Dental crowns are tooth-shaped restorations that get their name from the fact that they work by literally fitting over the top of a natural tooth. Our team can use them to fix a wide variety of problems, including large cavities, teeth with extensive physical trauma, and even cosmetic issues like a tooth being an odd shape or size. Our crowns are custom-made for each patient so they both look natural and can be trusted to last for many years to come.
For cases where a patient is missing a single tooth or up to three teeth consecutively, a dental bridge is often the ideal treatment. It involves securing prosthetic teeth within the mouth using dental crowns on either side as anchors. If a patient doesn’t have enough healthy teeth to support these crowns, bridges can also be attached to dental implants. In either case, the result is a smile that looks complete and enjoys fully restored chewing function.
Tooth-colored fillings are how Dr. Doctor quickly repairs minor cavities, and compared to traditional silver fillings, they are a huge leap forward. Firstly, the composite resin material can be matched to any patient’s enamel to ensure the restoration doesn’t stick out in the smile. Plus, these fillings are more conservative and require less enamel to be removed during placement, which in the end, means the repaired tooth will be much stronger and more reliable.
Dentures & Partials
Dentures are a type of prosthetic that can be used to replace several missing teeth at the same time, whether they are right next to each other or spaced throughout the mouth. Today, dentures consist of high-quality ceramic teeth affixed to an acrylic base colored to look just like gum tissue. Dr. Doctor can provide removable full and partial dentures as well as those retained by dental implants, enabling a patient to chew, speak, and smile like they used to.
