Restorative dentistry options encompasses basically any destruction of the tooth that needs to be restored back to its original condition. That could be anywhere from you coming in, a patient coming in and needing just a few fill ins done. We use all white bonded fill ins that match the tooth. We use different shades to make sure that you can't see the fill ins when you look in your mouth or when you smile.
Also, we have some patients that come in and have had a lot of break down of their mouths over the years. Maybe they grind their teeth a lot, maybe they've had a lot of patchwork dentistry done though the years and they have a lot of different colors in their teeth or different sizes, different shapes and they want their smile to be more uniform, be more natural. We can do that with restorative dentistry, which could involve just a few fill ins and a few crowns to actually restoring their whole mouth with crown and bridge. Possibly dental implants too. We can take someone from where they are and put them to where they want to be with different methods depending on the patient's desires.

Dental Crowns and Dental Bridges
If you have a severely damaged or missing tooth, you may want to consider a dental crown or dental bridges. Dental crowns are designed to completely cover a damaged tooth, restoring its chewing ability and appearance. Dental crowns can be made of porcelain or zirconia, depending on your needs. This type of restoration is used for teeth with high levels of decay or damage.
Dental bridges are made up of three or more dental crowns and are used to replace a missing tooth. The dental crowns are bonded together and then attached to your natural teeth surrounding the gap. The middle dental crown will sit in place of the missing tooth, allowing you to chew as normal once more. A dental bridge is an affordable way to replace a missing tooth.
We also offer implant-supported bridges, which offer even more support than traditional fixed dental bridges. Check out our page to learn more about our implant-secured tooth replacement options.
Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings
Our dental fillings are designed to restore cavities both in structure and appearance. We use composite resin fillings that will blend right in with your natural smile. While many offices still use amalgam restorations, our metal-free restorations will repair the damage and help you maintain a beautiful appearance as well.
Inlays, Onlays, and Veneers
Inlays, onlays, and veneers are used to repair damage that is not extensive enough to require a dental crown, yet is more serious than a filling can handle. Inlays are used to repair damage to the biting surface of teeth. Onlays can be used to repair damage on any surface of the tooth, but does not cover it entirely like a crown. Veneers are used to repair damage on the front surface of a tooth and are great for restoring cosmetic appearances.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is used to eliminate an infection and discomfort from a tooth and restore its health and structural integrity. If you are experiencing pain when chewing, you may need a root canal. Our modern tools and techniques, including special microscope technology, can help you get the care you need without stress or increased discomfort. We can even use dental sedation to help you stay relaxed.
