Dental crowns are cap-like structures that are designed to fit over the biting surface of teeth that have been treated, damaged, or otherwise compromised. They can be crafted from a variety of materials, but patients often choose to have them made from porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, or full gold. Each material is high-quality and offers different benefits, from durability to aesthetic appearance, and with the proper care, they can last for several years.
Cavities are one of the most common oral health problems among adults and children alike. In the past, dentists would treat decay by securing a metal (amalgam) filling in the decayed portion of the tooth to keep it from spreading. Today, we utilize a tooth-colored composite resin that’s able to chemically fuse with the tooth’s enamel, sealing it off and preventing sensitivity, discoloration, and a variety of additional unwanted side effects.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canals are a misunderstood procedure that many patients are concerned about undergoing, even though they can actually cure toothaches caused by infections! During this procedure, we’ll access the inner chamber of the tooth and remove the infected pulp, eliminating your discomfort. We’ll then rebuild the structure of the tooth with a substance called gutta-percha and top it off with a customized dental crown for added support and protection.
If a tooth is damaged beyond repair, an extraction may be necessary to preserve the surrounding teeth. To do this, we’ll gently wiggle the affected tooth back and forth using dental forceps to break it free of any connective tissue before gently lifting it out of its socket. If necessary, we can work with you to fill the new gap in your smile with an implant crown or bridge.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Wisdom teeth, also referred to as third molars, typically grow between the ages of 16 and 25 and are the last teeth to come in. While our paleolithic ancestors used these to digest tough meats and hard nuts and berries, today, many people have them removed for preventive reasons. If we notice that your wisdom teeth are impacted beneath the gumline, you don’t have enough room in your mouth to arch them, or they could put you at risk of an infection, a wisdom tooth extraction may be in your future!
