Because patients these days look for metal-free, mercury-free dental care, we provide tooth-colored composite fillings instead of silver amalgam fillings. Fillings can be used for smaller and medium-sized cavities or chips, and tooth-colored composite resin fillings have benefits beyond appearance. They also don’t expand or contract with temperature changes, which is something that occurs with metal fillings and can damage your teeth. Patients love that they can enjoy more attractive dental work that is simultaneously better for their oral health.
We also offer various porcelain dental restorations, including crowns, bridges, and dental implants. With these restorations, we can offer you tooth repair and replacement that looks very natural and feels very comfortable.
Dental implants are tiny, biocompatible posts that are surgically placed within the jaw in place of a missing tooth. Your implant serves as a secure anchor for a custom crown, bridge, or denture. Dental implants are considered the gold standard of restorative dentistry and since we perform both dental implant placement and restoration, we perform this treatment often for people in our community. With regular maintenance, they can last over 30 years and even an entire lifetime!
A crown and bridge restoration replaces one or more missing teeth using support from the two healthy teeth that exist on either side of a gap in your smile. The materials used to craft our dental bridges and crowns are incredibly lifelike, ensuring that you enjoy not only improved functionality, but enhanced aesthetic appeal as well. Whether you want to replace a single tooth or multiple consecutive teeth, dental bridges are an excellent solution. With regular care, your dental bridges can last 10 years and longer!
Full and Partial Dentures
For patients who are missing a substantial number of teeth located throughout one or both arches, a partial denture may prove the ideal tooth replacement option. This custom prosthetic fits into your mouth like a piece to a jigsaw puzzle and is usually secured with tiny clasps. When all of the teeth in an arch are missing, a full denture may be recommended. This type of prosthetic consists of a full row of custom-crafted replacement teeth affixed to a gum-colored base for the most natural appearance possible.
In some cases, a denture may be secured using dental implants. Dental implants offer unparalleled stability for dentures, firmly anchoring your custom restoration in place so that you can enjoy a full diet without the worry of slipping dentures or discomfort. Thanks to the esthetically-pleasing materials used to create your restoration as well as the bone stimulation the implants provide, you can expect your denture to look incredibly natural as well, particularly compared to traditional solutions.
