Do you remember the fillings you got when you were a kid? Sure you do! They may even still be there in your mouth.
They likely had the following traits:
- Been dark or rough.
- Caused your teeth to feel sensitive when you ate or drank anything hot or cold.
- Made you a little bit embarrassed because they were so noticeable.
They may still be causing you to hold back your smile. We don’t want that for our patients! That’s why we offer the safety, beauty, and comfort of tooth-colored fillings for our patients who experience tooth decay and cavities.
Tooth-colored-fillings are made of the same resin material we use for composite bonding so you know it will be both attractive and long lasting. We simply clear away any decay or infection, custom match the resin material to your tooth, and apply. The resin is then hardened with a special light and smoothed to feel perfect to your tongue. No more rough edges or sensitivity to hot and cold!
Porcelain Inlays / Porcelain Onlays
Oh, no! You were just eating some popcorn and—crack!—something feels broken way back in your mouth. It doesn’t feel too bad yet, but you know you want to get it fixed right away to be sure infection doesn’t start or more damage occurs.
Will you need a crown? Maybe not! If your tooth isn’t damaged enough for a full crown, but you prefer the strength and durability of a porcelain seal over composite resin, porcelain inlays and onlays may be just the restoration your smile needs.
Made of the finest dental porcelain, both inlays and onlays offer all the strength of a dental crown without the need for as much preparation.
- An inlay is generally used to repair inside the points of your tooth and may look a lot like a filling—only much less noticeable.
- An onlay covers a little bit more of your tooth, sometimes extending over a cusp or point, to ensure complete strength.
No matter which restoration you choose—inlay or onlay—they will look like your own tooth material, last for years and years, and bring your tooth back to ideal health!
We understand that life can be hard on teeth. Anything can happen: an accident, biting into something a little too hard, the last of that old metal filling finally giving way. When something major happens to your tooth, you want it fixed as fast as possible.
It hurts every time you chew, and, worse, if it isn’t fixed, you could wind up with an infection! If your tooth or teeth are broken, severely worn or decayed, or in need of a root canal, ask us about our beautiful dental crowns. Crowns can make any tooth feel as good as new because they create a strong, protective, and brand-new upper layer that looks and functions exactly like a natural tooth.
Crowns are ideal to:
- Restore a tooth to its original shape.
- Bring strength to a weakened or damaged tooth.
- Improve the appearance of a tooth.
We offer a variety of crowns to perfectly suit your needs including gorgeous metal-free crowns, porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns for biting surfaces that need extra strength, and even gold and e.Max ceramic!
Placing the crown takes just two easy visits. The first visit is to prepare the tooth and take molds for the creation of the crown. The crown is placed on the second visit. It’s that easy!
Whether you are missing one or a few teeth, you know how disruptive and embarrassing it can be. You need something to fill the gap! Our dental bridges may be just what you have been looking for.
Dental bridges are an attractive way to perfect your smile, help keep teeth from shifting, keep your mouth comfortable, allow you to eat with confidence and speak normally. A bridge works in the way the name suggests: a false tooth or teeth are placed between your own teeth and held in place with dental crowns or an implant post.
As with all of our restorations, each tooth and crown in your bridge is custom made and shaded to look completely natural in your smile. Unless you are using an implant post to retain the bridge, the process is about the same as having a crown placed.
- We simply take impressions of the area that needs to be repaired.
- Deliver those impressions to one of our trusted labs who will create your dental restorations to our exacting standards, and send you home with a temporary bridge.
- Once your beautiful, permanent bridge is completed, you will return for fitting and placement.
You will leave comfortable, confident, and smiling!
Dental implants are our most comfortable and functional way to replace missing teeth—in fact, they feel so much like your own, natural teeth that you can eat anything you want and care for them with just regular brushing and flossing. You never have to worry about removing them to soak or clean.
Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace your tooth root. They are surgically placed in your jawbone by an oral surgeon we’ll recommend to you. After the implant site has healed, you’ll return to our office to have the visible and chewing surface of your tooth restored with either a single dental crown or a set of dentures for replacing a whole set of teeth.
