When seeking out a dentist, most patients want someone who can use minimally invasive, therapeutic approaches to rebuilding their smile. PK Dentistry provides comprehensive, restorative care that not only functions great, but it looks great too. We want you to feel confident about your teeth, that’s why we provide a wide variety of treatments based on the needs of each patient.
Tooth colored composite fillings bond directly to tooth enamel. That means they require less tooth preparation and are less invasive than traditional metal fillings. White fillings can be placed on any tooth in the mouth, or used to replace old amalgam fillings.
If a tooth has decayed so much that a filling isn’t appropriate, but is still sound enough that it doesn’t need a crown, then an inlay or onlay is the perfect choice. Our porcelain inlays and onlays are sometimes called “three quarter crowns” because they restore a large portion of the tooth while maximizing structurally healthy enamel.
Utilizing ceramic materials allows us to create full coverage dental crowns that look just like regular teeth and blend in with your smile. Ceramic crowns are made to withstand normal use and are perfect for restoring teeth in the front of the mouth when severe decay, trauma, or root canal therapy has been completed.
One or two missing teeth doesn’t have to mean the end of your smile. Ceramic dental bridges are perfect for replacing teeth when there are healthy teeth on either side of the area. Similar to a crown, ceramic bridges are supported by two healthy teeth with pontic crowns fused between them, spanning the space of 3 or 4 teeth.
Replacing several teeth at one time can be done effectively by creating a partial denture. Partial dentures are designed to look just like natural teeth, and are securely held in place around your existing teeth and jaws. They can be used to replace several teeth across your smile with just a single prosthesis. One of the biggest benefits of our metal free partials is that they help us to maximize the number of healthy teeth still present in your mouth.
Complete ceramic dentures are perfect for patients that need to replace all of their teeth at one time. We feel that appearance is just as important as function, so we take extreme care in designing dentures that look great as well as keep you eating and speaking as normally as possible.
Dental implants are perfect for replacing any number of teeth. We partner with an implant surgeon for the placement of artificial implant roots, and deliver the final implant prosthesis here in our office. Crowns, bridges, and even full dentures can be supported by dental implants. Our implant-retained dentures are a wonderful option for patients that want a minimally invasive, natural way to restore their entire smile at once.
We complete endodontic therapy services here in our office, allowing us to provide start to finish restorative care for our patients with more complex dental needs. Root canals help restore your tooth from the inside out, when nerves have been damaged by decay, trauma, or infection.
Routine dental extractions as well as select wisdom tooth removal procedures are a common need for many dental patients. We focus on keeping you comfortable during and after your surgical dental extractions.
