Dental Crowns & Bridges
A dental crown is a custom cap that we place over the entire visible portion of a damaged or misshapen tooth. Its purpose is to protect the tooth from further harm. A bridge serves to replace a missing tooth. It usually has two crowns, which go on top of the teeth next to the empty space. An artificial tooth “bridges” the gap. Crowns and bridges can be made out of various materials, including metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and 100 percent porcelain.

For many years, silver amalgam was the standard material used to fill cavities. Unfortunately, it is not aesthetically pleasing, and it can increase dental sensitivity. Today, a better alternative is available: tooth-colored fillings. These biocompatible restorations are made out of a composite resin that blends in well with the color of the enamel around it. They do not increase dental sensitivity, and they are durable enough to stand up to the rigors of everyday eating and drinking.

Dentures & Partial Dentures
A full denture is a prosthetic that consists of a gum-colored base and a full arch of artificial teeth. A partial denture replaces multiple teeth are various places throughout an arch. We are proud to provide both of these types of restorations. We carefully design each denture to complement a patient’s facial aesthetics and provide them with a functional bite. With proper care, a full or partial denture could serve you well for several years.

One-Visit Dental Restorations
The traditional method for placing a dental crown requires at least two appointments. In our dental office, we can streamline the process and provide you with a permanent, high-quality restoration in a single day. We use advanced technology to take a digital impression of a prepared tooth. Then, with the help of advanced software, we design the crown. Our in-house milling unit crafts the crown out of dental porcelain. Finally, we verify its fit is perfect before we place it on its intended tooth.
