Composite fillings, crowns, or a dental bridge can save your smile
We Have a Wide Variety of Services
Are you satisfied with the health of your smile? If you have tooth pain or are having difficulty chewing properly, your tooth structure may be compromised by decay, disease, or injury. Restorative dentistry can repair the structure of your smile and in the process, improve its appearance.
Dr. Stephen Eriksen utilizes composite fillings, crowns, and bridges to improve your smile by:
- Filling a cavity
- Replacing a missing tooth
- Improving a badly worn or eroded tooth
- Repairing a cracked or broken tooth
- Replacing metal fillings
- Covering a poorly shaped or severely stained tooth
Composite Fillings for Tooth Decay
Fillings That Look Like Your Natural Teeth
The resin material used for composite fillings is colored to match the shade of your teeth. This allows the filling to blend in, seamlessly repairing your smile without the gray cast of metal. The resin is also placed in layers, with each layer bonding to both your tooth structure and the layer below it. This strengthens your tooth while it fills your cavity, providing improved appearance and function.
Solutions for Badly Damaged or Missing Teeth
Crowns may be recommended for a variety of issues, including:
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Weak or severely decayed teeth
- Overly large fillings
- Badly stained teeth
- Root canals
- Dental implants
Crowns Can Save a Badly Damaged Tooth
A dental crown is a custom fit cap for your tooth. Designed to match the surrounding teeth, a crown is bonded over your existing tooth structure to improve the health and appearance of your smile.
Dental Bridges Replace Your Missing Teeth
With a bridge, Dr. Eriksen can provide you with a permanent tooth replacement. A bridge is made up of customized crown units, fused together. The crowns at either end of the bridge can be bonded to your natural teeth, allowing the middle crown to span the gap and preserve the appearance and function of your smile.
