Dentists repair decayed teeth using such techniques as placing fillings, crowns, partial crowns, bridges, etc. Our doctors are esthetic dentists who factor in the total effect on your smile of whatever work you need done.
In terms of fillings, our doctors generally place white composite fillings which look most natural, are mercury free and comfortable for you.
If the damage to your tooth is more extensive, our doctors choose to protect a tooth by covering it with a porcelain crown, also known as a cap. This protection distributes stress to the tooth in a more favorable manner, which in turn makes it stronger and more long-lasting.
If you have a missing tooth or teeth, our doctors might suggest a dental bridge. For a long time, bridges were one of dentistry’s few solutions for a missing tooth. Our doctors are experts at restoring your mouth to its proper alignment and your smile to its natural brilliance.
Dental implants are another newer aspect of restorative dentistry, typically used for people who have wither lost teeth or are going to need teeth extracted. This process provides an artificial tooth to replace what is or will be missing. Although the implant option has only really achieved popularity in the last 20 years, implants are probably the best way for a restorative dentist to replace teeth that are missing or have a poor prognosis.
