& Implant Dentistry
Your teeth have difficult jobs, facing extreme pressure and exposure to harmful bacteria every single day. That’s why so many people experience cavities, injuries, and other dental problems over the course of their lives. Even patients who brush and floss diligently may wind up in need of restorative care.
Whatever your personal situation is, Dr. Pointer has the time-tested skill, education, and comfortable approach needed to assist you with flying colors. Our team’s goal is to leave you with improvements that are highly personalized and of the highest quality so that you can enjoy them for many, many years to come. Please contact us today to schedule a first visit here in Fort Worth, TX.
A custom-made restoration from our practice can help patients recover strong, durable dental structure after experiencing injuries, advanced tooth decay, and even complete tooth loss. Crowns are designed to represent an individual tooth’s natural crown, fitting over the original surface in order to rebuild its ailing shape and protect what remains of the tooth from further damage.
Alternatively, Dr. Pointer may recommend a dental bridge to patients who need to replace missing teeth that appear consecutively. The bridge will be anchored over two adjacent natural teeth on either side of the gap so that it holds sturdily in place within your smile.
If the thought of treating your cavity with a dark, amalgam filling makes you feel dread, rest assured that Dr. Pointer now offers a much more pleasing alternative. Our composite resin fillings are highly lifelike, comfortable, conservative, and long-lasting. Once they’re in place within your smile, they’ll be very difficult to distinguish from natural tooth enamel.
Instead of having to wait for a new restoration to be slowly crafted over the course of multiple appointments, our patients can walk in with a hurting tooth and walk out with beautiful, permanent improvements that leave them smiling proudly. CEREC simplifies every stage of this process – from initial design to impressions to milling to placement – down to just one appointment.
If the tooth loss you’ve experienced is significant in nature, a modern denture may be the best way to regain your complete smile quickly and affordably. These prosthetics are a far cry from the clunky models of years ago, and Dr. Pointer will always take the time to ensure that your specific model fits securely and comfortably when worn. Full dentures, partial dentures, and even implant-retained dentures are all available at our Fort Worth practice.
Root canal therapy can become necessary if you have a tooth suffering from advanced infection that cannot be treated through other restorative methods. This procedure is highly effective and may be able to restore teeth that would otherwise need to be removed from the mouth entirely. Dr. Pointer will access the inner portion of the tooth, removing infected pulp and bacteria from within and replacing it with a safe, biocompatible substitute.
Although extracting natural teeth will never be Dr. Pointer’s first treatment recommendation for his patients, it is a service that sometimes proves necessary in dire circumstances. You can trust in our team to handle this process with your comfort and safety always at the forefront of our minds, and we can also start working with you right away on quality replacement options so that you don’t have to be without a complete, confident smile for very long.
