Restorative Dentistry and Therapeutic Services

We offer a wide variety of restorative dentistry and services for all your dental needs, such as:

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

It is used in conjunction with local anesthesia during restorative dentistry treatments.

Nitrous leaves the system within about 5 minutes after administration is discontinued, so patients can feel right back to their normal self as soon as treatment is completed.

Oral Sedation Dentistry

Sometimes dental care needs to be completed, but the patient is too anxious or unable to sit through a treatment appointment. For these patients we recommend utilizing oral conscious sedation to help them sleep through the procedure and avoid any negative impact surrounding their care. Most oral sedation cases are scheduled early in the morning, and the medication is taken 30-60 minutes prior to the scheduled treatment; it will wear off a few hours later, allowing patients to be escorted home by a friend or family member after their care is completed. Most patients can answer yes-or-no questions and respond to basic instructions, but they likely won’t remember a thing.

Composite Tooth Fillings

White “tooth colored” composite fillings require less tooth preparation, bond directly to enamel, and blend in with the natural color of the teeth. Implementing composite fillings into our restorative dentistry care plans help patients feel confident about their smile and keep their teeth as healthy as possible.

Tooth colored fillings are a great alternative to metal fillings, and are mercury free.

Dental Crowns & Dentures

If a cavity extends too far into a tooth, then there may not be enough healthy enamel to support a filling. In this case, protecting the entire tooth with a dental crown is necessary. Crowns cover the entire tooth and restore it to natural function and stability, so that it can last as long as it was designed to. Cosmetic tooth-colored dental crowns are available!

Removable full and partial dentures are an economical way to replace several or all of your missing teeth. The prosthesis is made of acrylic and stays in place through suction or by snapping onto adjacent teeth. By choosing to have dentures made, patients can regain the full function of their mouths and enjoy eating again.

Root Canal Treatments

Should the nerve of a tooth become traumatized, damaged, or infected from decay, the tooth may hurt or abscess. Unfortunately, dental abscesses can result in emergency hospitalizations, damage to developing teeth, and be extremely painful. By performing therapeutic pulpotomies in children, and root canal (endodontic) therapy in adults, we can eliminate infection risks and save the tooth at the same time. All pulp treatments will also be followed by a restoration such as a crown.

Space Maintainers and Orthodontic Intervention

Losing teeth prematurely due to accidents or cavities can disrupt the natural eruption patterns in the mouth. Placing a space maintainer in the area where a tooth is lost can prevent nearby teeth from shifting into place and causing complications like crowding or crooked teeth. Our orthodontic intervention plans help patients avoid serious orthodontic needs later on, by encouraging healthy orofacial growth patterns.

Tooth Extractions

Patient getting teeth examined as part of restorative dentistry therapy at Magic Smiles in Phoenix and Mesa.Although it’s our goal to always save teeth when possible, sometimes getting your tooth pulled is the only option available. Extractions are fairly simple procedures, and we ensure the ultimate comfort of our patients through the entire treatment.

After teeth have been extracted, we’ll also work with you to determine the type of tooth replacement plan that’s best for your needs.
