We are now able to offer more options for restoring a tooth back to its normal shape, appearance and function through improved techniques and modern technology. Should your teeth ever require a restorative treatment, you can rest assured knowing we will always discuss with you the available options, and recommend what we believe to be the least invasive treatment.
A composite (tooth colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling.
A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings. Porcelain crowns are the most popular due to the resemblance to natural teeth and their long-term durability. Crowns are custom made to match the shape, size and color of your teeth.
Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures. Dental implants are artificial roots, usually made of titanium and are surgically placed by your dentist.
An onlay restoration is a custom made filling made of composite material, gold, or tooth-colored porcelain. Onlays are an ideal alternative to crowns (caps) because less tooth structure is removed in the preparation of inlays.
Complete & Partial Dentures
A denture is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some teeth remain.
A dental bridge is a non-removable appliance that is used to replace missing teeth. They can replace anywhere from 2 teeth to a full upper or lower arch.
