Why Choose Dooley Dental for Restorative Dentistry?
Expertly Designed Crowns
- Mercury-Free Tooth-Colored Fillings
In the past, dentists relied on a type of filling known as an amalgam filling. Amalgams were made of a variety of metals, including silver and mercury, and because of this they had a dark gray color that would stand out against a patient’s teeth.
While some dentists still use amalgam fillings, most—including Dr. Dooley—have traded amalgam fillings for tooth-colored fillings. Why? Because tooth-colored fillings have several advantages over traditional amalgam fillings, the first of which is stated in the name itself. Amalgams have an unattractive color that makes patients feel self-conscious about smiling, but tooth-colored fillings are shaded to blend in with your smile. Once in place, no one will know that you’ve had any cavities treated.
A dental crown is used to entirely cover or "cap" a damaged tooth. Besides restoring and strengthening a damaged tooth, the crown can also be used to improve the tooth's appearance, shape or alignment in the row.
If you have intact, strong teeth on either side of the space, Dr. Dooley can fill the gap using crown and bridge therapy. A crown protectively caps a tooth and is attached to a dental bridge, which is a row of one or more replacement teeth. This restorative dentistry measure provides permanent and stable smile restoration.
Dentures & Partials
We regularly fit patients for full dentures and partials. People worry that these prosthetics won’t provide the level of stability that they desire, but our restorative dentistry team is skilled with accurately fitting dental prosthetics for any patients.
Dental Implant-Retained Dentures

The powerful bond between your implant and jaw, provides a permanent anchor for any type of dental restoration. There’s no limit to the foods you can enjoy, and no oral hygiene changes necessary.
We have a variety of tooth replacement methods to refresh any smile, but for patients who want a permanent smile restoration, dental implants create a stable and secure smile. They remake a tooth down to the root and look completely natural!
