Composite Fillings

A composite (tooth-colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. Composite fillings are usually placed in one appointment.

Dr. Co will remove decay as needed, and the area will then be thoroughly cleaned and carefully prepared. The composite filling will then be precisely placed, shaped, and polished, restoring your tooth to its original shape and function.

Porcelain Bridges

A dental bridge is a fixed oral appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth. Getting a bridge usually requires two or more visits. First, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a portion of enamel to allow for a crown.

Next, a highly accurate impression (mold) is made. At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully checked, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a proper fit.

 

Full & Partial Dentures

Dentures are removable dental appliances for missing teeth and surrounding tissue that closely resemble your natural teeth and enhance your smile.

A partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from shifting. They can last many years, but may have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear.

Dental Implants

Unlike dentures, dental implants are permanent tooth replacements that can last a lifetime with proper hygiene. Dental implants become part of your natural smile since they fuse with the jaw bone, they are stain-resistant, and allow you to eat, speak, and smile like you would with natural teeth.

 

TMJ Therapy

The temporomandibular joints, called TMJ, are the joints and jaw muscles that make it possible to open and close your mouth. If these joints become damaged or misaligned, they can cause a variety of symptoms, including:

  • Headaches
  • Pain in the neck or shoulders
  • Clicking or popping sounds in the jaw joint
  • Difficulty opening or closing the mouth

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, talk with our team about it. We can help relieve the pain with a custom-crafted oral orthotic.

Crowns

A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over the tooth to restore its shape, strength, and appearance.

Dental crowns may be needed in these situations:

  • Preventing a weak or cracked tooth from breaking
  • When tooth damage is too severe for just a filling to fix
  • To cover a dental implant
  • To hold a dental bridge in place

Porcelain crowns are durable and crafted to look just like your natural teeth. You can have a healthy and beautiful smile again!
