When a tooth is damaged by decay or dental trauma, we restore its strength, function, and appearance with restorative dentistry. As a practice that specializes in cosmetic dentistry, we take a biomimetic approach to restorative work. This means that we want your restored tooth to look and function as naturally as possible. We embrace the latest dental technologies, but also act conservatively to save as much of your healthy tooth structure as possible.
Our restorative procedures include:
After we remove areas of decay, composite fillings are used to repair teeth with cavities. Unlike traditional amalgam fillings, composite fillings are made with a tooth-colored material to blend in perfectly with the rest of your smile.
Inlays and Onlays
When a tooth has more damage than can be repaired with a filling, but not enough to merit a full crown, we use an inlay or onlay. Also known as a partial crown, inlays and onlays can be made from a gold alloy or we can use the glidewell.io system to create a durable tooth-colored restoration.
Crowns are used when a tooth is cracked, broken, worn down, or severely decayed. We remove all areas of damage, leaving behind the healthy tooth structure. Then, a crown is used to protect the remaining natural tooth. We offer same-visit crowns using glidewell.io technology.
Dental bridges replace missing teeth by using adjacent teeth to hold a restoration in place. The most common type of dental bridge involves placing crowns on the teeth on either side of the gap; these teeth are known as abutments, while the restorations that are replacing the missing teeth are called pontics.
Dental implants are the best solution for missing teeth because they are the only option that replaces the teeth both above and below the gum line. Dental implant restorations are comfortable, stable, and natural-looking.
Dentures are used to replace multiple missing teeth on the same arch. Unlike crowns and bridges, dentures do not need the support of an existing tooth structure. Dentures can be full or partial; removable or fixed; and traditional or implant-supported.
