Our doctors work hard to create beautiful and life like fillings to help fix our patient’s cavities. With today’s technologies, our doctors can fix these cavities painlessly in one appointment. Our tooth colored fillings are bonded to your teeth and disappear. They look just like natural teeth!
Teeth that have extensive decay or are damaged by trauma may need to be restored with a dental crown. If there is too much natural tooth missing to ensure proper strength and function with a filling, a crown is the most common option for restoration. A crown is a “cap” cemented onto an existing tooth that usually covers the portion of your tooth above the gum line. In effect, the crown becomes your tooth’s new outer surface.
A bridge may be used to replace missing teeth, help maintain the shape of your face, and alleviate stress on your bite. A bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, looks great, and literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been. Your bridge can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials and is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support. The success of any bridge depends on its foundation — the other teeth, gums, or bone to which it is attached. Therefore, it’s very important to keep your existing teeth, gums, and jaw healthy and strong.
