TOOTH COLORED FILLINGS
Tooth colored fillings are an obvious improvement over unsightly silver amalgam fillings. The materials and application process give long lasting, functional, and beautiful results.
Crowns are often referred to as a Cap because the entire tooth above the gum line is covered. Your teeth are a living part of your body. Over time our teeth can begin to weaken and become more susceptible to problems such as decay, cracks, fractures, and discoloration. To restore the tooth to full strength and chewing function, a crown may be prescribed.
If you are missing a tooth, we recommend having it replaced as soon as possible. Besides the aesthetic disadvantage of a missing tooth, it will cause structural changes in your mouth and jaw over time, as well as making it difficult to eat or speak properly.
A Dental Bridge is a great way to replace missing teeth. Your existing teeth are used to literally create a bridge to cross the area where your tooth is missing.
FULL and PARTIAL DENTURES
Dentures are a replacement for missing teeth that can be removed and put back into your mouth as you please. Some patients do very well with dentures. For others, dentures are a foreign item to the mouth and will take some time to get used to.
Dental Implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth. They allow you to live the way you want to – confidently eating, smiling, laughing, talking, kissing, and enjoying all of your everyday activities without worrying about your teeth.
We will refer you to one of our implant specialists for placement of your dental implant. After the healing process, will we perform the final, beautiful, and strong restoration. This may be a single crown, or a full implant retained denture.
Sometimes a tooth simply cannot be saved and will need to be extracted. When appropriate, we will review tooth replacement options with you should you require an extraction. We can perform most extractions in our office, limiting your need for a specialist referral. In some cases, we may need to refer you to one of our Specialist Partners.
