Our tooth-colored fillings are used for treating cavities; the fillings fill in the space left behind after decay is removed. We use a composite resin material to match your filling to the shade of your tooth so that it blends in flawlessly with your smile. Wondering if you have a cavity? Here are some of the most common signs:
Crowns (also known as dental caps) are used for replacing missing teeth, supporting a compromised tooth, and more. They function and look just like your natural teeth, so no one (even you) can tell the difference. Crowns can be used to treat:
Dental bridges can replace a row of missing teeth. As their name suggests, they bridge that gap and prevent your other teeth from shifting into the space left behind. Bridges are a dental appliance with a row of false—but natural-looking—teeth that we anchor to your existing teeth. In addition to their other benefits, bridges are also known to be one of the most cost-effective tooth replacement options. Bridges are a simple, affordable way to complete your smile. The bridges process takes place in multiple phases:
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are a great way to restore your smile if you’re missing several or all of your teeth. We custom-design a dental prosthesis that’s made up of false teeth attached to a gum-colored material. Dentures are held in place with extra-strength denture adhesives, and can also be snapped onto preexisting dental implants. With advancements in technology, dentures have never been more comfortable or easy to work with! Benefits of dentures include:
Root Canal Therapy
If your tooth is decayed, infected, or severely damaged, our root canal therapy services help save your natural tooth and alleviate pain. While root canal therapy may sound intimidating, it’s actually nothing to fear. Root canals are a safe and quick procedure where we remove the damaged pulp from the tooth and seal it to prevent infection. One of the many perks of root canal therapy is that it gives us the opportunity to preserve your natural tooth and prevent the need for an extraction. The root canal process is a simple procedure that includes:
We take a conservative approach to dentistry, which means that we always strive to preserve your natural teeth. However, there are instances in which a tooth extraction is the best choice for your oral and overall health. Nervous about your extraction? Don’t worry, we provide oral conscious sedation to help you feel relaxed and comfortable while we work to get you back to better health. After your extraction, we’ll go over your tooth replacement options, such as crowns, dentures, and bridges, so that you don’t have to deal with gaps in your smile!
Get your smile back on track the right way.
