Crowns & Cosmetic Fillings
Cosmetic and Restorative fillings: Cosmetic and restorative fillings are accomplished after the dentist prepares the tooth, then immediately places amalgam or resin composite fillings and adjusts it during that same one day appointment.
Crowns: If you have had an older, large filling fall out, a part of your tooth cracks or breaks off, or if you’ve had a root canal, you may need a crown to cover the tooth and restore it to its normal shape and size. A crown can also make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance if it’s discolored or badly shaped.
Sealants: A sealant is a plastic material that is usually applied to the chewing surfaces and bonds to the back teeth- premolars and molars and it acts as a barrier, protecting the enamel from plaque and acidic by-products from oral bacteria. Sealants are easy for us to apply, and take only a few minutes to seal each tooth. As long as the sealant remains intact, the tooth surface will be protected from decay.
Dentures, Partials and Bridges: If you’re missing one or more teeth, it may be difficult to chew, speak or smile affecting the appearance or overall dental health. Fortunately, missing teeth can be replaced, and they should be.
Emergency Care: We reserve time in our daily schedule for emergency patients so make sure to call us and provide as much detail as possible about your condition. Remember, pain is a signal that something is wrong- a problem that will not disappear even if the pain subsides. If you’re concerned about limited or no dental insurance, ask us about our convenient outside financing options. We can submit an application online for you and get an immediate decision- and the emergency care you need.
