You shouldn’t live with a smile that makes you self-conscious; let us help with restorative dental care.
A dental crown, or sometimes referred to as a “cap”, is used for many dental procedures. A dental crown is made to match your other teeth and will be placed over the tooth in question for a permanent fix. A crown can be used to support a dental bridge, fix a broken tooth, or be installed onto a dental implant.
A dental bridge is used when one or more of your teeth are missing. By attaching two crowns together, one is attached to the tooth next to the gap while the other crown rests in the gap, forming a strong bridge that fills in the missing space where your old tooth used to be. The result is a natural and permanent solution that keeps your oral health in good shape.

Dentures are an excellent way to give your smile all of the benefits of a full set of teeth when you have severe decay, damage, or missing many of your teeth. Without a full set of teeth, your cheeks will start to sag and make you look older than you really are. Dentures will give your smile and face a full and healthy look again!
Dental implants are a very popular way to permanently replace missing teeth. By surgically installing an implant into your jaw, the jaw will fuse with the biocompatible material and form the anchor for your new crown. Dental implants will last a very long time if you take care of it well. They should be cleaned and treated just as your other teeth are, with normal brushing and flossing.
Root Canal Therapy
We always try to keep as much of your natural tooth whenever possible, and root canal therapy allows us to do just that when the root of a tooth is infected. We will drill down through the tooth and clean out the infected area with specialized tools. Once the area is clear of infection, we will fill up the area and make your tooth whole again. Even though it sounds painful, most people admit that the infected tooth was much more painful than the root canal therapy.

Whether you have wisdom teeth that need extraction, need to prepare your teeth for dentures, or simply have a tooth that is severely decayed, we make sure our extractions are preformed precisely and efficiently. We always make sure you are comfortably numbed by anesthesia or sedation before any work has begun. Most of the time it’s best to remove your wisdom teeth before they have the chance to cause potentially major issues with your other teeth down the road.
If you have a cavity, we use only tooth-colored composite fillings to repair your tooth. We also use composite fillings to fix small chips to your teeth. They are nearly undetectable to the eye, and will last for a long time if taken care of properly.
We have an advanced oral surgeon in office that can take care of tooth extractions, emergency dental work, and all other treatments involving oral surgery. The comfort and well-being of our patients is our utmost priority, and we do all we can to make your visit with us a good dental experience.
In the end, no matter how bad you feel your teeth are, we can certainly help! We have the training and experience to improve the appearance and functionality of every smile.
