Dental Crowns to Restore Weakened Teeth

Our teeth are important to our overall health. It is important to keep them healthy and present for our lifetime. When a tooth becomes decayed or damaged, it is able to be saved from extraction if it is properly cared for. At Bayberry Dental Care in Tinley Park, IL, we utilize dental crowns to strengthen and protect damaged teeth with intact roots.

When a root is still intact, the tooth is able to function healthfully as long as any decay is removed and the crown is strengthened. Our dental crowns are like caps that go on top of a weakened tooth to give it new life.

A dental crown can be made of metal, porcelain fused to metal, or full porcelain. The options with porcelain are able to look and feel just like a normal tooth. They are colored to blend right in with the rest of the teeth, so your smile will look great again.

A tooth is prepared for a dental crown by being reshaped. The edges are shaped so that the crown can be placed on top. We take impressions of the reshaped tooth and the area around it so a dental laboratory can create a crown that fits the area perfectly. A temporary crown will be worn while the permanent one is being created. When ready, the permanent one is then cemented into place.

If you have a decayed or damaged tooth, do not delay treatment. Many teeth can be saved from extraction through dental crowns. To schedule with Bayberry Dental Care in our Tinley Park, IL office, call us at (708) 802-8300. For more information, visit our website,

Veneers Create a Brand-New Smile

Nothing is better than walking into a room with a smile you are confident about. Here at Bayberry Dental Care in Tinley Park, IL, we want our patients to be able to put their best smile forward. We offer veneers to our patients who want a brand-new smile whether they have many aesthetic dental issues or just a couple of insecurities.

Veneers are able to completely change the look of one’s smile without major dental work like surgery. Veneers are shells that are simply bonded to the front of your existing teeth. They still allow you to use your teeth normally, so you can still eat all the foods you love. They are permanently bonded to your teeth, so you also do not need to worry about taking them out or cleaning underneath them.

Veneers are great for those who are unhappy with the look of gaps, misaligned teeth, cracks, discolored teeth, and more. They are made of a very thin ceramic and they are custom made to look natural for your smile. They are fit exactly to your smile, so the function and comfort of your teeth remain the same.

If you are looking for a completely new look, dental veneers can help you achieve a dazzling smile. To schedule an appointment with us in our Tinley Park, IL dental practice, give us a call at (708) 802-8300. For more information, visit our Bayberry Dental Care website,

Dental Implants for Permanent Replacement

Missing teeth can cause problems with eating and speaking, and a loss of confidence. Replace your missing teeth with an option that can last a lifetime. Here at Bayberry Dental Care in Tinley Park, IL we offer our patients with missing teeth dental implants.

Dental implants are a great option for patients who would like to replace a missing tooth once and for all. With good care, dental implants are able to last a lifetime. They are inserted into the area and it will then bond with your natural bone. The crown placed on top is able to look and feel just like the rest of your natural teeth, too, so the replacement will be indistinguishable in your smile.

The surgeon will place the implant post into your bone. This bonding process will take a few months, so a temporary crown will be placed on top for protection and normal use. Meanwhile, a dental laboratory will be creating a custom crown for you. When the healing is finished, an abutment will be placed onto the implant to serve as the base of the new tooth and the permanent crown is cemented into place.

Dental implants will let you smile and laugh with confidence again. You will not need to worry about difficulty eating or injuring your gums. The best part is that it will never need to be replaced when it is properly cared for. You can care for it just like you would care for a natural tooth.

To schedule your implant consultation with Bayberry Dental Care of Tinley Park, IL, call our office at (708) 802-8300. For more information, visit our website,
