Tooth decay, gum disease, and trauma can all damage teeth, often causing pain that interferes with sleeping, eating, and working. Modern dentistry provides multiple options to restore damaged or missing teeth that are both durable and cosmetic. Our restorative services can repair or replace damaged teeth, allowing you to look and feel your best.
Bridges are a good option for patients that are missing one tooth or multiple teeth in a row. Dr. Fast can “bridge” the space with a fixed restoration made up of a false tooth/teeth that connect to crowns on the teeth on both sides of the space.
A crown is a cap that is custom-made to fit over your tooth. Crowning teeth may be indicated when they are cracked, broken, or weak and at risk of breaking. They can also be used for cosmetic reasons, like straightening, reshaping, or lightening teeth. We use all ceramic (metal-free) crowns made of the most durable and esthetic materials, and we carefully select a shade for restored teeth that will blend into your smile naturally.
When teeth decay and tooth structure is eaten away, the remaining cavities can be filled with a composite that is bonded to the tooth. Fillings are essential to stop the decay by removing the soft, bacteria-filled tooth structure so that the process doesn’t progress. They are also important to restore optimal appearance and function of teeth, as well as maintain your bite. Our high quality Nano-filled composite materials, the latest bonding technology, and a cutting edge Sonic-fill headpiece allow us to place void-free composites that last.
Dentures and Partials
Dentures and partials can be a practical and affordable alternative for patients that are missing teeth. Our staff will work with you to design custom dentures and partials that look natural, and fit as comfortably as possible.
Dental implants can be a great option to replace teeth. Not only do they have a great lifetime success rate, they look and feel like your natural teeth. An implant is a titanium “false root”, placed by your oral surgeon. After placement, we create a custom tooth to attach to the implant and fit your smile. It is nearly impossible to tell the difference between natural teeth and a restored implant.
