The crown will blend with your smile be made using a powerful porcelain material, which can withstand bite forces and pressure and provide years of quality restoration.
  2. True. If you have a cavity, we can place a metal-free and natural looking filling in a single visit. The filling will prevent the decay from spreading and stop further discomfort. If you have an infected tooth, we can perform a root canal procedure, which involves removing the infected tissue, replacing it with a special filling material, and capping the tooth with a same-day crown.
  3. True. If you have TMJ disorder or bruxism (teeth grinding/clenching) we can use an oral appliance to reposition the jaw and prevent further damage to the teeth. Addressing these common issues can reduce the risk of pain in the neck, head, face, and jaw.
  4. True. Tooth loss can have a negative impact on your appearance, overall health, and quality of life. In order to address tooth loss, we can place a dental bridge, offer full or partial dentures, or even recommend dental implants.
