Sometimes, despite your best brushing efforts, tooth decay and cavities can still occur. If this does happen, you will probably need a dental filling. While this may seem intimidating and a little scary, it is a common procedure, and we provide it in a comfortable setting. When you come in for a filling, your dentist will numb your mouth with anesthesia. Next, they will carefully drill into the tooth to remove the decay and prep it for the filling. Then they set the filling and polish it so it is smooth and unnoticeable from the rest of your teeth. This is all done in a single visit, so you will be in and out of the office quickly and can get on with the rest of your day. Everytime you come in for a checkup and exam, we will inspect your filling to make sure it is in good condition.
Dental crowns are usually placed on teeth that are quite damaged — through either internal decay or external trauma, stemming from bruxism, for example. A crown can help a tooth regain full strength after damage occurs. A crown is a piece of shaped material that is designed to fit over a damaged tooth. It can be made with metal, porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, or zirconia. Metal crowns usually go on the molars in the back since they are less visible and need to withstand more bite pressure. If we determine that a crown is the best option for you, we will take detailed images of your tooth using the latest dental technology. From there we create a custom cap designed for your unique needs.
A dental implant is a permanent solution for a missing tooth. Whether you lost a tooth because of trauma or disease, or your dentist has recommended extraction for health reasons, an implant provides support that can accommodate a prosthetic tooth. The implant is placed beneath the gum line and is supported by your jaw. Implant posts are typically made from strong titanium and can accommodate pretty much any type of prosthetic. An implant is a great option because it is permanent, and it provides the same support as the rest of your natural teeth.
