A Stable Solution that Renews Your Smile
If you've lost teeth due to accident, injury, or gum disease, we may recommend a permanent bridge. A bridge not only fills the gap created by a lost tooth, but it also prevents movement of remaining teeth.
Crowns are single-tooth restorations that are recommended in cases where there is insufficient tooth structure left due to fractures, decay, or failing restorations. Crowns cover the entire visible tooth surface and help restore broken-down teeth to proper function and esthetic.
When periodontal disease, tooth decay, or tooth loss severely compromise your oral health, a patient may feel embarrassed about seeking professional help. Our office welcomes patients with any form of dental problem. We applaud you for taking a step toward reclaiming a strong and healthy smile for a healthier life! You'll feel better emotionally and physically when you have a comfortable, beautiful smile to share with the world.
Now patients who are missing teeth have a strong, beautiful alternative to spaces, bridges, partials, or full dentures. Dental implants will improve your smile and your lifestyle. They look, feel, and function just like natural teeth because of a titanium anchor that is placed to act as the foundation for a replacement tooth. In addition to replacing a single missing tooth, implants can also anchor bridges, partials, or full dentures.
You have a big filling that needs replacement. Do you have to get a full crown? Not necessarily. A more conservative option, inlays and onlays are lab-created restorations like crowns that only cover part of a tooth, rather than the entire tooth surface. The bumps on top of a tooth are called cusps. Inlays fit between cusps, while onlays fit over one or more cusps. Inlays and onlays allow a patient to retain more natural tooth structure, which is always best.
If you're embarrassed about your smile because of decay or dark fillings in your teeth, you may be a good candidate for composite resins. Composite resins can restore teeth to an attractive, healthy state. Composite resins represent several advantages over traditional silver or amalgam fillings.
