Composite Fillings

Composite Fillings 

A filling may be needed if a tooth has decay or damage caused by cavities, trauma, or wear and tear. Composites are a mixture of glass or quartz filler that provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small-to mid-size restorations. Composites are “bonded” to the tooth. These fillings are a more conservative repair to your tooth; meaning less tooth structure is removed when the tooth is prepared. This may result in a smaller filling than that of a metal (amalgam) filling and less cracked teeth. Palmer Dental Center is an amalgam free office.


Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front side of teeth. They are an option for correcting stained, chipped, decayed or crooked teeth.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. They are an excellent long-term option for restoring your smile. Dental implants are made up of titanium which, is surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw, where they function as a sturdy anchor for replacement teeth.

There are a series of steps that are required for an implant. First, the implant is surgically placed into the bone. Next, the bone around the implant heals in a process called osseointegration. What makes an implant so strong is that the bone actually grows around it and holds it in place. Osseointegration takes time 3-6 months, typically. After it has been integrated the implant can be restored with a crown, bridge, or denture.
