Restorative dentistry treatments save teeth, fix damage, and provide replacements if a tooth has been lost. If your tooth has become infected, chipped, cracked, decayed, or lost, we have a restorative dentistry treatment that can improve your smile.
Some of our Restorative Dentistry treatments include:
Dental Cleanings and Checkups
It is recommended for patients to come into our office every six month for teeth cleanings and a check up with your dentist. Our knowledgable dentists will make sure that your teeth and your smile are healthy. They will check for cavities and make sure that your teeth feel comfortable, and look great! Dental cleanings remove the build-up that may have started to accumulate around your teeth and will help lower the risk of gum disease all the while keeping your smile clean and fresh.
At our office, we take x-rays of your teeth to check for any potential problems. We use high quality technology in a digital format to both minimize exposure to radiation and to ensure the health of your teeth. Is there is a problem with your teeth, the earlier the problem is detected, the earlier it can be treated. With early treatment, we minimize several risks and reduce the likelihood of more complicated procedures.
When you have a cavity, we offer composite fillings. Fillings remove the decay and replace the affected tooth structure. Cavities can be painful and can lead to more cavities and future dental problems. With our fillings we can avoid these problems and help your smile feel clean, healthy and comfortable.
We also offer sealants, bonding, and non-surgical gum treatments. At our practice, we believe the best way to solve dental problems is to prevent them from happening in the first place. For this reason, our General Dentistry practices are tailored towards prevention, and helping our patients enjoy fantastic oral health now and in the future.
Before Dental Crowns were invented, teeth that became damaged had to be extracted. Now with dental crowns, we can preserve your natural teeth and protect them from future damage and decay. Our beautiful porcelain crowns cover your teeth and look and feel completely natural.
Our Crowns are crafted from a beautiful, tooth-like porcelain. The porcelain perfectly mimics the shade and translucence of your natural teeth. Porcelain Crowns don’t get cavities and can protect teeth from suffering any future damage. Our Crowns are crafted specifically for each patient. Each crown is unique and designed to provide you with perfect occlusion and comfort as well as a natural look and feel.
Using a series of dental crowns, we can replace your lost teeth. A Dental Bridge is a group of crowns that bridges a gap in your mouth, and fills it with a beautiful, functional crown. Dental Bridges are an affordable option for tooth replacement and allow patients to eat, smile, and speak comfortably again.
A Dental Bridge is a group of three or more crowns that can be used to fix a gap left by a missing tooth. Crowns are attached to teeth adjacent to the gap, and the crown or crowns in between are cemented to the crowns attached to the adjacent teeth in order to fill the gap. Dental Bridges are a great affordable option for patients who have lost one or more teeth.
Our dental crowns and Dental Bridges are a great restorative dentistry option. Dental crowns look and feel completely natural. They are comfortable in your mouth and can be cared for just like your regular teeth. To care for your dental crowns, all you need to do is floss and brush them regularly.
We offer beautiful implant supported Dentures, and traditional Denture options for our patients who are missing all or most of their teeth. Losing your natural teeth doesn’t have to be the end of your smile! Our Dentures allow patients to enjoy day to day activities again with artificial teeth that are fully functional and beautiful.

Root Canal Therapy
Every tooth in your mouth has a pulp chamber in the center. Endodontics is the dental specialty concerned with the study and treatment of the dental pulp within the center of your teeth. The nerves in your teeth travel from the pulp chambers down small canals in your tooth roots. When the pulp in your tooth’s pulp chamber gets infected, it can affect these nerves and cause you a serious chronic toothache. If you are suffering from an agonizing toothache that won’t go away, it might be a sign that you require Root Canal therapy.
Root Canals are performed on teeth that have suffered serious damage that has reached the pulp chamber. Before Root Canals were performed, these teeth had to be extracted. A Root Canal allows patients to keep their teeth, and it soothes and relieves the toothaches. Patients who are suffering from a terrible toothache are distracted by it, and can’t enjoy regular day to day activities. The toothache can keep them from sleeping, and eating. Root Canals provide patients with relief, and allows them to enjoy themselves and feel comfortable and healthy again.
When a root canal is performed, a dentist will first clean out the infected area. The primary objective of this process is to clean deep into the tooth and remove all of the infection from the pulp chamber. Once the infection has been removed and the tooth has been completely sterilized on the inside, he will fill in the tooth, and finish by placing a porcelain crown. The porcelain crown will protect your tooth from further infection, and will allow you to enjoy a confident beautiful smile. Our porcelain crowns look and feel just like your regular teeth and are crafted for perfect occlusion.
Dental Implants are artificial teeth that include a synthetic tooth root. They allow patients to enjoy all of the benefits of a full and healthy smile, and they keep your jawbone healthy and strong. Dental Implants are a fantastic option for patients who have lost teeth, especially because they can last a lifetime. For more details on Dental Implants, click here.
