If your dentist finds a cavity, they will drill out the decayed tooth matter and fill the resulting hole with composite resin. Dental fillings are best for small cavities that don’t compromise the structural integrity of the tooth. The sooner our Holland family dentist at Macatawa Smiles is able to detect a cavity, the smaller the tooth filling. Click here to learn more about our dental filling treatments.
Like the name suggests, dental bridges “bridge” the gap in your smile after losing a tooth. A dental bridge is a dental restoration that contains a false tooth with a crown on both sides to anchor it into place. To be a candidate for dental bridges, you will need healthy natural teeth or implants on both sides of the gap. Click here to learn more about our dental bridge treatments.
A dental implant is a titanium rod inserted into your jawbone that acts much like a natural tooth root would to support an abutment and crown. If you have recently lost a tooth, you may want to ask your dentist if you are a candidate for dental implants. Click here to learn more about our dental implant treatments.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are removable oral appliances that give you the appearance and function of natural teeth. After significant tooth loss, our dentist may recommend dentures so you can continue to eat and speak normally. Many of our patients who have experienced tooth loss report improved self-esteem after getting dentures. Click here to learn more about our full and partial denture treatments.
Root Canal Therapy
When an oral infection is deep enough to penetrate the pulp (living tissue) inside your tooth, you’ll need root canal therapy. A root canal is often a last-resort effort to save a tooth after significant tooth decay or traumatic dental injury. You may also need root canal therapy for a tooth made fragile from too many dental procedures. If you have a severe toothache, please do not hesitate to call our Holland root canal dentist.

Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the third molars that don’t erupt through the gum line until your late teens to early twenties. Our dentist takes dental X-rays to predict the trajectory of your wisdom teeth before they come through the gum line so they can determine whether you would benefit from wisdom teeth removal.
