Our Restorative Dentistry Services

Restorative dentistry repairs the strength and beauty of your smile when trauma, injury, infection, or decay damages one or more teeth. Whenever possible, we work to preserve your natural teeth; natural teeth are “custom-fit” to your individual mouth, and are important to maintain as long as possible. However, when severe damage or decay presents itself, removing part of the tooth may be necessary. In the event of a full dental extraction, we can also provide tooth replacement options that are both functional and beautiful.

restorative dentistry with dentures and crownsPatients most often need restorative procedures after experiencing tooth decay, cracked or broken teeth, tooth pain, missing teeth, or severely worn teeth.

Your restorative dentistry treatment plan may include one or more of the following solutions:

  • Crowns: A dental crown is a “cap” designed for your natural tooth that restores the tooth’s shape, size, appearance, and durability after significant infection, injury, or decay. When placed, the crown covers the entire visible portion of the tooth above the gum line.
  • Composite Fillings: When your dentist detects a hole in your tooth’s enamel from decay—called a cavity— he may use a composite filling to treat it. Unlike traditional amalgam or gold fillings, composite fillings can be shaded to match the color of your natural tooth and offer a more seamless appearance. Your dentist will clean the cavity before using some composite resin material to fill the hole left behind from tooth decay.
  • Inlays / Onlays: To fill larger cavities or to replace old, deteriorating fillings, your dentist may recommend an inlay or onlay. Both made of porcelain, these restorative treatments can repair a larger area for teeth that do not require the full coverage of a dental crown. Inlays fill smaller areas between the cusps of teeth, while onlays include restoration of a cusp (or the top edges of the biting surface of teeth).
  • Bridges: Patients dealing with the loss of several teeth need treatment options to restore the appearance and functionality of a fuller smile. Dental bridges are a permanent solution to tooth loss, and truly act as a type of “bridge” in your mouth. Treatment involves placing dental crowns on two remaining teeth and using those crowns as support structures to “bridge” artificial teeth in between them.
  • Dentures: Full or partial dentures (often referred to as “partials”) are another option for patients needing multiple teeth replacement. Full dentures are for patients who have lost all their teeth. The full set of artificial teeth rests on a gum-colored plastic base which sits on top of the gums. Partials are a replacement option for patients with at least one remaining top and bottom tooth. Partials act as a type of dental bridge and connect consecutive artificial teeth to the patient’s natural tooth through a metal framework.

Dr. Abraham E. Stein

From start to finish, a fabulous experience (sounds like an oxymoron when talking about "dental visits", but actually true). From stepping in and encountering a superbly run front desk and incredible dental hygienist (whom I have seen for 20+ years), great dental assistants, and of course the master himself -- Dr. Stein. He has done amazing things to my 65+ year-old choppers such that they are in the top tier of my peers. Need I say more?
