Our practice provides comprehensive dental treatment for the whole family. We recommend having your teeth cleaned twice a year. At one of those visits (once a year) we recommend having dental radiographs (x-rays) taken and an exam done by one of our dentists. A shortened list of our basic services with brief explanations are listed below.
Composite restorations: tooth colored fillings
Silver amalgam restorations: traditional silver fillings
Gold inlays: traditional filling material with precious metal as their primary component
Crowns: a restoration that completely covers the tooth to provide improved strength and/or function.
***Our office offers same day crowns***
Gold onlays: a restoration that is past the need for a filling, but does not require a full coverage crown
Bridges: a series of crowns used to replace missing teeth
Veneers: an esthetic anterior restoration
*There are many options in fixed prosthetics, and crowns can be made from a multitude of materials. A thorough discussion with the dentist is required to determine what the best choice is for each patient.
