our office is mercury free. that is to say we do not place amalgam, or silver, fillings. we place only tooth colored, composite fillings and have had great results and satisfaction from these esthetic and durable fillings.
a root canal is a dental procedure used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. during a root canal, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will eventually become infected and abscesses may form.
there are many types of dental crowns. we offer various types depending on the specific needs and desires of our patients. some of these include : porcelain fused to high noble metal, all porcelain, zirconia, full cast( all metal crowns).
