Everyday wear and tear, aging, accidents and unchecked periodontal disease can lead to cracked, broken, or missing teeth…all of which can lead to further problems if not corrected. With today’s materials and advanced techniques, our Dentists can keep you smiling for years to come.
Our Restorative Services Include:
Crowns are placed over the entire tooth, restoring it to its normal shape and size. A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance. It can cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth left. These restorations are used to correct severe decay or misalignment as well as teeth that have undergone root canal therapy. Crowns are fabricated in a laboratory to provide a stable bite and enhance esthetics.
Composite resins, or tooth-colored fillings, provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small to mid-size fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. They can be used on either front or back teeth. They are a good choice for people who prefer that their fillings look more natural.
Aesthetics are the main advantage of composite fillings, since dentists can blend shades to create a color nearly identical to that of the actual tooth. Composite fillings bond to the tooth to support the remaining tooth structure, which helps to prevent breakage and insulate the tooth from excessive temperature changes.
Dental implants, used to replace missing teeth, are fixtures that are inserted into the mouth underlying bone to serve as the base for an artificial tooth. A natural looking crown is connected to the top of the implant to provide a predictable way to create an attractive smile.
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and adjacent tissues. It is made of acrylic resin, sometimes in combination with various metals. Complete dentures replace all the teeth, while a partial denture fills in the spaces created by missing teeth and prevents other teeth from changing position. A denture improves chewing ability and speech, and provides support for facial muscles. It will greatly enhance the facial appearance and smile.
