A filling is one of the most common treatments in restorative dentistry. We offer composite, tooth-colored fillings to make them less noticeable and safer for your oral health. First, we’ll remove the decay and completely clean your tooth. Then, the composite material will be applied and cured in layers. Finally, we will shape your filling and ensure your bite feels comfortable.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are used to completely cover the visible portion of a damaged natural tooth. Crowns may be composed of a variety of materials, including metal, porcelain, ceramic, or a combination of the three. Additionally, crowns may be used to cap a dental implant and provide you with a natural-looking restoration.
We offer full and partial dentures to replace whatever number of teeth you may be missing. Full dentures are used to replace an entire arch of teeth, while partial dentures are used when you still have teeth remaining in your gum line. Both prostheses are composed of a gum-like, acrylic base with false teeth attached. However, full dentures are held in place by dental adhesives and partial dentures utilize metal clips for stabilization.
Rather than referring you out to an oral surgeon, we perform simple extractions in-house. There are a number of reasons for a tooth extraction, including overcrowding, severe decay, and wisdom teeth removal. Rest assured, we only recommend a full extraction if it is completely necessary.
A popular method for tooth replacement is a dental bridge. Bridges are used to fill the gaps left behind by missing teeth and consist of two or more dental crowns with false teeth in between. Bridges may be attached to either your surrounding natural teeth or dental implants. This form of restorative dentistry is considered a permanent treatment as your dental bridge is only removable by a dental professional.
Dental implants are small, titanium posts that are surgically placed into your jawbone and serve as replacement tooth roots. After your procedure, you will be given time for the implant to fuse with your bone before an abutment and restoration are placed on top. Dental implants may be paired with dentures, crowns, or dental bridges.
