Services Overview

Restoration Fillings -A bonding is a composite resin that is used as an alternative to amalgams and veneers. This is an excellent cosmetic option for those patients who do not want the look of silver in their mouths and do not want the expense of veneers.

Bridges - A bridge is one of the few options that you have when deciding how to deal with a missing tooth or teeth.  The replacement of these missing teeth is necessary in order to maintain the proper mouth functions.  Tooth loss can affect the way you eat, speak, and the alignment of other teeth in your mouth.

Crowns - As we get a little older, our teeth begin to change and are prone to decay.   There are many possible reasons for this change in your smile.  These reasons can include bruxism (teeth grinding), general decay, cracked fillings, root canals, and many others.

 

Dental Procedures

Bridge Procedure
The procedure begins with preparation of the natural teeth, or abutments.  We will shape the abutment teeth so that the ends of the bridge will fit comfortably on each one.  The next step is to take an impression of the area.  This impression will be sent to our lab where your new restoration will be crafted.  While this new tooth is created, we will provide you with a temporary restoration. 
Crown Procedure
When we have decided to go ahead with a full crown restoration, we will set aside 2-3 appointments for the entire process.  Although the majority of crowns are completed in two visits, there is sometimes a need for a third visit to ensure a proper fit.
