Tooth Colored Restorations:
These are fillings which restore carious and fractured teeth and are of the same color as of your tooth structure giving you aesthetic restoration.
Sealants are a safe, painless, and low-cost way to help protect your teeth from decay. Sealants are a thin coating that is bonded to the chewing surface of molars and premolars, preventing food and cavity-causing bacteria from getting into the tiny grooves of your teeth.
Crowns, or caps, are recommended for broken, severely decayed, or heavily filled teeth. Crowns can be made of tooth-colored porcelain, metal, or both, and cemented over the entire tooth to protect it. Two appointments are needed to complete a crown.
A bridge is made to replace a missing tooth. The two teeth on either side of a missing tooth are prepared and 3 fused teeth ‘bridge’ space. Bridges also require at least two visits to complete, are cemented on the teeth, and can be made of tooth-colored porcelain, metal, or both materials.
Complete and Partial Dentures:
Dentures and partials are removable appliances that replace some or all teeth. Several appointments are needed to make a denture, and our doctors take pride in providing comfortable and esthetic dentures for patients.
Root Canals (Endodontics):
Despite their reputation, root canals don’t have to be a bad experience. When decay or trauma causes damage to the nerve inside a tooth, it is cleaned out and filled with a rubber-like material to prevent infection and abscesses.
Preventive Dentistry and Hygiene:
Prevention is the best medicine, and regular cleanings and exams are essential to oral health.
Periodontal Treatment (Scaling and Root Planning):
