Restorative Services:
  • "Tooth-colored Fillings" (Composite Restorations):
    Bonded composite fillings are not only beautiful, but with small cavities allow us to conserve more of your natural tooth structure; and with large cavities, because they are bonded to the tooth structure, often allow us to avoid the use of retentive pins which risk harming the pulp of the tooth.
  • Crowns:
    There are times when a tooth is too weak to be restored with a filling. Sometimes a crown (cap) is necessary to restore the tooth with a "protective umbrella" which holds the tooth together so weak portions do not break off later, causing potentially bigger problems.
  • Removable Partial Dentures:
    RPD's are a very reasonable and cost-efficient way to restore someone's ability to chew by replacing multiple teeth with one removable appliance.
  • Dental Implants:
    Implants are often the best way to replace missing teeth since they do not require altering any other teeth, as with a fixed bridge. They also do not add extra bulk in your mouth as is often the case with a RPD.
  • Fixed Bridges:
    A fixed bridge typically uses crowns that are cemented on either side of a space from a missing tooth to "permanently" secure a false tooth. Until the advent of Implants, bridges were more commonly done to replace missing teeth. However, there are still times when a fixed bridge may be the best option to replace a missing tooth.
  • Cosmetic Porcelain Veneers and Bonding:
    Unattractive teeth that are uneven or have spaces can be restored with bonded composites or porcelain veneers to achieve amazing aesthetic results.
  • Endodontic Treatment (Root Canal Treatment):
    Despite an undeserved reputation, root canal treatment is a wonderful and comfortable way to avoid or get you out of pain from an infected tooth pulp and allow you to keep your tooth.
  • Extractions:
    Sometimes a tooth cannot be saved and needs to be removed. It is often better to remove the tooth than let the problem fester and become much worse.
