When a tooth is lost, a whole series of events can begin to occur. Chewing on the affected side becomes more difficult and over time the remaining teeth can actually tilt and erupt into the open space. Teeth like to touch so they will move in all directions.
Replace Missing Teeth!
Depending on the location of the missing tooth, we would most likely recommend either a dental implant, a bridge, or a partial denture.

Have you had a dental filling in the past but are being told that now you need a dental crown? You may find it hard to understand why a filling wasn't sufficient.
The answer is that a filling is designed to restore only a small portion of your tooth. A dental crown is needed to restore tooth structure if
- Your tooth has been damaged by decay
- You've had root canal treatment
- Your tooth is too broken or decayed for a filling
How Dental Crowns Work
A dental crown fits over your tooth like a cap and reaches to the gum line. Using a crown protects the integrity of your natural tooth root, while also allowing you to chew and eat with ease.
Dr. Sokolosky works with the top dental laboratories and uses only the finest materials when creating your new crown. Ceramic porcelain is durable, and it can be customized to blend with your smile and provide a natural look. Dr. Sokolosky uses porcelain crowns for teeth that are visible to provide you with a seamless appearance to your smile.
