If you have a cracked, broken, decayed or worn teeth or missing tooth/teeth as consequences of age, accidents and the regular wear and tear of daily activity or TMD, we can bring back your healthy, natural-looking smile.We offer a full range of restorative dentistry services, including:
A crown is a custom-made restoration fabricated with different types of materials (metal, metal fused to porcelain or metal free) that completely covers your tooth or restores an implant. During your crown procedure, we will cement it to cover your damaged tooth or implant to restore its structure, strength, and functionality. Crowns not only repair and strengthen a damaged tooth or restores an implant they can also be used to improve your appearance.
You may need a crown if:
- Your tooth has fractured
- An old crown or filling has failed
- You have had root canal therapy
- You had an implant
- You have a very large cavity
- You’ would like to improve a tooth’s appearance
When teeth are missing, your mouth must compensate for the lack of chewing power in the area in order to function properly. The chewing force may shift to another part of the mouth, which can cause unwanted spaces, muscle soreness or spasms, lack of joint support, stress in your jaw joint (TMJ) and as a result joint pain while chewing and changes in your smile and lifestyle.”It’s much harder to clean teeth that have shifted, therefore harmful tartar can build up causing cavities and gum disease.
To fill the gaps left by the original missing tooth/teeth we will fabricate a bridge that fills in this space, using the adjacent teeth for support, renewing your once damaged smile.
ROOT CANAL THERAPY
Today, even if the pulp of one of your teeth becomes injured or infected, it often can be saved through a root canal (endodontic) treatment. Endodontics is the area of dentistry concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases or injuries to the dental pulp. Treatment usually involves the removal of the tooth’s pulp, a small thread-like tissue that was important for tooth’s development. Once removed, it is replaced with materials that seal the root canal from its supporting structures. Years ago, diseased or injured teeth were often extracted.
You may need a Root Canal if
- Have a cracked or broken tooth
- Have a decayed or worn teeth
- Have a tooth infection
- Have an extensive cavity or a painful tooth
