Fillings
Dental Fillings are used to restore tooth damage caused by tooth decay. Our office uses primarily composite or tooth-colored fillings which are virtually undetectable. Composite fillings, in addition to being more esthetically pleasing, bond directly to the tooth surface, unlike traditional amalgam or silver fillings. Amalgam is used only in the rare instances where composite would not have a good prognosis.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is composed of a ceramic resin that is brushed onto the tooth and hardened with intense light. Prior to bonding application the tooth surface must be prepared to accept the bonding. This is accomplished by roughening the tooth surface and applying a gel to micro-etch the surface. A primer agent is then applied so the bond will adhere properly. Dental bonding is used:

•  Repairing tooth decay damage
•  To improve tooth alignment
•  To fill gaps between teeth
•  For cosmetic reasons (improve tooth appearance, including altering shade)

Dental Crowns
Crowns are used to restore severely damaged teeth due to fracture or decay. After the tooth surface is cleaned and prepared, the crown is placed to cover the remainder of the tooth. The crown strengthens the tooth structure and helps prevent future decay. Crowns also improve the tooth's look, shape, and alignment. Today's crowns are stronger and more beautiful than ever! Crowns are used to:

• Restore a fractured tooth
• Restore a tooth severely damaged by decay
• Protect a tooth from fracture
• Cover a discolored or unattractive tooth
• Cover a dental implant
• Anchor a bridge

Dental Bridges
Bridges are used to replace a missing tooth in both a cosmetic and functional fashion. A bridge structure is one or more artificial teeth anchored in place by natural teeth, crowns, or implants, on each side of the bridge. Using a bridge to fill the gap from missing teeth helps restore proper bite and prevent teeth from shifting to fill the gap (which may lead to additional bite and jaw joint issues). Bridges can be constructed from gold, porcelain and metal, or all ceramic. Ceramic bridge color is made to match your natural tooth color. Material choice will depend on structural requirements, wear, and esthetics. Bridges are used to:

• Replace missing teeth
• Prevent teeth from shifting
• Correct bite issues due to missing teeth
• Help prevent jaw joint problems from altered bite
• Improve appearance (cosmetic reasons)

Porcelain Veneers
Dental Veneers are custom crafted porcelain laminates fitted over the front of an existing tooth. They bond directly to the front of the tooth, dramatically enhancing or restoring its shape, color, and appearance. Veneers are:

• Virtually undetectable
• Very durable
• An effective way to improve smile appearance
• A quick and predictable way to achieve a smile makeover

Dental Implants
Implants may be the best option for replacing a single or multiple missing teeth or to improve retention for a denture or partial. An implant is a metal post that is attached directly to the jawbone. After the bone and surrounding tissue has healed an artificial tooth can be attached to the implant. Implants provide additional benefits compared to bridgework as they do not depend on neighboring teeth for structural support and cannot get cavities. Implants are the closest dental structure in durability to natural teeth and may have greater cosmetic appeal. Implants are used to:

• Replace missing teeth
• Prevent teeth from shifting
• Correct bite issues due to missing teeth
• Help prevent jaw joint problems from altered bite
• Improve appearance (cosmetic reasons)
• Help retain a denture or partial

Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening, as the name implies, is a process for making your smile brighter and more attractive. The many methods of teeth whitening vary widely in time, effectiveness, cost, but all can help you achieve the smile of your dreams!

Root Canal
A root canal becomes needed when tooth decay is so badly neglected it reaches the tooth pulp. Once the pulp is infected it cannot heal on its own. Sometimes tooth trauma such as a fracture can lead to the need for a root canal as well. In addition to being painful, untreated infections can reach the root tip and compromise the entire immune system. Symptoms of pulp infections may be:

• Sensitivity to hot/cold
• Sensitivity to sweets
• Pain, especially when biting
• Swelling
• Bad taste in the mouth

A root canal procedure includes cleaning out the infected pulp, disinfecting the canals and filling the void with a rubber like substance to prevent further infection. Sometimes a crown is recommended to restore the tooth shape, look, and to strengthen the tooth structure.
