Dark metal amalgam fillings were once the norm for repairing teeth that had been damaged by cavities, but today, there’s a more natural-looking alternative: tooth-colored fillings made from composite resin. We can shade the resin to precisely match your tooth’s current color, ensuring it doesn’t stick out in your smile. Plus, the material closely bonds with your enamel, so we can preserve more of your natural tooth structure while placing it.
If one of your teeth is severely cracked, decayed, worn-down, or even just badly discolored, a personalized dental crown is often the perfect choice for restoring its original appearance and function. These tooth-shaped caps fit snugly over the entire visible section of a tooth, preserving the structure that remains while also helping you chew and smile as you did before the tooth sustained damage. Even better, we offer dental crowns made from zirconia, EMAX, and other tooth-colored materials that become a seamless addition to your grin.
A throbbing, persistent toothache is often a sign of serious infection or injury in the tooth’s center. In this case, the only way to save the tooth is with root canal therapy. During this procedure, we remove the damaged tissue from inside the tooth, replace it with synthetic material, and place a crown to protect the remaining tooth structure. Thanks to modern technology and anesthetic techniques, your root canal shouldn’t hurt in the slightest!
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
The wisdom teeth emerge behind the rest of the teeth, usually when a person is between the ages of 17 and 25. Because most people don’t have enough room in their mouths for these teeth, they can press against other teeth or become stuck under the gumline – both issues that may lead to severe pain and increase the risk of infection. If our team determines that your wisdom teeth are becoming problematic to your oral health, we can extract them using proven methods that ensure your safety and comfort.
