Hickory Hills Dental Care is committed to excellence in the field of Dentistry. In the 20+ years I have practiced dentistry, I am never ceasing to be amazed at the progress our field has made. We, in the field of dentistry, are constantly discussing higher levels of care and implementing new ways of bringing these advancements home to you. Our purpose is to help you set goals to improve your health, appearance, and self-esteem. We really are in an exciting position! All of the technology and knowledge available will not help us care for people alone.
All of your teeth play an important role in speaking, chewing and in maintaining proper alignment of other teeth. Tooth loss doesn't necessarily have to occur as you age, but if you do lose teeth, they must be replaced to maintain proper function of your mouth. Fortunately, there are options for correcting tooth loss. When a single dental implant is not an option,a bridge attaches artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth, called abutment teeth. Bridges are a non-removable restoration.
Most dentistry looks like dentistry. Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth. Where damage to a person's teeth is extreme and apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain "pasted on gold" crowns to make the smile appear "as new". This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite.
