Restoration & Esthetics

Fillings

Fillings are used to repair teeth that are affected by decay, cracks, fractures, esthetic concerns, etc.  The decay or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and replaced with a filling material.  There are many types of filling materials each with their own advantages and disadvantages.  These include a variety of composite (white fillings), amalgam (silver fillings) and sedative fillings.  On a case by case basis we will decide with the patient which material is the best option for restoring their teeth.  Although very durable, sometimes dental fillings may have to be replaced. Amalgam Filling Procedure VideoResin Filling Restoration Procedure Video & Sedative Filling Restoration Procedure Video

Crowns

A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth restoring it to its original shape and size.  Crowns are used to restore teeth that cannot be restored with a filling or other restorations.  There are a variety of crowns and depending on functional and esthetic concerns an appropriate option will be chosen.  As with all restorations with time and normal wear crowns may need replacement. Gold Crown Procedure VideoPorcelain Crown Procedure Video & Porcelain-Fused-to-Metal Crown Procedure Video

Fixed Bridges

A dental bridge is a non removable appliance that is used to replace missing teeth.   A bridge uses the teeth next to a space to support the appliance that is replacing the missing tooth or teeth.  Dental bridges are highly durable and will last many years. However they may need replacement or recementation due to normal wear. 3-Unit Bridge ProcedureAll-Porcelain Bridges Video & Alternatives to a Bridge Video
