Composite Fillings

We use high-quality composite resin fillings to restore decayed teeth. Resin fillings are tooth-colored, durable, long-lasting, and provide superior aesthetic results compared to traditional metal amalgam fillings. If you think you have a cavity, get the help you need right away. Filling a cavity as soon as possible ensures that your tooth will not continue to decay, and can help prevent complications like a tooth infection, which may require root canal therapy.

Lab-Made Crowns

We work with expert dental labs to create durable, natural porcelain crowns. A crown is built to fit over your existing tooth and protect it all the way down to the gum line. Crowns are typically used to treat large cavities, to repair broken or cracked teeth, and to restore teeth after root canal therapy.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges use prosthetics and crowns to restore your smile. These crowns are attached to one or more false teeth (pontics) that literally “bridge” the gap between your healthy teeth. They are durable and comfortable, and are cemented in place for a secure fit. Alternative options to dental bridges include, dental implants or partial dentures.

Root Canals

Root canal therapy is an essential treatment for patients with infected teeth. In this treatment, the interior of the tooth is accessed, the root canals are cleaned out, and the tooth is sanitized. This eliminates the source of the infection. Then, the tooth is filled with an inert material called “gutta-percha,” and sealed with a filling or a dental crown. 

Modern root canal therapy treatment is not painful. It's the infection itself that causes pain and discomfort. Root canal therapy is also the best way to avoid long-term complications related to infected teeth, such as total tooth loss.

Basic (Simple) Extractions

Basic or “simple” extractions require no surgery, and are usually used for teeth that have fully erupted from your mouth. Your mouth is cleaned and numbed, then the tooth is wiggled loose and pulled out using specialized dental tools. Then, the surgical area is sutured to help it heal.
 
You may require an extraction if you have a severely damaged tooth that can’t be saved with any other treatment, or if you’re preparing for another dental treatment like tooth replacement with dentures or a dental implant.

Partial & Full Dentures

We offer both partial and full dentures. Partial dentures snap onto your healthy teeth using metal clips, and can restore one or multiple missing teeth quickly, making them a fast and affordable option.

Full dentures are a bit different. They require the extraction of any remaining healthy teeth, since they must fit closely over your gums. This means they are usually only a good option if you have lost most or all of your teeth due to a serious accident, gum disease, or uncontrolled tooth decay and infections.
