Restorative Dentistry


Bearded white patient checking out his handsome smile in a mirror while sitting in a dental chairAt Pleasant Valley Dentistry, our goal is to prevent dental problems before they occur. Unfortunately, this is not always possible due to poor oral hygiene, genetics, infrequent checkups, and other risk factors. This is why we also specialize in restorative dentistry. Our restorative services are designed to improve the function and esthetics of your smile, as well as your overall oral health.

Dental Filling


Dental fillings are the best way to restore minor to moderate instances of tooth decay. Most fillings these days consist of a material known as composite resin. Composite resin is an esthetically-pleasing material that we color-match to the existing shade of your enamel. For this reason, a composite filling is virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your tooth.

Dental Crown


A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that improves the structure and cosmetics of a damaged or decayed tooth. During the procedure, your tooth must be completely reshaped to accommodate the shape of the crown. Once the tooth is reshaped, we will permanently cement the crown on the tooth using a special adhesive. Many crowns are fabricated these days with porcelain, due to its unmatched esthetics.

Dental Bridge


A dental bridge is a tooth replacement that typically consists of two dental crowns linked together by a pontic, or false tooth. A traditional bridge is supported by the two surrounding teeth, known as abutment teeth, that we reshape to receive the crowns. A bridge can also be supported by a series of dental implants if multiple adjacent teeth are missing. If you are missing a tooth, a bridge will prevent the remaining teeth from shifting out of their proper position.

Dentures


A denture is a removable appliance that is usually used to replace one or more missing teeth. A partial denture usually attaches to the surrounding teeth with metal clasps. A complete denture consists of a gum-colored acrylic base that supports a complete arch of prosthetic teeth. We offer custom-fit dentures as a more comfortable, functional, and durable solution.

Inlays & Onlays


Inlays and onlays are ideal for areas of decay too large for a filling, but not large enough to require the placement of a dental crown. The restoration is considered an inlay if it is placed within the biting (occlusal) surface of a tooth. The restoration is considered an onlay if it extends beyond one or more of the tooth tips (cusps).

Tooth Extraction


There are two types of tooth extractions: simple and surgical. Our doctors will determine which type of extraction is appropriate and may determine a referral is necessary to ensure a safe outcome.

If the space left behind after an extraction is not properly managed, it can lead to long-term complications with the bone and surrounding teeth. This is why our doctors may recommend a bone graft and discuss tooth replacement options with you, if interested.

Root Canal


A root canal can be a good alternative to save a tooth from extraction. We may recommend a root canal if an infection has spread to the "pulpy" center of the tooth that contains nerves and other tissues. Once the infection has been removed, we fill the canals with a safe, sterile material known as gutta-percha. A tooth that has received root canal treatment typically needs to be capped with a crown to minimize its chances of breaking.
