Dental Fillings & Restorations
If you have outdated silver/mercury fillings, Lovett Dental can replace them with state-of-the-art tooth-colored restorations made of porcelain or a composite resin. These restorations can provide an aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional fillings, while also add strength to weakened teeth. Tooth restorations are bonded directly to the tooth, which provides a superior fit and keeps the tooth intact to prevent decay. If you’re ready to replace those unsightly metal fillings, meet with one of our dentists about replacing your old fillings.
As we age, our teeth naturally begin to wear down. This is especially the surface of our rear molars. To keep your teeth protected from this natural wear, Lovett’s Houston dentists can use a simple dental procedure called dental sealant. Dental sealant is a tooth-colored plastic or acrylic material that is placed over the surface of the tooth, typically a permanent molar. The sealant is designed to fill pits or cracks in the surface of the tooth, sealing them from further tooth decay. Lovett can perform this cosmetic procedure at any of our Texas dentist offices, so if you’re ready to protect your smile, schedule an appointment with any of our offices.
One inevitable truth that that we all must face at some point in our lives is that our teeth are imperfect. Even with the best of care, there may come a time when we must turn to dentures to replace our natural teeth. The dentists at Lovett provide several denture options to patients. Dentures can be designed in two separate ways: conventional and immediate. Conventional dentures are made 8-12 weeks after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has begun to heal, while immediate dentures are made in advance and the gum tissue heals under the dentures. To talk to one of our experienced dentists about which option is right for you, simply find the nearest Lovett Dental office and make an appointment.
If your teeth have slowly been worn down with the wear and tear of every day life, you can rest easy because at Lovett Dental, you can restore your smile with a dental bridge. Many people lose a tooth (or teeth) and a dental bridge allows them to complete their smile again. Bridges can be permanently attached or removable, depending on your unique smile. As with all of our procedures, at Lovett Dental, each of our locations are fully equipped to perform both cosmetic and general dentistry procedures in Houston and the surrounding areas. Don’t let a missing tooth keep you from smiling, schedule a consultation with a cosmetic dentist at Lovett Dental and restore your smile and your confidence.
The days of metal fillings and crowns have long since passed. If you still have an old metal filling or crown, it may be time to replace it with a porcelain crown. Crowns can be used as a solution to many dental problems including disease and accidental damage to a tooth. Newer porcelain crowns are durable alternatives to older metal fillings and can last 20-30 years. Crowns are placed over the tooth and are a designed to look like a natural tooth. At the hands of a skilled cosmetic dentist in Houston, a porcelain crown will blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.
In situations of severe tooth decay, disease, or impaction, a tooth extraction may become necessary. At Lovett Dental, we do our best to ensure a pain-free experience for all of our patients. Our dentists will work with you to ensure that your procedure is as comfortable as possible through local anesthetics and other sedation techniques. If you suffer from dental phobias, talk with our dentists to find ways to ease your anxieties.
Dental bonding is a procedure where a plastic resign is applied to a tooth to repair chipped or decayed teeth. Bonding is used as an alternative to veneers in some cases. Bonding can be used to improve your smile with your natural teeth by closing the space between teeth or making teeth look longer. Unlike veneers, dental bonding can improve your smile in just a single office visit, so schedule an appointment now.

Inlays & Onlays
Dental inlays and onlays are similar to fillings and consist of a substance (traditionally gold, but increasingly made with porcelain) which is bonded to a damaged area of your tooth. While an inlay is used on the tooth cusp, an onlay is a larger reconstruction that encompasses the cusp of the tooth. Both inlays and onlays require two appointments, so be sure to plan accordingly.
