Our Restorative Treatments

Whether you need a filling, crown, root canal or dentures, our comprehensive range of restorative services repair and replace teeth to restore their function and aesthetic. This includes utilizing natural biomimetic dentistry, whenever possible.

Fillings

Our composite fillings (aka tooth-colored fillings) treat cavities and cracked teeth. We remove the affected portion of the tooth and fill it with a safe, mercury-free resin that blends seamlessly with your natural teeth. Fillings are the first line of defense in restorative dentistry.

Inlays & Onlays

The perfect middle ground when a tooth is too damaged for a filling but not so damaged it needs a full crown. Dental inlays are like a filling, but use ceramic (rather than resin) for stronger support, while dental onlays are a partial covering of the cusps (pointed tops of a tooth).

Crowns

A dental crown (or cap) fits snugly over the top of a damaged tooth to restore strength and function. Commonly made from gold, porcelain or ceramic, a crown typically takes two appointments to apply and with the right oral hygiene can last for a decade or longer.

Root Canals

Don’t believe everything you hear. Root canals are not painful when performed with care. In fact, they are one of the best ways to alleviate dental pain. We use root canals to save severely damaged or infected teeth by gently cleaning out the affected area, and sealing the space.

Bridges

A dental bridge is an excellent solution for replacing a missing tooth or row of teeth. We custom make natural-looking prosthetic teeth, and anchor them to “bridge” the gap of the empty space, restoring both function and appearance as if they were your own.

Dentures

These aren’t your grandad’s dentures. They’re much smaller, sleeker and natural-looking, and restore your ability to chew, speak and smile confidently. A partial denture replaces missing teeth throughout the mouth, even when not next to each other, while a full denture replaces an entire row of missing teeth.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are titanium posts surgically implanted into the jawbone to replace missing teeth. They create a strong foundation for attaching custom-made crowns, bridges or dentures, and fuse with bone to offer long-term support and prevent bone loss. Best of all, they provide the look and feel of natural teeth, allowing patients to eat, speak and smile confidently.

We Use Biomimetic Dentistry

In our view, the goal of restorative dentistry is to preserve your natural teeth as much as possible. That’s why we specialize in a specific branch known as “biomimetic dentistry.”

The Difference

Biomimetic dentistry mimics the natural function and look of your teeth. Take fillings. Traditional restorations often involve intense drilling before a filling is placed. Biomimetic dentistry is far less invasive. The materials we use (like composite resin) so closely match the actual structure of your teeth that they bond directly to the enamel, reducing the need for all that drilling.

The Savings

Biomimetic dentistry can save you time and money. That’s because its treatments often don’t “fail” the same way traditional restorations do. So if that filling starts to wane, there’s less risk of further damage, and it’s easier and quicker to fix.

The Bottom Line

The belief old ways always work best, lack of familiarity and additional training (which our dentists have) keep some from offering biomimetic dentistry. But everyone is unique, as is their treatment. Traditional methods will sometimes be preferable. That’s why we always review with you the best options for your budget and health.
