It’s great news that the incidence of tooth decay has significantly diminished over the years due to the use of fluorides and an increase in patient awareness. However, teeth are still susceptible to decay, infection, and breakage and sometimes need to be restored back to health. Through improved techniques and modern technology, we here at Ascent Family Dentistry are now able to offer more options for restoring a tooth back to its normal shape, appearance and function.
Should your teeth ever require restorative treatment, you can rest assured knowing that we will always discuss with you the available options, and recommend what we believe to be the most comfortable and least invasive treatment. Our restorative treatments range from tooth colored or silver fillings, to single unit crowns and multi-unit bridges, to the restoration of crowns after implant placement.
