Dental Crowns & Bridges
When a tooth is injured, weakened, or lost altogether, it can have profound effects on both a patient’s oral health and sense of self-confidence. At Legacy Dental Group, patients can enjoy high-quality, tooth-colored dental crowns and bridges as a worthwhile restorative solution. A crown is a permanent covering that’s designed to fit over your original tooth’s remaining structure, strengthening its function and improving its appearance. Alternatively, dental bridges are utilized to replace missing teeth along a single arch; they are anchored sturdily in place with the help of additional dental crowns that are placed over nearby healthy teeth.
Our doctors will be happy to treat your teeth and even replace traditional metal restorations with new, all-ceramic crowns and bridges that look seamlessly lifelike. Better yet, our in-office dental laboratory handles the entire creation process nearby, creating personalized designs and custom shading that’s perfect for your smile.
In today’s modern dental world, doctors are starting to shift away from traditional, noticeably dark-colored amalgam fillings, and Legacy Dental Group is no exception. Our team offers high-quality, composite resin fillings as a more natural alternative to cavity treatment that still provides valuable support and aesthetic beauty to teeth in need.
Tooth-colored fillings offer several advantages to our patients. In addition to appearance, the composite resin forms a direct, conservative bond with the treated tooth that actually strengthens the remaining natural structure while preserving more of it overall. Additionally, patients won’t have to worry about excessive sensitivity to temperature changes.
Full & Partial Dentures
Patients have been wearing dentures for hundreds of years now, and today, these customized prosthetics can still be a reliable, cost-effective solution for those struggling with significant tooth loss. At Legacy Dental Group, we’re proud to offer the latest advances in full and partial dentures, and our doctors are always sure to take quality time and ensure a stellar result. Like their name suggests, full dentures are designed to replace an entire arch of teeth, while partials recreate certain teeth along an arch while allowing remaining healthy teeth to stay in place. Both are removable for easy cleaning and storage. In addition to new denture creation, our practice can also reline your existing full or partial denture in as little as one day for maximized comfort and success.

Root Canal Therapy
We utilize the latest technology and instruments at Legacy Dental Group to effectively treat significantly damaged teeth that are in need of root canal therapy. Many patients feel nervous when those words are mentioned, but this procedure is highly safe and successful, rescuing countless teeth from the threat of extraction and helping many go on to thrive for the rest of the patient’s life. Our doctors will carefully access the inner chamber of the affected tooth, thoroughly removing diseased pulp and sealing the area to prevent further reoccurrences of infection. Our Canton practice can usually complete root canal therapy in one, convenient visit!
At Legacy Dental Group, our team of doctors will always strive to help you preserve your natural teeth so you can enjoy them for many years to come. However, there are situations where extraction becomes a necessity that is in the patient’s best interest. Common reasons for tooth extractions include the following:
- One or more third molars (“wisdom teeth”) are erupting improperly, which could lead to impaction, overcrowding, or higher risks of infection.
- A patient is experiencing advanced periodontal disease.
- A tooth is suffering from a traumatic injury or severe decay and cannot be saved.
- One or more teeth need to be removed to aid orthodontic correction.
Our Canton, TX team is proud to partner with the experienced specialists at Pinnacle Oral Surgery for this procedure, and patients can rest assured that they will be kept as comfortable as possible. Sedation dentistry is available upon request!
Our Canton office is proud to offer sedation dentistry to our patients. There are two options: nitrous oxide sedation and conscious sedation. Nitrous oxide, also known as “laughing gas,” can make the more nervous patient relaxed and comfortable during dental procedures. Nitrous is a safe and effective way to decrease anxiety and is quickly removed from the body at the end of your visit in just a few breaths. This mild sedation is a great way to enjoy your visit at Legacy Dental Group. If you feel you need a stronger sedation, our doctors can prescribe you a mild oral sedative to take prior to your visit to help facilitate a pleasant experience. Please let us know if you would like to discuss sedation during your appointment!
