Includes everything from dental fillings and crowns to bridges and dentures for replacing missing teeth. Our goal is to restore your teeth so that you can experience the quality of life you desire. Your treatment plan will be tailored to meet your needs, including cosmetic options to enhance your smile. Brushing and flossing aren’t enough to maintain optimal dental health. You should visit the dentist every six months for general dentistry services, in which we will examine your teeth and gums, and perform a thorough cleaning and polishing. If any problems are detected, we can recommend restorative dentistry treatment right away, which may include:
Dental crowns , are prescribed when a tooth or teeth are too badly decayed, broken or cracked to be easily restored with a filling. Crowns are normally needed for teeth that have had root canals. Crowns are also placed on dental implants to replace missing teeth. Crowns can be made entirely of gold or porcelain fused to a gold substrate for strength and beauty. However, with new technology, crowns can be made entirely from high-strength ceramic and porcelain for beautiful cosmetic results.

|After fabrication the crown is cemented to the prepared tooth||Crowns restore natural beauty and health of teeth|
Veneers, unlike a crown, which covers the entire tooth, a veneer is a thin shell that is placed over the front or visible parts of the tooth. There are two types of veneers, ceramic veneers that are produced by a dental laboratory and resin-based composite veneers. With proper care, your new veneers will greatly improve your appearance and increase your confidence for years to come.

Dental bridges, We will prescribe a bridge when one or more teeth are missing and there are healthy teeth on both sides of the open space. Bridges can be made from three types of material, solid gold for reliable long wear, porcelain fused to a gold base for strength and beauty, and high-strength metal-free porcelain for optimum cosmetic results. With proper care, your new bridge will increase your overall health and confidence for years to come.

Inlays and onlays, dental inlays and onlays are some of the strongest and most lifelike dental restorations available. After your mouth has been anesthetized we prepare the tooth in much the same way we would for a standard filling. When the tooth has been prepared to our satisfaction, an impression is made and sent to a dental lab. You will usually be required to wear a temporary filling until the restoration is fabricated. With proper care, your inlay or onlay will increase your overall health and instill confidence for years to come.
Dental fillings are another safe and effective alternative to outdated silver amalgam fillings. Made from a white composite resin material, fillings are inconspicuous, durable, and restore the original strength and functionality to decayed teeth with cavities. Patients enjoy the aesthetic benefits of white fillings, and we recommends white fillings because they are mercury free, long-lasting, and prevent further damage to the tooth.
TMJ/TMD/Neuromuscular disorders occur when there is an impairment in your jaw joint and muscles, causing a great deal of discomfort, as well as trouble eating, speaking, or swallowing. Patients may be given a mouth guard, also known as a neuromuscular orthotic, or a splint. If necessary, we will recommend orthodontics to correct bite problems, or reconstruction using various cosmetic dental techniques.
Gum disease can be treated with a simple scaling and root planing procedure, in which we thoroughly clean down to the tooth roots and in between the gums and the teeth. If you have been diagnosed with the more advanced form of gum disease, periodontitis, antibiotics or even surgery may be necessary. We will do everything possible to prevent having to extract the tooth. The best way to avoid gum disease is to practice good oral health habits, such as brushing and flossing regularly.
