Restorative Dentistry - A Comprehensive Approach to a Healthy Mouth
At Wernick Family Dentistry, we provide comprehensive restorative dentistry for people who are suffering from a variety of tooth problems. We pride ourselves on the quality of our restorations, and we use advanced treatments with state-of-the-art technology that improves aesthetics and functionality. Oral health is important to help prevent or detect other physical ailments. Restorative dentistry with early detection will minimize dental work and preserve as much original tooth as possible.
Most people will need some type of restorative dental procedure during their lifetime. This might involve simple fillings or more complex procedures like crowns, bridges or dental implants. There are many different treatments, traditional and alternative, available to restore the appearance and functionality of damaged and decaying teeth. And the earlier the problem is detected, the easier it is to achieve good results.
Aside from fillings, one of the more common and effective solutions for damaged teeth is called a crown. A crown is a replacement cap that is placed over the natural tooth, providing extra strength to the tooth structure and protecting the remaining tooth material. In preparing patients for a crown, a mold of the tooth is taken and then sent to custom labs. Using the mold, a crown is designed to match shape, size and bite of the original tooth and the color is set to match adjacent teeth.
