Tooth fillings are necessary for restoring a tooth structure that has been lost. We are a mercury-free dental practice that uses porcelain inlays and tooth-colored onlays to create tooth fillings. Our fillings are bonded to the natural tooth to restore strength and function. If you have a chipped or broken tooth, contact us today to learn more about our aesthetically pleasing and dependable tooth fillings. Tooth-colored restorations can be done in just two appointments!

A denture is an appliance that replaces missing teeth and surrounding gum tissue, providing support for the cheeks and lips. Dentures can be complete or partial, depending on how many teeth are missing. They’re custom-made to comfortably fit your mouth and can also be attached to dental implants to allow for a more secure fit. Contact us today to find out if dentures are right for you!

Crowns are used to provide support for misshapen, broken or decayed teeth. We have the tools and skills to repair your tooth with a dental crown and enhance your smile. We use porcelain or porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns to give you a complete smile and a functional bite. A dental crown is a long-lasting restoration option that offers support, looks natural and returns you to your normal chewing habits.

Dental bridges are devices used to close the gap caused by missing teeth by attaching their replacements to adjacent, natural teeth. Bridges can be fixed or removable and are a great way to bring back normal function to your mouth and improve your dental health and the appearance of your smile. Bridges help minimize the side effects of missing teeth, including an increased risk of gum disease.

Dental implants are small, titanium posts that serve as stable anchors for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. We offer both zirconium and traditional implants. They help to preserve facial structure and allow you to eat almost anything! Placing dental implants into your mouth typically requires two surgical procedures. To determine if dental implants are right for you, call us today to schedule a consultation.

Dr. Nesbit and her highly-trained staff will make every effort to repair a severely broken or decayed tooth, but if it is damaged beyond repair, an extraction may be necessary. Poor position in the mouth may also cause a tooth to be removed. During the extraction, you’ll feel pressure but no pain. We’ll make sure you feel comfortable and at ease throughout the procedure and educate you on how to care for your mouth following the extraction.

Nesbit Center of Dental Excellence is proud to offer that latest technology available for gum disease (periodontal disease) – laser therapy using Laser Softcare. Virtually painless, the high-energy light beam sterilizes the area it’s working on, thereby reducing the risk of bacterial infections. Dr. Nesbit can perform a variety of dental procedures using laser technology. If you have tender, red, swollen or bleeding gums, contact our office today. We’ll quickly treat your gums and return you to your normal routine!

A root canal is a dental procedure that replaces a severely infected pulp, saving your natural tooth and preventing the need for a dental implant or bridge. Infection of the pulp, or the soft tissue at the center of the tooth, can be caused by decay, trauma or cracks and chips. Symptoms include pain or swelling in the tooth and gums, and sensitivity to hot or cold food and drink. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, Dr. Nesbit will recommend a non-surgical root canal to treat the problem and remove the diseased pulp. The therapy usually involves anesthesia and can be completed in one visit. Contact us today to find out if a root canal is the best option for you.
