You don't have to live with damage, discoloration or gaps when it comes to your teeth. There is a procedure that is right for you and your unique situation. From bridges, to dentures, to implants, we can help or point you in the right direction.
FillingsFillings are used to restore areas of your tooth affected by decay. Dr. DeWire uses both amalgam (silver) and composite (tooth-colored) materials to "fill in" the surface of the tooth after all decay has been removed. Learn More About Fillings
DenturesDentures are a replacement option for missing teeth. A complete denture is a removable prosthesis of white plastic teeth in a pink gum-colored plastic base; the denture rests on the remaining gum ridge once all of the teeth in the arch have been removed. Learn More About Dentures
Dental BridgeBridges are used to replace a missing tooth in both a cosmetic and functional fashion. A bridge structure is one or more artificial teeth anchored in place by natural teeth, crowns or implants, on each side of the bridge. Using a bridge to fill the gap from missing teeth helps restore proper bite. It also prevents teeth from shifting to fill the gap (which may lead to additional bite and jaw joint issues). Bridges can be constructed from gold, porcelain and metal, or ceramic. Ceramic bridge color is made to match your natural tooth color. Material choice will depend on structural requirements, wear and aesthetics. Learn Read More About Dental Bridges
Dental CrownsCrowns are used to restore teeth severely damaged by fracture or decay. After the tooth surface is cleaned and prepared, the crown is placed to cover the remainder of the tooth. Learn More About Dental Crowns
Root Canal TherapyA "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. Learn More About Root Canal Treatment
TMJIf you are experiencing jaw pain or discomfort, the office of Dr. DeWire has experience treating issues that affect the alignment of your jaw and temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Learn More About TMJ Treatment and Options
Tooth ExtractionsA tooth extraction is the procedure done to remove a tooth that is damaged beyond repair from its socket in the jawbone. Extractions are also done to remove wisdom teeth that may be impacted or create future problems. Many extractions can be performed in our office; however, more complicated procedures may be referred to one of our trusted oral surgeons. Learn Why Teeth Are Extracted
