Fillings

Made of tooth-colored material; composite fillings restore the teeth's natural beauty. Composite fillings can be matched very closely to your natural tooth color and are virtually indistinguishable from non-restored teeth. The composites we use have proven to be extremely durable and stain resistant.

Onlays

When you do not need a full crown, onlays may be the solution. The onlay procedure is a restoration in which composite, porcelain, or gold is applied to a tooth surface to provide support as a conservative treatment option. Our patients who have had onlays have given us positive comments about their appearance.

Usually customized from porcelain, veneers are thin, semi-translucent facings bonded to the front teeth. Veneers are durable, stain-resistant, and natural looking. They conceal broken, chipped, discolored, crooked, and misshapen teeth, and provide you with the winning smile you have always wanted.

Crowns

A crown is a restorative that covers a tooth in order to strengthen it as well as restore the tooth to its normal shape and size. A crown may be placed to support a large filling when there is little remaining tooth structure, attach a bridge, protect weak teeth from fracturing, or restore fractured teeth. A tooth that has been treated with root canal therapy will require a crown following treatment to provide strength and support to the tooth. We only use materials for crowns that will provide the longest lasting benefits to our patients. We take pride in the tremendous cosmetic results that we achieve with our crowns.

Bridge

A fixed bridge, usually made of gold (or porcelain-faced gold), is used to replace missing teeth. A bridge helps to create a normal bite, prevent stress on the dental arch, prevent the drifting and tilt of adjacent teeth, inhibit decay in difficult areas, and slow the onset of periodontal diseases. Bridges are composed of abutments (the sound attached to that framework). Our patients appreciate the expertise and training that Dr. Graham has in thisĀ field as well as success with her patients.

Advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. Digital radiography is a form of x-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Also less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography.
