Bridges were used in the past to replace missing teeth and, in some cases, are utilized currently. More commonly, however, missing teeth are replaced with dental implants which are the recommended treatment of choice.
Porcelain Veneers: Fabricated of the same porcelain as the crowns described above, they can be used to correct minor imperfections, undersized teeth, or deep stains that whitening cannot mask.
Composite Restorations: Modern dentistry has replaced the use of amalgam (silver fillings) with those of composite materials. If you have areas of decay that require restorations or existing amalgam restorations that require replacement, the composite material may be recommended.
Implant-supported restorations: Used to replace a range of missing teeth solutions ranging from a single missing tooth to a complete arch of missing teeth, these restorations can truly improve the quality of life for a person who would otherwise be without one or more missing teeth for the remainder of their life!
Crafting our restorations are expert technicians that bring their equipment to our office and provide custom shading. Restorations are precise and results are wonderful!
