We follow the golden rule: we treat our patients the way we would like to be treated. It’s important for us to provide you with real information, explain our recommendations and give you time to absorb them. We understand that just as milestones like marriage, graduations, and retirement involve planning, ensuring your smile will last through your lifetime takes some forethought too. That’s where we would like to help you.
For example, some restorative solutions are so beautiful that you may believe they are only cosmetic. Yet many metal-free restorations made of white composite, porcelain, cast glass or resin that are matched to your enamel were actually created to save your smile, not just dress it up.
When your tooth is too damaged for a simple filling, inlays (which fill the cavity) or onlays (which also covers it) can be an excellent solution.
A crown can be used to cap your entire tooth to provide improved shape and strength. One or more can also be attached to a bridge when several teeth are missing.
A crown can also be placed on top of a permanently implanted artificial root made of a biocompatible metal. These dental implants can also be used to anchor a bridge or denture for greater stability.
Still, have questions about your best smile-saving options? We will always be happy to answer them for you. Call us today!
