Do one or more of your teeth need to be repaired or replaced, or are you suffering from chronic toothaches? Decay and injuries to your teeth can cause long term health problems if they aren’t treated. We offer dental restoration treatments to repair your teeth and restore them to back to normal.
A cavity is formed when the bacteria in dental plaque erodes a hole in the enamel of one of your teeth. Because the cavity leaves your tooth exposed to further decay, you will need a filling to repair the hole. We provide white dental fillings that blend in with your tooth and form a strong protective barrier against further damage and decay.
An inlay functions in a similar way as a filling, but unlike a filling it is created outside your mouth in a dental lab and placed in your tooth. We use inlays to restore parts of your teeth that are too damaged to support a filling, but are not so damaged that you require a crown. Inlays also provide more structural support to your teeth than fillings.
Onlays are a restoration similar to inlays, except they are more extensive and usually restore the biting surfaces of your tooth.
If a tooth becomes badly decayed or is damaged, it may present a risk for harmful infection. If the tooth isn’t protected by a crown the risk of fracture or infection could spread the pulp of the tooth and you could lose the tooth. To prevent this, we place a porcelain crown over the damaged tooth to restore it to full function and protect it from further damage. Our crowns are designed to look and feel just like a natural tooth.
Dental bridges are used to restore a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth in a row. They provide strong replacement teeth that are bonded to the natural teeth on either side of the gap left by the missing tooth or teeth. When you are fitted with a bridge, we will place crowns over the teeth adjacent to the gap, and then fix one or more synthetic teeth to the crowns with a bridge.
CEREC restorations are high-quality ceramic crowns, inlays, onlays and veneers that are produced by our in-office CEREC computer-assisted system. Using CEREC, we can take impressions of your mouth digitally (without using uncomfortable impression trays) and produce a restoration in the same appointment. CEREC restorations are designed and colored to match your smile perfectly.
