Porcelain Restorations

Inlays, Onlays, and Crowns are simple solutions for major dental problems caused by decay, wear and tear or accidents.  Porcelain restorations are an extremely reliable technique for repairing and restoring the tooth to its original form and function.  When incorporated, these restorations can help replace missing tooth structure, provide a strong functional bite and restore your smile.  Our goal is to provide dentistry that is not only durable, but natural appearing.  

Most single porcelain restorations are SAME DAY RESTORATIONS, fabricated in-office utilizing CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) technology.  Here is what to expect during your appointment:

  • We make you comfortable and prepare the tooth
  • Take a digital scan of the prepared tooth and surrounding teeth/bite
  • Send the digital model to our in-office milling unit 
  • The milling unit fabricates the restoration out of a block of pressed porcelain
  • Bite and fit are verified
  • The porcelain restoration is custom stained and glazed by the dentist to match your existing teeth
  • Porcelain restoration is permanently cemented 

If you feel you have old, ugly, leaky, discolored dental crowns and fillings; we can replace them with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth!


  • Saves time, no second appointment
  • No messy impressions needed
  • No temporary required
  • Leave with final restoration


  • When Accidental damage has occurred, or when an accident results in the loss of teeth
  • When teeth are chipped and broken down as a result of excessive wear
  • To support a large filling when little natural tooth structure remains
  • To protect a tooth following root canal treatment
  • To cover and complete a dental implant
  • To restore your ability to speak, eat and chew
  • To replacing a removable partial denture
  • To prevent the remaining natural teeth from moving out of position
  • To treat pain on biting due to hairline cracks (Cracked Tooth Syndrome)
  • To enhance the beauty of your smile

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth.

There are several types of bridges.  You and your dentist will discuss the best options for your particular case.  A bridge consists of two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached to pontics (artificial teeth), filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth. 

Dental bridges are highly durable and will last many years; however, they may need replacement or need to be re-cemented due to normal wear.


  • Fill space of missing teeth.
  • Maintain facial shape.
  • Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
  • Restore chewing and speaking ability.
  • Restore your smile.
  • Upgrade from a removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.


Getting a bridge usually requires two visits.  While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a portion of enamel to allow for a crown.  Next, a digital scan or a highly accurate impression (mold) is made, which will be sent to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be fabricated.  In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and worn for several weeks until your next appointment.

At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully checked, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a proper fit.  Occasionally your dentist may only temporarily cement the bridge, allowing your teeth and tissue time to get used to the new bridge.  The new bridge will be permanently cemented at a later time.

You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of the procedure.  Proper brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new, permanent bridge.
