General/Restorative Dentistry

Comprehensive dental services to save and restore damaged teeth.

Fillings and Crowns
Over time your teeth begin to weaken and become more susceptible to problems such as decay, cracks, discoloration and others. Minor tooth fractures, tooth decay, and tooth damage can often be repaired with a dental filling. A root canal and dental crown may be necessary if a tooth has more severe damage.

Crowns can be made from silver, porcelain fused to metal, or gold.

Root Canal
Every tooth consists of three different layers. The outermost and hardest layer is enamel, and the second layer is dentin. The third is pulp, which is the cavernous space where the live tissue and nerve of each tooth is located.

If for any reason the pulp space is exposed to the outside, the tissue becomes contaminated and eventually infected. The exposure of pulp happens in many circumstances, such as when you have a large cavity or a fractured tooth. In these cases, the treatment is usually a root canal.

A dental extraction is the procedure to remove a tooth from your mouth. A dental extraction is most commonly required if one of your teeth is damaged beyond practical repair. Tooth extractions are routine dental treatments that help prevent more serious dental problems.

Dental bridges are a great way to replace missing teeth. Your existing teeth are used to create a bridge to cross the area where your tooth is missing. Bridges are made from gold, metal, alloys, or porcelain to ensure that they are strong and durable.

Dentures are a replacement for missing teeth that can be removed and put back into your mouth as you please. Depending on each individual patient case, they may receive full or partial dentures.

When you have missing teeth, your facial appearance can change, your other teeth can shift, your gums can be damaged and you aren’t able to properly chew your food. With dentures, your smile will be restored, you’ll be able to eat more comfortably, and your appearance will be improved.
