Composite dental fillings blend in seamlessly with the rest of a natural tooth, making them a popular choice over silver dental fillings. Tooth-colored fillings also require less of the tooth to be removed before they can be placed, so more of the patient’s healthy tooth can remain. Composite fillings can last anywhere between 7-10 years on average before they need to be replaced.
Dental Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns are custom restorations that are designed to look just like the natural tooth that the crown is covering. Dental crowns are placed over teeth that have been weakened by damage and need extra support, as well as teeth that are discolored or misshapen that the patient wants cosmetically enhanced. Dental bridges cover three or more teeth at a time, and they can also be used to replace missing teeth.
Patients who have advanced gum disease need to schedule periodontal maintenance visits with our team on a regular basis to keep their teeth and gums as healthy as possible. Periodontal care typically includes thorough teeth cleanings, scaling, and root planing. With proper care, periodontal disease can be controlled and kept from advancing into more severe forms of periodontitis and causing serious issues.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canals involve removing the dental pulp, or the nerves and tissue inside a tooth, to cure tooth infections and restore teeth. Once the pulp is removed, the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed, and a dental crown is placed over the tooth to protect it. While root canals may seem daunting, they are important to schedule if an infection occurs so that the tooth will not need to be removed altogether.
Dental extractions can be recommended to patients for a variety of reasons. If a tooth has undergone too much damage, for example, it may be best to remove it and replace it. Other times, they are removed due to crowding, or the tooth is impacted in the gums. Regardless of the reason, our team offers gentle and efficient dental extractions, and we only recommend them when we believe they’re truly necessary.
Dental implants are known for looking and feeling very similar to natural teeth. The dental implant process involves placing a titanium implant inside the jawbone where it will fuse with the bone and provide a stable base for an implant crown to attach to. Dental implants do not come with any food restrictions, and patients can brush and floss their teeth like normal, as implants don’t require any additional special care.
Full & Partial Dentures
Partial dentures are a minimally invasive option for replacing a few missing teeth at once. Partial dentures are custom-made to clip onto nearby teeth and complete the patient’s smile. Full dentures replace an entire arch of teeth, either all of the top teeth, bottom teeth, or both. If you aren’t sure which choice is right for your smile, our team would be happy to evaluate your smile and make a personalized recommendation.Contact Us
