Fillings

We offer both silver filling and Tooth Colored filling. Tooth-colored fillings are made from durable plastics called composite resins. Similar in color and texture to natural teeth, the fillings are less noticeable, and much more attractive, than other types of fillings.

Crowns

When too much of a tooth is decayed or broken away, it is best restored with a crown. A crown is a tooth-shaped cover placed over a tooth that is badly damaged or decayed. A crown is made to look like your tooth. Many people call it a cap. Crowns may be placed for several reasons. Usually the tooth has been broken or damaged a great deal by decay. As a result, a filling can't replace enough of the tooth or make the tooth strong enough. A crown may hold together parts of a cracked tooth. It also can be used to hold a bridge in place. Crowns can be used to improve appearance as well. They may be placed to cover misshapen or badly discolored teeth

Onlays and Inlays

Replacing large fillings on back teeth often require a stronger and properly contoured restoration. These are called inlays or onlays depending on their size. These restorations need to be custom-made at an off-site dental lab and two visits may be required. Once the dental office receives the custom inlay or onlay, the patient returns to the dentist’s office, where they are bonded into place. Onlays protect teeth similarly as crowns but conserve more natural tooth structure.

Bridges

When single or multiple teeth are missing, they can be replaced with either fixed or removable bridges. Bridges literally "bridge" the gaps left by missing teeth with restorations. Bridges restore your ability to bite and chew, and also restore the shape of your face. Bridges are strong and natural-looking. Fixed bridges are restorations that are held firmly into place because they are bonded onto neighboring teeth. They are very durable, and can only be removed by a dentist.

Full Dentures & Partial Dentures

When too many teeth are missing, dentures are a good solution to completely restore your smile and your biting and chewing ability. We offer full and partial denture services. Full dentures are useful if you have lost all or nearly all of your teeth. They slide over your gums and are held in place by the muscles of your cheeks, lips, and tongue. Though you may require a little time to get used to them, dentures should, after a few weeks, help you eat, talk, and smile normally. Partial dentures consist of a removable metal or plastic structure to which artificial teeth are attached. If you are missing a number of teeth, a partial denture can fill in the gaps and restore your smile.

Root Canals Therapy

When the pulp that is inside the tooth becomes infected, it cannot repair itself. Years ago, extraction was the only option. Today, through root canal therapy, also known as "endodontics," these teeth can be saved. Root canal therapy consists of drilling through the top, or "crown," of the tooth, and then reshaping or removing the pulp that has become infected. The tooth is then filled and sealed with an artificial crown.

Dental Impants Restorations

Implants are devices that replace the roots of missing teeth. They are used to support crowns , bridges or dentures. Implants are placed in your jawbone by surgery. Most of the time, implants feel more natural and secure than other methods of replacing missing teeth, such as dentures.
