Implants provide an alternative to traditional crowns, bridgework and dentures. Implants result in greater comfort and confidence as they feel and look like natural teeth. A dental implant is a titanium "anchor" that is inserted into your bone in place of a missing tooth. After the bone heals around the implant, a replacement tooth is secured to the top of the implant. The result is a restoration that functions similarly to the rest of your teeth. Our office uses Zimmer Dental implant systems and refers to a specialist for the initial placement of the implant.

Making your smile last a lifetime...
Dr. Ioset and his staff offer a wide variety of restorative procedures depending on your needs. From a small filling procedure to a dental implant, we are here to make sure your smile is healthy and lasts for years to come. Some of the restorative procedures we offer include:
Caries Removal ("Fillings")
- Decay is best caught and removed in its early stages before it impacts the overall health of a tooth. Dr. Ioset uses only the highest quality materials in restorative procedures. Composite is used in almost every procedure. Composite is a very strong, durable material that wears similar to enamel; your tooth will look as though it never had a filling as the composite matches the shade of your tooth. As a rule, our office rarely uses silver amalgam.
Bonded Restorations and Esthetic Dentistry
- Have you broken or chipped a tooth? Is there something about your smile that bothers you? Bonded restorations and esthetic procedures allow us to repair your teeth and perfect your smile. Restorations can reshape a tooth or fill in gaps between teeth. These procedures can restore the functionality of your teeth and can give you a smile that you want to share with the world.
Crown and Bridgework
- Crowns restore strength to teeth that have been severely compromised by decay and large restorations. Bridges replace teeth that have been lost.
- Veneers are thin porcelain facings that are used to resurface and recontour anterior teeth. Veneers provide a way to improve the esthetics of your smile.
