Restorative Dental Care
When the impact of tooth decay requires the need for a filling, our team at Willis Dental provides our patients with the option of selecting traditional amalgam - or metal - fillings or composite fillings. Composite fillings are made from a tooth-colored porcelain and blend seamlessly into the natural appearance of your smile. Both metal and composite fillings offer a lasting solution for the treatment of a cavity.
At Willis Dental, we strive to provide dental work that looks indiscernible from the natural state of your smile so that we can create a smile that looks and feels its best.
Dental crowns serve as tooth-shaped “caps” that restore the shape, resilience, and appearance of a tooth. We offer crowns made from high-grade porcelain, ceramic, or porcelain bonded to gold.
Fitting a crown requires two visits to our Salem dentist office. During your first appointment, Dr. Willis will eliminate any remaining decay from the structure of your tooth, before shaping the tooth as needed. Dr. Willis will then fit the tooth with a temporary crown.
During your next visit, Dr. Willis will remove the temporary crown and replace it with a permanent crown. Once adjusted, the permanent crown will be cemented into position, providing you with a great-looking and durable new tooth.

Dental implants make a great option for replacing missing teeth or providing support for dentures, bridges, and crowns.
Dental implants are fixtures of titanium that take the place of tooth roots, and are surgically placed into your jaw bone to act as an anchor for a crown or denture to fit over. Most people can’t distinguish between a crown and a natural tooth because a dental implant looks so natural.
There are many advantages to dental implants, including increased stability and functionality. Dental implants tend to look and feel better than traditional dentures or dental bridges and offer the same force for biting as natural teeth. Best of all, they will last a lifetime if properly maintained.
