Dental Sealants

Dentist Talking To Kid Patient

At Beyer Dental, we focus on preventive dental care with the goal of helping you to avoid cavities in the future. Dental sealants are often recommended for children, working to fill in pits and fissures of permanent teeth where food particles can be trapped.

Teeth are first cleaned thoroughly then the dental seal is placed as a protective cover over the chewing surfaces. While teeth sealants offer an extra layer of protection and prevention, they do not replace regular dental hygiene habits, such as brushing and flossing, which should be an essential part of your daily regimen.

Dental Fillings

Early detection of tooth decay is the main focus during your regular dental exam. When the doctor identifies a cavity, the affected structure first needs to be removed to prevent the decay from spreading to other areas of the tooth and replace with a cavity filling. The tooth filling, made of contemporary composite materials, will restore function, anatomy, and esthetics of the tooth. Occasionally, a lost filling may also need to be replaced.


Inlays and Onlays

When a large portion of the tooth needs to be restored, dental inlays and onlays can be an option. These are often called “partial crowns” and offer the same benefits as a full crown.

Inlays and onlays are durable esthetic restorations which require several appointments. They are a more conservative treatment than a typical crown, but are often recommended when a simple filling is not sufficient to restore complete tooth function.

Dental Crowns

When a tooth has been compromised due to severe damage or decay, a dental crown may be necessary to restore the structure and function of the tooth. The latest advances in technology are used to create a custom-fit dental crown, or “cap.” The cap is fitted to the shape and size of your tooth, and matched to the specific color of your surrounding teeth to blend in with your smile.

Sometimes, dental cavities are too big for a standard filling and a tooth crown is needed. The crown is placed over the tooth structure to strengthen it and restore the appearance of the natural tooth. Crowns offer both functional and cosmetic benefits.

Dentures (Partial and Full)

Missing teeth can be replaced with partial dentures or complete dentures.

Partial dentures are used when some of a patient’s natural teeth remain, while conventional complete dentures are designed to restore all missing teeth.

These dental prosthetics are important in restoring function as well as esthetics of your smile. We offer conventional dentures as well as denture implants.

Dental Bridges

One or more missing teeth can be restored with a dental bridge.

A tooth bridge is a false tooth (called a pontic) that is held in place by the crowns on the existing teeth (abutment) on either side of the gap. A fixed dental bridge can also be placed with dental implants.

Dental Implants

Dentist And Patient Interacting With Each Other

Dental implants are designed to replace one or more missing teeth.

The tooth implant is first placed into the jawbone to mimic the function of the tooth root. The implant needs time to integrate as the bone strengthens around it.

After a few months of healing, a permanent tooth restoration is placed on top of the implant post, such as a bridge, crown, or dentures.

Teeth implants provide unquestionable benefits in comparison to other restorative options:

  • The adjacent teeth are preserved and protected
  • Designed to mimic the structure of natural teeth
  • More esthetically appealing than other restorations
  • Allow for more attainable oral hygiene
