Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment, is a dental procedure in which the diseased or damaged nerve of a tooth is removed so that the tooth can be saved.

Crowns or caps are used to restore broken or cracked teeth. The new metal-free crowns, particularly for front teeth, eliminate the ugly black line you may have seen next to the gum line on older crowns.
Porcelain veneers offers the ultimate in esthetics. A veneer is a thin facing or covering that bonds to the natural tooth structure. A much more conservative alternative to crowns (caps) that can give you the smile you have always dreamed of. If your teeth are chipped, broken, or discolored, porcelain veneers are a great way to change the color and shape of your teeth. Veneers can be a great alternative to braces for slight orthodontic problems and provide a beautiful smile in a short amount of time.
There are two types of dentures: partial and complete dentures. Both types are made in a dental lab, based on a mould (or impression) of your mouth. A partial denture is made up of one or more false teeth and held in place by clasps that fit onto nearby healthy teeth. It has to be removed at night and for cleaning. A partial denture may be used when nearby teeth are not strong enough to hold a bridge or when more than just a few teeth are missing.
A dental appliance that is permanently cemented onto adjacent teeth to replace one or more missing teeth. A bridge may be recommended if you're missing one or more teeth. Gaps left by missing teeth eventually cause the remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the empty spaces, resulting in a bad bite. The imbalance caused by missing teeth can also lead to gum disease and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.
Implants are an increasingly popular alternative to dentures and bridges. Restoring your smile to its natural beauty has never been easier. Implants provide the most advanced solution for missing teeth, allowing you to talk, eat and smile with absolute confidence. They have many advantages, including their natural appearance, improved comfort and unequaled convenience. If you are considering implants, we can discuss the considerations and help you make the decision that is right for you.
