Fillings are an easy, common restoration to repair your teeth after they’ve been affected by decay. After the dentist removes the area of decay from your tooth, we fill it with a tooth-colored composite resin. The process is simple and quick and can be completed in just one appointment.
When a traditional filling won’t work for your situation, we may recommend porcelain inlays or onlays. Unlike composite fillings, these restorations actually strengthen the structure of your teeth, and are custom-created to fit the cavity of your tooth. Crafted from tooth-colored porcelain, the dental inlays and onlays are durable and discreet.
Dental inlays cover the inside of the cusps of your teeth, similar to a composite filling.
Dental onlays are larger than inlays, as they cover the cusps of the teeth as well as the cavity needing repair.
Weakened teeth or missing teeth, either due to decay or endodontic therapy, can be restored using crowns and bridges. We use porcelain-fused-to-metal and all-ceramic, metal-free restorations, for strength and stability, and the most natural-looking smile possible.
Severely damaged teeth, those with large fillings, or other weak spots can benefit from a dental crown. These restorations are little “caps” that fit over your tooth, and improve its structural integrity. Crowns are bonded into place and cover the whole tooth above the gum line, giving your tooth a natural appearance. We use CEREC technology so our patients can enjoy strong, custom-made, same-day ceramic crowns made and placed, in most cases, in one convenient visit.
Dental bridges are one option to replace a missing tooth or series of teeth by using crowns as an anchor on each side of the gap caused by the lost tooth. The healthy adjacent teeth are prepared for two crowns to be bonded into place, holding prosthetic replacement teeth in place and restoring your smile completely.
If you have some healthy teeth remaining on either the upper or lower jaw, you may be a candidate for partial dentures. These removable appliances restore missing teeth using prosthetics, which are attached to a gum-colored base and held in place through metal framework or, for a more secure and aesthetic fit, dental implants. Partials are just one of many options for missing teeth, so ask us which is right for you.
Full dentures are available for patients who have lost a whole set of natural teeth. These prosthetics are removable, and custom crafted for your jaw. Dentures are an affordable option for patients with missing teeth, and we ensure the fit is comfortable and accurate.
Want the most permanent, natural solution to missing teeth? Consider dental implants. We’ll recommend a specialist who can place your dental implants, and upon healing, we’ll complete the procedure by adding a customized crown that mimics the look and feel of your natural teeth. Our doctors are highly skilled at restoring dental implants that may be subject to possible deterioration. With the assistance of special technology, such as a Galileos Cone Beam 3D Panoramic Scanner, restoring your dental implants has never been easier or more accurate.
Sometimes problem teeth just have to come out. Don’t worry! We perform minor extractions in our office, and ensure you’re always comfortable and relaxed during the procedure. You’ll be pain-free and back to your usual routine as soon as possible. For more advanced procedures, we’re happy to refer you to a specialist.
Our advanced technology makes delivering quality dentistry easier, and helps us to diagnose and treat your dental issues accurately and timely. We can spot issues before they become larger, more invasive, and more expensive problems.
Our technology is vital in providing great dental care to our patients. We employ Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC) technology to craft porcelain restorations in just one appointment, meaning less time spent in the dental chair. Our digital photography, including digital x-rays, is low-radiation, which means a safer look at what’s going on inside your mouth, and the high-resolution images give a crystal-clear picture of even the tiniest area of concern.
