If you have a minor cavity in need of repair, instead of using a silver filling to fix it that will always stick out in your smile, Dr. Witek can instead place a tooth-colored filling made of composite resin. This material can be matched to the surrounding enamel so it ends up looking like natural dental structure, ensuring no one will notice your dental work. These fillings also help Dr. Witek preserve more enamel during placement, which will help the tooth stay stronger over time compared to a traditional filling.
When a tooth is severely damaged and on the brink of needing to be extracted, Dr. Witek can use a dental crown to save it. These tooth-shaped restorations fit directly over compromised teeth to protect them and replenish their shape and appearance all at the same time. Strong and durable metal crowns are ideal for the back teeth that need to withstand daily chewing forces, and all-porcelain crowns provide a natural-looking solution for the front teeth that allows a patient to smile with complete confidence.
One of the simplest and most effective ways to replace missing teeth is by using a dental bridge. This involves bonding a series of crowns together, with the ones on either end fitting over remaining teeth to provide stability for the prosthetic. Bridges can be used to restore one to three consecutive teeth in a row, and thanks to Dr. Witek’s attention to detail, his bridges seamlessly blend into the smile while also allowing a patient to chew whatever they like with ease.
After a patient loses a large number of teeth, it can be overwhelming to think about replacing them all. Thankfully, with the right denture from Dr. Witek, a patient can get back their bite and appearance with a single custom prosthetic. Partial dentures can be designed to comfortably fit between any remaining teeth, while a full denture can replace an entire row while sitting comfortably on the gums. Our dentures are made using lifelike acrylic teeth and gum tissue so they look great, fit securely, and can be trusted to last for many years to come.
