Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry

Fillings: Fillings are used to repair a tooth that has been affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The affected portion of the tooth is removed and then filled with an appropriate filling material. This type of treatment is a good way of correcting a small problem before it becomes a bigger and more expensive problem.

Bridges: When single or multiple teeth are missing, they can be replaced with either fixed or removable bridges.

Root Canal Therapy: When the pulp that is inside the tooth becomes infected, it cannot repair itself. Years ago, extraction was the only option. Today, through endodontics, or root canal therapy, these teeth can be saved.

Cosmetic Veneers: Dental veneers are a form of cosmetic dentistry in which a shell or layer of tooth-colored porcelain or composite is placed over the facial surfaces of your teeth to correct worn tooth enamel, uneven tooth alignment or spacing, discoloration and chips or cracks.

Enamel Bonding: The appearance of malformed or broken teeth can be amazingly improved by bonding a veneer of porcelain or composite to their surfaces.

  • Composite: Composite or tooth colored fillings can be matched to the color of your teeth and are often recommended for front teeth, certain posterior teeth, and other areas that are visible.

Amalgam: Amalgam or silver fillings are very strong and are very useful for restoring weakened back teeth. There is currently no scientific evidence that the mercury in amalgam is related to any disease. Dental amalgam still remains a useful restorative material in dentistry.

Extractions: Extractions are performed when teeth cannot be saved or when they need to be removed for other reasons, such as orthodontics (braces).

Crowns: When too much of a tooth is decayed or broken away, it is best restored with a crown. A crown is typically fabricated with porcelain (a tooth-colored material), gold, or non-precious metal.

Dentures and Partials: Complete dentures are used to replace missing teeth for people with no remaining teeth. Dentures may also be used for people who have lost several teeth. In this case, the appliance is called a partial denture or an overdenture.

Implants:  Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.

Tooth Whitening:  A take-home bleaching kit is offered for your convenience.

TMJ Therapy: Most treatments for TMJ symptoms are simple and can be done at home, without the need for surgery. The most severe cases may require treatment with splints, mouth guards or other traditional forms of TMJ therapy.
