The dentist will complete a thorough review of your medical history and an exam of your affected tooth. We will complete digital radiographs and testing of your tooth to evaluate for signs of nerve vitality and signs of infection. A tooth diagnosis will be given based on the findings of your exam and our team will discuss recommended treatment with you

After numbing your gums and placing anesthetic to “put your tooth to sleep” your dentist will isolate your tooth to help make the procedure more comfortable. Your dentist will proceed to access and clean the nerve inside of the tooth. Digital radiographs will periodically be taken during the procedure to ensure accurate measurements of your tooth. Once your tooth is completely clean on the inside, we fill the inside of the tooth with a biocompatible material to seal the nerve chamber from outside bacteria. A filling is then placed over the top of the access area for the root canal
With porcelain veneers you can change gaps, chips or permanently stained teeth without any invasive treatment.
