Reconstructive dentistry in NYC at our office combines restorative and cosmetic dentistry. It is this approach that blends both the science and art of creating a beautiful smile.
Who Requires Reconstructive Dentistry
There are many patients that may be candidates for reconstructive dentistry. Firstly, there are a number of people who have multiple dental problems that need to be treated comprehensively. These patients may be missing several teeth, have numerous large fillings that are failing or showing signs of decay, suffering from cracked or broken teeth, or teeth that are badly worn down. Patients may also have conditions like Ectodermal Dysplasia, Amelogenesis, or Dentinogenesis Imperfecta that will require reconstructive dentistry for extensive restoration of their teeth.
Treatments for reconstructive dentistry may include:
Dental crowns: Fixed prosthetic restorations that are permanently cemented to repair a damaged tooth to its natural size and shape.
Porcelain veneers: Thin, custom-made shells of tooth colored material that is bonded to cover the front surface of your teeth to improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile.
Dental bridge work: Composed of two or more crowns to bridge a gap created by missing teeth.
Dental implant surgery: A revolutionary technique that offers an effective way to replace missing teeth, where a screw-like titanium fixture is placed in the bone that underlies your gum tissue and then a special ceramic crown is placed.
Removable restorations: Replaces one or more missing teeth, but unlike a fixed bridge, does not require a tooth on each side of the missing teeth but are removable.
Onlays/inlays: Made as a single, solid piece that fits the specific size and shape of a cavity that is then cemented in place in the mouth.
All procedures will be coordinated to fit your schedule and minimize the amount of time you need to spend in our office. In addition to improved esthetics many patients will experience improved chewing and jaw function. In many cases, other specialties like periodontics(gum specialist), endodontics (root canal specialist) or orthodontics can be utilized for the best possible outcome.
