In the past, treating cavities meant placing cumbersome looking and feeling amalgam fillings made from a combination of metals, such as mercury, tin, and copper. They were known to result in discoloration of the tooth as well as dental sensitivity. Today, we utilize natural-looking and biocompatible composite resin. It chemically bonds with your enamel to stop the spread of decay and doesn’t highlight the location of the damage when you smile.

Inlays & Onlays
When dental damage is too extensive to treat with a filling but not quite severe enough to require a crown, custom inlays or onlays are often the ideal “in-between” solution. Inlays fit inside the tooth, while onlays extend onto the chewing surfaces in order to replace one or more cusps. Once in place, they’ll help to conserve what remains of your natural dental structure while restoring important function and health at the same time.
We utilize 3D digital imaging and computer-aided design to make durable, completely customized dental crowns. We typically craft them from high-quality dental porcelain or ceramic to comfortably fit over the biting surface of damaged or misshapen teeth without drawing attention to that area of your mouth. The restorations renew the shape, size, and structure of your tooth and provide it with added protection and support. This way, you’re able to continue using your natural tooth and avoid an extraction.

If you’re missing consecutive teeth, you’ll likely be able to benefit from a custom-crafted dental bridge. This restoration consists of two crowns at either end of one or more free-standing artificial teeth, called pontics. The crowns are secured to the two natural teeth on either side of the gap in your smile, holding the pontics in place. This will enhance your ability to chew and allow you to smile without worrying about the space anymore.
Missing several or all of your teeth can have an overwhelming impact on your daily quality of life.
