Restoring teeth comes in a wide range of options. Here's what you need to know about some of the options we offer:
Crowns restore function, stability and strength to teeth after they've been damaged by injury or decay. They're also used to restore teeth after root canals. For teeth that can't be fixed with bonding materials, we'll use this treatment. The area of your mouth being restored will determine which material is used for your crown.
Bridges are used to close gaps in your mouth caused by missing teeth. When left untreated, a missing tooth can significantly impact your dental health by causing teeth on either side of the gap to shift. This can result in bone loss, hard to clean areas, or a dark section in your smile. To prevent these complications and replace a missing tooth, a dental bridge is a great, permanent option.
Implants are a permanent replacement for missing teeth. This treatment involves inserting a titanium post into the bone below your gums, which provides a replacement crown, bridge or prosthetic with a solid foundation. For some patients, implants can be used to attach dentures. To be a good candidate for dental implants, you must have sufficient bone structure.
When cavities are small, we place a tooth-colored filling that chemically bonds to your tooth. We re-create the anatomy of the tooth with proper contours, grooves, and contacts. Because our fillings are chemically bonded to your tooth, you can eat and drink right after your appointment!
No matter which option is best for your tooth, our color-matching experts will make sure your restoration matches perfectly to make your smile beautiful and natural!
