What is my best option for tooth replacement?
If you have lost one or more teeth, we have several options for replacement. The crown and bridge are traditional methods, but nothing replaces teeth better than dental implants. The method that’s right for you depends on your oral and overall health as well as your budget and personal smile goals.
Do I need a root canal?
You need a root canal when tooth decay has reached the pulp, or interior, of your tooth. You probably won't be able to tell if you need one on your own, though. It’s best to call your dentist anytime you have a persistent toothache or sensitivity.
Should I get porcelain veneers?
If you have imperfect front teeth that are otherwise healthy, porcelain veneers can be a terrific option. They cover up cosmetic flaws to improve the size, shape, and overall appearance of the teeth that show when you smile.

Call us immediately! Seeking emergency attention after the loss of one or more teeth is crucial to saving the tooth and relieving your pain. Collect the tooth and keep it moist (either in the cheek or in a cup of milk/water) until you can reach our office.
