As oral bacteria builds up, it can eventually create cavities and ultimately compromise the structure of a tooth. A dental filling is used to restore the strength of a tooth after the removal of decay. Doctors in the past had to use fillings made of metal amalgam. Although effective, metal fillings are often highly noticeable. At Lakeview Dental, we proudly use an advanced laser to remove decay and feature fillings made of a tooth-colored composite. Not only do composite fillings blend discreetly with teeth, they also form a more secure bond.
Crowns are versatile tooth-shaped restorations that can be used to address a range of concerns. If you have a tooth that is damaged or badly decayed, our dentists can use a crown to restore appearance and function. We work with an advanced dental laboratory to provide our patients with custom crowns made of a variety of materials, including traditional metal, zirconia, porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM), and IPS e.max®.
If you are missing one tooth or multiple consecutive teeth, a dental bridge offers a trusted way to fill in the gap and repair your smile. Dental bridges are custom restorations made of several artificial teeth that have been fused together. Traditional bridges are held in place by dental crowns. Those seeking a bridge with the greatest level of stability can secure their restoration with dental implants. In order to meet the needs of our patients, we offer zirconia and PFM bridges.
Dental implants offer the best way to help replace missing teeth. Implants are small metal posts that are surgically placed into the jaw. Over time, the posts become fused directly with the surrounding jawbone to function like artificial tooth roots. This enables dental implants to provide crowns, bridges, and dentures with an unparalleled level of stability. Our doctors can perform implants placement, restoration, and even preparatory bone grafting, making Lakeview Dental the single destination for all of your dental implants needs.
If you suffer from severe or widespread dental damage, a single restorative procedure may not be able to adequately address all of your concerns. Fortunately, Dr. Hirschfield or Dr. Berry can perform full mouth reconstruction by combining multiple procedures into a comprehensive treatment plan. Your doctor will work closely with you to plan your full mouth reconstruction, taking both your needs and budget into consideration. Dr. Hirschfield trained at the Dawson Academy and the world-renowned Misch International Implant Institute™ as part of his advanced restorative education, so he understands how to best address complex cases.
