Crowns, also called caps, are natural-looking covers that fit snugly over teeth to conceal cracked, badly discolored, injured, or chipped teeth. Crowns minimize physical discomfort and provide support for damaged teeth. Ultimately, crowns can improve the overall appearance of your smile while making your teeth more resistant to injury.

Crowns and Bridges are essentially comfortable, lifelike and natural-looking replacements for decayed or broken teeth.

These prosthetic teeth are crafted to exact microscopic specifications at our dental laboratory and permanently placed by our highly skilled doctors and staff.

Bridges are prosthetics with more than one tooth…crowns are for one tooth each. Artificial teeth are set between crowns placed over adjoining natural teeth. Natural teeth are shaped to receive crowns and form the bridge. Should you have a question, please don’t hesitate to call.

Dental & Restorative Implants

Dental & Restorative implants are essentially permanent, attached teeth that replace dentures, partials, a missing tooth or even a gap between teeth. A titanium implant is permanently attached to your jaw and a prosthetic tooth (crown) is attached to the implant. Implants require one or two outpatient or office surgeries and take from three to nine months to complete.

Several implants may be placed in areas where more than one tooth is missing. The surgery to place the implant takes less than an hour. The procedure is relatively painless and most people return to work the next day.

If you’ve lost teeth from decay, injury or periodontal (gum) disease, dentures are the solution. Whether partial or full dentures, they’re essential not only to your aesthetics, but also your oral health. In addition to allowing you to eat as if you never lost your teeth, dentures protect against facial sagging that would otherwise occur and give you a more aged appearance, as well as promote your natural speech. Denture maintenance, combined with a regular regiment of proper brushing, can guarantee you a comfortable, healthy mouth for the rest of your life.

An Invisalign treatment means having a series of clear aligners that you switch out about every two weeks. Each aligner is specifically manufactured to gradually shift your teeth into place. The Invisalign system is effortless and can transform your appearance. It is the best way to create a new smile while having the least impact on your day to day life.

Veneers are an excellent alternative to crowns and can perfect your smile by masking stains, hiding chips, correcting misalignment, and creating uniformity. Veneers, which are made of thin, customized material designed to slide over the teeth, look incredibly natural, are long lasting, and are relatively easy to apply.
