Fillings repair and protect a tooth after a cavity is removed. Cavities often leave a divot behind. We utilize tooth-colored fillings to close the space and prevent future decay. One of the benefits of our composite resin fillings is that we match it to the shade of your tooth so it blends in seamlessly.
Crowns are a versatile treatment. Crowns cap an existing tooth and can be used to cover cracks and chips, repair a broken tooth, protect a weak tooth, or strengthen a tooth after root canal therapy. We handcraft dental crowns to mimic the shape, size, and color of your natural tooth so that it looks just like your natural teeth!
If you’re missing one tooth or multiple teeth in a row, a dental bridge may be the perfect solution for you. Dental bridges are prostheses with dental crowns on either end and replacement teeth in the middle. Bridges attach to existing teeth on both sides of the gap or to dental implants. Once in place, the natural-looking replacement teeth fit snugly into the empty space.
Full & Partial Dentures
Whether you’re missing an entire arch of teeth or a partial arch, our dentures are fabricated to give you back a beautiful, functioning smile. We create modern, custom-fitted full and partial dentures that fit snugly on the gumline. In addition to traditional dentures, we also offer implant-supported dentures that snap into place and don’t shift or slide.
Implants are small titanium posts that mimic natural tooth roots. They go into the jawbone where missing teeth are. Since they are made from biocompatible material, they fuse with the jawbone creating a stable, secure foundation for the replacement teeth. Depending on your needs, we can place a crown, bridge, or denture onto your implants to complete your smile.
Root Canal Therapy
While it may sound intimidating, root canal therapy is actually a common, easy procedure. If the pulp inside your tooth is severely damaged or infected, we can remove it and disinfect the area. Once the pulp is removed, we fill in the empty space with gutta-percha to prevent future decay and then seal off the tooth. Root canal therapy provides almost-instant pain relief and preserves your natural tooth.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
We always strive to keep your natural teeth if possible. However, there are times when a tooth extraction is the best choice for maintaining your oral health. Wisdom teeth removal is one of the most common extractions we perform. The third set of molars are notorious for wreaking havoc on surrounding teeth, coming in at an angle, and getting impacted underneath the gums.
Should I get a bridge, partial dentures, or an implant?
If you need to replace one or more missing teeth, our team can review your budget, preferences, oral health, and lifestyle to help you decide the best treatment for your smile. Dental bridges and partial dentures are often used by patients who want a less invasive treatment option and those who are not eligible for dental implants. Dental implants are excellent for patients who want a stable restoration that feels similar to a natural tooth.
What’s the difference between restorative and cosmetic dentistry?
Restorative dental services focus on repairing and restoring the teeth and gums back to a healthy state, while cosmetic services are typically scheduled to enhance the appearance of the patient’s teeth in terms of color, position, and uniformity. However, it’s fairly common for dental treatments to serve more than one purpose. Dental crowns, for example, protect and support weak teeth, but they can also be used to instantly restore the appearance of a tooth.
Do I need my wisdom teeth removed?
Some patients need all four of their wisdom teeth removed, while other lucky patients either don’t have wisdom teeth or don’t need any removed. If you have recently been feeling pain toward the back of your mouth, we recommend scheduling a visit with our team so we can assess your wisdom teeth. We also examine our patient’s X-rays during their routine visits to determine if they will need their wisdom teeth removed and when the ideal time for the procedure will be.
