At Mind Your Mouth, we make a conscious effort to use the latest dental technology and techniques to help improve each of our patients’ smiles. These include CEREC® in-house restorations crafted from strong zirconia as well as biocompatible cavity fillings that are durable and gentle on your gums. To learn more about how we can improve the health and function of damaged teeth and keep your oral health on the right track, don’t hesitate to contact us today for restorative dentistry in South Portland, ME.
In the past, and sometimes even still today, dentists used a metal compound known as amalgam to fill cavities and prevent further decay. Even though they protected teeth, they caused a host of other issues in patients, including discolored teeth, dental sensitivity, and even gum discoloration. At Mind Your Mouth, we use safe, durable, and highly effective composite resin to fill cavities. We custom-select the shade of the biocompatible resin to match your enamel as well, making the filling virtually unnoticeable when you smile and laugh.
Even patients who are diligent about brushing and flossing daily can experience an accident or problem that can affect the health of a tooth. If you have a tooth that’s severely decayed or broken, we offer customized dental crowns that fit over the structure located above the gumline to protect and strengthen teeth. Once placed, a dental crown can ensure that your tooth continues to comfortably function as it normally does and doesn’t sustain additional damage.

If you’re missing a series of consecutive teeth along an arch, we can help restore your smile with the use of our customized dental bridges. These restorations consist of two dental crowns that are located at the ends of free-standing replacement teeth called pontics. The crowns are attached to your natural teeth on either side of the gap in your smile to literally bridge the area and provide you with a completed and functional arch of teeth.

If you’re missing several or all of your teeth along an arch, this issue has likely impacted your daily life, such as what types of food you eat and how often you’re willing to go to social gatherings. At Mind Your Mouth, we’re dedicated to improving every facet of your life so you can live one that’s healthy and fulfilling. One way we do this is by offering full and partial customized dentures that are custom-made for your mouth. They’re made from a gum-colored acrylic base as well as naturally shaded ceramic teeth so they look completely natural.
