A dental crown is a custom tooth-shaped cap that fits over the entire visible portion of a tooth. It can protect a damaged tooth from further harm while renewing its form and function. A dental bridge is able to replace a missing tooth altogether. It consists of two crowns, which get placed over the teeth next to the empty space, as well as an artificial tooth that “bridges” the gap.

Traditional metal fillings, sometimes called silver fillings or amalgam fillings, come with some significant drawbacks, including that they clash with the natural color of the teeth around them. Many patients are also concerned about the mercury in metal fillings. Tooth-colored fillings, on the other hand, blend in seamlessly with the surrounding dentition. They also come with a reduced risk of dental sensitivity, are entirely free of mercury, and require less tooth preparation than their metal counterparts.
A traditional full denture is a removable prosthetic that replaces an entire arch of lost teeth. It consists of a gum-colored base that supports acrylic or porcelain teeth. Natural suction or a mild adhesive secures it in the mouth. A partial denture replaces multiple teeth at various places throughout a dental arch. Small metal attachments help it to remain in place. We design full and partial dentures with function, aesthetics, and comfort at the forefront of our minds.
The traditional process for designing and placing a crown requires at least two dental appointments. At All Dental, however, we have the technology to provide crowns in a single visit. We use state-of-the-art technology to create a digital impression of the teeth. Then, we utilize advanced software to design the restoration. Our in-house ceramic milling unit fabricates the crown, which we can attach to the patient’s tooth right away. This streamlined process saves time for our patients and eliminate the need for them to wear a temporary restoration.
If you have multiple or complex dental problems, we may be able to address them via full mouth reconstruction. We begin by evaluating your teeth, gums, and jaw. Then, we design a custom treatment plan to help you regain a functional and beautiful smile. Some of the procedures that might be involved in the full mouth reconstruction process include gum disease treatment, extractions, dental implants (or another tooth replacement solution), and cosmetic services.
