dental implant Dental Implants
We can use a dental implant to replace a single tooth, or several missing teeth. Made of titanium, our dental implants are placed in the jaw bone as the root for replacement teeth.

Titanium is also very compatible with living tissue so your body readily accepts it. Thus, dental implants are a very effective and permanent method to restore missing teeth.

Porcelain or Composite Fillings
To repair decay, or to replace an old filling, white porcelain or composite material can be bonded to the tooth surface in place of metal. More visually appealing, porcelain fillings offer other advantages such as resistance to decay and conservation of the tooth structure.

Porcelain fillings can prevent decay-causing bacteria from getting to the inner part of a tooth, as well as preventing tooth fractures due to the expansion and contraction characteristics of metal fillings over time.

porcelain crowns / bridge-work Porcelain Crowns & Bridges
When the structural integrity of a tooth has been weakened by decay, cracks, old fillings, or a previous root canal, we might recommend a crown, or "cap".

For replacing missing teeth, we can use a porcelain bridge to span the empty gap. Crowns and bridges are adjusted during the final appointment for proper fit.

Porcelain Veneer Laminates
Porcelain veneers are thin, semi-transparent porcelain "outer-shells" that are bonded to your teeth. We use veneers as a cosmetic treatment for various dental problems such as broken or fractured teeth, gaps and spaces between teeth, crooked and misshapen teeth, unsightly old fillings, and yellow, discolored, or permanently stained teeth.

Porcelain veneers can last for years and will also strengthen a tooth. Our veneers precisely match the color and contour of your teeth to give you a healthy, natural and beautiful smile.
