You won’t find a better St. Joseph restorative dentist than Dr. Sara Bratton.

Porcelain Inlays/Porcelain Onlays

Dr. Sara Bratton provides expert care for extensive tooth repairs with inlays and onlays. Inlays are designed to fit snugly within a damaged tooth, while onlays are used when the tooth’s sides require repair that extends to the edges. These restorations are meticulously custom-molded and color-matched to ensure a seamless blend with your natural teeth. Our commitment to precision and aesthetics means you can trust us for high-quality inlays and onlays in St. Joseph that preserve your dental health while enhancing the appearance of your smile. Experience superior dental care with tailored solutions for your unique needs.


When a tooth is decayed or damaged beyond the need for a filling or inlay/onlay, but not badly enough to warrant removing it, an artificial tooth, called a crown is fitted over the damaged tooth. Custom-made right here in our office, crowns are a much faster process than they used to be. When there is a gap between teeth, crowns can be put on the neighboring teeth, with one or more additional artificial teeth connected to them to form what is known as a bridge.

Dentures & Partial Dentures

At Bratton Dental Co., we offer comprehensive solutions for replacing multiple teeth. Whether you need a full or partial set of dentures, we have you covered. Choose from three options: removable dentures, implant-supported removable dentures, and permanent implant-secured dentures. Dr. Bratton’s expertise will guide you in selecting the most suitable option for your unique needs. Each option is carefully designed to restore your smile’s functionality and aesthetics, providing you with the confidence and comfort you deserve. Enhance your oral health and regain a natural-looking smile with our tailored denture tooth replacement solutions in St. Joseph.

Dental Implants

Have you lost a tooth or two and been searching for top-notch tooth replacement solutions? Search no more! At Bratton Dental Co., we offer high quality dental Implant solutions. Dental implants stand out as the closest thing to a natural tooth in both appearance and function. Our process involves the placement of a titanium rod in your jaw by one of Dr. Bratton’s skilled oral surgeon colleagues. Once those new “tooth roots” have healed, a custom-made and color-matched crown is meticulously crafted and affixed to the titanium rod. This comprehensive approach ensures that your new tooth not only looks and functions like a real tooth but also delivers lasting results for a confident, healthy smile.

Dr. Bratton is phenomenal! I first started seeing her as my dentist and we started to talk about my discomfort with my jaw. She advised on some first steps we could make to help with the pain and go from there. I feel like I’m getting my life back. She truly cares about her patients and works to find the best solutions tailored to you. I live in Kansas City but I will drive to St. Joe to continue to get her amazing care! Office and staff are fantastic too! Call and book today!

I have had bad experiences at the dentist throughout my life and because of this I neglected my teeth for a long time. About a year ago I gave dr bratton a shot after someone recommended her. She has done root canals, fillings, extractions on me you name it. I no longer have a fear of the dentist. She makes sure you’re 100% comfortable. It is always a good experience going to that office and dealing with any of them.
