Full Mouth Rehabilitation

Full mouth rehabilitation is a custom combination of dental procedures that repairs a badly damaged set of teeth. Our prosthodontists often use it for people who were in a car accident or experienced some other form of oral trauma. Full mouth rehabilitation also helps people with multiple damaged or missing teeth due to an unhealthy bite, tooth decay, gum disease, oral cancer, and other conditions.

Dental Fillings

Dental fillings patch holes in your teeth. These holes often come from oral bacteria, whose excreted acid eats away your tooth enamel. We use composite fillings as well as ceramic inlays and onlays.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are powerful, versatile dental restorations. They are almost like a smile makeover in one procedure since they can address virtually every aesthetic concern you might have about your teeth, short of missing teeth. The results can be long-lasting: over 90% last a decade or more.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a convenient, quick, and inexpensive way to repair damaged teeth. Whether your teeth are chipped, cracked, or worn, dental bonding can help them look whole again quickly. Bonding can do almost everything veneers can do for a significantly lower price. The most important limitation is that dental bonding doesn’t last nearly as long.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are sheaths that fit over your teeth. They not only give your tooth a new, beautiful exterior, but they also strengthen, support, and protect your tooth. We most often use dental crowns when you have a badly damaged tooth. Dental crowns also top dental implants to replace a missing tooth. Sometimes, we use them for cosmetic purposes when a porcelain veneer does not work.

Dental Inlay and Onlay Restorations

Dental inlays and onlays are ceramic fillings. They can do everything a typical filling can but give more beautiful, longer-lasting results.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges replace one or more missing teeth using support from either natural teeth or dental implants. A dental bridge can replace any number of missing teeth, from just a single tooth to an entire arch of teeth. When a dental bridge replaces all your teeth with the support of dental implants, people will often call it an implant denture.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a chemical means to remove stains from your teeth. Whitening eliminates external stains from foods, beverages, and other compounds. Although the results may fade, they can be renewed.

Maxillofacial Prosthodontics

Maxillofacial prosthodontics helps the rehabilitation of patients with defects or disabilities caused by trauma, disease, or cancer. In addition, we offer support for people undergoing radiation therapy. This includes prosthetic devices to position or protect your facial structures for safer, more effective treatment.
