Treating Cavities

Dental Fillings

Fillings are the best way to repair teeth that have been affected by a cavity or minor damage, such as a chip or small crack in the tooth. During treatment, the damaged tooth material is removed with specialized dental tools, then a filling is used to replace the damaged enamel. This treatment restores both the function and shape of the tooth.

Restore Infected Teeth

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy treats damaged teeth that have become infected. During treatment, one of our dentists will create a small opening in the affected tooth and remove the infected material. Next, the tooth is cleaned, filled, and capped with a temporary crown or filling. Once the tooth heals, a permanent crown will be placed to cover up and protect the remaining tooth structure.

Fix Damaged, Missing Teeth

Crowns & Bridges

Dental crowns are usually made of porcelain, and are designed to cover up your tooth completely, all the way to the gum line. They are usually recommended for seriously damaged teeth, as they cover up your entire tooth and protect it from further damage while restoring its natural shape and appearance. Bridges are similar, and they consist of two dental crowns which attach to healthy teeth and suspend a false tooth (pontic) in the area where your missing tooth used to be.Mouthguards also prevent soft tissue injuries by covering up your sharp teeth. Without a mouthguard, you could accidentally bite your tongue, lips, or cheeks when you experience a fall or blow to the head, causing serious lacerations and heavy bleeding. 

Treating Tooth Loss

Fixed Bridges

Fixed bridges are often used to replace a single missing tooth. They require you to have two of your teeth trimmed. Two crowns are attached to these teeth, suspending the false tooth where the missing tooth used to be. This type of bridge cannot be removed.

Permanently Restore Missing Teeth

Dental Implants

Dental implants are surgically placed into your gums and jaw, functioning as an artificial tooth root. The implants bond with your bone structure to create a strong base for a restoration. An implant-supported restoration like a dental crown, bridge, or denture will be attached to restore your smile. Implants last 30+ years with proper care and protect the health of your jaw, making them the best long-term method of restoring missing teeth.

Affordable Smile Restoration

Dentures

We offer partial dentures as well as full dentures. Partial dentures replace multiple missing teeth by attaching to your healthy teeth. Full dentures fit directly over your gums, and are a cost-effective way to restore your smile if you’ve lost most or all of your natural teeth.
