Dental implants can restore the beauty and function of your smile all at once. Implant dentistry refers to tooth restorations placed into your jawline for a more permanent and stable treatment. Drs. Paul and Aaron Wulff are your number one choice for dental implants in Prescott.

We are pleased to offer comfortable, functional, custom-made dentures to help you regain a beautiful smile after the loss of teeth due to injury or disease. We offer two types:
Complete Dentures: These replace all of the teeth in the upper jaw or lower jaw. They can either be conventional (placed after gums have healed) or immediate (placed right after teeth are removed).
Partial Dentures: These are used to replace multiple missing teeth when some natural teeth remain. Partial dentures attach to your remaining teeth and prevent the natural teeth from shifting.
If you are suffering from empty gaps in your smile, then we may suggest dental bridges. Bridges are fixed restorations that replace missing teeth with natural-looking replacements.
Traditional bridges: These use dental crowns to anchor your new teeth in place.
Cantilever bridges: These are used when there are no teeth on one side of the gap.
Implant bridges: Attach replacement teeth to dental implants surgically placed into your gum tissue and jaw.
During your lifetime, it is likely you will have a cavity, caused by tooth decay, which requires repair. We offer a few different restorations including Composite fillings, which are created from a composite resin and match the natural shade of your teeth. Another natural-looking option is glass or resin “ionomers.” Your dentist will explain which is the best choice for you.
Dr. Paul and Aaron Wulff, our knowledgeable dentists, will only suggest a tooth extraction when necessary due to severe tooth decay, gum disease, trauma, or impacted/misaligned teeth.
We make you feel comfortable and use great care and skill whenever we perform a tooth extraction. After the treatment, we recommend a high-quality cosmetic and restorative treatment to replace the missing tooth.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays can be used to repair a tooth damaged by decay, fractures, breaks, or old fillings that need to be replaced. They are more conservative than crowns and usually last longer than fillings.
Dental inlays and onlays can be made from several different materials, including gold and natural-looking porcelain. The difference is that a dental onlay is used when the cusps of the tooth have been affected while an inlay is used when the cusps remain intact. Both are a durable and functional choice for tooth restoration.
