At Winning Smile Dental Group, our goal is to ensure our patients maintain a beautiful smile and pristine oral health. While this can be accomplished with preventive dentistry like exams and professional cleanings, sometimes restorative treatment may be necessary. We provide restorative dentistry for patients who suffer from common oral health problems, such as tooth decay, gum disease, and structural issues. Restorative applications range from tooth fillings to full-arch dentures and are designed to look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth.
Dental crowns are used to cover teeth that are damaged, cracked, chipped, or otherwise unable to support the pressures of your bite. Dr. Polly Reese may also recommend a crown after a root canal, as the tooth can become brittle. A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that fits over your existing tooth. To accommodate a crown, your enamel must be completely reshaped, as the cap fully covers the portion of your tooth above the gumline. Once the tooth is reshaped, an impression is made to fabricate the crown. Most crown procedures require at least two appointments. At Winning Smile Dental Group, we offer CEREC crowns to qualifying patients. CEREC crowns can be made in office, during a single appointment. This can save you significant time and money!

A dental implant is a titanium post designed to replace missing teeth. The post is surgically placed into the jawbone where the tooth is missing, and provides a more permanent solution. Read More About Dental Implants
For patients who have lost all or most of their teeth, Winning Smile Dental Group offers several denture solutions. Dentures consist of prosthetic teeth set in an acrylic base. Dentures designed for the upper arch also cover the palate. Dentures designed for the lower arch are usually horseshoe shaped to accommodate the tongue. If you are missing all or most of your teeth, dentures can restore your ability to chew and bite properly, as well as your smile and facial appearance. Read More About Dentures
While your teeth are incredibly strong and stable, they can still suffer significant damage or decay that can lead to tooth loss. You might lose a tooth due to a facial injury, such as a fall or sports injury. Severe decay or damage can lead to the need for a tooth extraction. Losing even just one tooth can lead to several significant issues, all of which can impact your quality of life. At Winning Smile Dental Group, we can replace a missing tooth with a dental bridge.

We prescribe root canal procedures when a tooth has an infection at a deep level. Injuries and untreated cavities can lead to bacterial infections of the pulp inside the tooth. Unless we treat it, these infections can progress to a stage where we need to extract the tooth. Thanks to advances in dental science, root canal procedures are now quite comfortable and rarely require more than one or two appointments.

Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that is done to correct a variety of minor imperfections in your teeth. The material used for bonding is a composite resin material, made up of fine glass, plastic, and other materials. The composite resin is extremely flexible before it is hardened, and can be molded to fit some different needs. It is also tooth colored, which means that it blends in beautifully with the natural enamel, creating a seamless restoration. Read More About Dental Bonding
Emergencies can be scary. Dental emergencies are no different. When issues arise, it is easy to panic. The first instinct is often to head to the local emergency room. While scary, many dental emergencies do not require hospital care. Read More About Emergency Dentistry
