When teeth get damaged, we employ restorative dental procedures to make things right again. There are several restorative options — many you’re probably familiar with — including: tooth-colored fillings, crowns, bridges, inlays, implants, dentures and more.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Left untreated, tooth decay or cavities would ultimately result in the loss of a tooth. Fillings allow patients to keep their teeth after the cavity has been properly cleaned. While traditional silver fillings are available, new composite resins make tooth-colored fillings a popular option so that your teeth look completely natural and healthy.

Fixed Dental Crowns

Among other things, dental crowns are used to restore a broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down. Permanent crowns can be crafted from metal (gold, stainless steel, etc.), porcelain, resin or ceramic.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a fixed dental restoration that replaces a missing tooth by joining adjacent teeth or implants with an artificial tooth. It quite literally bridges the gap created by one or more missing teeth.

Inlays and Onlays

If a tooth is too damaged to repair with a traditional filling, but not enough to require a crown, dental inlays and onlays are used to save the day. Inlays are placed in the center of the tooth while onlays are placed on the inside and outside areas. The approach is less aggressive and usually less expensive than full crowns.

Dental Implants

Dental implants replace the roots of teeth. They provide a strong foundation for permanent or removable artificial teeth that have been custom made to match your natural teeth.

Dentures and Partial Dentures

These are either full sets or partial sets of artificial teeth that are custom made to fit impressions of your jaw and gums. Dentures are made to resemble your natural teeth so closely that they are hardly noticeable. Properly creating and fitting a set of dentures usually requires a few to several weeks depending on your specific needs.
