Restorative options vary from one patient to another, ensuring that you receive only what is needed.

We will help in teaching you about each individual procedure and what to expect when having it done.

All-on-4 Dental Implants
All-on-4 technology refers to placing four strategically planned implants to keep a denture in place. This prevents the need for more than just four implants to be used and all of the implants can be placed in one or two appointments.
Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that can enhance your smile. Bonding involves applying a thin layer of composite resin over an area that is damaged or imperfect in some way.
A dental bridge is a restoration that helps to replace one or more missing natural teeth. The bridge attaches permanently to surrounding teeth, so it won't need to be removed and cleaned like a prosthetic appliance.
A dental crown is a restorative option that covers a damaged or compromised tooth. The crown is helpful in protecting the underlying tooth while improving functionality. Crowns are made of incredibly durable materials that can last for years.
Dental Implant Restoration
A dental implant is specifically designed to replace one or more teeth within your mouth. Implants are often made of titanium, and they are surgically inserted into the jawbone.
A dental implant is a restoration that can be used to replace a missing tooth within the mouth. Implants are helpful in that they work on their own. This prevents surrounding teeth from being compromised or filed down to accommodate a restoration.
Endodontics is the field of dentistry that is specific to the dental pulp. Each of your natural teeth has a dental pulp inside of it. This pulp carries the blood supply and nerves that keep the tooth healthy and alive.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures will help to transform your entire smile. If you're missing your natural teeth, there is no reason for you to feel ashamed or embarrassed.
A root canal is a procedure that involves taking out the entire pulp of a tooth. Each of your teeth has a pulp, which is often called the nerve. If this pulp becomes infected by decay or is damaged in any way, it will need to be removed.
