Restoration Dentistry to Bring Back Your Smile
Even with the best dental care, you can still experience tooth decay, cracked or chipped teeth, and even missing teeth. Any of these problems can have a negative effect on the way you look and the way you feel about yourself. At Art of Smiles Dentistry in Harrison we provide restorative dentistry to help you correct dental problems and give you back a healthy smile you can be confident in.
Restoration dentistry includes:
Crowns: Caps that fit over your damaged tooth to restore function and beauty. Crowns are most commonly used after root canal therapy or with an implant to replace a missing tooth.
Fillings: Used to repair minimal tooth fractures, decayed, or damaged surfaces of teeth. Filling material can also be used to even out the surface of a tooth for better biting or chewing function.
Tooth Replacement: Dental bridges, partial dentures, and dental implants are all used to replace missing teeth that would adversely affect your oral health. Shifting teeth, change in bite, speech impediments, and increased risk for gum disease are all problems that can be successfully addressed by replacing missing teeth.
Inlays and Onlays: Used on teeth that are too damaged for a simple filling but not damaged enough to need a full crown. These restorations can be made from gold, porcelain, or other ceramic materials.
Veneers: Thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored material used to cover the front surface of a tooth to improve the appearance. Veneers can be used to change the size, shape, or length of a tooth and are perfect for covering stains, chips, or gaps.
A Variety of Restoration Materials for Your Needs
Dental restorations can be made of a variety of materials. Traditionally, crowns and bridges would be made of metal, in part or completely, to guarantee its durability. Modern dental technology can use porcelain and zirconia to create prosthetics that are almost as durable. These ceramic options come with the added benefit of blending into the rest of the smile for a uniform appearance.
Dr. Michael Antone has the skills and experience to assess what material options will work best for you. Whether metal, porcelain or a combination of the two suits you best, he makes sure you receive that exact type of care.
