Dr. Willette believes one of the most important aspects of her work is to practice with the intention to preserve the natural tooth structure whenever possible. There is no material that can be created that is better than healthy natural tooth. Teeth that require restorations due to decay, fracture or displeasing appearance should always be restored in the most conservative manner to maintain the natural tooth structure, correct the disease and/or displeasing appearance. When Dr. Willette discusses treatment plans with you she is happy to review your options in detail. If time doesn’t permit to review a treatment plan at the initial appointment we schedule a return for a consult appointment as part of the new patient exam. It is very important to Dr. Willette that you know and understand your options prior to therapy. Dr. Willette stays current on dental materials and she offers the best material to fit each patient’s needs and desires.
The following are the procedures done at her office:
• Implant Crowns
• Composite Bonding
• Composite Artistry
There are times that composite restorations are more appropriate and conservative than crowns. However they should mimic natural teeth as closely as possible. Many times this requires the use of many shades and a specific technique.
