Minimally Invasive Dentistry
Preserving Your Natural Tooth Structure
There is nothing better for your smile than healthy, natural tooth structure. Keeping as much natural tooth structure intact as possible allows teeth to stay stronger and last longer. Nothing can replace what Mother Nature gave you. That’s why Dr. Kerbs is dedicated to providing conservative dentistry.
Conservative dentistry involves careful treatment planning to ensure that we can preserve as much of your natural, healthy tooth structure as possible. For example, if we can restore your tooth to health by placing a
tooth-colored filling or a partial dental crown, allowing us to remove less tooth structure than a full-coverage crown – then that is what we will do.
Dr. Kerbs uses his advanced training to create state-of-the-art porcelain restorations, rather than the traditional porcelain-fused-to-metal type. In the event that a full-coverage dental crown is required, we will place one... but only if it is absolutely necessary, and even then it will be prepared in the most conservative manner possible.
Dr. Kerbs believes that conservative dentistry is what will give his patients the healthiest, longest-lasting smiles possible. He bases all of our treatments on what is best for maintaining as much of your healthy tooth structure as possible. Because, unlike sharks, humans only get one set of teeth to last a lifetime!
