If a cavity is too large to be filled with a composite resin or an old filling is cracked or failing, then we can fabricate a natural looking porcelain restoration called a dental crown. This procedure usually takes two appointments. During the first appointmentthe tooth is cleaned of any infection or fracture, prepared and a temporary crown is placed. A custom porcelain crown is then fabricated and on the second appointment the temporary is removed and crown is placed.
Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth. The dental crowns created at Advance Dental are high-quality and made from the latest and strongest ceramic materials. Once cemented in the mouth the crowns will appear and feel natural as they are created specifically to each patient’s smile aesthetic and bite
When your teeth are missing, it greatly affects your smile. At the same time, the missing tooth has the potential to negatively affect your oral hygiene because of unprotected gum exposure. Dental bridges are one of many options aimed at improving the appearance and function of your teeth by replacing the missing tooth or teeth. During your exam, we will discuss whether or not dental bridges are right for you.
Root canals are needed when decay and bacteria spread for too long without treatment. At a certain point, this decay makes it to the pulp inside the tooth. This pulp includes nerves, therefore infection generally causes a lot of pain. Since this is happening on the inside of the tooth, you won’t necessarily see the damage. Instead, you could feel it through pain and notice other signs that include bleeding, swelling and bad breath.
An extraction is performed to remove a tooth, whether because of disease, crowding, or damage. When extractions are required, the area around the tooth will be numbed and your dentist will remove the tooth. A small amount of bleeding is normal, as your mouth will replace the removed tooth root by forming a blood clot in the area.
Dentures / Partial Dentures
Partial and full dentures can restore your smile where you are missing teeth. These treatments are custom to each patient to achieve a natural appearance. Implants can be added to these procedures to support or increase the fit and feel.
