Do I Need a Dental Restoration?

If you have a weak, damaged, or missing tooth, then dental restorations are a reliable way to protect your natural tooth structure or restore the fullness of your smile. A tooth that is worn or compromised can't heal or improve on its own, and a traditional dental crown may be necessary to restore the functionality of your bite pattern and protect your tooth from further damage or decay. When you're missing one or more teeth in a row, a dental bridge can fill the gap and repair your bite. We also offer implant-supported crowns and bridges to renew your smile. Here are a few signs that you need a dental restoration:

  • A tooth with a large cavity
  • Worn or weak tooth
  • Cracked or chipped tooth
  • Missing tooth

Custom Crowns

Traditional dental crowns cover a compromised tooth to protect it and recreate the surface area of your bite pattern. We offer beautiful zirconia crowns and artfully match your dental restoration to the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth to create a seamlessly blended smile.

If your tooth structure is severely decayed or missing, our implant-supported crowns are a great solution. Implant crowns consist of an post, an abutment, and a prosthetic tooth. The implant post plays a vital role because it fuses with your jawbone and stimulates it like your natural tooth root, which prevents bone loss and preserves your facial structure.

Dental Bridges

A conventional bridge provides additional support because it consists of a single restoration that recreates the surface area of up to three teeth in a row. Dental bridges consist of a crown at the beginning and end of the bridge with prosthetic teeth known as "pontics" suspended between them. The crowns are secured to healthy teeth, while the pontics replace your missing teeth. Your dental bridge is customized to match your natural teeth for a beautifully blended smile.

Our implant-supported dental bridges rely on two implant posts at the beginning and end of the restoration. The posts secure the restoration, so it doesn't slip, and it also stimulates your jaw to encourage healthy bone density.

Our Dental Restoration Process

Your smile is special and unique to you. That's why we offer personalized treatments, so your custom crowns or dental bridges rejuvenate your health and aesthetics. We believe quality dentistry means combining great customer service with treatments tailored to your needs and smile goals. You can expect us to take the time to get to know you and ask questions to ensure we understand your concerns.

We begin with a thorough exam of your teeth, jaws, and gums to determine if one or multiple teeth require dental restorations. Our office is equipped with modern technology like a CBCT scanner and intraoral cameras that allow us to gather precise information and provide accurate diagnoses and detailed treatment plans.

If you select a traditional crown or bridge, then our dentist will shape the tooth or teeth to ensure your custom crown or dental bridge fits seamlessly. For those who select an implant-supported restoration, our team performs the implant post procedure. Once you've healed and the titanium post has fused with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration, you'll return to our office, and we'll fit your custom crown or bridge. Once your procedure is complete, you'll be ready to smile confidently.
