COMPOSITE FILLINGS

Composite fillings are natural tooth colored fillings. Used to repair decay, cracks and fractures, they are the most widely used fillings today. Composite fillings bond to the existing tooth structure and strengthen the restoration unlike the traditional silver filling which may weakened the tooth.

CROWNS

A crown is a beautiful porcelain restoration. A crown will protect and strengthen a tooth by encasing the entire tooth and restoring the tooth to its original shape and size. Crowns are used if there is inadequate tooth structure to support a composite restoration. You can expect your crown to be highly durable and last many years.

PORCELAIN FIXED BRIDGES

Porcelain bridges are beautiful natural looking restorations that can fill spaces where a tooth has been removed or lost. Once a bridge is created, it’s permanently put in place. Left unrepaired, a missing tooth may cause remaining teeth to shift, bite issues, jaw problems or even periodontal disease.

 

DENTAL IMPLANTS

Dental implants are also a wonderful solution for replacing missing teeth. The implant and its restoration replace both a lost tooth and its root. Dental implants will integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and intact. Implants are long lasting, aesthetic and easy to clean. Dental implants are so natural looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth.

DENTURES

Dentures are needed when a patient is missing most or all of their natural teeth. There are two types, implant supported dentures and removable dentures. Implant supported dentures are fixed to the implants and are only removed by the dentist. For patients who are missing all of their teeth, implant supported dentures allow them to have teeth that stay in place, function similar to natural teeth and look beautiful. The new “All on 4 Technology” allow us to remove patient teeth, place implants and a beautiful attached denture all

in one day.

 

A more traditional removable denture is also an option when a patient is missing teeth. When all of the teeth are missing, complete dentures are used while partial dentures tend to work best when few natural teeth still remain. The retention of removable dentures can be greatly improved with the support of dental implants.

RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY

“I hadn't liked the look of my teeth for years. My son recommended Dr. Monssen, and we discussed all my options. I decided to restore my entire dentition, and now I enjoy smiling with my new, natural-looking teeth. Thank you!"
