Strong Teeth Are Not Indestructible
While teeth are strong, they can still chip, crack and break. It’s important to have our dental care team examine any damage and provide treatment to prevent further deterioration or future problems.

Composite “tooth-colored” restorations
Composite fillings, also known as tooth-colored or white fillings, are used to repair a damaged tooth due to cavities, breakage, or root exposure. Fabricated from composite resin and porcelain, the tooth-like material of these fillings is safe, predictable, and effectively restores a tooth’s natural appearance.
A dental crown or “cap” often replaces an entire tooth surface, unlike a dental veneer that only covers the front surface of a tooth. New porcelain crown technology closes gaps, straightens teeth, and eliminates dark lines covering damaged, decayed or unattractive teeth to restore your smile.
A bridge does just that, “bridging” the gap where one or more teeth previously were helping to replace missing teeth, maintain face shape or alleviate bite stress. A successful bridge is a direct result of its foundation, including other teeth, gums, or bone to which it’s attached, making it very important to keep your existing teeth, gums, and jaw healthy!
Partial and complete dentures
When natural teeth are no longer functional or there is extensive tooth loss occurs, partial or complete dentures are a replacement option. Partial dentures replace teeth along a single arch and can be held in place by clasps attached to your remaining healthy teeth. Complete dentures are a comfortable option to replace a set of teeth, staying in place by the natural suction from the surrounding gum and bone tissue. Implants are now commonly used to secure dentures, helping with function and bringing confidence back to your smile.
An implant crown is a synthetic tooth root surgically placed into your jawbone with the replacement tooth affixed. Dental implants can permanently rejuvenate your smile after losing a tooth from injury or disease, giving you the look, feel, and function of natural teeth.
Root canals & referrals
Endodontic treatment, more commonly known as root canal therapy, is necessary when the pulp of your tooth becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes, such as deep decay, repeated dental procedures on your tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth.
While we do perform routine tooth removals and root canals, what’s best for your overall health is at the forefront of everything we do. In some cases, that means referring you to a specialist to resolve your issue rather than performing the procedure in-house. If so, we will help you find and schedule an appointment with an appropriate specialist—one that we know and that you can trust.
Tooth removal & referrals
Tooth removals are common for teeth with severe cavities or infections. If we determine tooth extractions are the best solution for your care, Polished Dental Care partners with local oral surgeons.
