Crowns and Bridges
Most dentistry looks like dentistry. 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.
Teeth that have been broken, worn, damaged or visibly destroyed by decay can still be saved. A dental crown is a covering placed over the damaged tooth to protect it from further harm and to make it look more natural and beautiful. The placement of a dental crown over a visibly injured tooth is both cosmetic and protective.
To place a dental crown, the dentist first properly prepares and shapes the tooth. Next, an impression is taken, and a temporary crown is placed over the tooth. The impression is sent to a dental lab, and the permanent crown is made. When you come in for your next appointment, the dentist will remove the temporary crown and cement the new, permanent one in place.

Missing a tooth but not a candidate for an implant? We can help. Our stable dental bridges can replace one or more teeth – and do it so beautifully no one will know they are even there!
A bridge consists of two crowns attaching a false tooth to the teeth on either side. Our bridges are fixed, so they stay in place and feel secure.
