Tooth-Colored Fillings

To treat a cavity, first we need to get rid of the bacteria that caused the decay in the first place. Then we need to replace the portion of the tooth that was lost with a filling. Traditional fillings are made from a combination of metals; the fillings we use today, on the other hand, are made out of a material that more closely matches the color of natural teeth. When shaded correctly, a tooth-colored filling blends in so well with your enamel that it appears as if there was never a cavity in the first place.


Dental Crowns

A cavity that has already spread to more than half the tooth or an accident that physically breaks the tooth can result in damage that’s too severe for a filling. Instead, we can place a tooth-shaped cap called a crown over the tooth, completely covering it and keeping it safe from further harm. Crowns can be made of gold, porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, zirconia, and ceramic material; we’ll go over the advantages of each one so that you can get a restoration that suits your own needs.

Root Canals

Have you been experiencing extreme pain in your tooth? Have your gums become swollen around a specific area? You might have a tooth infection, and the only way to treat it without getting rid of the tooth entirely is to take out the infected tissue inside through a treatment called root canal therapy. The process isn’t as painful as you might have heard; the tooth will be numbed first, and afterwards you’ll experience relief from the discomfort that the infection was causing you. 


Tooth Extractions

Ideally, all of our patients would keep their natural teeth for life. However, sometimes damage and decay are so severe that removing the tooth is the only viable option for keeping the entire smile safe. We’ll use a local anesthetic and a gentle touch to make the removal process as comfortable for you as possible, and we can take whatever steps are needed to fill in the gap afterwards so that your mouth can still function properly.
