What Services Does Our Dentist Offer?
You may be surprised to learn just how much we are able to do for you and your smile.
While most people know that they should visit our Crystal, MN, dentist Dr. Kimberlee Murphy twice a year for routine cleanings and exams, most people forget that they can also turn to their dentist for a variety of other treatments and services including:
If you are missing one or more teeth and you really want a restoration that is as close to a real tooth as possible then look no further than dental implants. Implants are metal posts that are completely biocompatible, meaning that your mouth won’t reject the restoration.
In fact, the jawbone will act as if the implant is a natural structure and meld and heal around the implant to make it a permanent structure from which to support a dental crown or even a full set of dentures, depending on the extent of your tooth loss.
Root Canal Therapy
If you are dealing with a damaged or infected tooth then our Crystal, MN, general dentist may have recommended a root canal treatment in order to remove the dental pulp. When bacteria or damage has affected a dental pulp, the only option is to remove it and clean out the inside of the tooth to prevent the infection from spreading. In many cases, a root canal can actually save the tooth from needing to be extracted in the future.
Our back teeth are often more prone to decay because there are so many little grooves on the chewing surfaces of these teeth that it can be challenging to thoroughly get into all those nooks and crannies with your toothbrush. Whether you are a child or an adult who is at risk for decay, these tooth-colored plastic coatings could help seal up the chewing surfaces of your back teeth and prevent food and bacteria from getting trapped.
If you are tired of yellow, stained teeth plaguing you (and at-home whitening toothpastes just aren’t doing the trick) then our in-office system has the results you’ve been looking for. Most people are able to get the whiter smile they want in just one whitening session. Of course, if you want to whiten your smile from the convenience of your own home we can also offer you our powerful at-home whitening system.
Whether you have questions about the different dental services that Dr. Murphy has to offer or you want to find out which treatment is the right approach to improving your smile, you know you can always call our Crystal, MN, dental office to book a consultation. Let us help you get the smile you’ve always wanted.
