Restorative Dentistry

 Dr. Barker can restore your smile with a variety of dental services at Family Tree Dentistry.

At Family Tree Dentistry we want to promptly repair and correct any dental issues that arise to restore your health and smile – functionally and aesthetically. Addressing dental problems swiftly prevents them from getting worse and costing you more money and time down the road.

White Fillings

White fillings are tooth-colored composites used to restore your tooth after decay is removed. The composite we use is a synthetic resin of the highest quality.  After removing the decay, the resin is bonded to the tooth, replacing the portion that was lost. The filling helps protect the remainder of the tooth and maintain its full function - and it’s virtually indistinguishable from your natural tooth.

Crowns and Bridges

Crowns & bridges are an artificial replacement of teeth that look virtually identical to your original teeth. Dental crowns, or "caps" provide us with the ability to restore the function and aesthetics of teeth that have been broken, have decay or are discolored. While crowns are typically placed to restore and strengthen remaining tooth structure, they can also be used to improve the overall appearance of a smile as well.

Implant Crowns and Bridges

If you are missing one or more teeth, have difficulty chewing, speaking or are looking to improve aesthetics, an implant is a great option! After the implant's titanium screw is placed in the bone, it will be restored with an implant crown or "cap". Implants are an incredible long-term solution to restore complete function to your mouth. They offer more support and durability than any other tooth replacement option. It's the closest thing you can get to a natural tooth.

If you a have a full or partial denture, we can also dramatically increase the stability of your denture by securing it with implants.

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays are often used as a conservative alternative to a full crown.  These restorations are used to retain as much tooth structure as possible, keeping the tooth strong and fully functional. Inlays typically replace large fillings in the middle of the tooth, while onlays are placed when cusps must be replaced. These types of restorations blend in with your real teeth, granting you an unblemished, natural-looking smile.
