Tooth Colored Fillings

Our office utilizes tooth colored composite to fill small to mid-sized cavities. We ensure maximal esthetics by matching the fillings to the natural color of your teeth. Made of composite resin, white fillings are strong, stain-resistant and require less removal of your tooth structure than silver amalgam fillings. You also may consider replacing old silver fillings with white composite fillings if you aren’t pleased with the darkened look of the silver fillings. White fillings are just as durable as they are attractive!

Root Canals Treatments

Root canals get a bad wrap. But don't believe the rumors; the dreaded root canal isn't dreadful at all! Root canal treatments are needed when either decay or an injury affects the inner nerve and blood supply of the tooth, called the pulp, causing an infection. In the earliest stages of infection, you may not feel any pain at all. But when it progresses, you could have a toothache and swelling. Left untreated, this infection can negatively impact adjacent teeth and sometimes can even cause life threatening issues.

Root canal treatments involve removing the infected inner pulp of the tooth, cleaning the root canal space, placing medicine to help treat the infection, and sealing the root canal space up to prevent future infection. Root canal treated teeth are fragile and prone to fracture, therefore crowns are typically recommended to cover the tooth and provide strength and protection. 



Head over to our “Dental Implants” page to discover how implants may be the best option for you to replace missing teeth. Dental Implants



Removable complete or partial dentures are a great way to restore your beautiful smile if you are missing several or all teeth. Dentures allow for more tooth surface to chew with and make you look and feel younger. Complete dentures are made of acrylic and replace one or both arches of teeth. In contrast, partial dentures are utilized to replace one or several teeth and are made of a cast metal framework and acrylic. Dentures are custom made for your mouth and through the fabrication process your input is used to ensure that we produce the most natural, esthetic, and functional appliance possible. The fabrication process typically involves about four appointments and new appliances often require adjustments after delivery.

On a case by case basis, immediate dentures may be an option for patients who need teeth removed and would like an appliance to replace those missing teeth directly after the extraction procedure. The fabrication process occurs before the extraction procedure and your new denture is immediately delivered following the surgery. This ensures that you leave the office with a full smile. Immediate dentures require multiple follow-up appointments for adjustments and relines as the contours of your bone structure changes during the healing process.

For patients who would like their dentures to have more retention, our office offers implant supported options. Your new partial or complete denture would still be removable, but snaps into place using implants, thus preventing your denture from sliding around in your mouth.

Just as with natural teeth, dentures require daily maintenance. With regular wear and tear, your dentures may last 5-7 years. During that time, you may need periodic denture relines to accommodate changes in the contours of your mouth. Regular denture relines involve resurfacing the base to ensure that your dentures fit and function perfectly. If you break your dentures, it is critical to bring them to the office for professional denture repair. Home denture repair kits can cause damage and be even more costly to fix.
