Restorative Dentistry Can Repair Damaged Teeth and Rebuild Your Smile
Dental implants are the best solution for missing teeth, as they stimulate the jawbone to promote oral health and dental function. These titanium posts replace tooth roots and can support several restorations. We can coordinate your dental implant placement with a local oral surgeon or periodontist.
Dental crowns can restore compromised teeth to natural function and appearance following a root canal or structural damage. Typically, we can create your crown in a single visit using our in-office CEREC system, custom designed to match the color, size, and shape of your natural teeth.
A dental bridge spans the gap left after you have lost one or more adjacent teeth. A bridge is comprised of artificial teeth fused together, seamlessly restoring your smile and chewing function. It may be supported by dental crowns or secured to dental implants embedded in your jaw.
CEREC enables us to design and fabricate porcelain inlays, onlays, crowns, veneers and certain types of bridges in a single visit. We can take 3-D images of your smile, which are then used to guide computerized manufacturing technology. Once complete, we can immediately place your restoration.
If you have a dental infection, we can perform a root canal treatment to remove compromised tissue and strengthen the tooth structure. After disinfecting and filling the canals, we can place a crown to save remaining tissue and protect your tooth from reinfection.
