Dental Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns are individual restorations that are designed to cover the visible structure of a single tooth. This treatment option is very versatile and can provide significant improvements in a number of situations, including:
- When a tooth has become decayed to the point that a tooth-colored filling cannot sufficiently treat it.
- When a tooth has suffered a physical injury.
- When a tooth has become weakened and is in need of additional support to prevent breakage.
- When a tooth is misshapen and requires cosmetic correction.
Dental crowns can also be vital components of dental implant and root canal therapy procedures, restoring the natural shape and strength of the treated tooth. Additionally, they’re used in conjunction with dental bridges, which replace multiple, consecutive missing teeth in a row for patients who’d like a sturdier reconstructive option than traditional dentures.
Is speed a priority for you when pursuing restorative treatment? Dr. Lee can provide a worthwhile solution. CEREC one-visit crowns are available for patients from Lavonia, GA and surrounding areas!
Many older patients are surely familiar with the dark-colored amalgam fillings that were once very common when it came to treating cavities; in fact, your smile may still have a few in places. Today, Dr. Lee is proud to offer a much-improved alternative with tooth-colored materials. Made from composite resin, your new filling at Lee Dental Group will be shaded to match your natural enamel and precisely sculpted into place for a seamless addition. In addition to their cosmetic qualities, tooth-colored fillings also allow our team to preserve more of your remaining tooth structure and help you avoid the significant temperature sensitivity caused by dental metals.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
If you’ve lost a significant number of teeth and are in need of a reliable, cost-effective replacement, a custom-made denture from Dr. Lee could be the right choice for you. Our practice offers both traditional full and partial prosthetics (designed to be removable for separate storage and cleaning) and implant-retained models for added permanence and stability. We can help you determine which option is right for your needs and budget during your initial appointment here in Hartwell.
Root Canal Therapy
Patients from Lavonia, GA and surrounding areas who are suffering from badly damaged/decayed teeth may be able to preserve their natural smile with the help of root canal therapy. This procedure involves the removal of diseased pulp from the inner portion of the suffering tooth; Dr. Lee will then replace it with a safe, biocompatible material before sealing the area and restoring its natural shape and strength with a custom dental crown. Extraction isn’t the only option!
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Are any of the following symptoms familiar to you?
- Loud, chronic snoring.
- Excessive feelings of fatigue and exhaustion in the morning, even if you went to bed early the night before.
- Constant headaches and instances of sore throat, especially early in the day.
- Difficulty with concentrating and/or remembering information.
- Taking frequent trips to the bathroom throughout the night.
If so, you may be struggling with obstructive sleep apnea, a potentially dangerous health condition that involves constant pauses in breathing throughout the night because of a blocked airway, resulting in fractured sleep. Many patients aren’t aware that a dentist can help provide lasting relief from sleep apnea – but it’s true! If you’ve been diagnosed by your physician or a sleep specialist, reach out to our team here at Lee Dental Group. We offer customized, comfortable oral appliances that can readjust the patient’s jaw and maintain a clear airway throughout the night. Dr. Lee’s goal is to help you enjoy the uninterrupted rest you deserve.
