Restorative Dentistry Services
Dental fillings are treatment done to restore the function, integrity and morphology of missing or damaged tooth structure as a result of decay or external trauma. The restorations done in our office are tooth colored for the most natural appearance.
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. The implants are titanium posts which are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, dental implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration which occurs when teeth are missing. Dental implants are changing the way people live! With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.
A dental bridge is a device used to replace missing teeth and attaches artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth, called abutment teeth. Bridges are permanent. If you’re missing one or more teeth, you may be aware of their importance to your appearance and dental health. Your teeth work together for many daily functions from eating to speaking. With missing teeth, it is often difficult to do these things. Missing teeth can and should be replaced. Fixed bridges are a great way to restore your dental health and appearance.
A crown is a tooth-colored restoration the covers and protects the tooth in its entirety. This is done when substantial loss of tooth structure and/ or extensive decay is present. By covering the entire tooth, crowns strengthen the tooth and restore its function.
Same Day Crowns

This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants or bridges. A tooth’s nerve and pulp can become irritated, inflamed, and infected due to deep decay, large fillings, or a crack in your tooth. It may also occur due to trauma to the face. All of these can cause damage to a tooth‘s nerve requiring a root canal. During this procedure, the nerve and pulp of the tooth are removed, cleaned, and sealed. Often this is a 2-visit sequence of appointments to complete. After completion, a crown is usually required to protect the tooth structure.
