Silver and gold fillings used to be our only choices for restoring your damaged or decayed teeth. But advances in dental materials technology have created strong new synthetic tooth colored restorative materials that help you look your best. If you decide you'd like your tooth restored with a white material, we can use either porcelain or composite resin, which is a plastic-like substance.
We'll carefully match the chosen material to your natural teeth, so the restoration will blend in well. Both porcelain and composite resin bond securely to your tooth, so the restorations are extremely strong and durable. Also, because they are bonded, we can be more conservative when we prepare your tooth for the filling, so you retain more of your natural, healthy tooth.
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are fabricated with the help of a dental laboratory. They generally cover the tops and front of teeth. Veneers can be used to whiten teeth as well as correct problems like chipped, misshapen, crooked or worn teeth. Porcelain veneers are custom created to precisely fit your teeth. On your first visit, we carefully remove a thin layer of enamel. Then we take impressions of your teeth. A dental lab uses these impressions to build a model of your teeth, then creates the veneers on that model. Once they are in place, veneers virtually become part of your teeth. You can use them like you would your own teeth, because the bond is extremely strong. Your final result is a more beautiful natural-looking new smile!
White crowns used to only be made of porcelain fused to metal, often leaving a dark gray area at the gumline. Now, we have the technology to create your crown entirely from porcelain. All-porcelain crowns are translucent, like your natural teeth, so they look great! White crowns used to only be made of porcelain fused to metal, often leaving a dark gray area at the gumline.

They repair and strengthen damaged teeth, and can also be used to improve your appearance by covering discolored or misshapen teeth. Crowns require at least two visits. We’ll prepare and shape your tooth, then take impressions. A dental lab will make a model from these impressions, and use the model to create your natural-looking new all-porcelain crown.

When a tooth is missing, it can cause a chain reaction of problems. Surrounding teeth may shift, causing stress to your jaw joint when you chew. It’s much harder to clean teeth that have shifted, so harmful tartar can build up, which can cause cavities and gum disease. A bridge fills in this space, using the adjacent teeth for support. These teeth will be reduced and contoured, and then we’ll make a precise impression of your teeth. Using this impression, a dental lab will make a model, and it’s on this model that your bridge is created. We will consider the function as well as the appearance of your replacement teeth when we select the material for your new bridge. We may use porcelain, acrylic, gold or other alloys, or a combination of these materials, depending on your situation.
Periodontal (gum) disease is an infection of the teeth, gums and bone. It’s caused by plaque, the sticky film of food and bacteria that forms constantly on your teeth. You may have gum disease, and not even know it, because it’s rarely painful in its early stages. If plaque isn’t removed each day, it hardens to become tartar, and only a professional cleaning will remove it. If it’s not removed, tartar invades the root surfaces of your teeth.
Here, harmful bacteria thrive and cause toxins to form, destroying gum and bone tissue. If bone tissue is destroyed, your teeth can loosen. So let us know if you have persistent bad breath, if your gums are swollen, soft or tender, or if they bleed when you brush or floss. If we diagnose gum disease early, we can stop the destruction and save your teeth.
