Restorations

Amalgam Fillings- A silver amalgam filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc.  The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a silver filling.  As with most dental restorations, amalgam fillings are not permanent and may someday need replacement.  They are very durable, and will last many years, giving you a long lasting smile.

 

Composite Fillings- A composite (tooth colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc.  The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling.  As with most dental restorations, composite fillings are not permanent and may someday have to be replaced.  They are very durable, and will last many years, giving you a long lasting, beautiful smile.

 

Dental Crowns – Prosthetic crowns are generally made from porcelain, metal or a combination of the two.  They have been designed to mimic the natural crown (surface of the tooth) and can last for up to a decade, and possibly longer. Dr. Hill can make dental crowns in office with the technology using a cerec machine.

 

Dental Bridges – Conventional and cantilever bridges are used to support a prosthetic tooth.  The natural teeth can support the bridge if they are in good condition, or dental implants may be used as anchors.

 

Complete Dentures – A complete set of dentures can be created for people who have no teeth due to gum disease or trauma.  Complete dentures restore functionality to the mouth and make chewing and speaking easier.

 

Partial Dentures – Where many teeth have been lost, removable or fixed partial dentures can prove to be an excellent option.  They enhance the aesthetics of the smile in addition to improving chewing abilities.
