Restorative Dentistry

Dental Fillings

Cavities are one of the most common oral diseases, so it's imperative we tackle them as soon as they begin to compromise the health and wellness of your teeth. When left untreated, they can cause serious discomfort and may require more invasive procedures to alleviate. Thanks to fillings, your dentist can halt the progression of tooth decay in a single visit. By stopping by for your regular 6-month cleaning and checkup, you can prevent new cavities from forming in the first place.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns can help revive your smile if you are struggling with cracked or broken teeth. These tooth-shaped caps serve as a protective layer for the natural root of your tooth while enhancing your bite's functionality. If you have undergone a root canal or dental implant procedure, a crown can also improve the health of your tooth. With the option to choose from a range of materials, crowns are suitable for both restorative and cosmetic purposes, allowing you to smile with ease and confidence.

Root Canal Therapy

Toothaches can be a sign of a serious infection and cause significant discomfort. Fortunately, root canal therapy offers a solution to provide the relief you need and restore the health of your tooth.

During a root canal procedure, the infected pulp of the tooth is removed, and the area is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. Once the tooth has been properly treated, it can be restored with a filling or a dental crown to help maintain its structure.

Not only can root canal therapy alleviate the pain caused by the infection, but it can also prevent the need for a tooth extraction. By saving your natural tooth, you can smile with confidence and avoid more extensive and costly dental work down the line.

Extractions

Extractions are always our last option — saving your smile is our number one priority. However, a problematic tooth is sometimes more trouble than it's worth. Our team may recommend an extraction as the best way to get your oral health back on the right path. With gentle techniques, and local anesthesia or sedation, decaying teeth can be removed to alleviate your discomfort or to make room for dental implants, a bridge, or another type of tooth replacement.

Restorative Dentistry

Dental Implants

If you're in need of an extraction or already missing a tooth, there are several options you have for replacement. Dental implants can restore not just the look of your smile, but the functionality of your bite and your overall oral health. The most secure and long-lasting tooth replacement, dental implants can also slow or even stop the progression of bone loss by replicating the form and function of your natural tooth roots.

Restorative Dentistry

Dental Bridges

There's no need to keep covering up your mouth if a missing tooth is leaving a gap in your smile. With a dental bridge, the space left behind by one, or several, missing teeth can be permanently covered. The bridge is attached to your teeth on either side of the gap, so it won't slide around when you eat or speak. Your bridge also won't stand out from the rest of your smile —it can be color-matched to blend with your other teeth.

Partial Dentures

Missing just a few teeth? Partial dentures may be the right choice for you. Partial dentures look natural, are removable, and can be a great solution to restoring the function of your teeth and jaw.

Dentures

Dentures are a removable, affordable solution that can complete your smile after missing one or all of your natural teeth. To ensure a natural look and feel, most dentures are made of a combination of acrylic and metal and are custom-crafted for a comfortable fit. Looking to see if dentures are right for you? Schedule a consultation to find out if a set of full or partial dentures can restore your bite. It's about time you got back to living your life with a smile.

Implant-Retained Dentures

Tired of your dentures slipping and sliding around in your mouth? Implant-retained dentures, also called overdentures or snap-on dentures, can replace all of your teeth, just like traditional dentures. However, instead of relying on suction or adhesive, they are secured in place with several dental implants. These removable appliances make it easy to keep up with your oral hygiene, and are made from a combination of acrylic and metal materials for enhanced durability.

Restorative Dentistry

Implant Crowns

After your dental implant has been affixed, your dentist will make the finishing touches by adding an implant crown! Dental crowns act as tooth "caps" that are fitted onto the implant. Your dentist will ensure the size and color of your implant crown matches with the rest of your other teeth, so you can have a seamless new smile.
