A popular restorative procedure for patients with missing teeth, dental implants are a permanent solution that provides strength, longevity and whole-mouth revitalization. Dental implants are titanium roots that are surgically embedded into the jawbone, which later fuse with the bone during a healing period. After healing, replacement teeth are added on top for a dazzling finish. Read more about how dental implants can help you.
Crowns are used in situations where broken, cracked or weak teeth need to be completed or fortified. The crown completely caps the weak/broken tooth. Our crowns are mercury-free, can help restore power to your bite, and can bring vitality to the whole mouth by adding structure. Our crowns come in different materials, such as gold alloy, Zirconium, or composite material.
Are you missing one or several teeth? Bridges are restorations that are permanently secured to adjacent teeth in order to replace missing teeth. Dr. Erwin may also use dental implants to anchor your bridge. These restorations “bridge” the gap between healthy surrounding teeth, completing your smile.
If you are missing nearly all of your teeth–or even all your teeth–dentures may be the prime solution for you. Our dentures are made from materials that are compatible with your body. Furthermore, our dentures are custom-crafted to fit your mouth like a glove.
If you have a cavity or have experienced decay, you might need an inlay, onlay or filling to complete the part of the tooth that is missing. These treatments are all made from a resin that your body is compatible with. We never use amalgam fillings because of the presence of mercury in them. In fact, we offer safe amalgam removal if you would like to replace your old fillings.
If your smile is badly damaged from decay and tooth loss, then you may need a full-mouth reconstruction. Dr. Erwin will decipher what mix of procedures may benefit you the most, including fillings, dental implants, bridges, etc. Our biological dentistry is committed to restoring your smile by using treatments that are minimally invasive and cohesive with the natural biology of your body.
