Restorative Dental Services
Regarded as the most significant advancement in modern dentistry, implants can replace missing teeth permanently with a high degree of predictability and improved function and cosmetics. In most cases of replacing missing teeth today, implants are the preferred choice. We work closely with the implant surgeon and then restore the implant once fully integrated. Denture wearers can also benefit from implant support and retention of their dentures (particularly lower dentures, which tend to be loose).
Crowns are synthetic caps used to restore the natural shape, function, and aesthetic of a broken or cracked tooth. If you’ve recently had a restorative procedure like a root canal, a crown will help restore the tooth and prevent damage as well. Crowns are used on teeth that cannot be repaired with bonding materials.
We provide custom-fitting dentures to fit the individual needs and desires of each patient. Dr. Jones performs most of the lab procedures involved, including the setting of the denture teeth and try-in before final processing in acrylic. Custom dentures will get your smile looking and functioning like new again!
Periodontal Therapy (Root Canals)
When periodontal disease has infected the gum tissues, therapy is indicated. In early to moderate cases, treatment may consist of a non-surgical procedure called “scaling and root planing,” in which hard calcified deposits (calculus) are removed from below the gum line while numb with local anesthetic.
Dental bridges are a long-lasting restoration option if you are missing one or more teeth. They restore form and function to your smile by closing gaps and keeping your remaining teeth from shifting. This keeps your bite from misaligning, looking unsightly, and prevents pain from shifting teeth, gum disease, or TMJ.
Children often need protection of the deep grooves in newly erupted permanent molars. Sealants protect these vulnerable areas with a plastic coating which makes the tooth impervious to dental caries (decay).
Cosmetic Dental Services
Looking to boost the brightness of your smile? Professional bleaching techniques are proven safe, reliable methods of making smiles brighter without invasive procedures. The “walking bleach” technique is the recommended approach supported by current research and is most effective.
Veneers are a porcelain laminate that are bonded to the teeth to mimic the look and feel of your natural smile. Veneers can dramatically correct the look of severe discoloration or malformed teeth to recreate beautiful smiles and restore broken dentitions. Dr. Jones can help determine if veneers are right for you. Not only will your new smile be brighter and stronger, you’ll have the confidence of knowing you have a healthy smile!
Cosmetic Bonding and Fillings
Tooth-colored fillings (composite) on posterior teeth and direct bonding on anterior teeth provide dramatic cosmetic improvement over traditional amalgam (silver) fillings.
