Same-Day Crowns

 

If you have experienced moderate to severe dental decay or trauma, we may suggest a dental crown. In the past, it required multiple appointments, messy impressions, and lots of fitting to complete a dental crown. Today, we are proud to offer same-day dental crowns in San Antonio, Texas.

 

What are Dental Crowns?

 

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that cover teeth to restore their health and vitality. Dr. Carolyn Walker, our skilled dentist, may suggest a dental crown to hold a broken tooth together, prevent a tooth from falling apart, anchor a dental bridge, or support a large filling or root canal treatment.

 

What are Same-Day Dental Crowns?

 

Same-day crowns are dental crowns that can be designed, created, and placed in just one visit to our dental office. We can do this with E4D technology, which uses a specialized machine that takes a block of porcelain perfectly matched to your smile, and forms your crown based on our exact measurements and specifications.

How do Same-Day Crowns Work?

After preparing your tooth through a gentle reshaping process, we will permanently cement the crown in place. We are excited to share the many benefits of same-day dental crowns with you, and we hope you will call Leon Springs Dental at 210-698-1010 today for more information. We look forward to restoring your smile!

 

White Dental Fillings

 

Our experienced dentist and team are proud to offer white dental fillings to deliver beautiful, natural-looking restorations in San Antonio, Texas, at Leon Springs Dental. If you want more information on white dental fillings, we encourage you to contact our dental office today at 210-698-1010. We would be happy to help you schedule your appointment while answering any questions you may have.

What are Dental Fillings?

 

Dental fillings are a common type of dental restoration used to treat cavities and other types of damage to your tooth enamel. Once the decay is removed from your tooth’s surface, small depressions and empty spaces need to be filled to restore the strength of your smile. In the past, there were many types of materials used for dental fillings, such as metal and gold.​

What are White Dental Fillings?

White fillings are made from a plastic known as composite resin. Composite resin can match your natural tooth color and bond with your original tooth structure for extra strength and durability. White fillings can be placed in just one visit to our dental office. Dr. Carolyn Walker is committed to using the latest dental technologies to improve and take care of the overall health of your smile.

Benefits of Dental Fillings

  • Durable

  • Nearly invisible

  • Can be placed in just one visit

 

Root Canal Therapy

 

Do you have severe tooth pain, especially when chewing or biting down? Have your gums swelled up in a particular area of your mouth? Then you may be facing extensive tooth decay or damage that requires root canal treatment, more commonly known as a root canal.

 

What is a Root Canal?

 

A root canal is an endodontic treatment developed to restore the strength and integrity of your inner tooth. Located in this delicate area are canals and dental pulp that are essential to the health of your smile. When decayed, an infection can form and eventually kill your tooth. Root canal treatment saves your smile and ensures your overall oral health.

 

How are Root Canals Done?

 

When you receive a root canal in San Antonio, Texas, your treatment begins with local anesthesia to numb your tooth and the surrounding area. Then, the tooth is opened, and all infected dental pulp is removed.

 

After cleaning your root canal system, a strong material, known as gutta-percha, is placed inside your tooth to restore it. Finally, a dental filling or dental crown is used to seal the tooth and complete the treatment.

Do You Think You Need a Root Canal?

If you are experiencing pain, we invite you to contact our accomplished dentist, Dr. Carolyn Walker, by calling Leon Springs Dental at 210-698-1010 to schedule your appointment to receive a complete diagnosis and treatment plan. We look forward to helping you with your smile!

 

Dentures and Partials

 

We understand that many of our patients who have experienced tooth loss are hesitant to commit to long treatments that require surgery. As another option, Dr. Carolyn Walker, our talented dentist, may suggest dentures in San Antonio, Texas.

What are Dentures?

 

Dentures are removable prosthetic teeth ideal for replacing most or all of a lost smile. We offer two different types of dentures at Leon Springs Dental: full dentures and partial dentures.

What is the Difference Between Full and Partial Dentures?

Full dentures are used to replace all of the teeth in your smile by using a gum-colored base to support your new teeth. This base fits snugly over your gums and is shaped like a horseshoe. We may suggest a denture adhesive to hold your full dentures in place.

 

On the other hand, partial dentures can be used to replace just one or a couple of teeth, requiring some of your natural smile to remain. Along with a base, partial dentures use metal frameworks or clasps to stay in place.

 

Why Choose Full or Partial Dentures?

 

Both full and partial dentures improve your oral health, self-confidence, and ability to eat and speak. If you are interested in replacing your teeth with dentures, we invite you to contact our dental office today by calling 210-698-1010 and scheduling a consultation with our dentist. We are excited to help rejuvenate your smile!

 

Dental Implants

 

Are you missing one or more teeth? Do you feel embarrassed to smile because of it? Then Dr. Carolyn Walker, our practiced dentist, may suggest dental implants as a solution.

 

What are Dental Implants?

 

Dental implants are a revolutionary way to replace teeth from root to crown. A surgical treatment, dental implants in San Antonio, Texas, can be used to replace just one tooth or the whole of your smile. After treatment, which generally spans several months, your smile will look natural and feel great.

 

How are Dental Implants Done?

 

To place dental implants, we will first surgically place a small metal post, made of titanium, into your jawbone where a tooth has been lost. A waiting period ensues as your gums heal and the post fuses to your bone structure, providing strength and stability.

 

Then, an abutment and dental restoration, usually a dental crown, bridge, or denture, are placed on top to complete the process. With dental implants, it will be like you never lost your tooth!

 

We will continue to monitor your smile as time goes on to ensure that your new teeth function properly.
