Restorative Dentistry Services
Don’t feel like you have to suffer any longer. We can change your life with dental implants. Let us show you how.
Dental implants are strong, durable, and stable. They’ll give you back the look and feel of a natural tooth. In addition to the aesthetic value, dental implants are an essential part of restorative dentistry as they ensure you maintain a healthy jawbone and avoid unnecessary oral problems that might arise later.
The two common types of dental implants include Endosteal implants and Subperiosteal implants. Endosteal implants involve a surgical process that directly fits the artificial tooth to the jawbone after the gum has healed whereas Subperiosteal implants consist of a metal frame that is fixed below the gum tissue and the teeth are artificially mounted later.
Implant Supported Dentures
Unlike traditional dentures, implant supported dentures are locked into place, preventing the problems that occur when loose dentures slide around the mouth, including gum sores, difficulty speaking and difficulty chewing. And, with the firm foundation that comes with dental implants, your implant supported dentures from Dr. Farless will look, feel, and stimulate your jawbone like natural teeth, promoting your long-term oral health and preventing bone loss.Ask Dr. Farless or Dr. Locklear how you can replace a tooth, or even an entire set of teeth, with beautiful, natural-looking, implant supported dentures.

The 3 most common types of dentures in restorative dentistry include:
Conventional full denture – Dentures placed after all the teeth in your mouth have been removed and your gums have healed completely.
Immediate full denture – As its name suggests, these are dentures placed immediately after the removal of your teeth. Although you will not be toothless for long, you will need to reline your denture months later since your jawline reshapes as it heals.
Partial denture – If you are only needing to replace a few missing teeth, then partial dentures are the way to go. These rest on metal frames attached to your healthy teeth to provide support.
A partial denture from Dr. Farless or Dr. Locklear is a restorative dental option that can correct a gap in your smile that’s too wide for a dental bridge.To ensure a perfect fit, Dr. Farless or Dr. Locklear will custom design your partial denture restoring your smile and your mouth’s form and function. Don’t let a gap in your bite derail your oral health. Fill that gap with a partial denture from Dr. Farless or Dr. Locklear.

After losing a tooth, a large gap in your smile can create significant problems for your dental health if left uncorrected. Eventually, your bite pressure could shift to other parts of your mouth to compensate for an inability to chew efficiently, and nearby teeth may move into the gap, resulting in discomfort, pain, and further problems.
Restorative dentistry options like bridges allow you to correct gaps before the trouble occurs.
After preparing the two neighboring teeth, Dr. Farless or Dr. Locklear will create crowns for them. A prosthetic tooth (pontic) is fused between the crowns. In this way, the device literally “bridges the gap” in your smile.
Same Day Crowns with CEREC™
We all have busy schedules. That’s why we offer Same Day Crowns with CEREC™
Cerec same day crowns is an evolutionary modern technology that greatly improves the quality and speed of dental restoration. Unlike traditional crowns, this process takes only a few hours and is very pocket-friendly.
The Cerec process involves taking your tooth’s digital impression. The impression is then printed on the Cerec 3D machine and the tooth glazed and stained to look like your natural teeth. All this process takes place on the same day, allowing you to go home fitted with a permanent dental solution.

Replacing Missing Teeth
Missing teeth can cause your mouth to sag, your teeth to move, and your face to look older. If you are missing one or more teeth, we recommend replacing these teeth with a fixed bridge, removable partial denture, or surgically inserting a dental implant.
