Laying the Groundwork for Future Oral Health

Even patients who consult with Dr. Lee for a root canal treatment or tooth prosthetics need proper preventive care to help maintain the health of their remaining teeth as well as their gums. While Dr. Lee has obtained advanced training to restore decayed teeth and replace missing teeth, preventive dentistry is a critical part of his job. He employs a meticulous professional cleaning process to make teeth and gums inhospitable to plaque and oral bacteria, as well as thorough examinations to detect problems such as periodontal disease, tooth decay, and oral cancer. He additionally provides fluoride treatments and dental sealants to patients with a high risk of cavities.

Restoring Damaged or Decayed Teeth

For cases of tooth decay, breakage, or fracture, Dr. Lee can expertly restore your teeth to full function with the most appropriate method. Small to moderate cavities or chips can be repaired with esthetically-pleasing fillings made from composite resin, which can be shade matched to your natural teeth. For larger cavities or deep tooth fractures, all-ceramic crowns can cover and strengthen your tooth, restoring its function and blending in perfectly with your natural teeth. If tooth damage or decay has infiltrated the tooth pulp, which is the center of the tooth that houses nourishing blood vessels and nerves, Dr. Lee will perform a root canal treatment. Having studied root canal therapy extensively in his native South Korea before coming to the US, Dr. Lee will perform this procedure in a way that safely and comfortably removes the infection from the center of your tooth and protects it from further harm.

Esthetically-Pleasing Tooth Replacement

In some cases, tooth-saving measures such as root canal treatment aren’t viable options, and patients lose teeth. Dr. Lee offers the best solutions for your tooth replacement needs. After a comprehensive evaluation of your unique situation, your Coppell prosthodontist will recommend one of four options. A fixed bridge is a prosthetic that replaces one or more adjacent teeth and is anchored into the mouth with crowns attached to the teeth on either end of the gap. A complete denture is a removable prosthetic that can replace all of the teeth in a dental arch, and a partial denture can replace one or more missing teeth, even if they are not adjacent. The gold standard of tooth replacement is dental implants, which consist of artificial tooth roots inserted into the jawbone and dental restorations placed on top of them. Dental implants provide a stable and natural look and feel, allowing you to function just as you would with your natural teeth.

Transforming Healthy Smiles into Beautiful Smiles

While restoring your mouth to optimal health and function is Dr. Lee’s main concern, he also keeps esthetics in mind with every procedure he performs. Working with the best labs and dental ceramists available, all of his crowns, bridges, and dentures are natural looking as well as functional. Even if you do not need restorative or prosthetic dentistry, Dr. Lee is skilled in the art and science of cosmetic dentistry and offers teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental bonding, and tooth contouring to help you achieve the attractive smile you deserve.
