If you have a cracked, broken, decayed, or worn tooth, our Madison Avenue team can help. Using a custom-made dental crown, we will help you restore your tooth’s structure, strength, and functionality. Your crown will be custom-made according to your needs and precisely shaded to blend in with your natural smile. A full crown procedure typically takes just a couple of short appointments, with results that will last for years to come.
A bridge (also known as a fixed bridge) is a special prosthesis designed to help patients replace a missing tooth or teeth. Most bridges consist of three basic parts: the false tooth and two abutment crowns. These crowns are placed over adjacent teeth, providing your false tooth with stability and strength.
At Drs. Boyd, we’ve left traditional amalgam fillings safely in the past when it comes to correcting cavities. Instead, composite resin is our material of choice, which comes in a variety of lifelike shades that can be closely matched to your natural enamel. Tooth-colored fillings also offer several other valuable benefits, including reduced sensitivity to changes in temperature, more preserved tooth structure, and small, conservative fillings that are hard to notice in a natural smile.
A denture can help a patient replace everything from a few missing teeth to a full upper or lower arch. A partial denture is composed of multiple teeth spread across a gum-colored base. Most partials are secured by clips or brackets, unlike a bridge, which is normally cemented in place. A full denture, meanwhile, completely replaces a full row of teeth and can have a closed or open palate. In both cases, an implant-supported option is available for greater stability and strength.
