Sparkling teeth and healthy gums add up to a beautiful smile. If you lose part or all of a tooth, it can be detrimental to your self-confidence and the health of your remaining teeth. Whether the tooth is the result of an accident, a disease process or just normal wear and tear, the timely replacement will help prevent further deterioration of the surrounding teeth and gums. The treatment of the tooth loss may require the branch of dentistry known as prosthodontics.

Testimonials

After being in miserable pain for weeks and my general dentist being unable to help me I finally decided to reach out and find another doctor to help me. When I got to Dr. Shaw's office his staff was extremely accommodating to my schedule, they were very professional, and I felt at ease the moment I walked through the door. Dr. Shaw was very lighthearted and easy to talk to. Jennifer and Ashley were the best assistants I could have asked for. Not only could you tell they enjoyed their jobs but you could tell they wanted to make me as comfortable as possible. I would highly recommend this office to all of my family and friends because I know they would get the best care possible.
