A full-mouth reconstruction is a personalized treatment plan designed to restore the health, appearance, and strength of all of the teeth at the same time. It’s normally recommended for patients who have several dental issues, including numerous cracked, chipped, missing, and decayed teeth.
Dr. Pugh has spent many years handling complex dental needs just like this at a volume that most dentists never experience in their lifestyle. Just as importantly, she and her team approach each case with genuine compassion. We understand that seeking out care for these types of issues can feel intimidating and maybe even embarrassing. Rest assured that we are here to listen, to support you, and to make your goals for a revitalized smile a reality. The results will be fully custom and built to last, guaranteed.
Cosmetic Dentistry for Seniors
Many seniors come to see us right after they retire and tell us they’ve always wanted to enhance their smile, but they’ve never had the time before now. Well, we’re going to make it worth the wait! Our bevvy of cosmetic procedures can improve every aspect of the teeth you can imagine, including the color, size, spacing, and shape. With us, our cosmetic work isn’t designed to give someone a fluorescent, fake-looking smile, but rather the absolute best version of their own natural smile, creating a gorgeous result that captures attention for all the right reasons.
Dentures & Partials
Do your missing teeth cause you to think twice before every bite of food? Tired of constantly having to adjust your old denture? Worried that it will just fall out unexpectedly? These are all common concerns, and we can thankfully put them to rest with one of our custom-made dentures. Our dentures are personally fit for each patient and made only using the highest quality materials so they both look natural and can be trusted to stand the test of time. We offer both partial dentures that can fit seamlessly between any remaining teeth as well as full dentures that can bring back an entire row at once.
Ready to get the last tooth replacement you’ll ever need? In addition to being the next best thing to real teeth when it comes to strength and appearance, dental implants are also incredibly durable, having an average lifespan of 30+ years (which is multiple times longer compared to traditional bridges and dentures). Our team is able to handle the entire implant procedure from start to finish to make rebuilding the smile as comfortable and convenient as possible, and we only use the best materials so a successful outcome is guaranteed.
Dental Crowns & Bridges
We can place dental crowns over severely decayed and broken teeth to help them look and feel like new again, plus they can help a patient avoid the need for an extraction. Made of 100% dental porcelain, our crowns are painstakingly shaped and shaded to perfectly match the rest of the teeth. They can also be used to support a dental bridge to quickly replace one to three missing teeth in a row.
Dental Checkups & Cleanings for Seniors
Attending regular checkups and cleanings is important for all ages, especially seniors. During these gentle appointments, we’ll remove all plaque and tartar from the teeth and try to pinpoint any potential issues before they cause pain or lasting damage, allowing us to take care of them as compassionately and affordably as possible.
