Made of tooth-colored material, composite fillings restore the teeth’s natural beauty. Composite fillings are matched very closely to your natural tooth color and are virtually indistinguishable from unrestored teeth. Composite fillings are excellent options for both front and back teeth. The composites we use have proven to be extremely durable and stain resistant. See our Smile Gallery for an illustration.
A crown is a restoration that completely covers and protects a tooth in order to strengthen it as well as restore it to its normal shape and size. A crown may be placed to support a large filling when there is little remaining tooth structure, protect weakened teeth from fracturing, or restore fractured teeth. A tooth that has been treated with root canal therapy typically requires a crown following treatment to provide strength and support to the tooth. We use specifically selected materials for crowns that will provide the longest lasting benefits to each individual patients. See our Smile Gallery for an illustration.
A fixed bridge is used to replace missing teeth, create a normal bite, prevent stress on the dental arch, prevent the drifting and tilt of adjacent teeth, inhibit decay in difficult areas, and more. Bridges are composed of abutments (the sound teeth on either side acting as supports) and the pointic (a framework attached to the abutments with artificial teeth attached to that framework). Our dental bridge and implant patients appreciate the expertise and training that Drs. Cameron and Beth Mohr have in this field as well as success with their patients. See our Smile Gallery for an illustration.
Dental implants replace teeth that have been missing since birth or have been lost due to gum disease, infection, trauma, or decay. Implants are surgically attached to the jawbone, and become a permanent part of your mouth. Dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth because they are made of a metal that is highly compatible with the jawbone. As a result, the implant (a small post that protrudes from the gum) is able to fuse easily with the underlying bone. See our Smile Gallery for an illustration.
A highly experienced oral surgeon or periodontist recommended by our office will perform the surgical procedure for your implant. We will partner with your surgeon to follow your treatment to the restorative phase. You will then return to our dental office to complete the implant procedure. This will be done by attaching natural and functional tooth structures to the implant components, providing you once with the comforts and confidence that accompanies a beautiful smile.
