Restorative Services

At MK Dentistry, we strive to restore your smile and health.  We want to make sure your teeth are not just beautiful, but also functional.  Dental heath is important for one's overall health.  Cleanings should be scheduled every 3 to 6 months.  We also take care of emergency patients; when calling the office during off-hours, press "9" to speak to someone directly.

  • Fillings

    White composite resin fillings are used to fill cavities, acid erosion and fractures. We use high-quality materials that are meant to last for many years while protecting and reinforcing the tooth.

  • Crowns

    Crowns are a cosmetic and functional restoration used to strengthen a tooth or improve its shape when there is insufficient tooth structure remaining to hold a filling. Crowns are cemented onto an existing tooth and fully cover the portion of the tooth above the gum line. The crown is created in a lab from your unique tooth impression, and is sculpted so that your bite and jaw movements function normally when the crown is placed.

  • Bridges

    A bridge can be a good option if one to two teeth in a row are missing. A bridge is usually made of three to four “units,” where the middle portion acts as a prosthetic or fake tooth, and the outside parts hold onto intact teeth. It is very important to learn how to clean around your bridge with special flossers.

  • Implants

    A dental implant is an excellent choice for replacing a missing tooth. The implant body acts as a post or as a tooth root replacement. Once this portion integrates into the bone, we can place a permanent crown on top of the implant, restoring proper function. Implants have a very high success rate, can last for many years and are also easy to brush and floss. In many ways, they act just as a natural tooth would.

  • Amalgam Removal

    Although amalgam fillings can last in the mouth for many years, they can also be problematic. Amalgam fillings are composed of approximately 50% elemental mercury by weight, as well as other metals such as silver, tin and copper. Over time, the metal expands and contracts and can act as a wedge to the natural tooth structure, leading to fractures of the enamel. Sometimes it is best to remove old amalgam fillings and replace them with white resin composite materials, and other times a crown is better suited to further reinforce the tooth.
