Implants, Crowns & Fillings

Restorative dentistry includes fillings, crowns, veneers and fixed and removable dentures (prosthesis).

Fillings

Numerous choices are available. Often  it becomes a patient preference.  We will help guide you to making good decisions.  Composite and porcelain are materials that are so popular today as compared to the more traditional gold and silver options which have their place yet are not often discussed nor offered by many offices today.     

Crowns

It’s important to deal quickly with fractured teeth, a loose or broken filling, or a re-decayed crown. Once a restoration has lost its seal, a cavity will form more quickly.  Waiting or ignoring may allow the decay to reach the nerve. Then, the only treatment options are a root canal or an extraction.

There are many materials available with which to make a crown.  Each has their advantage and disadvantage and we will be happy to discuss the wide array of choices open to you and to help guide you into making a good decision.

Veneers

We offer the ever so popular smile enhancing veneers as a way to change the color or shape of a tooth as well as manage space and tooth alignment.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are changing the way people look at themselves and their future. Today we can replace either a single tooth or a full jaw with dental implants. Restoring the implants with beautiful crowns or removable appliance results in a permanent, stable and highly functional solution.

Dental implants are the most permanent solution for a missing tooth.  There would be not need to destroy two good, healthy teeth on either side of a space for a bridge when an implant could be placed instead.  In multiple missing teeth situations, implants become an even better long-term solution due to the increased forces of chewing and the strength that they will provide.
Implants also prevent bone deterioration and preserve your facial structure. We provide this service in conjunction with a list of our preferred surgical specialists.

Removable Partial And Full Denture Prosthesis

We have advanced training in removable partial and full denture prosthesis. Not every case can be or has to be fully implant supported nor can all cases be restored with fixed bridgework. Therefore removable prosthesis must be considered.
