Composite (tooth colored) fillings have become the material of choice for restoring decayed teeth. Because they can be bonded to tooth structure, they can be placed much more conservatively than silver fillings, which require a larger cavity preparation with undercuts to hold the material in. The best part is, the fillings match your teeth so it will appear as if you’ve never had a filling!
Veneers are thin, custom made shells of ceramic material that are bonded to the front of teeth. They are a conservative cosmetic dental procedure to correct the shape, color or size of a tooth.
We offer both in-office and at-home tooth whitening options. Our in-office option takes about 2 hours and offers immediate results. Our at-home whitening system is often just as effective and can be done at home. Dramatic results with our at-home whitening system are often seen in as little as 10 days.
Dental implants have proven to be the closest thing to a natural tooth when it comes to replacing missing teeth. They do not rely on neighboring teeth to support them and can be cared for just like a normal tooth. Dental implants are used to replace single teeth or many teeth when placed under a bridge or denture.
Teeth that have large cavities, failed silver fillings, cracks or fractures, or a history of root canal therapy commonly need a crown (cap) to restore them. Crowns are made of porcelain or gold and cover the tooth completely to strengthen severely compromised teeth. We’ll take the time to discuss what’s best for you.
Fixed bridges replace one or more missing teeth and have been used successfully for generations. A fixed bridge utilizes natural teeth as anchors by placing crowns on them to support the replacement teeth, and they are not removable.
Root Canal Treatments
Root Canal Treatment restores the tooth when the root canal of a tooth becomes infected or damaged due to decay or trauma.
An extraction is the removal of a tooth. Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons including a cavity too large to warrant a crown, problematic wisdom teeth, and often to make space for orthodontic treatment.
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth still remain. An implant-supported denture is a type of denture that is supported by and attached to dental implants. The denture is still removable but can be clasped to the dental implants for better support and function.
