Restorative

 

White Filling

A tooth-colored resin composite material that blends compatibly with the shade of the tooth. While not as durable as a silver amalgam filling, it can be used to restore smaller cavities and replace chipped, or broken areas especially in the front part of the mouth.

Silver filling

More durable than white fillings and is used to restore larger cavities in the back part of the mouth. Silver has been used successfully in dentistry for over 150 years.

Bridges

Dental bridges are 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. Bridges are made from gold, metal, alloys, or porcelain to ensure that they are strong and durable.

 

Crown / caps

When large metallic or white fillings begin to fail, a crown made from ceramic can restore original strength and blend beautifully with adjacent teeth.

Root Canal

A procedure to relieve tooth pain and the infection often associated with it. The pulp (soft tissue / nerves) deep within the tooth and roots is removed. This space is then disinfected and then filled with a plastic material.

Bonding

A tooth-colored resin composite material bonded to the natural tooth to improve its shape, size or color. This is a popular method to enhance the aesthetics of a smile.

 

Porcelain Laminates

A thin, porcelain coating that covers the front of a tooth to change its shape, size or color, providing a natural color and translucency.

TEETH WHITENING

Creates a more appealing, youthful smile while lessening the appearance of flaws, dental office whitening is a safe, effective way to enhance the aesthetics of the teeth you have.

Dentures / partials

These are prosthetic devices made to replace missing teeth. The devices use the teeth and gums for their support. Today implants are discussed as part of this treatment in order to afford the patient a more stable, secure, and comfortable fit.
