When a tooth is damaged, repairs to the biting surface and surrounding dentin require us to duplicate your original tooth with an artificial “cap” or crown. For years, a variety of metals were used to form a new tooth surface. Today, we can create a new crown that looks very nearly as good as your original tooth…and wears even better!

We also create dental bridges for people who have one or more missing permanent teeth. Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap, these two or more anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth, and a false tooth or numermous teeth are placed in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or can also be supported by dental implants.

So impressed with my dental work I had to share, I had a few quotes from some other offices on Veneers. I chose this office due to the staff and confidence of the Doctor. As you can imagine getting front teeth worked on can be very scary. I am very very happy with my work and will be a lifetime patient.
We are new in town and saw good reviews for Ridgeway, so we decided to set up appointments. I had a great check up! The office was very clean and nice. The staff were kind, thoughtful, and knowledgeable! I'm actually not nervous to go to the dentist next time since it's at Ridgeway.
A beautiful place and an awesome atmosphere! Sarah, my hygienist is great. She’s super friendly and always does a great job! I know whenever I’m scheduled for any type of appointment that I’m in great hands! Highly recommend them for your dental care.
Just had my teeth cleaned here. Just a regular checkup. Holy wow the building is nice! Very friendly staff that greeted me when I walked in. Waiting room was very nice. Appointment was quick and easy. Highly recommend.
The new office is gorgeous, the technology and equipment is top of the line. My hygienist, Ally, was incredible! So informative and professional, she is great at what she does. I will recommend this office to all of my friends and family.
Great experience all around! Friendly front desk. Staff was all very nice and helped take the pressure out of a stressful situation. The doctor was great! Very personable and helped me understand what needed to be done.
