Treatments

Bonding

Dental bonding is a dental procedure in which a dentist applies a tooth-colored resin material (a durable plastic material) and cures it with visible, blue light.

Bridges

A bridge is a fixed dental restoration (a fixed dental prosthesis) used to replace a missing tooth (or several teeth) by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants.

Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth — to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance.

Fillings

A filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. Materials used for fillings include gold, porcelain, composite resin, or amalgam (Zinc & Silver blend).

Implants

A dental implant is a titanium post surgically positioned into the jawbone that allows dentists to mount replacement teeth or bridges into that area.

Inlays

A dental inlay is similar to a filling and fits inside the cusp tips (top edges) of the tooth.

Laser Therapy

When used for “curing” a filling, the laser helps to strengthen the bond between the filling and the tooth.

Periodontal Therapy

A “conservative” (non-surgical) program consisting of a series of 2, 4, or 6 visits to control gum disease.

Root Canal

Recommended or needed when there is an infection deep within the tooth.

Veneer

Layer of material placed over a tooth, veneers improve the aesthetics of a smile.
