Restoring Your Smile

When tooth structure is damaged by decay or trauma, restorative dentistry procedures allow us to use a variety of dental materials to rebuild the tooth to proper function.

Dental Crowns

A crown can be used to restore a tooth that has extensive decay or damage. Designed to fit snugly and function as a healthy tooth, a crown will protect your tooth from further damage and preserve the jaw’s correct natural alignment. Crowns can be made using precious metal, porcelain fused to metal, or, all porcelain crowns can be used to maintain a fully white smile. Porcelain dental crowns are extremely durable and long lasting; these benefits make them popular with our patients.

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays are used to treat the teeth that have decay or damage lying within their indented top surfaces. Onlays are used to treat decay that extends out over the cusps of the tooth. Inlays and Onlays are tooth colored and made from durable porcelain; they are most often used to replace old or damaged metal fillings.

Dental Bridges

If you have lost a tooth, either genetically or due to injury, we can create a permanent bridge to restore your smile. A bridge not only fills the gap, but it also prevents repositioning of remaining teeth. A fixed bridge is a replacement tooth (or teeth) that attaches to adjacent teeth with prepared crowns. If the teeth on either side of the space are weak a fixed bridge may be your best option. With proper care, a fixed bridge may last at least 8 to 10 years.

Natural Color Tooth Fillings

Composites are white fillings that are designed to match the color of your teeth. Composite resins represent several advantages over traditional silver fillings. Because they are not made of metal, we can blend and mix shades to find the perfect color. Composite resin actually bonds to the tooth and thus supports the remaining tooth structure, deterring breakage and providing a better seal and insulation against temperature changes. The tooth is stronger and less cold/hot sensitive than if a silver filling was done.

Air Abrasion Dentistry

Our practice is equipped with air abrasion technology. Using air under pressure and tiny "sand-like" particles, this minimally invasive technology gives our doctors the tools to remove small areas of decay without the need for drills or shots. This is especially appealing for children with deep grooves in young permanent teeth in preparation for dental sealants or small fillings.

We believe that the more natural tooth structure you keep the better teeth you’ll likely have in the future. Prevention is the key – we invite you to Contact Us to schedule a complete dental examination and let us help you keep your smile healthy and looking its best!
