RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY

Everyone is familiar with fillings, but what differentiates us is the time and care to make sure they are done right.  A bad filling can prevent you from flossing, can look unnatural, or can fall out much too soon. Although most dentists don’t want to be bothered with a filling, we make sure to excel in them!

Dental bridges are still considered one of the most durable, conservative and cost-effective options for bridging the gap between a missing tooth and surrounding teeth. Comprised of two anchoring teeth and a replacement tooth, dental bridges help prevent surrounding teeth from drifting out of position, improve chewing and speaking, and help keep your natural face shape.

Using dentures to replace missing teeth is not only great for your oral health; its a great way to look and feel younger!  Today, there are a variety of natural-looking and comfortable dentures for patients who need to replace missing teeth.Made of a gum-colored plastic resin or acrylic base and either resin or porcelain replacement teeth, dentures are custom designed to fit your mouth. If you have several teeth or all teeth missing on the upper or lower jaw, full dentures may be your best option. Partial dentures, which can be either fixed or removable, are great for patients who have several missing teeth scattered along the upper or lower jaw.

Root canals get a bad wrap, but they are needed when decay or injury impact the inner tooth (the pulp).  In the earliest stages of infection, you may not feel any pain at all. But when it progressees, you could have a toothache and swelling, or a dental abscess might form. Root canals remove the infection, prevent it from spreading, and save the tooth.

Dental crowns are needed to treat teeth that have extensive decay/damage, hold a dental bridge in place, or cover a tooth after a root canal.  We use innovative materials to ensure the crowns look natural and last a long time.
