Restorative Dentistry

Chipped, misshaped or decayed teeth quite often are as painful as they are unsightly. New techniques and state-of-the-art dental materials can be used to restore the structure and function of your teeth AND dramatically enhance your smile, thus your overall appearance.

While silver amalgam and gold fillings are not used as frequently as in the past, they can still serve as strong, durable materials especially for back teeth.

Today we commonly use composites: bonded, tooth-colored fillings which blend so well with your own teeth, they are the first choice to restore chipped or decayed teeth because they offer such a pleasing, natural look.

Crowns are restorations that are placed over teeth because the tooth requires maximum support and lacks sufficient underlying tooth structure.

Crowns are often the recommended treatment of choice when teeth have large fillings with little remaining tooth structure; after a root canal or for fractured or misshaped teeth. Root canal treatment may be recommended for teeth that have an infected or damaged nerve.

In the past, fixed bridges, removable partial or complete dentures, have most commonly replaced missing teeth. Though these options are still quite common, dental implants have become an important option to tooth replacement because they look and feel so natural. Today, in many cases, implants can be a better option than complete or partial dentures. Dental implants can also augment complete dentures to increase stability for dentures that are ill-fitting or constantly loose.
