Crowns and Bridges
Dental crowns and bridges are two of the most trusted methods for repairing damaged teeth and replacing missing teeth. Crowns completely cover and protect the visible portion of a tooth, while bridges replace one or more missing teeth in a row with custom prosthetics.
Before performing tooth extraction, we will always attempt to save a decayed or damaged tooth with restorative dentistry. Sometimes, though, the tooth must be extracted to preserve your oral health. We provide effective and gentle treatments and can repair your smile with a custom restoration.
Wisdom teeth, or third molars, generally emerge in the late teens or early twenties. These teeth are often impacted or misaligned, and, many patients do not have enough room in their jaw to support them. To prevent and address complications, we can perform safe, efficient wisdom tooth removal.

The temporomandibular joints allow the jaw to move up, down, and side to side. When these joints are damaged or misaligned, they can become inflamed, resulting in headaches and neck pain. To relieve strain on the joints and minimize discomfort, we can provide custom splints and night guards.
The best way to maintain your oral health is through preventive dentistry. We recommend that patients undergo regular checkups every six months, including an exam, professional cleaning, and fluoride treatment. Depending upon your needs, we can also place sealants to protect your molars from decay.
To address dental decay and preserve your oral health, we can place a composite filling. This material is designed to match the color of adjacent teeth to ensure natural-looking results. In addition, we can carefully layer the composite resin before “curing” it in place, for a long-lasting solution.
