Bring Back Your Smile with Restorative Dentistry
It’s amazing how big of an effect just one decayed or broken tooth can have on your entire life. It can make you hesitant to smile, and it can even keep you from going out in the first place. Plus, damaged teeth tend to be a source of pain as well, and no one should have to live with constant discomfort, even if it’s just a dull ache. If damaged teeth are making your life more difficult every day, Dr. Flex and Dr. Hodge can rebuild your smile and take away your pain using restorative dentistry. No matter what condition your teeth may be in now, we’ll be able to fix them and make your smile look better than ever.
Traditional Crown & Bridge
Crowns and bridges are two of the most trusted and reliable treatments in all of dentistry. When it comes to repairing damaged teeth and replacing missing teeth, you can always rely on these restorations. We’ve literally helped thousands of smiles with these treatments, and if your teeth need a little bit of extra help, they can do the exact same for you. If you’d like to learn more about how they work and how you can get them, please click on the link below.
Fillings are a simple and effective way to fix small cavities and slightly damaged teeth, but in the past, they always left a large, noticeable gray mark wherever they were used. At our practice, we only use tooth-colored fillings because you shouldn’t have to sacrifice your appearance while getting your teeth repaired. They are made of a composite resin material that can be specially shaded to match the rest of your teeth, which will help them seamlessly blend into your smile.
CEREC One-Visit Restorations
Traditionally, it required at least two visits and a messy impression to get a dental crown. This simply doesn’t work for most modern people’s schedules, which is why we’re proud to offer CEREC one-visit restorations. In just a few hours, we can design, mill, and place a completely customized all-porcelain crown that will make your tooth look like it was never damaged. Want to know how we do it?

Dentures & Partial Dentures
If you’re missing a few teeth or even an entire row, one of the quickest and most effective ways to replace them is with a set of dentures. While they are still made of a gum-colored base attached to prosthetic teeth, modern day dentures are much smaller, sleeker, and natural-looking than anything your grandparents might have had. When you choose to get dentures with us, we will work meticulously to make sure that you get the fit and look that is perfect for you.
Before you scroll past this, we just want to say that, thanks to modern dental techniques, a root canal is NOT a painful procedure. In fact, it’s actually one of the best tools we have to relieve severe dental pain and save teeth that would otherwise need to be extracted. We typically use them to treat teeth that have damage or an infection deep in their innermost chamber. All in all, despite its dubious reputation, a root canal is often the answer for someone’s dental pain, not the cause of it!
While we will always try to save your natural teeth, sometimes the best course of treatment may involve removing one. This may be the case if:
- A tooth is too damaged to be replaced
- Advanced gum disease has deteriorated the bone supporting a tooth
- To make room for a set of dentures
- To make room for orthodontic treatment
- To replace a weakened tooth with a dental implant
- To remove an impacted (stuck) or infected wisdom tooth
Whatever the case may be, we will make sure you are thoroughly numbed before your extraction so that you will feel no discomfort at any time.
While a single damaged tooth might seem like a minor problem, it can easily develop into a much larger issue that impacts your entire mouth, and eventually your overall health. The best thing to do is to always have teeth repaired as soon as possible. That way, not only will your smile look and feel fantastic, but you’ll also be protecting your oral health.
