Restorative Services

We offer many restorative services for cracked, broken, decayed or missing teeth. We can restore or replace existing dentistry to improve your appearance, function, and comfort. We fill cavities with tooth-colored fillings and crowns which may be recommended to protect your teeth and improve your appearance. If you need to replace a single tooth or several missing teeth, we offer dental implants which provide a permanent and aesthetically pleasing alternative to bridgework or dentures.

When you first visit us, we will take an hour to examine your dental condition with digital x-rays, and a thorough dental and oral cancer exam.  At this time, we will note any “fillings” or other restorations you may need.  Old dentistry does wear out and cause further damage to your teeth, so we will note what old fillings or other restorations need replacement.   We use tooth-colored material that is carefully placed whenever possible.  Sometimes a tooth is broken down to the point that it needs a crown or a “cap” to hold it together for the years to come.

You may have missing teeth and often, through careful planning, we can replace that missing tooth with an implant or a “bridge.”   Together we will assess the situation and work on a treatment plan that will be satisfying and long-lasting.

Through all treatment, we work very hard to make your dental visit comfortable.  We have a computerized method of numbing you up that, whenever possible, places the anesthetic where we need it with little or no discomfort.   We also offer nitrous oxide gas which can help very anxious folks to relax and get the necessary treatment done on their teeth and our wonderful assistants are very capable of adding to all your comfort needs during any procedure.

Our practice tries to go beyond just fixing teeth, but we always make sure that the basic need of getting dental work done is as comfortable as possible.
