So restorative dentistry, basically simple fillings when there are cavities that decay, that has gotten into the crash grooves in between the teeth, wherever it may be. We would go in, we would clean out that decay, and we would place a filling material in there. It's a relatively simple procedure that helps prevent more serious issues. It helps us avoid things like root canals or extractions or various things. If we catch these small cavities early, it's simple restorative work that can filling. It's been official to have it done early, to basically avoid bigger issues. If the decay continues to progress and spread, in order to restore that tooth or save that tooth, we might need to do something more invasive, like a root canal. Or if it's progressed even beyond that, the prognosis on the tooth might be hopeless and we might have to look at options to replace that tooth.

If you have a cavity, we will clean out the decay and restore your tooth with a tooth filling. We offer two types of tooth-colored filling materials: composite and glass ionomer.
We will discuss your specific case and the advantages of each material with you. Then we’ll get to work!
Thanks to modern restorative dentistry techniques, root canals are no more uncomfortable than a simple tooth filling.
If decay has penetrated your enamel and started to affect the soft tissue and nerves inside your tooth, we will remove the infection and protect your tooth from further decay.
Dental Crowns And Bridges
A dental crown completely caps the visible portion of your natural tooth, strengthening it and preventing further damage or decay.
Or, if a tooth is completely missing or severely damaged, we can replace it using a dental crown attached to a dental implant! And thanks to our state-of-the-art E4D PlanScan system, we can custom-make your crown in a single visit!
Dental bridges fill the gaps in your smile left by one or more adjacent missing teeth. We give our patients the option of:
- Traditional bridges held in place by surrounding teeth
- Dental implant-supported bridges
If you have a cavity too large for a tooth filling, we also offer partial dental crowns, called inlays and onlays.
Even if you need to replace all of the teeth in your mouth, we can help you with a full-mouth reconstruction.
As with most of our services, we give you options. A popular service is our All-on-4® dental implant procedure, which securely replaces an entire arch of teeth using just four dental implants!
If your jawbone is not strong enough for traditional implants, we can also replace teeth using dentures supported by mini dental implants.
