Tooth-colored fillings are most commonly used to fill in a tooth after we remove a cavity or to replace a broken or cracked filling if it falls out. They are made from a composite resin material that unlike traditional silver fillings, can be color-matched to your other teeth for a seamless finish.
Many people wonder which is better — crowns vs. veneers. The answer depends on how much restoration needs done. Unlike veneers, crowns cover your entire tooth and are a diverse restorative treatment that can be used to replace missing teeth, support weak teeth, protect cracked or chipped teeth, and more. They are custom-made to match the size, shape, and color of your teeth, so most people won’t even be able to tell the difference—even you!
Missing teeth or facing a broken tooth extraction? If you’re missing one tooth or multiple teeth in a row, bridges can fill in your smile. They are a prosthesis, with false (but natural-looking) teeth, that attaches to your existing teeth on either side of the gap for support. Bridges can also be fixed into place with dental implant crowns.
Missing teeth or face a broken tooth extraction? Custom, handcrafted dentures can replace most or all of your missing or broken teeth. A denture is a plastic, gum-colored base with artificial teeth attached around the arch. It can be secured with strong denture adhesive or snapped into place with four or more dental implant crowns.
We create beautiful, natural-looking crowns, bridges, and dentures to attach to dental implants. Our team can also restore any cracked or broken tooth restorations you may have in order to get you back to enjoying your best smile.
While root canals may sound intimidating, it’s actually nothing to fear. If you have a severely damaged or infected tooth, we can perform gentle root canal therapy to clean out, disinfect, and preserve your natural tooth. Root canals are common if you have a broken or cracked filling, or you need a broken tooth extraction.
First and foremost, we always strive to save your natural teeth — even if you have a damaged or chipped tooth. That’s always a priority in the dental care we provide families. However, there are some circumstances in which other restorative treatments aren’t viable and the best choice is to remove a tooth. If a broken tooth extraction is necessary, we’ll thoroughly numb the area so that the most you feel is slight pressure during the process. Then we can replace the tooth with a bridge, dental implant crown, or other tooth replacement alternative.
