ServicesMore people are depending on a bright smile to open doors and close deals than ever. Healthy teeth make a lasting impression on others and boost confidence. We offer several cosmetic options to create a brilliant smile from whitening to porcelain veneers or crowns. We can help you decide on your best option for the best results.
DENTAL RESTORATION: Crowns provide complete coverage of the tooth adding strength and beauty to your smile. If your tooth has fractured, has a large cavity, an old crown has failed or you would like to improve your teeth's appearance, a custom-made crown can be used to restore your tooth.
Bonding allows you to re-create one tooth or transform your entire smile! By adhering a porcelain or composite veneer to the front of your teeth, Dr. Edwards can enhance the color, shape or size which also protects your teeth from additional wear and damage.
Fillings are used to restore a portion of a tooth damaged by decay or tramatic injury. Silver and gold fillings used to be our only choices for restoring decayed teeth. Today, technology provides for white, natural looking fillings using composite resin. Because composites are bonded, you retain more of your natural, healthy tooth.
Implants are metal posts or frames that are surgically placed beneath your gums which fuse to the bone of your jaw and act as artificial roots. Since they fuse to the jawbone, they offer stable support and won't slip or shift in your mouth. This secure fit allows for a more comfortable, natural feel.
