Restorative Dentistry


Woman looking at her smile in a mirrorAt Northstar Dental, our goal is to prevent dental problems before they occur. Unfortunately, this is not always possible due to poor oral hygiene, genetics, infrequent checkups, and other risk factors. This is why we also specialize in restorative dentistry. Our restorative services are designed to improve the function and aesthetics of your smile, as well as your overall oral health.

Dental Fillings


Dental fillings are the best way to restore minor to moderate instances of tooth decay. Most fillings these days consist of a material known as composite resin. Composite resin is an aesthetically-pleasing material that we color-match to the existing shade of your enamel. For this reason, a composite filling is virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your tooth.
Learn more about tooth colored dental fillings.

Dental Crowns


A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that improves the structure and cosmetics of a damaged or decayed tooth. During the procedure, your tooth must be completely reshaped to accommodate the shape of the crown. Once the tooth is reshaped, we will permanently bond the crown to the enamel using a special adhesive. Many crowns are fabricated these days with porcelain, due to its unmatched aesthetics.
Discover how a dental crown can be used on a damaged or decayed tooth.

CEREC Same Day Crowns


CEREC is an abbreviation of the term Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic. While other methods involve lab made crowns, the CEREC uses computer-aided manufacturing to create a perfect crown.

Dental Bridges


A dental bridge is a tooth replacement that typically consists of two dental crowns linked together by a pontic, or false tooth. A traditional bridge is supported by the two surrounding teeth, known as abutment teeth, that we reshape to receive the crowns. A bridge can also be supported by a series of dental implants if multiple adjacent teeth are missing. If you are missing a tooth, a bridge will prevent the remaining teeth from shifting out of their proper position.
Read more about how a dental bridge can help if you have a missing tooth.

Dental Implants


A dental implant is a small titanium post that we surgically embed into the jawbone. The implant serves as the root component of a prosthetic tooth. Once the implant is in place, it will fuse to the bone during the process of osseointegration. Osseointegration allows the implant to support a restoration against the strongest forces of your bite. For this reason, dental implants are widely considered to be the next best thing to your natural teeth.
Learn more about the benefits of dental implants.

Bone Grafts


For a dental implant to be successful, you must have a sufficient amount of bone in the jaw. If your bone is too thin or soft, it may cause the implant to fail. Patients with inadequate bone may need to undergo a bone graft.

Dentures: Complete & Partials


A denture is a removable appliance that is usually used to replace one or more missing teeth. A partial denture usually attaches to the surrounding teeth with metal clasps. A complete denture consists of a flesh-colored acrylic base that supports a complete arch of prosthetic teeth. We offer custom-fit dentures as a more comfortable, functional, and durable solution.
Discover how different types of removable dentures can replace missing teeth.

Inlays & Onlays


Inlays and onlays are ideal for areas of decay too large for a filling, but not large enough to require the placement of a dental crown. The restoration is considered an inlay if it is placed within the occlusal (bite) surface of a tooth. The restoration is considered an onlay if it extends beyond one or more of the occlusal cusps.

Tooth Extraction


There are two types of tooth extractions: simple and surgical. We perform a simple extraction on a tooth that has already erupted above the gumline. We perform a surgical extraction on a tooth that has become impacted, or has yet to erupt, such as wisdom teeth. Extraction may be necessary to prevent the spread of infection and other complications.
Learn more about tooth extractions and when they are necessary.

Root Canal


A root canal is a last-ditch effort to save a tooth from extraction. We may recommend a root canal if an infection has spread to the “pulpy” center of the tooth that contains nerve endings and other connective tissues. Once the infection has been removed, we fill the canals with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. A tooth that has received root canal treatment typically needs to be capped with a crown.
Discover how a root canal could save a tooth from being extracted.

Invisalign® Clear Aligners


Straighter teeth don't only make you more confident, they also help your overall health by making it easier to keep your teeth clean and your gums healthy. To restore the function of your teeth, we offer discrete clear aligners as an alternative to traditional orthodontic treatment.
Read more about the Invisalign® procedure.

Full Mouth Reconstruction


If you have multiple missing or problematic teeth, you may need multiple procedures. A complete overhaul is sometimes referred to as a full mouth reconstruction.
