Why Restorations Are Necessary
Dental restorations are necessary for protecting and re-establishing proper oral function after injury or decay. These restorations can restore the look and function of a damaged tooth, and protect it from further deterioration. Unlike other mineralized structures, a tooth cannot regenerate tissue to heal itself if cracked or chipped. While a broken bone may heal over time, a chipped tooth will not.
Despite teeth being the hardest structure in the human body, once a tooth is damaged it will only continue to deteriorate. As the enamel wears away or is exposed through a break or crack, the innermost structures become exposed to oral debris and bacteria.
Unfortunately, when the root of a tooth is exposed, it can become necessary to intervene with root canal therapy. A root canal can stop the advancement of a painful infection or abscess. If a tooth is beyond what a root canal can salvage, the tooth may need to be extracted and tooth replacement options will become necessary.
If treated in time, a diseased or damaged tooth can be easily saved with a root canal and crown treatment.
Materials Used to Make Restorations
There are a number of materials available from which to fabricate crowns and bridges. Metals, such as silver or gold, and even porcelain are commonly used to create crowns. Budget-conscious patients may opt to use metals for restorations at the back of the mouth and choose porcelain or porcelain-fused-to-metal for crowns at the front of the mouth. These combination crowns are aesthetically pleasing and durable.

After two crowns and two cleanings, I continue to be impressed by Dr. Gwilt and the staff at Dental Depot!
They have helped my get my crowns reattached. Love them wonderful service.
I have been coming for almost a year now and have had no problems. I've had root canals, crowns, fillings, and teeth cleanings and zero problems. They are awesome. The bad reviews on here befuddle me because they are all so nice. Plus they are open on SATURDAY WOOOT
Originally, I got a recommendation from a co-worker to go there. That was 11 years ago. Though I am generally scared of dentists because of bad experiences in the past, that has never been a problem with Dr. Glenn Ashmore at Dental Depot. My biannual cleanings with various dental hygienists have also gone well. I love watching the various toy trains that go in and out of the various rooms. Though I don't have kids, they have a kids play area. In addition to my regular cleanings, I've had crowns replaced and one root canal. When I had a lot of pain the day following the root canal, they got me in to be seen immediately the next morning. So if I love going there after all those experiences, you know they have to be good! Also, I've recommended them to many of my co-workers who have also had great experiences. I would give them more than 5 stars if I could.
Though not related to dental work, Dental Depot does a lot to beautify the grounds around their offices. For that they have received accolades from OKC Beautiful.
I've been going here for about 10 years now. I've been seen mostly by Glenn but occasionally by Cody. When I first started going there, I had just gotten insurance and was correcting some years of not having insurance. I had to have my wisdom teeth pulled, and they offered to fix all of my other cavities for $800. I didn't have $800, and they said they would let me pay it out. I was pretty broke and I really didn't think I could even afford to pay it out, but as I found later, they really, really meant that they would let me pay it out.
I went to Dental Depot on SW 104th and they wanted a lot more for the same work, so I came back to NW 23rd. They made good on their pricing promise and it was good.
Then later I needed two root canals and crowns, and they let me pay it out. They really worked with me on that, so it was actually affordable.
