A dental implant is a titanium cylinder that is placed in the jawbone to replace missing teeth. The implants essentially serve as artificial tooth roots, which provide the foundation for an attachment connected to the implants that will then connect to artificial teeth replacements. Our practice offers a comprehensive variety of dental implant options that can help you achieve your individual goals with outcomes that meet your expectations.

Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are designed to protect a tooth from breaking by covering the tooth on four sides, top, back, front, and two sides. Crowns can be made from metal (precious, semiprecious, non-precious), porcelain fused to metal, porcelain alumina, porcelain zirconia, dilithium silicate porcelain, plastic, or all feldspathic porcelain. A crown is made by removing tooth structure to compensate for the thickness of the crown. The thicker the crown, the more removal of tooth. In this way the crown will be about the same size as the original tooth.
A fixed bridge is a replacement for missing teeth. It consists of an attachment of one or more fake teeth attached to the teeth next to the space. Therefore, it requires at least one tooth on each side of the space. It is characterized in several ways; the number of teeth involved, the design, and the materials used.
Metal-Free (Tooth-Colored) Fillings
When cavities (called caries) occur, many times we can use tooth-colored fillings to restore the beauty of your smile and the strength of your teeth without obvious signs of treatment. These aesthetically appealing restorations are designed to blend in seamlessly with your existing teeth
for natural-looking results. Furthermore, our fillings are free of toxic elements like mercury to help safeguard your health now and in the future. It can be used to fill cavities, replace old fillings, restore broken cusps of teeth, and to replace worn enamel.
