A treatment approach that aims to restore health, comfortable function, and the esthetic appearance of the entire mouth. This process can take someone who still has all or most of their teeth and visually transform them by placing crowns or veneers over the natural teeth to restore their proper function and appearance. Alternatively, for those who have lost most or all of their teeth, dental implants can be used as a foundation on which to place a natural-looking prosthetic that replaces all that's been lost. There can be many treatment options to consider when approaching this type of care and we promise to help empower you to make decisions you confidently understand and that accomplish your highest priorities.
Restore cavities, repair chipped teeth, and replace unattractive old fillings with tooth-colored composite resins that are indistinguishable from the natural tooth. We use BPA-free composites and never use any metal, so you don’t need to worry about materials like mercury found in outdated amalgam fillings.
Crowns, Inlays, Onlays, and Bridges
Ceramic restorations fit over or into natural teeth and are used to strengthen fractured teeth or repair bad cavities and broken teeth. They can be made to look exactly like your natural teeth or dramatically alter and improve their color, shape, or position. We always use metal-free ceramic and zirconia crowns, providing you with the most aesthetically pleasing and safest materials. The majority of our crowns are finished in just one appointment using our in-office CEREC technology. This method prevents the inconvenience of wearing a temporary restoration and returning for a second appointment to get the permanent. Click here to learn more about the technologies we feature.
