Bonding is a highly esthetic procedure to fix cavities as well as chips and fractures to the tooth structure.  The composite material is applied directly to the tooth’s surface and hardened to achieve strength and superb esthetic effect.

Customized to match your tooth’s color and shape, composite restorations bond to the tooth structure and are a better alternative to the “old” silver fillings. With composite restorations you attain stronger fillings and avoid tooth fractures along with the unaesthetic look commonly associated with silver fillings.


A restorative as well as a cosmetic procedure used for compromised teeth due to severe decay or fractures, and esthetic purposes.  An all ceramic crown creates elegant teeth designed to imitate your natural teeth in function.  Crowns may also be used to correct mal-occlused teeth which can also have great hygienic benefits.  Mal-occlusion may affect your gum health creating a niche for plaque and tarter retention which leads to mouth odor.  Properly positioned teeth are easier to brush and floss and make for healthier gum appearance.

Suggested for those who are suffering from lack of proper function, pain upon chewing, malocclusion, and worsening facial esthetics. This treatment acts to recreate a proper relationship between gums, bones, muscles, and the teeth. Lacking a proper bite can lead to impaired chewing, wearing down of the teeth, soreness of the jaw and neck area, along with migraines. In rehabilitating the mouth, the patient can find relief with improved function and better oral health.


Crowns can also be used to create a lifelike replacement for a missing tooth. This is done with bridgework, which spans the space of the missing tooth and requires at least three crowns. Two of those crowns will be placed over healthy teeth on either side of the missing tooth; these healthy teeth are referred to as abutment teeth. The two crowned abutment teeth become supports for a third crown placed in between them; that third crown is referred to as a pontic. If more than one tooth is missing, more crowns will be needed to bridge the gap in between the abutment teeth.

The number of abutment teeth necessary to replace missing teeth is influenced by the number of missing teeth, the size and length of the abutment tooth roots, the amount of bone support each abutment tooth has, as well as where in the mouth the missing tooth is located. For example, if you have three missing teeth, four abutment teeth may be necessary, thereby creating a seven-tooth bridge. Engineering and designing of the bridge requires an understanding of how to replace teeth, as well as the biology of the supporting gum and bone tissue.

Crowns and bridgework require the same conscientious care as your natural teeth. Be sure to brush and floss between all of your teeth — restored and natural — every day to reduce the buildup of dental plaque. When you have crowns, it is even more important to maintain your regular schedule of cleanings at the dental office. Avoid using your teeth as tools (to open packages, for example). If you have a grinding habit, wearing a nightguard would be a good idea to protect your teeth and your investment.
