Bonding is a composite resin that is used as an alternative to amalgams and veneers. This is an excellent cosmetic option for those patients who do not want the look of silver in their mouths and do not want the expense of veneers. Bonding can be used on teeth that are decayed, cracked, or stained.

A bridge is one of the few options that you have when deciding how to deal with a missing tooth or teeth. The replacement of these missing teeth is necessary in order to maintain the proper chewing functions. Tooth loss can affect the way you eat, speak, and the alignment of other teeth in your mouth.

As we get a little older, our teeth begin to change and are prone to decay. There are many possible reasons for these changes. These reasons can include bruxism (teeth grinding), general decay, cracked fillings, root canals, and many others. If your tooth is beyond repair with filling material, we may recommend that the best viable option to save the tooth is a full coverage crown. The reasons for this type of restoration in a severely damaged tooth are durability, cosmetic appearance, and overall support of the chewing function.

Dentures are appliances made to replace missing teeth. While dentures take some getting used to, todays dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever.

There are two main types of dentures:  full and partial. Your dentist will help you choose the type of denture that's best for you based on the number of teeth that are being replaced and the stability of all remaining teeth.
