Fillings

If you’ve never had one before, it’s likely you’ll need at least one filling in your lifetime. Our team will carefully remove the decay from your tooth and fill it with a tooth-colored material. Composite fillings are placed in layers and cured with a special light. These types of fillings are mercury-free and better for your overall health.

Dental Crowns

If your tooth has suffered from severe trauma or decay, a dental crown may be used to completely cap it. Crowns may be composed of a variety of materials, including metal, porcelain, or ceramic. The most aesthetically appealing include porcelain or ceramic, due to their ability to match your natural tooth shade flawlessly.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are used to fill the gap left behind by missing teeth. Your restoration will consist of two or more dental crowns with false teeth between them. The crowns are permanently attached to your natural tooth or a dental implant and the false teeth will fit snugly into the empty space.

Dentures

We offer a variety of dentures right here at our Oakboro office. From traditional full and partial dentures to snap-on dentures to dental implants, we have something for everyone! If you’re missing teeth, we can create a custom-fitted denture to give you back a beautiful, functioning smile that looks natural!

Dental Implants

Implants are tiny posts that act as replacements for tooth roots. They are placed into the jawbone and create a foundation for replacement teeth to connect to. Implants are a permanent tooth replacement solution and we handcraft your tooth restorations to look and function like natural teeth, so most people won’t even be able to tell that they aren’t real!

Root Canal Therapy

While many people fear this procedure, root canals are extremely common and have a very high success rate. Our team will create a small hole in the crown of your tooth to remove the infection. We will then clean the canal and seal it back up to prevent further infection. If the structure of your tooth has been compromised, a dental crown may be placed as well.

Tooth Extractions

Our team practices a conservative approach to dentistry and we will exhaust all other restorative options before resorting to an extraction. If extraction is necessary, we will keep you as comfortable as possible throughout the process and provide you with detailed aftercare instructions.
