Locally owned and operated for more than 30 years, we're committed to providing all our clients in Fairbanks, AK the very best in dental care. Our primary goal is to develop a treatment plan that will help you keep your teeth for life.
Having examined your teeth and evaluated your medical and dental history, we are prepared to provide treatment plan options. Restorative dentistry includes the treatment of fillings, root canal therapy, crowns, bridges, partials and dentures.
We place composite (white) and amalgam (silver) fillings to restore decayed teeth to replace corroded, old and leaking feelings.
Root canal therapy
When a tooth becomes damaged by a large cavity or a crack in the tooth, a root canal may be the best viable option. Root canal removes the nerve of the tooth and requires a crown to be placed on the tooth to prevent the tooth from fracturing.
Crowns can serve many purposes including: protecting teeth that have large fillings to prevent tooth fracturing, restoring teeth that have already fractured and providing a complete “makeover” for affected teeth.
Dental bridges are regularly used to replace missing teeth. Having a bridge can prevent shifting in the alignment of teeth, lower the risk of periodontal disease and bony defects and resist the tendency towards arch collapse.
Partial dentures can replace missing teeth. Providing lip support, aiding with chewing and preventing the face from sagging, partial dentures serve multiple purposes.
After all teeth have been fully extracted, conventional dentures are then placed in the mouth. Using an exceptional dental lab in Washington State that fabricates natural and beautiful dentures, you will be certain to have dentures that look and feel great.
Smile make over
Having done hundreds of smile makeovers, our office has years of experience. Many people are not happy with their smile or are self conscious about their smile. Working closely with our dental lab, we ensure that our patients have a beautiful smile that looks and feels natural.
