Heritage Comfort Dental is committed to offering a full range of dentistry services. Whether you’ve had repairs or need a complete replacement, we recommend continual check-ups to assess your gums and bone density to assess the surrounding areas associated with your implant.

Bridges  Flint, MI


If you are missing teeth, you have several treatment options available to restore your oral health and smile. One option we offer at Heritage Comfort Dental is the fixed dental bridge. This non-removable restoration is used to replace one missing tooth or several missing teeth in a row. Your custom bridge will be created to look, feel, and function like your natural teeth for the most comfortable experience. Our Flint, Michigan dentists may also recommend a bridge to:

  • Restore function to your bite
  • Prevent facial sagging
  • Replace an unwanted partial denture
  • Prevent the natural teeth from shifting
  • Complete a dental implant
  • Enhance the beauty of your smile

Over the course of a couple weeks, our dentists can create, place, and adjust your fixed dental bridge. When complete, you will be able to eat, speak, and live life to its fullest once again! For aesthetic reasons, bridges are often made of porcelain or another tooth-colored material. If you are missing teeth and are interested in learning about your tooth replacement options, we invite you to call our office in Flint today. We look forward to answering your questions and improving your smile.

Cracked Tooth Repair  Flint, MI

Cracked Tooth Repair

Cracked teeth can cause a variety of symptoms including pain while chewing, temperature sensitivities, and the release of biting pressure. It’s common for pain to come and go, which can make diagnosing the cause difficult.

While you chew, cracked pieces of your tooth move, causing the pulp within the tooth may become irritated. When biting pressure is released, the crack can close quickly resulting in sharp pain. If left untreated, the pulp will eventually become damaged and the tooth will constantly hurt, even when you are not chewing.

It is possible that cracks can lead to infection of the pulp tissue and can spread to the bone and gums surrounding the problem tooth.

There are different types of cracks, and each should be evaluated to prevent tooth loss and infection.

Dental Implants  Flint, MI

Dental Implants

One of the most effective tooth replacement options available in modern dentistry is the dental implant. Implants are man-made titanium screws that our Flint, Michigan dentists place into the jawbone. Following a period of healing, a custom dental implant restoration is attached to the implant. Depending on your individual needs, your implant restoration could be a:

  • Partial denture
  • Bridge
  • Crown
  • Full denture

Because dental implants replace both the roots and crowns of missing teeth, they offer exceptional stability, security, and restoration. To receive a dental implant, you do need a sufficient quality and quantity of jawbone. If you would like to find out if you are an implant candidate, or if you have any questions about implant dentistry, we invite you to contact Heritage Comfort Dental in Flint, Michigan today. We look forward to taking care of your smile and oral health!

Inlay and Onlays  Flint, MI

Inlays and Onlays

Dental inlays and onlays are considered a conservative method of treating damaged teeth. They are used instead of placing a crown. Some dentists even use inlays and onlays to treat tooth decay. Instead of filling in the tooth, your dentist may use dental inlays and onlays.

Dental inlays and onlays are made in a dental lab and then fitted to your tooth. They are then bonded to your tooth.
