We restore function and appearance to teeth that have been damaged by decay or injury, or that have been broken off or lost. Most restorations are designed to match the color and shape of your existing teeth.
Cavities are caused when tooth decay penetrates the enamel of your tooth and creates a small hole. If the cavity isn’t filled, the decay will gradually make the hole larger until the pulp of the tooth is exposed, resulting in the possible loss of the tooth.
Tooth-colored fillings blend with the natural shade of your tooth and protect it from further decay.
Dental crowns fit over a damaged tooth to completely restore it. They are used for teeth that are cracked, to restore a tooth after root canal treatment, or to restore a tooth that has been badly damaged by decay.
Crowns are made from a variety of materials depending on your individual needs and budget. Tooth-colored porcelain or ceramic crowns blend with the rest of your natural smile.
Inlays and onlays are similar to fillings but they are used in situations where a cavity is too large or a tooth is unable to support a filling. These restorations are produced in a dental laboratory and then cemented into your tooth. When they are placed they look like fillings.
Onlays restore the biting surfaces of your teeth, and inlays restore the non-biting surfaces.
Dental bridges are a common replacement for lost teeth. They consist of a replacement tooth, or multiple replacement teeth in a row, that is attached to the natural teeth on either side of the gap left by the missing teeth.
Bridges restore the appearance and function of your mouth. They also stabilize the natural teeth on either side of the gap and prevent them from shifting.
