Silver Fillings (Amalgams)

Silver fillings (Amalgams) are made from a combination of metals that include mercury, silver, tin, and copper. Dentists have used amalgam fillings for more than 100 years because they lasts a long time and are less expensive than other cavity-filling materials such as tooth-colored composites or gold fillings.

Because of their durability, these silver-colored fillings are often the best choice for large cavities or those that occur in the back teeth where a lot of force is needed to chew.

Tooth-Colored Fillings (Composites)

Tooth-colored fillings, also known as composites, are a fantastic alternative to silver fillings. Tooth-colored fillings can be placed on both front and back teeth and are an excellent and conservative treatment option to fix a decayed or chipped area of a tooth. Because they are custom-matched to each individual tooth, it is nearly impossible to ever tell treatment was completed.

Veneers

Porcelain Veneers are becoming an increasingly common cosmetic procedure.
Veneers are extremely thin, custom made shells of ceramic material that are bonded to the fronts of teeth to correct the shape, color, or size of a tooth without having to do a full crown.

Teeth Whitening

We offer both in-office and at-home tooth whitening options. Our in-office option takes about 2 hours and offers immediate results. Our at-home whitening system is often just as effective and can be done at your leisure. Dramatic results with our at-home whitening system are often seen in as little as 10 days.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial device that is placed into the bone of your jaw to hold a replacement tooth. Dental implants are a permanent and ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost one tooth or multiple teeth.

A dental implant is a common, less-invasive alternative to a bridge and can even be used to anchor, support, and stabilized dentures.

Crowns

Dr. Ryan custom-fabricates most crowns in the office using his CEREC machine. Our crowns are all porcelain which result in a more healthy, beautiful and natural-looking smile.  The best part is, we can complete the crown from start to finish in just one appointment!

Bridges

A bridge fills a space that a tooth previously occupied. It consists of a false tooth attached to crowns placed on the teeth adjacent to the space. A bridge may be necessary to maintain tooth alignment and to avoid jaw problems, as well as to improve appearance and function. A bridge will also provide a dramatic aesthetic transformation.

Inlays & Onlays

Inlays and onlays are two methods of restoring normal tooth structure after decay or other damage. Inlays and onlays are a more conservative and less expensive option than a full crown.

Root Canal Treatments

Root Canal Treatment disinfects the infected tooth when the root canal of a tooth becomes infected or damaged due to decay or trauma.

A root canal is an excellent alternative to an extraction, as it allows you to keep your tooth. Root canal treatment can weaken a tooth, so a crown is almost always recommended after the root canal treatment is complete.

Tooth Extractions

An extraction is the removal of a tooth or teeth. The space where the tooth was removed can be filled with a dental implant, bridge, or denture.

Dentures

Complete and Partial Dentures
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth. There are two types of dentures available – complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth still remain. Replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. Without support from the denture, facial muscles sag and can make a person appear much older. Dentures allow the patient to be able to eat and speak with ease, which is often taken for granted until a person loses their teeth.

Implant-Supported Dentures
An implant-supported denture is a type of denture that is supported by and attached to dental implants. The denture is still removable but can be clasped to the dental implants for better support and function. This feature increases confidents in patients because they can generally speak more clearly, chew foods with more ease, and do not have to worry about the denture coming loose.
