To ensure overall oral health, missing or damaged teeth need to be replaced or restored by a licensed dentist. At Greashaber Dentistry, you will be provided with a personalized treatment plan that is right for you to get your smile back to its best. Read below about some of the restorative services we offer.
Fillings are used to restore areas of your tooth affected by decay. At Greashaber Dentistry we use composite (tooth-colored) materials to "fill in" the surface of the tooth after all decay has been removed.

A crown is a covering that will wrap and protect the entire surface of a tooth, allowing it to look and function just like the original tooth.

A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is one of the traditional dental methods for replacing missing teeth.

Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and Onlays are used to restore portions of the tooth, or to strengthen a tooth. They are alternatives to using fillings or a crown to restore the integrity of the tooth.

Implant Crowns and Bridges
An implant crown is an ideal way to replace one or multiple missing teeth. First, a titanium root is placed by an Oral Surgeon or a Periodontist. Then, 3–4 months later, Dr. Greashaber will place a crown on top of that titanium root that is custom fit to each patient's space. Implant Bridges involve placing at least two titanium roots and connecting them to restore large spaces where multiple teeth are missing. Dental Implants are a great cosmetic and long-term solution to tooth loss.

Root Canal Therapy
A "root canal," or endodontic therapy, is a procedure available to save a tooth that is infected and would otherwise require extraction. There are many reasons that teeth can become infected, including: cavities, previous large fillings, crowns, cracks, trauma, and extreme wear.

A tooth extraction is the procedure done to remove a tooth that is damaged beyond repair from its socket in the jawbone. Extractions are also done to remove wisdom teeth that may be impacted or create future problems.
