Despite your best intentions, your teeth are still vulnerable to cavities, infection, and fractures. Fortunately, we have access to the modern techniques and technology that make it possible to restore smiles back to complete health. Our advanced restorative procedures can return the teeth to their normal shapes, natural appearances and proper functions.

If your teeth are in need of restorative treatments, you can trust us to always explain your options and recommend the treatment that is most comfortable and least invasive.

Dental Crowns and Bridges

A weak, broken, or damaged tooth can be restored or rebuilt with the complete coverage of a dental crown. Capping or encasing the tooth with a crown enables us to return the tooth to its original shape and size while increasing its strength and esthetic appeal.

Whereas a dental crown provides coverage for a single tooth, a traditional bridge is a series of 3 or more conjoined crowns. With two crowns anchored to natural teeth, a middle crown can be connected to fill the empty space between the teeth created by a missing tooth.

Crowns and bridges are commonly made of porcelain fused to a strong metal base.  This combination of materials enables us to create a restoration that is durable but also natural-looking. All porcelain crowns and bridges are also becoming more popular as a metal-free alternative to the traditional restorations.  Porcelain is an ideal restorative material thanks to its ability to mimic the texture, shape, and color of natural enamel for a long-lasting and beautiful smile.

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and Onlays are the happy medium between a resin filling and a full crown. An otherwise healthy tooth that has suffered moderate damage can be preserved with these strong, conservative restorations. Inlays and Onlays are made of porcelain or gold which is stronger than resin filling materials. These restorations are custom-made in a dental laboratory in a manner that is similar to dental crowns although they are smaller in size.

Don’t Postpone Your Restorative Treatment

Cavities and other dental problems are typically simple to resolve when they are treated in a timely manner. However, when treatment is delayed, saving the tooth can become more complicated, more expensive, and less predictable.
