Dental fillings used to be quite an eyesore to an otherwise perfect smile. Metallic or amalgam fillings used to be the standard in the dental industry, but now we have tooth-colored composite fillings. We select composite dental fillings right here in our office to match the color of your teeth exactly. Because of the unique properties of the composite resin, we can save more of your healthy tooth and no one will ever know that you had a cavity. Read More About Fillings
The same composite resin that we use to make tooth-colored fillings can be used to fix chipped or discolored teeth. It can also be used to fill in gaps between your teeth. If a tooth that is featured prominently in your smile is damaged or unsightly for whatever reason, we can probably fix it using dental composite bonding. Read More About Composite Bonding
If you have a tooth that has experienced serious decay or damage you may need a crown. A dental crown is a specially crafted cap that looks and acts just like your natural tooth. Your natural tooth is prepared, and the dental crown is placed on top of your natural tooth. Dental crowns look just like natural teeth and allow you to eat and speak as you normally would.

When a single tooth or several teeth have been lost, we are often able to replace them using a dental bridge. A dental bridge is permanently cemented on adjacent teeth or dental implants and can replace missing teeth. Dental bridges are permanent dental prostheses that restore your ability to eat and speak as you did before tooth loss. Best of all, dental bridges look just like your real teeth!

Dental implants are the very best way to replace missing teeth permanently because they replace everything from the root to the crown of the tooth. Dental implants require surgical placement and several months of healing time, but in the end, you have a permanent replacement tooth that adds oral health and cosmetic value to your smile for years to come.

A "root canal," or endodontic therapy, is a procedure available to save a tooth that is infected and would otherwise require extraction. There are many reasons that teeth can become infected, including: cavities, previous large fillings, crowns, cracks, and trauma. Read More About Root Canals
When you lose your teeth, your whole life is affected. Even the things that you once did with little thought, such as eating and speaking, become incredibly difficult. You find that it becomes harder, if not impossible, to eat your favorite foods. Your speech suffers, and others have a much harder time understanding you. Tooth loss also affects the quality of your smile and your confidence. The more teeth you lose, the worse these effects become. No matter how you lose your teeth, whether, through facial trauma, gum disease, severe decay, or another issue, the effects are all the same. If you have lost all of your teeth, Noreen Goldwire, DDS Family & Cosmetic Dentistry can help with complete dentures. Read More About Complete Dentures
