Restore your smile and your confidence!
A dental crown covers a structurally damaged tooth to restore integrity. Deep cavities, chips or cracks may require a crown. Dr. Draiss offers porcelain crowns to repair and enhance esthetics of damaged teeth.
How we can help: You should expect two office visits for a crown procedure. At the first appointment, Dr. Draiss will prepare the damaged tooth, make an impression and place a temporary crown. Our dental lab will then fabricate a custom crown and at your follow-up visit, the temporary crown will be removed and the permanent crown cemented.
Bridges replace one tooth or a few teeth in a row. A bridge consists of one or more replacement teeth with crowns attached to the ends. The crowns fit onto natural, healthy teeth to secure the bridge in place. Bridges are cemented in the mouth and do not come out. Bridges restore a complete smile and all the related benefits of aesthetics and function. Bridges may also be retained by dental implants.

A small cavity, left untreated, can grow to destroy an entire tooth. Unlike our skin, teeth don’t heal naturally. Only professional dental care can fill your cavities and return your teeth to optimal oral health.
How we can help: Dr. Draiss will remove the decayed portion of the tooth and place a filling to restore the tooth. We offer tooth colored fillings at Chelsea Comprehensive Dental to restore cavities in teeth.

One of the fastest growing fields in dentistry is the use of dental implants to replace teeth. If you are missing one or more teeth, you may be a candidate for dental implants. Dental implants become firmly embedded in the jaw and function like the root of a tooth. Implants can replace one tooth or multiple teeth depending on the circumstance. Dental implants can also be used to secure partial dentures and dentures eliminating the need for messy denture adhesives.
How we can help: After a consult to review your dental health and medical records Dr. Draiss will determine if you are a candidate for dental implants.
