We enjoy the challenge of restoring your smile. And thanks to rapid advances in dental technology, there is much more that we can do for our patients these days. Modern ceramic materials combined with the in-depth experience of our clinical team can assure you an effective & long-lasting result. For example, crowns can be used to replace the top part of a tooth when it has become irreparably damaged but the root is still healthy. On occasion, cavities can become too large for an ordinary filling, so we will suggest an alternative — a ceramic onlay or inlay. These are skillfully made in the laboratory to fit the shape of the cavity & the color of the surrounding teeth.
Crowns cover & support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth left. It can be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that’s already broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped. It’s also used to cover a dental implant. A crown can make your tooth stronger & improve its appearance.
To increase speaking & chewing ability, we attach a customized denture to individual implants or a row of implants, securing the denture in place. They look completely natural, are long-lasting & are quite durable.
Dental & Restorative Implants
Dental implants are essentially permanent, attached teeth that replace partials, bridges or dentures. A titanium implant is permanently attached to your bone & a prosthetic tooth (crown) is attached to the implant. Implants are preferred to bridges because they can improve your bite without damaging neighboring teeth (like a bridge might). Treatment can be finished in three to five visits over a period of about four to 12 months. Our team can restore implants in our office or help you plan your dental implant treatment & refer you to a trusted implant specialist.
Put simply, endodontic care is the term for the treatments & procedures a dentist will use to save a tooth if it becomes infected or injured. Endodontics involves treating the tissues inside your teeth that surround the root & includes root canal therapy. An endodontist is a dental specialist who completes at least two additional years of training & uses advanced technology & procedures to comfortably preserve your natural teeth & keep you smiling.
