Restorative Dental Treatments Include:

Dental Implants: Dental implants restore one or more missing teeth. Tooth implants provide the same anchoring support of a natural tooth root, and are topped by an artificial tooth that looks like your surrounding teeth. Dental implants are one of the most successful restorative and cosmetic dental procedures. For more detailed information on implants, take a look at our dental implants site.

dental crowns and dental bridgesPorcelain Crowns: Porcelain dental crowns are artificial teeth that are carefully shaped and colored to match your natural teeth. Crowns, also known as ‘caps,’ restore functionality to severely damaged teeth. Each dental crown is made of a durable porcelain material that offers chewing support and protection from further tooth decay when placed over the existing damaged tooth.

Dental Veneers: Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-like ceramic shells that adhere to the front of your teeth. Veneers restore misaligned, cracked, chipped, and discolored teeth. Prepless veneers offer the same aesthetic results, but require less preparatory shaving of the natural tooth enamel. We have more information about our dental veneers on our porcelain veneer site.

Bonding: Dental bonding is an ideal restorative solution for teeth that are slightly chipped or cracked. An enamel-like resin is adhered and sculpted to the front of the damaged tooth, covering up the chip or crack.

Dental Bridges: Dental bridges are a common restoration procedure used to fill the space of one or more missing teeth. Whether supported by a dental implant or a partial denture, a dental bridge restores functionality and appearance to your smile with an artificial tooth.

Prosthodontics: Prosthodontics is a dental field that focuses on the creation and fitting of artificial replacements of the teeth and mouth. Dental implants, porcelain veneers, and dental crowns are all prosthodontic procedures used to restore functionality to the mouth.

Dental Fillings: As one of the most common restorative procedures, dental fillings repair decay and cracks in teeth. Routine dental checkups are important so that Dr. Hovden can detect and restore these slightly damaged teeth.
