Our goal is to restore teeth to their natural form and function, and help patients keep their natural teeth for their lifetime.
We want to get patients’ teeth to fit together well and prevent them from developing irregular bite patterns. Our goal is to restore teeth to their natural form and function, and help patients keep their natural teeth for their lifetime. Because of this, Dr. Miller uses the most conservative treatments. For example, he minimizes tooth reductions by using inlays and onlays when possible. He also creates beautiful smiles by minimally preparing the front teeth for veneers.
The aesthetics of dental treatment have improved dramatically, thanks to advancements in technology. Restorations can be made of tooth-colored materials that enable us to repair decayed or damaged teeth in a manner that blends in with your other teeth. Many people choose tooth-colored fillings to replace cracked or loose silver fillings during a regular visit to the dentist. Gastonia dentist Dr. Miller also offers other restorative materials. Dr. Miller is proud of the fact that many treatments can be done very conservatively, so as to minimize the amount of tooth structure removed.
When a tooth’s structure has been compromised due to injury or severe decay, a tooth-shaped covering, called a crown, is needed to restore strength and eliminate discomfort or pain. The crown can be made of metal, gold, ceramic or porcelain. The crown procedure consists of removal of tooth decay, taking exact measurements of the tooth and creating a crown that fits over the tooth, protecting and strengthening the remaining tooth structure and reinforcing the jaw.
