Often referred to as “silver fillings”, amalgam fillings restore the tooth’s structure and offer strength and durability for those tooth surfaces which are less visible.
Made of tooth-colored material, composite fillings restore the tooth’s natural appearance. Composites are matched closely to your natural tooth color and are virtually undetectable from your non-restored teeth. While they are excellent options for front teeth, they may also be recommended for certain sites on molars. These composite fillings have proven to be stain-resistant and extremely durable.
Bonded Onlay Restorations
Made of tooth-colored material, these restorations are bonded to teeth. This strengthens the remaining tooth structure and reduces the likelihood of future fractures. Their strength and color make them a practical choice in many cases.
Veneers are thin, translucent shells bonded to the front of teeth. Usually customized from porcelain, they are durable, stain-resistant, and natural in appearance. Veneers conceal broken, chipped, discolored, and misshapen teeth, and provide an attractive and natural-looking smile in a minimal number of visits.
A crown is a restoration technique which covers a tooth for the purpose of strengthening it as well as restoring it to its natural size and shape. It may be placed to retain a large filling when there is little remaining tooth structure, to attach a bridge, protect weak or broken teeth from further damage, or restore fractured teeth. Following root canal therapy, a tooth that has been treated with will require a crown to strengthen and support the tooth.
Partial dentures are an option if some healthy teeth are present for support in conjunction with the gums and jawbone. A partial denture, though removable, provides a replacement for missing teeth.
Full dentures are used if there are no natural teeth remaining in the mouth. The full denture covers more of the jaw than a partial denture and is held in place by a natural vacuum in the mouth and/or by adhesive products.
