One of Dr. Kitt’s favorite hobbies is riding and rebuilding motorcycles, so of course, this means he ends up doing a lot of maintenance. As soon as he notices a problem, he fixes it. This is also how he helps our patients dealing with cavities or broken/chipped teeth. Whether you have one or several teeth in need of some TLC, he’ll take the time to explain your options, and no matter what you choose, you’ll walk out of our dental office with a smile that looks and feels like nothing bad ever happened to it.

Traditionally, the method of repairing a small cavity involves replacing the damaged enamel with a silver or amalgam filling. This has always had a few drawbacks—the restoration is an unnatural color, and the material responds to temperature, which can make the tooth sensitive. That’s why we use a composite resin alternative instead. This substance can be shaded to perfectly match the enamel around it, and it can be placed in a way that allows Dr. Kitt to preserve as much of the healthy tooth as possible, leading to a much stronger result. And, it doesn’t cause temperature sensitivity as well.
If the visible portion of a tooth is extensively decayed or damaged, the best solution may be to place a dental crown over it. These restorations are designed to look and function just like natural teeth, and Dr. Kitt personally designs each one so they fit seamlessly into every individual’s smile. Made of strong and durable metal or natural-looking zirconia, our crowns protect the remaining tooth and allow someone to chew and smile with complete confidence.
