Restorative dental care replaces a section or creates a complete tooth and is accomplished by a variety of methods described below.
Fillings to match the natural color of the tooth are made of composite or porcelain, and have become much preferred over silver and gold. We use all of these materials to replace a portion of a tooth damaged by trauma or decay.
Crowns, also know as caps, cover all of the tooth that is visible in the mouth and can be made to match the color of the surrounding teeth.
A bridge is a series of crowns that connects neighboring teeth to replace a missing tooth.
Dental Implants are used as an alternative to a bridge to replace a missing tooth. The dental implant replaces the root of a missing tooth, looks like a natural tooth and does not require disturbing the surrounding natural teeth.
A removable partial replaces a large number of missing teeth. A precision fit and attachment to the remaining natural teeth produces a natural healthy smile.
Removable dentures replace all of the missing upper or lower teeth. Restorative dental care can sometimes be accomplished in stages, spread out over time, to accommodate the patient’s finances or tolerance for treatment. We are sensitive to your needs. We will keep you smiling.
