Restorative Dentistry: Renew the Function and Beauty of Your Smile
Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically placed in the jaw. Over the course of several months, the implants fuse with surrounding bone and mimic artificial tooth roots. As a result, they can provide a lifetime of support for dental crowns, bridges, and dentures.
Also known as the Prettau® bridge, a zirconia implant-supported bridge is used to replace an entire row of teeth. Zirconia implant bridges are extremely lifelike and durable, and they are supported by five or six dental implants. Your restoration will be closely matched to the shade of your smile.
If you have extensive dental damage or missing teeth, an entirely customized full mouth reconstruction can improve your dental function. Drs. McIntyre and Whiting have completed specialized courses in full mouth reconstruction at the Kois Center in Seattle and can handle even the most complex cases.
Traditional dental bridges have effectively replaced missing teeth for millions of patients. These restorations are made from multiple artificial teeth that have been fused together. Secured by dental crowns on each end, a traditional bridge can replace up to three consecutive teeth.
A dental crown is a custom cap that completely covers the surface of a damaged or decayed tooth. We can create traditional crowns alongside our trusted dental laboratory, or craft same-day crowns in-office using our CEREC® machine.
Dentures can replace several teeth or an entire arch. We proudly offer several types of dentures to meet the diverse needs and budgets of our patients. If you are seeking one of the most advanced and comfortable dentures available, we can provide a Strickland Fountain of Youth Denture™.
In cases where a filling cannot adequately restore a damaged tooth, an inlay or onlay can provide an effective solution. An inlay covers the chewing surfaces of a tooth, while an onlay extends beyond the edges. We offer tooth-colored restorations made from natural-looking composite.
A filling can restore the strength and appearance of a tooth after treatment for decay. Although we can provide traditional amalgam fillings, the majority of our patients choose to receive tooth-colored composite fillings. Composite fillings blend with teeth and form a more secure bond than metal.
