Composite Restorations

Composite Restorations are tooth-colored fillings made of resin material that match the natural shade of the teeth. They are an attractive alternative to silver amalgam fillings.

Porcelain Restorations

Veneers are a beautiful way to correct stained, chipped, or misaligned teeth. Made of fine porcelain that reflects light like natural tooth enamel, they can provide patients with bright, straight, and natural looking smiles. A small amounnt of enamel is removed by the dentist to accommodate the thin shells of percelain that are then bonded to the front surface of the teeth.

Lumineers are a brand of veneers that require little to no reduction of natural tooth enamel. While Lumineers are not right for every case, they provide a conservative, quality option for some patients.

Inlays and Onlays are durable and attractive restorations used to repair cracked or decayed teeth. They are indicated when the damaged tooth structure is too large for a direct composite filling, but not extensive enough for a crown. Inlays and onlays are an excellent choice in preserving natural tooth structure.

Porcelain Crowns provide a natural-looking, durbale solution for repairing damage such as cracks, chips, or extensive tooth decay. A crown is created and bonded to the tooth after the decay is removed and the tooth is prepared.

One Visit Crowns or Cerec created porcelain crowns are the latest in technology. Traditional crown restorations require two appointments. By using CAD/CAM technology, a porcelain restoration can be fabricated in the office and bonded to the tooth in just one visit. A digital impression using an intraoral camera is taken to create a virtual model of the prepared tooth. A restoration is then designed on a computer and the information is sent to a milling machine which will fabricate the restoration on-site.
