Here in our office we offer some wonderful
tooth colored solutions for restoring your teeth. So if you’ve got a cavity we do composite
resins. We also do ceramic inlays and onlays on the
teeth if you need something that’s a little bit stronger, or slightly larger restoration. If you’ve got a tooth that is really compromised,
we make beautiful ceramic crowns. The ceramic that we use has come a long way
over the last many years. Historically where you really had to use gold
if you wanted something that was going to hold up for many decades, now we can use ceramic. It is incredibly strong and still incredibly
pretty and very lifelike. That actually can also be used for bridges. If you’ve got a missing tooth, and you’ve
got two teeth that are on either side of it that are in good shape, we can use those as a support to build a bridge to bridge the gap. And that’s a wonderful way to replace missing
teeth. If you are missing teeth and are looking for
a wonderful permanent solution, implants are a fantastic way to restore any missing tooth
in the mouth. Every time I place an implant, patients are
completely surprised at how simple and painless the procedure is. The nice thing about the implants is that
they’re a permanent solution, so once that implant is part of the bone, it’s there for
the rest of your life. It’s a great investment, especially if you’re
on the younger side of life and you’re missing a tooth. You can get that replaced and know that it’s
going to last you for many decades to come. Ultimately there are a lot of restorative
options. Whether it’s just a filling or whether it’s
an implant and a bridge that’s being done there, we have plenty of options to look at
to help you get your smile back in optimum health.
