Teeth can become damaged for many reasons: trauma, bite disorders, and disease are all possible factors. Damaged teeth affect not only the aesthetics of your smile, they have an impact on your dental health. Left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss. We offer several treatment options that can repair and strengthen a damaged tooth, supporting your long term oral health. Your treatment plan will be designed to meet your specific needs and may include tooth bonding, dental crowns and porcelain veneers.

A dental bridge essentially “bridges the gap” between existing teeth to replace one or several consecutive missing teeth. Dental bridges have evolved in recent years, providing today’s patients with more stable, lasting and natural looking results that allow normal function and a good quality of life. A fixed dental bridge, supported by dental implants provides the most natural replacement for missing teeth. We use quality materials, advanced digital diagnostics and the latest techniques for designing and placing a custom dental bridge that will restore aesthetics and function to your smile with lasting results.
A dental crown can serve many purposes, from restorative to cosmetic, providing years of healthy smiles. Our team places dental crowns using the highest quality materials and advanced technology for a final restoration that will blend with your smile and meet your needs. A dental crown may be recommended or placed for a wide range of reasons including a damaged tooth, a root canal or tooth decay. A dental crown can either cover a damaged tooth or replace a missing tooth with the help of a bridge or dental implant.
Dental crowns are custom-made for you in our office and can often be completed in a single visit using CEREC technology. There are many advantages to this CAD/CAM technology for both dentist and patient including less discomfort, more accurate diagnosis and faster treatment. CEREC can be used to create high quality porcelain and zirconia dental crowns for a result that is highly durable, aesthetically pleasing and fits comfortably within your natural smile.
Dentures and partial dentures have been the most popular tooth replacement option for patients who have lost several consecutive teeth or an entire arch of teeth. We offer the latest materials and techniques for replacing your lost teeth with a cosmetic denture that can give you back a beautiful, functional smile. Dentures and partial dentures will be custom-made to match the aesthetics and structure of your smile out of high-quality ceramics that will look and feel like natural teeth. Digital diagnostics enable us to more accurately design your new cosmetic dentures for a more secure and lasting fit.
Implant-secured dentures are typically placed using a process called All-on-4. This involves the strategic placement of smaller dental implants that can be completed in a day and will hold a hybrid denture securely in place for a permanent smile.
