Dental Crowns & Bridges
Not all teeth can be repaired with fillings. For more extensive damage, we may need to place a crown, which is a tooth-shaped cap that covers the entire dental structure. Crowns protect the teeth from further harm while allowing them to continue to function normally. Furthermore, they can also be used to support bridges to replace multiple teeth in a row. Our crowns and bridges are made out of aesthetically-pleasing materials, so once your smile is repaired, you’ll feel confident about showing it off!
Unlike metal fillings, tooth-colored fillings offer patients increased aesthetic quality, more conservative treatment, and more overall comfort.

Do you need to replace multiple teeth at once? Removable dentures are often the perfect restoration for the job! Each denture has a gum-colored base along with dazzling prosthetic teeth, helping your new smile look as natural as possible. You can either get a full denture that replaces all of your teeth, or you can fill in a certain number of gaps with partial dentures. Don’t forget to take your dentures out at night to give the rest of your mouth a break.
Root Canal Tre
When your tooth is cracked or is suffering from severe decay, bacteria may get past the protective enamel layer and start attacking the dental pulp. Infected pulp can be extremely painful and may eventually lead to even more dangerous health problems. To stop the infection from spreading any further, we will need to remove the dental pulp and give the inside of the tooth a thorough cleaning. Not only does this put a stop to your pain, but it can also save your tooth from needing an extraction.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
In many cases, wisdom teeth may emerge into the mouth improperly or not at all, leading to increased chances of pain and infection. By removing them, our Columbia team can better protect the health of your smile.
