Dental Implants, Bridges, & Other Restorative Services in Durham

Teeth are strong but they are not perfect. Over time it is common for adult teeth to get damaged. Whether due to injuries, dental decay, or simply age, our teeth can need some help. There are a variety of restorative dental services we provide. Whether you need crowns/bridges/implants or you need help adjusting/replacing any of them, please give us a call.

  • Dental Implants: A dental implant is the best replacement option for a lost tooth in terms of how it accurately replaces the missing tooth. A post is surgically implanted into your mouth and the false tooth is attached to the post. This dental implement has the longest lasting durability and and is a strong replacement option. 
  • Dental Bridges: Another option for a missing tooth or missing teeth is a dental bridge. Unlike an implant a bridge is connected via the surrounding the teeth. The false tooth is placed between existing teeth and connected using dental crowns.
  • Dental Crowns: Crowns are synthetic caps placed on top of teeth. There are a few reasons this is done. If a tooth breaks or cracks, a crown might be best for keeping the tooth together. Also if you get a root canal or a dental bridge, a dental crown might be necessary.
  • Dental Fillings: When decay spreads to teh dentin of a tooth it is necessary to remove the decay and fill it in. Otherwise the decay could continue to spread until the tooth is irreversibly damaged. If you have a cavity we can fill it, or if you have an issue with a filling we can replace it.

Real Clients, Real Stories

My 6 year old daughter has been attending Joy Dentistry for a year. She loves her hygienist Jen. She relates really well to her. She explains what she is doing to my daughter in language she will understand. Great place for children.
