Broken, damaged, or decayed teeth can negatively affect your self-esteem, lifestyle, and your future oral health.
At Shook Family Dental, we’re here to help. Dr. John Shook is an expert restorative dentist. This area of dentistry focuses specifically on restoring damaged or missing teeth, protecting your oral health, and providing you with the care you need to live your day-to-day life without pain or discomfort. Schedule your next visit in Eau Claire to get the help you need.
At your initial restorative appointment, Dr. Shook will perform a comprehensive oral exam and take x-rays to determine the extent and severity of your oral health problems. He will discuss these findings with you, and work with you to develop a smile restoration plan that meets your needs, budget, and personal preferences.
We offer tooth-colored composite fillings at Shook Family Dental. Fillings are a great option for restoring decayed teeth and preventing further damage, as well as complications like tooth infections.
Inlays and onlays are similar to fillings, but are made from porcelain. They can be used to restore larger, more serious decay and damage to the teeth.
Dental crowns are also a great option for damaged teeth. Crowns are hollow, tooth-shaped pieces of porcelain that are permanently bonded to your tooth. Acting as a cap, the crown covers the tooth and protects it from further damage, while also restoring its natural appearance and function.
Dr. Shook is always here to help you get the restorative care you need in Eau Claire. Among many others, we provide the following restorative services at our office.
Dental bridges use two crowns that attach to healthy teeth, suspending one or more false teeth in the gap in your smile. They’re durable, long-lasting, and require little special care.
Known as one of the most secure and long-lasting tooth replacement options available, dental implants can restore missing teeth and seamlessly blend in with the rest of your smile.
Root canal therapy is used to restore infected teeth. In this procedure, Dr. Shook opens up the tooth, cleans out the inside, fills it, and caps it with a crown to protect the tooth from further damage.
We offer both full and partial dentures. Full dentures require the extraction of any remaining healthy teeth and restore your entire mouth. Partial dentures can restore just a few teeth, and clip onto your remaining healthy teeth to stay in place.
