Restorative Dentistry

We provide comprehensive restorative procedures for patients who suffer from common oral health problems such as gum disease and tooth loss. These procedures, along with prescribed preventive and any necessary cosmetic care, can restore or improve your smile and overall oral health.

Procedures

Dental bridges
Dental bridges are used to fill the space created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is usually comprised of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap (called abutment teeth) and features false teeth in between.

Endodontics
The most common type of endodontic treatments involves root canals. A root canal is performed when the pulp inside a tooth becomes inflamed or infected. The pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned, filled, and sealed.

Implants
Dental implants act as replacement roots for damaged or lost teeth. Implants provide a strong foundation for permanent or removable replacement teeth (dentures or bridges) that are custom made to match your existing teeth.

Crowns
A dental crown is a cap that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance. The crown, when cemented, fully encases the visible portion of a tooth. When done correctly, no one should notice that you have a crown at all.

Full and partial dentures
Denture are a removable replacements for missing teeth and other tissues that help restore your smile. Complete dentures are used when all teeth are missing. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
