He will discuss these findings with you, and work with you to develop a smile restoration plan that meets your needs, budget, and personal preferences.

Inlays, Onlays, & Dental Crowns

Restoration For Damaged Teeth

Inlays and onlays are similar to fillings, but are made from porcelain. They can be used to restore larger, more serious decay and damage to the teeth.

Dental crowns are also a great option for damaged teeth. Crowns are hollow, tooth-shaped pieces of porcelain that are permanently bonded to your tooth. Acting as a cap, the crown covers the tooth and protects it from further damage, while also restoring its natural appearance and function.

Expert Restorative Treatments in Eau Claire

Dr. Shook is always here to help you get the restorative care you need in Eau Claire. Among many others, we provide the following restorative services at our office.

Permanent Teeth Replacement

implants & Dental Bridges

Dental bridges use two crowns that attach to healthy teeth, suspending one or more false teeth in the gap in your smile. They’re durable, long-lasting, and require little special care.

Known as one of the most secure and long-lasting tooth replacement options available, dental implants can restore missing teeth and seamlessly blend in with the rest of your smile.

Restore Infected
Teeth

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is used to restore infected teeth. In this procedure, Dr. Shook opens up the tooth, cleans out the inside, fills it, and caps it with a crown to protect the tooth from further damage.

Full And Partial

Dentures

We offer both full and partial dentures. Full dentures require the extraction of any remaining healthy teeth and restore your entire mouth. Partial dentures can restore just a few teeth, and clip onto your remaining healthy teeth to stay in place.
