Restorative Dentistry for Monroe and Beyond

Dr. Irene Chasen Restores Your Smile!

At Chasen Smiles in Monroe, WA, Dr. Irene Chasen and her team consider preventing dental problems one of the most important things they do. By seeing patients every six months, they watch for early warning signs of common issues like gum disease and tooth decay. Proactive preventive measures ensure your teeth will last a lifetime. For example, regular fluoride treatments can strengthen tooth enamel and ward off decay.

At our restorative dental practice, we use the latest diagnostic technology to detect decay, cracks, and other issues in the earliest possible stages. Digital X-rays, for example, show Dr. Chasen interior structures not visible to the naked eye. The images can be magnified and manipulated for even further diagnostic benefits. Your six-month exams at our Monroe office include advanced diagnostics for early detection and prevention.

While most dental issues can easily be prevented or treated when caught early, sometimes the damage is done. Our restorative dentist in Monroe, WA, can use a variety of techniques and products to restore your smile to complete health and beauty. Dr. Chasen goes beyond teeth restorations, too. With custom nightguards, we help patients avoid the damage caused by nightly teeth grinding. Our custom athletic mouthguards protect athletes’ teeth and jaws on the playing field.

If your teeth have sustained damage, received root canal treatment, or have cavities, Dr. Chasen can restore your teeth to health and beauty with tooth-colored fillings, inlays, onlays, or crowns. If you have a small cavity, our restorative dentist can treat your tooth with a composite tooth-colored material. Tooth-colored fillings not only look like a natural part of your tooth, but they are also durable and stain-resistant. At Chasen Smiles in Monroe, we strive to offer biologically safe dentistry, which is why we often recommend tooth-colored fillings for your restorative dentistry treatment.

Porcelain crowns fully restore teeth that need treatment for infection, large cavities, or other trauma. Crowns are tooth-shaped caps custom-created to match the size, shape, and color of your real teeth. When Dr. Chasen places your porcelain crown, it will look very natural. A crown strengthens your tooth, returning full function to your once damaged tooth. At our Monroe, WA restorative dental practice, we can use crowns to fix your broken, misshapen, and infected teeth. Crowns can also be used to correct any problems with your bite, change the angle of your teeth to promote better chewing, and to close gaps between to your teeth to promote better function or add cosmetic dazzle to your smile.

Some patients may not require a full crown to restore your teeth to healthy, functioning condition. For teeth with big cavities, an inlay or onlay is usually a better option than a tooth-colored filling. Inlays and onlays are made from porcelain materials and customized to fit in with your tooth structure. When you come to Chasen Smiles for your restorative dentistry appointment, Dr. Chasen will discuss your best options for restoring your teeth, and she can perform comfortable restorations at her Monroe office.
