Crowns function to preserve teeth that might otherwise fracture, break and become susceptible to loss. Bridges link the gap of where a tooth is missing. With CEREC technology we can deliver your crown to you in one appointment. No temporary crowns and no molds of your teeth are needed. Contact Us
All-on-4® I you are missing some or all of your teeth you may find that a full denture or partial denture may be you best option. With the addition of implants dentures become much more effective in retention and chewing. We recommend a denture that stays in all the time and is fastened secured to your implant, otherwise known as the All-on-4® denture. Contact us.
INLAYS AND ONLAYS
Dr. Gardner often sees teeth that are broken or have large fillings requiring a crown. However, in the right situation it may be beneficial to preserve more enamel by doing a porcelain onlay or inlay. Instead of “full coverage” or a crown that covers the entire tooth like a thimble we remove only the part of the tooth affected and replace that “puzzle piece” with a CAD/CAM milled porcelain restoration at the same appointment.

Cavities are filled in most cases with tooth colored filling material. There are rare occasions when metal fillings are requested or recommended. Dr. Gardner uses the latest techniques to detect and eliminate decay while preserving as much of your enamel as possible. Contact Us
