Restorative Dentistry Procedures
If oral disease, decay, or injury has compromised your healthy teeth, we offer a wide variety of restorative dentistry procedures. We can correct any damage, small to large, with restorations that look and feel completely real.
A dental crown can fix anything from broken teeth to large cavities. Dr. Cutbirth’s skilled team will ensure that your dental crown is indistinguishable from natural tooth enamel. A dental crown can give your tooth the shape, size, and color that you desire.
Dental crowns are made of natural-looking materials like ceramic or porcelain that can be customized to perfectly match your existing teeth, making them a great choice to protect your teeth. Gone are the days of unsightly metal crowns—with advancements in dental technology, you can prevent further decay while showing off a beautiful smile.

If you have one or more missing teeth, a dental bridge may be a great way to restore your smile. Bridges are composed of a replacement tooth that is supported on either side by a dental crown. Our bridges will make you feel like you have your smile back again!
While they may not seem like a big deal, missing teeth can have a significant impact on your overall dental health. Missing teeth can allow your remaining teeth to shift, causing problems in your bite and jaw alignment.
This can create areas that are hard to clean, opening you up to pockets of decay or infection in your teeth and gums. Additionally, they can make eating difficult, affecting your nutrition. Dental bridges are a great way to protect yourself from these issues.
Millions of Americans experience tooth loss, and now they have a highly advanced option for replacement. Dental implants are a highly recommended solution because they offer unbeatable comfort to patients who have missing teeth. Dental implants provide benefits like jawbone protection and facial preservation that other replacement methods don’t offer.
Dental implants act just like your regular teeth because they use a titanium post anchored in your jawbone to simulate a natural tooth root. This prevents bone loss from missing teeth and gives you a super strong, natural-looking replacement tooth.
We are a mercury-free practice for your safety. Whether you need a new filling to protect your teeth or you need to replace an old silver filling, we can provide you with flawless mercury-free restorations. We will design your filling in a shade that is identical to your teeth.
In earlier times, dentists would use metal fillings to cheaply fill in cavities. However, some of these fillings contain mercury. Additionally, they are easily noticeable and interfere with the aesthetics of your smile.
We can replace your metal fillings with safer and better-looking alternatives, using IV Vitamin C Chelation and a protective rubber dam. We use customizable color matching to provide you with a beautiful, natural finish.
Root Canal Therapy
Sometimes decay goes beyond a cavity, infecting the inside of the tooth. The material inside your tooth is called the pulp, and when your pulp gets infected, it can cause serious problems. Without proper treatment, it can progress, causing a dental abscess or deeper infection. Luckily, root canals are an easy way to fix infected pulp.
Dr. Cutbirth performs root canal therapy to restore a tooth that has suffered from internal damage. There’s no need to worry because, with modern technology and dental sedation, you can have a truly painless root canal experience.
