As a dental office, we offer a variety of cosmetic restorative procedures to help our patients achieve healthy and beautiful smiles. Here are some details about the procedures we offer: Crowns: Crowns, also known as caps, are tooth-shaped coverings that are placed over damaged or weakened teeth to restore their shape, size, and strength. Crowns can be made of different materials such as porcelain, metal, zirconia, or lithium disilicate, and are custom-made to match the color of your natural teeth. Crowns are often recommended for teeth that have been severely decayed, chipped, cracked, or have undergone a root canal procedure. Bridges: Bridges are dental restorations that are used to replace one or more missing teeth. They consist of two or more crowns placed on either side of the gap, with a false tooth or teeth in between. Bridges are usually made of porcelain or a combination of porcelain and metal, and are usually fixed in place. Bridges not only restore the appearance of your smile but also help maintain the alignment of your remaining teeth. Fillings: Fillings are used to repair teeth that have been damaged by decay or trauma. We offer tooth-colored fillings that are made of composite resin, which blend in with the natural color of your teeth for a more natural-looking restoration. Fillings are a quick and easy procedure that can usually be done in a single visit. Inlays and Onlays: Inlays and onlays are indirect restorations that are used to repair teeth that have been damaged by decay or trauma. They are custom-made in a dental lab or in our office, and are usually made of porcelain, gold, or composite resin. Inlays and onlays are similar to fillings, but they are used for larger cavities or to replace old fillings. Inlays and onlays are usually done in two visits, with the first visit to prepare the tooth and take impressions, and the second visit to place the restoration. Veneers: Veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are placed on the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. They can be used to correct a variety of cosmetic issues such as discoloration, chips, gaps, or misaligned teeth. Veneers are usually made of porcelain and require minimal tooth preparation before placement. At our dental office, we use the latest techniques and materials to perform these cosmetic restorative procedures with precision and care. Our goal is to help you achieve a healthy, functional, and beautiful smile that you can be proud of.
