Dental Crowns & Bridges
When teeth are too damaged to receive a dental filling, a dental crown is the best solution to restore its functionality and esthetics at the same time. Each crown we create is highly customized to fit your tooth, keep your bite even, and make chewing the foods you love feel natural. We also use natural-looking materials so that your crown doesn’t stand out in your smile. If you need to have a tooth replaced, we can create a bridge which fills the gap in your smile and relies on neighboring teeth to remain stable.
Silver fillings were the standard for restoring teeth and typically used metals like nickel, amalgam mercury, and copper to remain durable. However, composite resin materials can be just as effective at restoring teeth, all without using any metal in the process. In fact, they are actually easier to mold inside of teeth, reducing the need for modifying your current tooth just to accommodate the filling. Most dental fillings can be placed in one appointment and last for 10 years.
CEREC One-Visit Crowns
If you needed a crown in the past, you likely had to wait about two weeks just to have it created. You also had to bite into gray, putty-like impression material just to get it accurately made. With CEREC, these cumbersome steps are no longer necessary. In just one hour, you can get your permanent crown made and placed in our office – no temporary crown, no impression materials and no waiting period required.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
If you suffer from severe tooth loss, full and partial dentures can help you replace your smile in a comprehensive way while paying an affordable price. Each denture, whether it’s for partially or fully restoring your smile, is fabricated using natural-looking dental materials like porcelain and acrylic. Each denture is customized to fit the shape of your mouth and replace each missing tooth exactly, so you can expand your diet and smile with confidence.
