    • Stronger and longer lasting than traditional composite fillings

  • Crowns

    • Full coverage "caps" that cover the coronal structure of the tooth

Appliances to retain and protect the function of the teeth include:

  • Night Guards (bruxism "grinding" appliances)

    • Custom fitted to either the top or bottom teeth
    • Protects the teeth from grinding against each other, helping to prevent wear and reduce sensitivity
    • Allows the jaw muscles to relax and reduce stress on the jaw joints to decrease pain and inflammation
    • Made of a hard acrylic so that it doesn't promote clenching like soft, squishy, appliances do

  • Sports Guards

    • Custom fitted to the top teeth
    • Cushion traumatic forces on the jaw received during sports to reduce trauma to the jaws, jaw joints, and to reduce the chance of concussion
