What We Offer

Fillings

When a tooth needs a restoration, a composite resin filling can be an effective, good-looking choice. Resin fillings are a great way to restore teeth, especially the ones in the front of your mouth. We can choose the color of the resin material to match or enhance your teeth for a beautiful and natural-looking smile.

Root Canals

Root canal therapy saves your tooth, prevents the spread of infection, and helps you maintain the health of your mouth. When the pulp layer of a tooth becomes infected, it is necessary to remove the infection with root canal therapy. It is a generally comfortable procedure that saves your tooth and gives you back your healthy smile.

Surgery

An extraction is sometimes the best treatment choice for preventing many future dental problems. Depending on your situation, these problems might include the risk of infection, the spread of periodontal disease, cysts in the jawbone, or severely crowded or misaligned teeth. Generally, we recommend treatments that will save teeth, but when a tooth is so damaged that it cannot be saved, extraction is the best choice.

Porcelain Crowns

As you age, your smile naturally ages. The most noticeable problems occur when you have old fillings, tooth decay, cracked or missing teeth. Sometimes you may even develop black lines around your old crowns. These changes can have a significant impact on the health and function of your smile, not to mention your appearance. A porcelain crown is used to cover and strengthen individual teeth that are structurally weakened. It protects the entire surface of the tooth, restoring it to its original shape and size.

Porcelain Bridges

A porcelain bridge is a custom device that is anchored to neighboring teeth to replace one or more missing teeth. When a lost tooth is replaced with a bridge, the teeth on either side of the missing one are prepared as crowns to hold the artificial replacement tooth in place. Porcelain material is the most popular choice because it is durable and maintains the natural look of your smile.

Dental Implant Crowns

A dental implant is an excellent treatment for replacing missing teeth. A root form implant is the most common kind of dental implant. It is a small, titanium post that replaces the roots of a missing tooth. A custom-fitted artificial tooth, called a restoration, is secured to the implant, which holds the restoration firmly in place.
