Fillings / Restorations

Porcelain inlays and Tooth Colored Restorations (onlays) create fillings that are not only beautiful (or unnoticeable) but also add strength to weakened teeth. These restorations are esthetically pleasing and very strong thanks to new bonding technologies.

Dental Sealants

Highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth, dental sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively “seals” the deep grooves, acting as a barrier and protecting enamel from plaque and acids.

Dentures

A denture or a complete denture as it is often called, is an appliance that is inserted in the mouth, replacing natural teeth and providing support for the cheeks and lips. There are many different types of dentures including:

  • Immediate Dentures
  • Implant Retained Dentures
  • Partial Dentures
  • Denture Care
  • Exams & Maintenance
  • Denture Relines
  • Rebase & Repairs
  • Soft Liners

Bridges

If you’re missing one or more teeth, you may be aware of their importance to your appearance and dental health. Your teeth work together for many daily functions from eating to speaking. With missing teeth, it’s difficult to do these things. Missing teeth can and should be replaced. Fixed bridges are a great way to restore your dental health and appearance.

Dental Implants

Designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth, implants look, feel and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.

Crowns

Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns to make the smile appear “as new”. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite. We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using this technology.

Tooth Extraction

Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.

Comprehensive Full Mouth Rehabilitation

Today we have many options to restore people to good dental function, without pain and can create wonderful cosmetic results. It’s often not as simple as putting in an implant or two or making a fixed bridge or removable partial denture. Often several different types of treatment may be employed to have the best possible outcome and coordination of these treatments and the many options available are used.

Root Canal Therapy

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges.
