Dental restorations can take many forms. From simple dental crowns to dental bridges for missing teeth, restorative dental care can be beautiful and long lasting. Advancements in dental technology allow for restorations that are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

Composite Fillings

Rather than using unsightly amalgam metal fillings, which can also be problematic and leak over time, Dr. Perry uses composite or tooth-colored fillings. By using composite resin, cavities can be replaced using material that is shaded to match the existing tooth color. Dr. Perry can replace old metal fillings with tooth-colored fillings to enhance the beauty and functionality of your smile.

Dental Onlays

Dental onlays are used to repair damaged teeth when a filling is too large to be structurally sound. They are often a conservative method of repairing a tooth, when a full crown may not be needed. Onlays are custom fit, glazed and are bonded to the surface of the tooth. With proper care, onlays can last many years.

Dental Crowns

Crowns are dental restorations which completely cover a tooth or dental implant. They are sometimes referred to as “dental caps.” These are often needed when a cavity has damaged a tooth beyond repair of using fillings or onlays. Crowns are used to improve the strength and appearance of a tooth or teeth. Our dental office can help manage and place crowns on existing teeth, or over dental implants. Dr. Perry offers CEREC (CAD/CAM) technology which allows crowns to be made in the same day as your appointment. This technique to bring both comfort and convenience to patients who desire dental crowns as the solution to their dental needs.

Dental Bridges

Bridges are a great solution for gaps in teeth. A bridge consists of two or more dental crowns on either side of a missing tooth and literally bridge the gap with a ceramic tooth. Dental bridges can be crafted by using natural teeth or dental implants as the anchors. Bridges are a great alternative to dentures if the surrounding teeth are healthy enough to anchor the ceramic tooth.

Restore the health of your smile

Restorative dentistry can rejuvenate the ability to chew, talk and smile with comfort and confidence. Onlays, dental crowns and bridges can help maintain the shape of your jawline and face, properly distribute the forces in your bite, and prevent future damage to the surrounding teeth.
