Tooth-Colored Restorations (Composite, Bonded Fillings)
When a tooth is damaged due to decay or injury, a restoration is typically needed to restore health and function to the tooth. Unlike traditional metal restorations that are noticeable, such as gold or silver crowns and amalgam filings, tooth-colored restorations are especially placed in anterior (front teeth) to blend in with surrounding teeth for a completely natural-looking appearance.
Endodontic Care (Root Canal)
Root canal therapy, or endodontic treatment, consists of the removal of inflamed or infected pulp tissue (dental nerve) and the cleansing and sealing of the internal tooth structure. Root canal treatment may be necessary in cases where there is advanced decay, trauma to the tooth, periodontal disease, bruxism (teeth grinding) or cracked teeth. Once the infected tooth pulp is removed, one of our dentists will restore and protect the damaged tooth, (usually with a crown), to enhance a healthy and beautiful smile for many years to come.
