Tooth-Colored Fillings

Composed of porcelain and composite resin, these new tooth-colored restorations bond directly to the tooth, strengthening it by restoring most of its original shape. The restorations can even be custom-colored to match your teeth to help give you the most natural-looking smile possible.

These new restorations require less removal of your healthy tooth structure to place than those with amalgams and especially with new cavities. Dramatically smaller holes are needed with a tooth-colored restoration. They are also healthier because no traces of mercury are used, unlike silver amalgams.

Non-Surgical Periodontal Treatment


  1. Numbing the tooth to remove the decay in or around it.
  2. Re-sculpturing the tooth to provide an ideal fit for the crown.
  3. Making an impression of your teeth in order to create a custom-made crown.
  4. Making a temporary crown out of acrylic resin and fitting it onto the tooth during the interim period while the custom-made crown is being created.
  5. Applying the custom-made crown (when received from the lab) by removing the temporary crown and fitting the custom-made one onto the tooth.
  6. After ensuring that the crown has the proper look and fit, we will permanently cement it into place.

Once the procedure is completed, proper dental hygiene, including daily brushing and flossing, is required to maintain healthy, bacteria-free teeth, gums and crowns.  This helps in the prevention of gum disease.  Given proper care, your crowns can last a lifetime.


Scaling and Root Planning

The goal of scaling and root is to eliminate the source of periodontal infection by removing the plaque, tartar, and bacterial toxins from the root surfaces of the teeth below the gum line.  When you have active periodontal disease, routine cleanings are not enough because they generally remove plaque and tartar from above the gumline only. To keep you comfortable, we usually numb the area before root planing begins. Using specialized instruments, we carefully and meticulously remove the plaque and tartar around and beneath the gum line, and then smooth the root surfaces.  This removes the source of infection and helps your gums heal.  

As they heal, your gums will tighten around your teeth. We may schedule scaling and root planing over several appointments.  This way, we can promote your comfort, check the healing, and help you fine-tune your homecare efforts.
