We want you to spend more time enjoying your smile, and less time in the dentist's office.
Our top restorative dentistry services include the following:
When spots of decay weaken your tooth enamel, you don’t have to worry about a silver or amalgam filling further marring the appearance of your smile. Dr. Rodgers and Dr. Hughes can repair new cavities and replace old fillings with beautiful tooth-colored fillings. Made of composite resin, tooth-colored fillings offer a number of advantages to the silver alternative, including a more natural appearance, less removal of tooth structure, and absolutely no risk of mercury exposure.
For significantly decayed or damaged teeth, white crowns allow you to enjoy restored strength without sacrificing your beautiful smile. Made of sturdy, natural-looking ceramic or porcelain, a white crown is a tooth-shaped covering that fits directly over the damaged tooth to hold it together, prevent further decay, and strengthen it against more breakage. Dental crowns are a long-trusted method for repairing a significantly damaged tooth.
They can also be used to support a dental bridge, which is a type of restoration that can replace a row of consecutive missing teeth.
Full and Partial Dentures
Dentures have been used for generations to replace missing teeth because they are one of the easiest and fastest ways to do so. Modern day dentures are still made of an acrylic, gum-colored base attached to prosthetic teeth, but they are much more comfortable and natural looking than ones from the past.
A partial denture can be used to replace multiple teeth missing throughout the mouth, and it is usually held in place with small metal clasps. Full dentures, on the other hand, can restore an entire row of teeth and rely on natural suction or denture adhesive for their hold.
