name suggests, a dental bridge connects the teeth directly adjacent to the missing tooth with a fused “bridge” called a pontic, which is a false tooth. At River Ridge Dental, we offer traditional bridges, as well as those that are permanently fixed to the mouth using dental implants.
Are you missing any teeth? If you are, then River Ridge Dental has a solution for you — whether you're missing a single tooth or many! No matter your needs may be, our dentists specialize in permanent tooth restoration using dental implants.
Dental implants offer long-lasting and natural-looking results by using titanium posts implanted into the jawbone where luminous crowns can then be attached. With their secure fit, dental implants stay in place without any special adhesives, and there aren’t any restrictions on what foods patients can or cannot eat. These restorations also promote growth in the jaw bone, which means they generally serve as a healthier alternative to dentures or bridges.
At our Cedar Rapids, IA dentist office, we offer All-on-4® Dental Implants. These are a permanent solution to a full mouth of new teeth. You take care of them just the same as you would treat your natural teeth, flossing, brushing, talking, eating, and chewing normally.
We also offer Implant-Supported Dentures and Overdentures, which can work for some of our patients, depending on their particular needs. These attach to implants and are removable, snapping in and out of place.
And as a middle-ground, Hybrid Implants are just what they sound like–a more cost-effective mix between implants and dentures.
No matter what your needs are, our dentists will work with you to create an effective, unique solution that works for you.
Removable dentures can be a good option for patients whether they need all of their teeth replaced, or just a few. Dentures and partial dentures are cost-effective and aesthetically pleasing methods of filling gaps left by missing teeth. Regardless of how big the gaps are and how many you have, we’ll custom-craft a dentures solution that seamlessly fits your needs and leaves you feeling confident in your smile.
We offer the following removable dentures:
