Enjoy Your Complete Smile Again
Teeth are some of the strongest bones in your body. Considering all the wear and tear they go through over time, it's no wonder that they can break, crack, or chip. Your teeth are also susceptible to gum disease and injury. In fact, many of our patients come to us with one or more of these obstacles standing in the way of their overall oral health. If any of these issues describe your situation, call us to schedule a comprehensive evaluation with Dr. Stansbury. He'll put his skill and experience in restoring teeth and renewing smiles to work for you with restorative dentistry at our Tyler, TX dental office.

Dental crowns are durable caps that are placed over teeth that are damaged or decayed. This treatment offers an additional layer of protection as well as restores the strength, appearance, and function of pearly whites. They can be commonly used in combination with several other replacement options, such as bridges and dental implants. By reshaping your tooth enamel to make room for these caps, you can be sure to enjoy a reliable, durable, and seamless restoration with dental crowns!
We provide dental bridges to replace one or more consecutive teeth in a single arch. The restoration consists of three to four “pontics” with a crown on either side being anchored by healthy existing teeth. There are two different types of dental bridges available, a traditional bridge – which requires the reshaping of your natural teeth to cement the restoration into place, and an implant bridge, which is supported by surgically-placed dental implants. With either option, you can expect comfort, stability, and a natural-looking finish!
Tooth-colored fillings are basically the perfect solution for small cavities. Unlike traditional amalgam fillings, they can be specially shaded to match a patient’s enamel color, so when they’re placed into the mouth, they become practically invisible. They do not contain any metals as well, which means that they don’t cause a tooth to develop sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures. Better yet, Dr. Stansbury can place one in just one quick, painless appointment.
Root Canal Therapy
When a single tooth is experiencing a lot of pain or sensitivity, the cause is usually that the delicate internal nerve has developed an infection. In order to save the tooth and relieve the pain, we may need to perform root canal therapy. Despite its somewhat dubious reputation, modern-day root canals are actually very comfortable and nothing to fear. After numbing a patient, Dr. Stansbury will simply remove the infected tissue, clean the inside of the tooth, and fill it to replace the lost structure. At a follow-up appointment, he’ll fully rebuild the tooth using a custom-made dental crown.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
Are you unable to chew your favorite foods or smile confidently because of numerous missing teeth? Dentures have provided a trusted solution to this problem for decades, and you can have one completely custom-made by Dr. Stansbury. Using the latest techniques and materials, he can create a prosthetic that fits comfortably, looks natural, and can be trusted to stand the test of time. We offer both traditional removable dentures as well as state-of-the-art implant-retained dentures.
Whether you are missing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or all of them, dental implants are the absolute best way to close the gaps in your smile. They are the only treatment that actually restores both the root and crown of a tooth, creating a result that is virtually indistinguishable from nature. With regular oral hygiene, they can also be trusted to last for 30 years or more. If you’re ready to get your full smile back, dental implants can help you do it.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
Some patients come to us with multiple or complex oral health problems that simply cannot be addressed by a single restorative service. If that is true of you, come visit our compassionate team. After we evaluate your situation, we might recommend that you undergo full mouth reconstruction. This customized treatment plan can use multiple treatments that work together to restore your oral health, function, and appearance. It is the most efficient way to rebuild a strong and confident smile!
