We use state-of-the-art dental materials and treatment procedures to design restorations that are functional, durable, and as strong as natural teeth.

Fillings are used to repair cavities caused by tooth decay. They protect the tooth from further decay and restore its structural integrity. We offer composite fillings that match the shade of your natural teeth.Video: Filling
Crowns are used to cover and completely restore a tooth that has been severely damaged by decay or injury, or after root canal treatment. The crown fits over the injured tooth and restores its strength.Video: Crowns
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays look like fillings, but they are produced in a dental laboratory and cemented into place in the tooth being repaired. They are used to strengthen teeth that can't be repaired with fillings.Video: Inlays / Onlays
We use bridges to restore one or multiple missing teeth in a row. The bridge consists of synthetic replacement teeth that are attached to the remaining natural teeth adjacent to the missing teeth.Video: Bridges
Frequently Asked Questions
Are metal fillings bad for me?
No. Dentists have been using metal fillings to repair cavities for almost a century. Studies have shown that metal fillings can release trace amounts of mercury, but the amount released is extremely small and poses no health risk to patients. If you are concerned about metal fillings, ask your dentist about options such as composite fillings.
Can I whiten my crown, bridge, or tooth-colored fillings?
No. Tooth whitening treatments don’t work on the composite materials used to produce dental restorations. Your dentist may recommend other options to change the shade of your bridge, crown, or fillings.
How long do crowns, fillings, and bridges last?
In most cases, dental restorations should last approximately ten years with proper care. Restorations can be damaged if you eat hard or sticky foods, chew your fingernails, or play sports without a mouthguard.
