Gone are the days when fillings were mostly performed with metal amalgam, a combination of heavy metals, including toxic mercury, that was just stuffed into a cavity. These days, we can offer tooth-colored fillings that not only look more attractive, they function better as well. If fillings are required as part of your reconstructive dentistry case, we offer two options for tooth-colored fillings:
During your appointment, we can talk about which option is right for you.
Preserving Natural Teeth
Although there are many advanced restoration options, none is as good as your natural teeth. When possible, we like to preserve your natural teeth.
Dental crowns restore heavily damaged or decayed teeth to give them excellent strength. If your tooth is infected, we can perform a root canal treatment, also called endodontic therapy, to remove the infection before placing your dental crown.
Replacing Missing Teeth
Replacing missing teeth is a critical part of reconstructive dentistry. We have many options for replacing missing teeth. During your consultation, we will help you decide which one best fits your cosmetic and functional goals while remaining within budget constraints. We offer:
Many people think dentures are not a good option, but our amazing dentures offer the best comfort, function, and appearance of any dentures. Dental bridges are a great option for replacing a single missing tooth if you either need restoration on the teeth beside the gap, or if you are not a candidate for dental implants. Dental implants are the replacement option most like your natural teeth in form and function. With proper care an implant may be a permanent replacement.
Our dental implant procedure benefits from our improved digital workflow. This allows us to replace all your teeth at once with an implant denture. Just one procedure and you can have a whole new set of beautiful, functional teeth. We also utilize platelet-rich fibrin (PRF), natural healing factors concentrated from your own blood, to speed healing.
