Treat Dental Conditions with Rejuvenating Restorations
Tooth enamel is the hardest substance in the human body, but it is not immune to trauma, damage or decay. At times, normal wear can cause teeth to lose luster, requiring restorations and enhancements.
While listening to your dental concerns and carefully examining your oral health, we can determine which methods would best reverse dental damage and protect the long-term health of your smile.
Here are some of the restorative treatments we provide that can give you a smile you can be proud to share:
Tooth-colored fillings: Matched to dental enamel, these fillings bond to teeth and repair teeth, helping to preserve the maximum amount of dental structure. Composite resin fillings contain no toxic metals.
Inlays and Onlays: For teeth with advanced decay, partial crowns replace damaged sections of teeth with a customized prosthetic.
Porcelain Crowns: These restorations can be placed on teeth that have undergone root canal therapy or other treatment for dental-related damage. Crowns are made from dental-grade ceramic color-matched to surrounding teeth. When cared for, crowns can last a lifetime.
Fixed Bridges: This prosthetic replaces two or more missing teeth in a row. Bridges are teeth replacements made to look like a group of teeth.
Dentures and Partial Dentures: Dentures are removable mouthpieces that rest on top of the gums and restore minor function. These prosthetics are made of an acrylic base and porcelain teeth that are matched to surrounding oral structures. To remain securely in place, they rely on adhesive paste or metal hooks clasped onto neighboring teeth.
Implant-Supported Restorations: The most comprehensive and healthy treatment for tooth loss, dental implants, use posts to stabilize restorations. The posts act as tooth roots and keep your jaw bone, facial structure, and neighboring teeth healthy.
Implants can support:
- Porcelain Crowns for single tooth replacements
- Dental bridges to support a row of teeth
- Hybrid Permanent Dentures to support a full arch
- Overdentures to support removable dentures
