Dental Crowns

A crown  is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations. Porcelain crowns are the most popular, as they resemble your natural teeth, are highly durable and will last many years if properly cared for. Made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth, porcelain crowns give you a natural, long-lasting and beautiful smile.

Root Canal

A root canal is a procedure that is done to save a badly damaged or infected tooth by removing the damaged part of the tooth and nerve and then filling it. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed from the “canal” inside of the root, which is then cleaned, filled and sealed. Dr. Praff has years of experience preforming root canals, so he knows how stressful a process it can be. Dr. Praff will make sure the process is quick and painless.
