Dental crowns are used to restore broken teeth, to protect weak or cracked teeth, and to support teeth with large fillings in them.
Fillings are used to repair defects in teeth caused by cavities and fractures in the tooth. Composite filings use a mixture of resins and fine particles that mimic the color of natural teeth. During your comprehensive dental exam, if our team finds a cavity or other defect in a tooth, a composite filling may be recommended.
Dental bridges are natural-looking dental appliances that can replace a section of missing teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of your teeth as well as the proper bite relationship between upper and lower teeth.
There are several types of fixed dental bridges (cannot be removed), including conventional fixed bridges, cantilever bridges and resin-bonded bridges. Some bridges are removable and can be cleaned by the wearer; others need to be removed by a dentist.
Bridges are sometimes referred to as fixed partial dentures, because they are semi-permanent and are bonded to existing teeth or implants.
Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace the roots of missing teeth. They are inserted into your jawbone during a minor surgical procedure that takes place in the dental office. After the implant has been placed in your jawbone, a completely lifelike porcelain tooth crown is attached. In some cases, the implant needs to fuse with the bone for several months before it is permanently crowned; in other cases, you can have new (but temporary) teeth the same day your implants are placed.
To place the implant, we will refer you to one of our trusted local specialists. For restoration of the implant crown, we will perform any needed repairs right in our office.
Full or partial tooth loss, if left untreated, doesn't just affect a person's self-image, it can also increase the risk of developing nutritional problems and other systemic health disorders. Fortunately, there's a reliable and time-tested method for treating this condition: full or partial dentures.
If you require dentures, we can take care of you right in our dental office. First, an accurate impression (mold) is made of the alveolar ridges on the top and bottom of your mouth. The base of the denture is made from this mold in a dental laboratory. Working together, the dentist and lab technician choose from among many different sizes and shapes of prosthetic teeth to re-create a natural-looking smile. When everyone is satisfied with the result, the temporary dentures are made in permanent form.
