Unlike traditional fillings, which are made of amalgam and always stick out in the mouth, tooth-colored fillings consist of composite resin that is specially matched to a patient’s enamel. This means it seamlessly blends with the rest of the tooth. The resin is also more malleable than amalgam, so it can be fitted into smaller spaces, allowing us to preserve more healthy enamel while placing it. This creates a stronger, longer-lasting repair.
If a tooth has a large cavity or is severely broken, we can save it from extraction and help it look like new again with a dental crown. Designed to look like fresh, unblemished teeth, these restorations are fitted over compromised enamel to bring back their original appearance and strength. We offer porcelain, zirconia, Emax, and gold crowns, allowing a patient to choose the material that best suits their needs and budget.
If you’re missing one or more consecutive teeth, we provide dental bridges to help you enjoy a complete smile once again. The artificial teeth are supported by dental crowns placed on the remaining healthy teeth on either side of the gap. With a dental bridge, you’ll regain the ability to chew, speak, and grin without worry! Depending on your needs and goals, you can get a dental bridge that’s removable or anchored firmly into place using dental implants.
