CROWNS & BRIDGES
Crowns (or caps) and bridges are the most common way to repair a damaged tooth. If a tooth is too weak to support a filling, this might be the best option for you.
A bridge is used to close a gap where you are missing a tooth. It is permanently glued in place.

Extraction is the complete removal of a tooth. Usually needed due to gum disease or decay. With his years of experience, Dr. Lovely can quickly and painlessly remove a problematic tooth.
Some extractions may be referred to oral surgeons based on the diagnosis and anatomy.
A root canal can be the best way to save a tooth and keep you from experiencing lingering pain. Often recommended when there is infection, pain, or severe decay. A root canal can often be completed in a single appointment.
Some teeth may need to be referred to a root canal specialist (endodontist).
