Choose From Multiple Tooth Replacement Options

You have several choices to replace missing teeth, including:

  • Dental Bridges – A dental bridge can replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. We attach the bridge to adjacent teeth with dental crowns. We can also attach a bridge to dental implants. You won’t have to remove a bridge for cleaning; just follow your usual brushing routine.
  • Dental Implants – Embedded directly into your jawbone, dental implants provide a secure foundation for dental crowns, dental bridges, or dentures. They look, function, and feel like your natural teeth.
  • Dentures – We can replace anywhere from a few missing teeth to an entire mouthful of teeth with dentures. To ensure dentures won’t ever slip, we can attach them to dental implants.

Repair Chips, Breaks, & Other Dental Damage

Whether it’s a cavity, a break, a crack, or other dental damage, we can restore your tooth and oral function so you can chew your food more easily. In addition to our tooth replacement options, our restorative solutions include:

  • Tooth Fillings – We use tooth-colored composite fillings, never amalgam, to repair cavities.
  • Dental Crowns – Since they completely cover your tooth, dental crowns can repair a wide variety of dental damage such as breaks, cracks, or severe decay. When attached to a dental implant, a crown can replace a missing tooth.
  • Inlays and Onlays – We use these to make repairs that are too big for a tooth filling but not big enough for a dental crown.
  • Root Canals – If the pulpy center of your tooth becomes infected, endangering your tooth, our dentists can save it with a root canal.
