- Typical treatments with the laser are faster, easier to perform and with less pain and shorter healing times compared to conventional treatments. Treatments with the laser can include but are not limited to: Fillings, root canals, crown preps, and oral surgery.
- Sometimes a tooth cannot be restored with a filling. If too much tooth structure is compromised, a crown must be used to protect the remaining tooth structure from breaking. These crowns are generally tooth colored, blend in well with the rest of your teeth, and will give your teeth the longevity a filling couldn't provide.
- Bridges are a convenient way of replacing missing teeth. Essentially, a bridge is three or more crowns made at the same time and made into one piece. Each tooth next to the missing tooth space are adjusted to be able to support the bridge. The bridge is then cemented on permanently. Bridges are generally tooth colored and are aesthetically pleasing. Just remember you'll need to clean underneath the bridge to prevent cavities on the supporting teeth!
Complete and Partial Dentures
- The smile and function of your mouth and teeth can be restored with use of a complete or partial denture. With newer, more natural looking materials and trust in our quality labs, you can chew and smile with confidence.
Root Canal Therapy
- Teeth have many layers: strong enamel on the outside, sensitive dentin directly under the enamel, and then the pulp or "nerve" as the bottom layer. A fractured tooth, a traumatic injury, or a deep cavity leaves the pulp susceptible to bacterial infection. Once the pulp is affected, the tooth will need a root canal to be restored. The inside of the tooth is cleaned out and cleared of infection and filled with a rubbery material to protect the inside of the tooth from being infected again. A crown is then placed on top of the tooth to protect it from breaking. In most cases, this procedure is done in-office. Special cases will be referred to a specialist if necessary.
Tooth Colored Restorations
- Amalgam fillings are very strong, good quality restorations, but only in certain cases. Generally, composite restorations are a better option for most patients. They seal with the tooth better, come in a variety of shades to blend naturally with the surrounding tooth structure, and can be repaired more easily than an amalgam filling.
