Restorative Dentistry

Dental Implants

Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth. Dental implants have become the standard of care for the replacement of teeth because dental implants allow a missing tooth (or teeth) to be restored to optimum function and appearance without invading or damaging any other teeth or tissues. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth - covering the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and/or to improve its appearance. A Crown restoration is needed when teeth are damaged in such a manner that a filling material may not be enough to restore the health and function of a tooth. 

Dental Bridge

A bridge is an artificial replacement to one or more missing teeth; literally bridging the gap created. An artificial tooth may be bonded to the adjacent teeth or crown holding it permanently in place. Bridges allow the replacement of lost teeth without the use of a dental implant or denture.


Dentures are a set of artificial teeth used when a patient has lost real teeth. Dentures replace both the teeth and gums. Dentures give better chewing abilities and greater aesthetic appeal by providing the illusion of natural teeth. Dr. Charles Silk is an expert at creating a beautiful smile and can restore a patients youthful look using dentures, crowns or veneers.

Onlays/Inlays (Fillings)

Whether you have old, cracked silver amalgam fillings or a tooth damaged by decay, Dr. Silk can effectively restore it with a strong and natural porcelain inlay or onlay and can recreate the appearance of your healthy teeth and natural tooth color. The end result is nearly seamless invisible fillings.
