Repair Damage & Smile Again
Restorative Dentist in Sunbury
Damaged teeth can be detrimental to your dental and overall health, as well as your emotional well-being. Whether you have a small cavity that is causing pain and keeping you from enjoying your favorite foods, or you have more extensive issues like an infected or knocked-out tooth, we can help! We offer a wide range of restorative treatments to meet the needs of every patient and give you your smile back.
At Shine Dental, we use composite fillings to treat cavities. Composite fillings are made out of a special type of dental resin, and they can be made to match perfectly with your tooth color. They provide a very strong, durable hold, and they look and feel just like a natural part of your tooth. If you have a small cavity, fillings are the best way to stop the decay and protect your tooth’s structure from further damage.
Repair Infected Teeth
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is used to restore infected teeth. Tooth infections can be incredibly painful, and, if left untreated, they can cause many other issues with your dental and overall health. During treatment, a small hole is made in your tooth. Then, the infected nerve and blood supply are removed and the inside of your tooth is disinfected. Once all the damaged tooth material is removed, the empty space is filled with an inert material and protected with a filling or crown.

Restore Damaged Teeth
custom-Made Dental Crowns
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped prosthetic which helps to restore a damaged tooth and prevent it from breaking. After any damaged enamel and tooth material are removed, your tooth will be shaped to prepare it to support a crown. A custom crown can be made out of porcelain, zirconia, or gold and crafted to look just like your natural tooth. Next, it is permanently attached to your remaining tooth structure to cover it up all the way down to the gum line. Our dental crowns look and feel just like a natural tooth.
The Benefits Of
Dental Crowns & bridges
Dental crowns are long-lasting, with a lifespan of 15+ years. They also look and feel totally natural, restoring both the function and aesthetics of your smile. Since crowns cover your whole tooth all the way down to the gum line, a crown is often the best way to prevent further complications with a damaged or infected tooth.
Restore Missing Teeth
Partial & Full Dentures
Partial dentures can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. They consist of a set of false teeth attached to a metal and plastic framework, and they are designed to attach to your remaining healthy teeth. Full dentures, on the other hand, replace an entire arch of missing teeth. They are placed directly on your gums or can be held in place using dental implants, and require the removal of all your remaining teeth. If you think dentures may be right for you, call us today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Miller and discuss your options!
