Review our restorative therapies and replacement teeth options here:

Dental Crowns

Fashioned from precious metal, all-porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal, a crown covers the entire tooth above the gum line. It is molded and usually colored to look natural, and covers such things as blemishes, cracks, or partial tooth loss. The crown is cemented over the natural tooth to restore its look and protect it from further damage.

Dentures & Partials

Full dentures are prostheses, false teeth, that are designed to replace your entire set of teeth. They are either attached to a fitted, gum-colored plate, or to dental implants. The plate is molded to fit your mouth precisely and only occasionally needs any adhesives. Partial dentures, or "partials", are prosthetic replacements for a few missing teeth, instead of one or both entire arches.

Fixed Bridges

A fixed bridge  has crowns affixed to the teeth on either side of a missing tooth with replacement tooth anchored between them.  In addition to replacing a missing tooth, a fixed bridge can help hold the adjacent teeth firmly in place.

Full-Mouth Reconstruction

Full mouth reconstruction repairs and restores the smiles of people with multiple issues. . It can draw on a variety of procedures to restore your teeth and gums to a better aesthetic and functional state getting you healthy again. Each reconstruction is customized to the patient's specific needs, and may include such methods as periodontal care, crowns, dentures or partials, fillings, or teeth-straightening devices.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that allow you to replace missing teeth that  can function just like your own. Dental Implants are actually fused to your own jaw just like your natural teeth roots were. They allow you to restore your teeth in a way that is closest to mother nature.

Inlays & Onlays

Similar in function to crowns, inlays and onlays protect the top as well as the inside of a tooth using materials that are more durable than resin composite fillings. While strengthening the tooth  They are a much more conservative repair solution than crowns and we try to use them whenever we can.

Root Canals

When the interior portion of the tooth is damaged by decay or injury the dental pulp, which contains the nerve of the tooth, is contaminated and gets infected. Root canal therapy treats this infection so that the body can heal. Despite the bad reputation, root canal therapy can be done with patient comfort and with a high degree of success and effectiveness. Millions of teeth have been saved by treating pulpal infections instead of extracting the tooth. This treatment is no longer something to be feared. It is yet another a method of helping you restore the health of your teeth and body.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings  are made of composite resins that are colored to match your natural teeth and they actually bond to your natural tooth. Besides looking better, they seal the tooth against decay and they do not swell, expand or leak like black mercury fillings do. These modern materials allow repairs that were never possible before.
