Bridges —

A dental bridge is a false tooth, known as a pontic, which is fused between two porcelain crowns to fill in the area left by a missing tooth. The two crowns holding it in place are placed over your existing teeth on each side of the false tooth. This is known as a fixed bridge. This procedure is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Fixed bridges cannot be taken out of your mouth as you might do with removable partial dentures.

Crowns —

As teeth become worn from age or develop cracks, the best way to restore the tooth is to give the tooth a new exterior. Crowns are an effective way to restore and strengthen damaged teeth. Crowns give the teeth natural shape and improve the overall appearance.

Tooth Whitening

Many people achieve a whiter, brighter smile with our simple whitening procedure. It's safe, quick and inexpensive. You can whiten only your upper or lower teeth, or your entire smile. You can gradually lift stains through a convenient at-home whitening process, using thin trays and gentle whitening gel.

Non-metal Fillings —

Many people still have mercury silver fillings or other types of fillings whose color does not match the natural color of their teeth. Further, bleaching can result in a more obvious contrast between the fillings and the rest of the teeth. We replace old fillings with cosmetic materials that last longer and blend more naturally into your smile.

Root Canals —

A root canal is a procedure performed when the pulp of the tooth gets injured through tooth decay, or trauma. The nerve of the tooth will become infected causing an abscess. The dentist must then remove the nerve of the tooth, and clean out the canals of all debris.

Tooth Extraction —

There are several different reasons for tooth extractions, if a tooth is damaged from decay and cannot be saved with root canal therapy or the tooth may be too loose as a result of gum disease or even from trauma. The consequences of a tooth extraction is that the removal leaves a large enough gap for other teeth to shift. It is then necessary to replace the missing tooth with a dental implant, bridge or partial denture.   Guidelines to follow after an extraction.
