Our main goal is to prevent cavities and a breakdown in oral health, but sometimes we have to remove decay and restore function. We always do our best to offer you options for your best smile and health. Everyone is different and each tooth and mouth have unique circumstances. We gather as much information as possible to help you make the best decision for you and the longevity of your teeth and your optimal health. We can do this by placing composite or white fillings, crowns, bridges, partial dentures, and implant crowns to restore ultimate function. We provide a full range of restorative procedures, including composite or "white" fillings, implants, crowns and bridges, and veneers, which are usually metal-free.
Composite or "White" Fillings
Composite fillings provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small- to mid-size fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. They can be used on either front or back teeth.
Dental crowns are "caps" placed on top of damaged teeth to restore function. They cover most of the tooth. Crowns are used to protect, cover and restore the shape of your teeth when too much tooth structure is missing and a filling is not strong enough to support the remaining tooth structure. There are many types of crowns. We place zirconia and emax crowns which are white and replicate teeth shape and color or gold crowns which replicate the tooth structure in gold.
A dental bridge is a false tooth (called a pontic) that is held in place by the abutment teeth, usually crowned teeth on either side of the gap. Although pontics can be made from a variety of materials such as gold, typically they’re made from porcelain to aesthetically blend in with your natural teeth.
After having an implant placed in the bone and tissue, we will scan the head of the implant and create an abutment and an implant crown to replace the tooth that was lost.
