Restorative Dentistry Services

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a single-unit restoration that covers an entire damaged tooth. They are permanent non-removable options to help restore the normal form, function, and feel of natural teeth. Dentists usually places a dental crown on your tooth after repairing it with a root canal procedure. However, crowns are becoming more and more popular to correct cosmetic issues.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge can bring back a single tooth or even two or three teeth in a row. A bridge is a multi-unit restoration that can protect an existing tooth and replace missing teeth. The traditional bridge consists of a series of dental crowns that attach together. The crowns on either end anchor to the natural teeth at each end of the empty space in your mouth.

The crowns in between literally “bridge” the gap, restoring the full function and appearance of your mouth. Dental implants can also secure dental bridges to your mouth for extra stability.


Dentures can be a temporary or permanent removable option to replace missing teeth. They can aid in restoring a patient’s bite, smile, and facial support close to that of natural teeth and gums. However, a denture needs more maintenance and repair than other options.

We recommend seeing us twice a year, and bringing your denture with you to the appointment. We can clean and make necessary repairs at that time. Call us if sore spots develop or the appliance changes in fit.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a permanent replacement option for single teeth, multiple teeth, or all the teeth. In fact, implants are the most reliable long-term option when the patient properly maintains them. This multi-step procedure involves total integration of the implant to a patient’s jaw.

First there’s oral surgery, which typically takes several months to heal from. Once complete, the dentist permanently screws the replacement tooth or teeth onto the implant post.

Bone Grafting

For dental implants to be successful long-term, a patient must have enough healthy jawbone density to which the implants can fuse. Unfortunately, the jawbone often deteriorates after the patient looses the roots of the natural teeth. In this case, a patient may need a bone grafting procedure before the dentist can place dental implants.

We can graft artificial or donor bone material onto a section of your jawbone. The result will strengthen the jawbone after a few months. A bone graft can give dental implants the foundation they need to last for decades.

Periodontal Disease Treatment 

Periodontal disease treatment focuses on eliminating the infection that damages gums and bone. We provide scaling and root planing for deep cleaning and medication. In advanced cases, we may recommend surgical interventions. Gum surgery treatments restore gum health and prevent tooth loss.

TMJ Treatment

TMJ therapy addresses the pain and damage to the jaw joint and surrounding muscles. It offers pain and relief, realigns the jaw, and eases muscle stress. We create custom appliances to shield teeth and lessen jaw tension.

We also perform equilibration/occlusal adjustments to fix bite misalignments. For muscle-related issues, Dr. Erika Whitehouse offers Botox injections that directly relaxes tight jaw muscles and reduce pain. 

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Sleep apnea treatment aims to keep the airway open during sleep and prevent breathing pauses. We provide CPAP machines, which provide steady air pressure. Additionally, we provide oral appliances that adjust the position of the jaw and tongue. These treatments improve sleep quality, reduce snoring, and lower health risks from sleep disorders.
