You can rely on Dr. Adams’ experience and commitment to dentistry that fuses form, function, and aesthetics.

Simple restorations can include a variety of choices depending on a number of teeth involved and their location. Options can include bonded porcelain crowns, which are very similar to porcelain veneers but are used to encompass the entire tooth. Porcelain Onlays and inlays are primarily used to restore the back (posterior) teeth. An onlay covers an entire “cusp” or point of a tooth and an inlay is used between the cusps. These bonded adhesive porcelain restorations not only preserve tooth structure but strengthen the teeth close to their natural composition.

Full mouth reconstruction is a more complex procedure, usually when significant changes need to made to the way your teeth come together (otherwise known as your “occlusion”). Full mouth reconstruction may involve multiple crowns/veneers and is performed utilizing the principles of neuromuscular dentistry.
