Restorative Treatment: Fillings, Crowns, Bridges


Composite Tooth-Colored Filling

A tooth filling might become necessary if you have cavities, cracked or broken teeth, or erosion.  The enamel on your teeth can be in danger of erosion if you drink too much soda and fruit drinks, eat foods high in sugar and starch, or have acid reflux disease. Poor tooth enamel can also be genetic in nature or due to the type of medications you take. Without healthy enamel, your teeth are in danger of breaking.  Our dental fillings are completed with a white (composite) filling to match your natural tooth color.


Dental Crown (Including Implants)

Dental crowns are used to replace lost tooth structure and restore its shape and form. They are commonly used to fix a broken tooth or to enhance a tooth that could benefit from an improved appearance. Applying and covering a tooth with a dental crown may also help to protect it from decaying. When cemented into place, a crown will cover the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.  You might benefit from a crown if you require:

  • Protection for a weak tooth that is at risk of breaking

  • A safeguard for cracked teeth

  • Restoration of a broken or severely worn down tooth

  • Support for a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t a lot of tooth left such as a root canal treated tooth

  • Support for a dental bridge

  • Cosmetic enhancement of a misshapen or discolored tooth

  • Replacing a missing tooth with an implant crown


Dental Bridge

A dental bridge literally bridges the gap that’s created by one or more missing teeth. The bridge consists of two or more crowns on either side of the gap caused by a missing tooth or missing teeth. These crowns serve to anchor a false tooth or teeth that sit in between, which is often made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials.  Replacing a missing tooth or teeth with a dental bridge can prevent serious dental issues like:

  • Unsightly spacing

  • Unwanted tooth movement

  • Gum problems

  • Occlusal interferences
