About Davis & Nix Family & Cosmetic Dentistry

SERVICES Our practice offers a full range of services to treat all of your general and cosmetic dental needs. Restorative dentistry Upon diagnosis of decay, you have several filling material options to restore your tooth. We place amalgam fillings (silver colored) most often in posterior/back teeth due to their ability to support larger biting forces. We also offer composite (tooth colored) fillings which are most often placed in front teeth but can also be placed in back teeth upon request. Another treatment option is ceramic or gold inlays and onlays. These are often good treatment options when the tooth has a large cavity but does not require a crown. These require two appointments and are cemented into the tooth. Fixed crowns and bridges If a tooth has broken, has a large restoration and then has recurrent decay, following a root canal on a back tooth or in other selected cases, or if there is a missing tooth surrounded by two teeth, the tooth/teeth requires a crown or bridge. Crowns and bridges can be made of all-ceramic, ceramic over a metal substructure or gold. This requires two appointments. During the first appointment the tooth/teeth are reduced a pre-determined amount based on the material the crown/bridge will be made of and an impression is made of your teeth. A temporary restoration is placed over the teeth that have been prepared and the impression is sent off to a dental laboratory. You return two weeks later and the permanent crown/bridge is cemented into place. It functions and looks like your natural tooth/teeth.
