Restorative Dentistry:

  • Implants: Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth. An implant is a titanium piece placed by an oral surgeon into the jaw. Once the implant integrates with the jawbone, patient’s return to see Dr. Rahr to finish the case by placing a crown. Dental implants have become a very predictable and effective treatment in restoring function and esthetics due to tooth loose.

  • Laminate Veneers: Veneers are thin, yet durable porcelain shells that wrap around existing teeth. Veneers are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile. Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions.

  • Crowns: A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations. Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth colored crown) are the most popular, because they resemble your natural teeth.  They are highly durable and will last many years. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.

  • Composite Fillings: A composite (tooth colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. Because composite fillings are tooth colored, they can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth, and are more esthetically suited for use in front teeth or the more visible areas of the mouth.   

  • Porcelain Onlays: Sometimes, a cusp of a tooth can crack away from a large silver amalgam or composite filling. Porcelain onlays are perfect for restoring teeth with fractures and are more conservation than crowns. Instead of preparing the entire tooth in the case of a crown, only the portion of the tooth that needs repair is worked on and the healthy portion of the tooth is left alone. These restorations are extremely durable and tooth colored, making them one of the greatest advances in dentistry in recent years.
