How Can Dr. Barrilleaux Improve Your Smile?
Dr. Barrilleaux is dedicated to excellence and uses her expertise as a prosthodontist to preserve and restore patients’ teeth and improve their dental health and overall health. In particular, as a Prosthodontist, she focuses on tooth restoration and can help rebuild your mouth to full functionality. This way your teeth look good and work how they are supposed to.
Prosthodontists often deal with dental issues surrounding missing teeth. This means that they frequently perform tooth reconstruction. Teeth undergo a lot of damage as we go through our lives. Tooth decay and trauma are common and might require a root canal by another specialist.
A Prosthodontist helps with the reconstruction process by placing crowns and caps on the treated tooth. Dr. Barrilleaux is skilled with crown implants and can help you finish reconstructing your teeth with this type of implant and other reconstructive options.
In short, there are many ways that Dr. Barrilleaux can help improve your smile and dental health. All-on-4 dental implants, one of the most advanced dental treatments, are available to her patients for full mouth reconstruction, as well.
You can also choose to have cosmetic work done on a single tooth or multiple teeth. This includes changing the shape of the tooth, closing gaps between teeth, improving the color and appearance of teeth, and better aligning the mouth for function.
Dentures, bridges, and many more treatment options are also available to patients to solve their dental problems. Dr. Barrilleaux would be happy to talk about your choices when you come in for your appointment.
