Our practice utilizes tooth-colored dental fillings to restore teeth that have been chipped, broken, or damaged by tooth decay. Composite fillings are an excellent way to restore your smile due to the fact that the filling can be made to match the color of the teeth, allowing the restored tooth to look virtually the same as the rest of the teeth. Composite fillings also don’t require as much of the unaffected part of the tooth to be removed, allowing more of the healthy tooth to remain.
Bridges & Crowns
Dental crowns are often used when a tooth has been weakened due to extensive tooth decay. A dental crown can be placed over the affected tooth to restore both its appearance and functionality, and they help prevent further damage from occurring. Dental bridges are similar but they are often used to “bridge” the gap that is created by one or more missing teeth. They also help to distribute the force of the bite evenly across the other teeth, making chewing that much easier.
Full & Partial Dentures
If you are missing several or all of your teeth, or need numerous teeth extracted and replaced, our full and partial denture services have you covered. Our dentures are always custom-made for each patient, and we work hard to ensure that they look natural and fit comfortably. If you have any teeth that require extracting, we will create immediate dentures for you to wear during the healing process and while your permanent dentures are being created.
Root Canal Therapy
When the tooth pulp inside a tooth has become infected, a root canal procedure must be performed to clear out the infection and return the tooth to a healthy state. Once this is done, the tooth is cleaned and sealed, and a crown is placed on top to add stability and improve its appearance. Root canals have a reputation for being scary or painful dental services, but they tend to be very similar to receiving a filling in many ways.
Dental implants offer many benefits to patients who need a durable, long-lasting tooth replacement solution. Although they are more invasive and require more recovery time than a crown or a bridge, the titanium posts that are used for implants provide a very stable foundation for an artificial tooth to attach to. The post fuses with the jawbone in a process called osseointegration, and then a dental restoration is added that blends in with the surrounding teeth.
Dental Extractions & Wisdom Teeth Removal
Many patients find themselves needing a tooth removal at some point in their lives. It can become necessary in cases where teeth are too crowded together, a tooth has grown in incorrectly, or a tooth has suffered dental trauma or infection and needs to be extracted and replaced. Our team can help with any of these situations, and we always strive to make these procedures as easy and painless as possible.
