Fillings are used to restore areas of your tooth affected by decay. Dr. Dautremont uses composite (tooth-colored) materials to "fill in" the surface of the tooth after all decay has been removed.

Crowns 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.

Bridges 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 between 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.

Single and Multiple Tooth Implants
Dental implants are the closest dental restoration to your original teeth. They are natural-looking and provide the functionality of a normal tooth. Dental Implants require the same maintenance as a normal tooth: brushing, flossing, and regular check-ups. Dental implants can replace missing or severely damaged teeth and can be used to secure restorations like dentures and dental bridges. Patients with dental implants often have greater satisfaction and results than other types of dental restorations.

Dentures 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.
A partial denture is a removable appliance held in place by gripping the remaining healthy teeth, usually with metal clasps or wires.

When a tooth is compromised, we do everything we can to save it. However, there are some instances in which a damaged tooth cannot be saved, and therefore needs to be extracted. At the office of Joseph Dautremont, DDS, we use a minimally invasive technique known as an atraumatic extraction that will help to minimize the amount of bone and tissue damage caused in the extraction process.
