Daily habits take a toll on our oral health and sometimes a restorative dental treatment is the best option. Our team has an eye for restorative dentistry and providing you with a fully-functional, beautiful smile.

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped restorations designed to cap severely damaged teeth or, in conjunction with a dental implant, replace them altogether. If your natural tooth is still in place, we’ll remove the infected portion and shape it to accommodate a dental crown. Once the tooth has been modified, we’ll take impressions and send them off to have your custom crown created. Then, we’ll permanently attach the crown to your natural tooth and your smile will be fully functional once more.
Dental bridges are composed of two or more dental crowns with false teeth in between. As the name suggests, this restorative piece is designed to bridge the gap left behind by missing teeth. The crowns will be attached to the teeth or implants surrounding your gap, and the false teeth will fit perfectly in the empty space. The appointment process for making your custom bridge is precisely the same as making a dental crown.
A long withstanding treatment for tooth replacement, dentures are quite recognizable. However, technology has improved the way dentures look and fit, making them more comfortable than ever before. This prosthesis is composed of a gum-like acrylic base with false teeth attached. We have options for both full and partial dentures to replace an entire row of teeth or even just a few.
Root Canal Therapy
If you have a tooth suffering from severe decay, root canal therapy can restore it and potentially save you from an extraction. Though it has a reputation for being a stressful procedure, it is extremely common and has a very high success rate. First, we’ll drill a small hole in the tooth to give us access to the infected portion. Once this is removed, we’ll thoroughly clean the canal and seal the tooth to prevent further infection. If necessary, a dental crown may be placed to support the tooth’s structure.
While our team works diligently to create a treatment plan that avoids extraction, there are some cases where removing the tooth is the best option. If this is the case for you, we’ll thoroughly numb the area and make the process as comfortable and stress-free as possible. When discussing your treatment plan, we’ll thoroughly go over the tooth replacement options available to you after the extraction is complete.
