Restorative Care

Crowns

A dental crown is a covering over a tooth that has been compromised due to fracture, large and old fillings, severely decayed or root canal treated. Crowns serve restorative purposes by strengthening the underlying tooth structure and covering it with an esthetic result.

What to expect 

FIRST APPOINTMENT: Area to be treated will be anesthetized. Then, the tooth will conservatively prepared and polished to create space for the crown. A mold of the tooth will be taken and sent to the lab, where the technician will carefully fabricate a crown or bridge to fit over your prepared tooth. You will have temporary crown for two weeks while the restoration is being made in the lab. During this time, we recommend to avoid hard and sticky food on the side that was treated so the temporary crown does not get dislodged.

SECOND APPOINTMENT: The temporary crown will be removed, and the final crown will be tried in and will be checked to make
sure it is well adapted to your tooth and the shape and contours match your adjacent teeth. Then, we will cement in the crown.

Dental Implants

Dental implants at Refine Dental Care represent a modern solution for replacing missing teeth. These implants consist of titanium posts surgically anchored into the jawbone, acting as artificial tooth roots. Over time, they fuse with the bone, providing a stable foundation for custom-designed crowns. This innovative approach not only fills gaps in your smile but also helps preserve the jawbone’s structure and health, preventing the bone deterioration commonly seen with tooth loss. With implants, patients enjoy enhanced oral functionality and a natural-looking, long-lasting smile restoration.

Inlays & Onlays​

Inlays and onlays are tooth-colored restorations fabricated in a lab to replace large areas of missing tooth structure due to tooth fracture or decay. It used on the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars. This multi-step procedure ensures a custom fit that blends seamlessly with your natural teeth.

What to expect

FIRST VISIT: The process for both inlays and onlays involves removing the damaged area, taking an impression for the lab, and then fitting a temporary piece until the permanent restoration is ready.

SECOND APPOINTMENT: The temporary filling will be removed and replaced with a durable inlay or onlay that will be cemented onto your tooth.

Dental Bridge

A dental bridge is a fixed dental restoration that consists of multiple crowns to replace one or more missing teeth. It can be an alternative to dental implants and may be recommended for certain cases. 

What to expect 

The areas to be treated be numbed and the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth with be prepared for crowns. An impression of the area h will be taken and sent to the lab, where the technician will carefully fabricate a crown or bridge to fit over your prepared tooth. You will have temporary bridge for two weeks while the restoration is being made in the lab. During this time, we recommend to avoid hard and sticky food on the side that was treated so the temporary bridge does not get dislodged. 

SECOND APPOINTMENT: The temporary restoration will be removed, and the final bridge will be tried in and will be checked to make sure it is well adapted to your teeth and the shape and contours match your adjacent teeth. The bite will be confirmed to make sure there are no interreferences or high spots when chewing. Then, we will cement the bridge. To take care of the bridge, we recommend using a water flosser, superfloss or floss threader. 

Cosmetic Bondings

Cosmetic bonding offers an affordable and less invasive alternative to veneers, appealing to many patients. This procedure involves applying a custom-tinted resin to address aesthetic concerns such as gaps, cracks, discoloration, or irregular shapes, providing natural-looking results often achievable in a single office visit.

Tooth Colored Fillings

Composite resins, or tooth-colored fillings, provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small- to mid-size fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. They can be used on either front or back teeth. 
They are a good choice for people who prefer that their fillings look more natural.

What to expect 

The area to be treated is first anesthetized. Then, any cavity is cleaned out with a drill. This leaves a hole or void in the tooth, which is filled with a composite filling material that seamlessly blends in with your tooth.
