Teeth are protected by enamel, which is by far the hardest substance in your body. It doesn’t break easily, but once it does, it doesn’t have any means to repair itself. Instead, we’ll need to either repair or replace it with one of our customized dental restorations. Dr. Gizachew will take great care to make sure each restoration fits perfectly in your mouth and matches the rest of your teeth so that you don’t have to feel insecure about smiling.

Fillings are among the most basic restorations; they’re used to replace the dental structure that was lost to tooth decay. Our dental office makes fillings out of composite resin that has been shaded so that it’s the same color as the tooth. Unlike a metal filling, composite resin can bond directly to the tooth itself, so there’s no need for undercutting to hold it in place. As a result, the filling won’t just protect your tooth; it will strengthen it as well.
A dental crown is like a cap for your tooth, and it can be attached for any number of reasons. You might need one to stop a cracked tooth from fracturing further, or you might have one placed for purely cosmetic reasons. In either case, the crown will be designed to resemble a real tooth as closely as possible. Also, if you need a natural-looking replacement for one to three teeth in a row, then we can take a pair of crowns along with prosthetic teeth and use them to construct a dental bridge.
Bridges are used to replace one or a few teeth at a time. But of course, tooth loss isn’t always that limited; it’s completely possible for most or even all of your permanent teeth to be lost to physical trauma or oral health issues. In order to chew and speak normally afterwards, you’ll need dentures. Modern dentures are designed with comfort and aesthetics in mind so that you have no problems showing your new teeth off in public.
