Repairing Smiles to Last
Eventually, absolutely everyone needs a little bit of restorative dentistry. Chipped, cracked, decayed, broken, and missing teeth are all very common issues, even for people who brush and floss consistently! If you have a problem tooth or teeth in need of repair, then our team can provide you with a specially-designed restoration made of only the strongest and most natural-looking materials. With our help, we’ll make it look like nothing ever happened to your smile. To start getting the treatment you need, contact us today.
Traditional Crown & Bridge
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that simply fits over the top of a damaged tooth to protect it as well as restore its strength and appearance at the same time. With them, we can make even the most compromised tooth look and feel like new again! Crowns can even be attached to other prosthetic teeth to form a bridge and fill in the gap left by a missing tooth or a few in a row.
Thanks to tooth-colored fillings, we can now repair small cavities and slightly damaged teeth without affecting their appearance. These fillings are made of composite resin, which can be specially shaded to perfectly match surrounding enamel, making them practically invisible in the mouth. Plus, only a small amount of composite is needed to fully restore a tooth, making it a more conservative solution that keeps your natural tooth mostly intact (which will help it last longer).
CEREC One Visit Restorations
Traditionally, getting a tooth repaired with a crown required at least two visits to the dentist’s office, a messy impression, and a week spent with an unreliable crown that could fall out at any moment. Thanks to our CEREC technology, these are now all problems of the past! With it, we can design, manufacture, and place a completely custom-made crown in just one visit, enabling you to spend less time in our office and more time simply enjoying your smile!
Full & Partial Dentures
Whether you are missing just a few teeth or an entire row, dentures offer a relatively quick and affordable solution that will greatly enhance your ability to speak, eat, and smile normally again. Partial dentures are designed to fill in the spaces between the healthy remaining teeth like the piece of a puzzle, while full dentures can bring back an entire arch of teeth in an instant. No matter what you need, we’ll provide you with a prosthetic that helps you reclaim your beautiful, complete smile.
A root canal, despite its extremely bad reputation, is a very useful procedure that allows our team to relieve the most severe dental pain and save teeth that would otherwise need to be removed. We use them when the innermost portion of a tooth, called the dental pulp, has become infected, which can lead to the mother of all toothaches. With a root canal, we can easily eliminate this pain while keeping you completely comfortable during the entire procedure.
While we do everything we can to help our patients keep all of their natural teeth for as long as possible, in some cases, the best thing we can do for a person’s oral and overall health is remove one. We usually need to do this if:
- A tooth is too damaged to be restored
- Gum disease has deteriorated the bone supporting a tooth
- A baby tooth refuses to fall out naturally/is blocking an erupting adult tooth
- Room needs to be created for a denture/orthodontic treatment
