If you have extensive tooth decay or cracked, broken, or missing teeth, please call Starr Family Dentistry for a consultation.

We would love to tell you more about our advanced dental procedures that can restore your smile back to what it once was.

Our doctors perform special techniques to improve your dental health while increasing your self-confidence with an enhanced smile. We educate each of our patients on how to properly care for their teeth after any procedure to ensure the effects are lasting.

Root Canals

A root canal is typically performed to prevent tooth loss when there is severe damage at the root of the tooth (the pulp). The procedure involves removing the damaged pulp, cleaning and sealing the root, and placing a crown over the tooth for reinforcement. Severe cavities and old fillings that need to be replaced can increase your risk for a root canal. Talk to your dentist if you are concerned about your risk.


Crowns (or caps) are used to replace a tooth or reinforce the strength of a tooth damaged by severe tooth decay or trauma to the mouth. A crown may be used with a dental implant if you are missing a tooth. Crowns can be made of different materials including porcelain (most common), gold, or platinum metal.


If you have an empty space where a tooth should be, due to a lost tooth or tooth extraction, you may benefit from a dental bridge. The bridge is made of a filler tooth situated between two crowns. It is a permanent solution for a missing tooth.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. A restorative dentist, like Dr. Christopher Starr, has experience with modern-day dental implants. Most dental implants require a series of dentist visits to create custom-fit implants that will feel and function just like the teeth you were born with.

If you have healthy gums and bone structure in your mouth, you may be a candidate for dental implant surgery. If maintained properly, dental implants can last a lifetime.


If you have several missing teeth or extensive tooth decay or gum disease, you may be a candidate for full or partial dentures. Unlike bridges and dental implants, dentures are not permanently fixed to your jaw. They are removable. However, dentures are custom molded to fit your mouth and will require a series of adjustments to get the best fit.
