Tooth Filling



Dental fillings are the best way to restore minor to moderate instances of tooth decay. Most fillings these days consist of a material known as composite resin. Composite resin is an aesthetically-pleasing material that we color-match to the existing shade of your enamel. For this reason, a composite filling is virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your tooth.



Inlays and Onlays



Inlays and onlays are ideal for areas of decay too large for a filling, but not large enough to require the placement of a dental crown. The restoration is considered an inlay if it is placed within the occlusal (bite) surface of a tooth. The restoration is considered an onlay if it extends beyond one or more of the occlusal cusps.



Porcelain Crown



A porcelain crown is a tooth-shaped cap placed over a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. Porcelain crowns are known for their natural look and durability, making them an excellent choice for both functional and aesthetic restoration. They are custom-made to match the color and contour of your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless blend with your smile.



Root Canal



A root canal is a procedure used to treat and save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected. During the treatment, the infected nerve and pulp are removed, and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. This procedure can relieve pain, prevent the spread of infection, and preserve the natural tooth, avoiding the need for extraction and maintaining your smile's integrity.



Tooth Extraction



There are two types of tooth extractions: simple and surgical. We perform a simple extraction on a tooth that has already erupted above the gumline. We will refer you to a trusted surgeon for complicated extractions or on a tooth that has become impacted, or has yet to erupt, such as wisdom teeth. Extraction may be necessary to prevent the spread of infection and other complications.



Dental Bridge



Dental bridges are a restorative solution designed to replace one or more missing teeth by literally bridging the gap between remaining teeth. Anchored by crowns on adjacent teeth or dental implants, the bridge consists of artificial teeth that restore function and appearance. Dental bridges help maintain the natural shape of your face, improve chewing and speaking, and prevent remaining teeth from shifting out of position, offering a durable and aesthetic solution for tooth loss.



Dental Implants



A dental implant is a small titanium post that we surgically embed into the jawbone. The implant serves as the root component of a prosthetic tooth. Once the implant is in place, it will fuse to the bone during the process of osseointegration. Osseointegration allows the implant to support a restoration against the strongest forces of your bite. For this reason, dental implants are widely considered to be the next best thing to your natural teeth.



All on 4 Implants



The All on 4 Treatment Concept is an innovative solution for replacing an entire arch of teeth using just four strategically placed dental implants. This procedure provides a stable and secure foundation for a full set of prosthetic teeth, offering a natural look and feel. All on 4 Implants can restore your smile and improve oral function, often completed in a single day, making it a popular choice for those seeking a quick and effective full-mouth restoration.



Dentures



A denture is a removable appliance that is usually used to replace one or more missing teeth. A partial denture usually attaches to the surrounding teeth with metal clasps. A complete denture consists of a flesh-colored acrylic base that supports a complete arch of prosthetic teeth. We offer custom-fit dentures as a more comfortable, functional, and durable solution.
