Restorative Dentistry

Keeping your teeth strong and healthy is always our goal at John C. Reimers, D.D.S. in Beaumont, Texas. Dr. John Reimers is highly trained in all aspects of reconstructive and restorative dentistry. If the condition of your teeth has been compromised due to an infection or decay, Dr. Reimers can offer many different treatment options to rebuild and restore the health and beauty of your smile. Our restorative procedures include:

Tooth Colored Restoration

Dr. Reimers’ natural-look fillings will match the color of your teeth. He can also correct chips and flaws with cosmetic bonding.

Complete & Partial Dentures

A denture is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue.  They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile. There are two types of dentures - complete and partial dentures.  Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.  A Partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it helps prevent other teeth from shifting. Dentures are very durable appliances and will last many years, but may have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear. You can have dentures that look like natural teeth, dentures that are so secure and look so real only you and Dr. Reimers will know you wear them.

Implant Supported Crowns

If your teeth are becoming weak or are slowly deteriorating, Dr. Reimers can help fix your weakened or damaged teeth by placing a crown – an artificial tooth made of porcelain – around a damaged tooth.

Implant Supported Dentures

If you have missing teeth, and you’ve been frustrated by your traditional dentures, there is a leading-edge solution called implant-supported dentures. Comfort, stability, and a secure fit are just a few of the many benefits of implant-supported dentures. If you struggle with failing dentures, messy adhesives, and the embarrassment of an unnatural-looking smile, Dr. Reimers can help. 

Porcelain Fixed Partial Dentures (Bridges)

If you’re missing one or more teeth, you may notice a difference in chewing and speaking. Bridges can help restore your smile. Sometimes called a fixed partial denture, a bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth and literally “bridges” the gap where one or more teeth used to be. Bridges can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, zirconia or a combination of these materials and are attached to surrounding teeth for support. Unlike a removable bridge, which you can take out and clean, a fixed bridge can only be removed by a dentist.

Root Canals

Your teeth are meant to last a lifetime. Years ago, diseased or injured teeth were usually pulled. But today, a tooth can often be saved through root canal (endodontic) treatment. A root canal procedure involves the removal of a nerve from the tooth. Each tooth has at least one nerve that runs through the tooth and connects to the gum. The nerve is the life source of the tooth. If the nerve becomes infected or exposed (due to decay or structural damage), it can be very painful. A root canal removes the nerve and fills the nerve cavity with composite material. While the removal of the nerve relieves the patient of pain, it also removes the life source of the tooth. A tooth that has a root canal done on it almost always needs a crown to reinforce the strength of the tooth.
