Following are a few of our more popular smile repair treatments. At your consultation, Dr. Petrosino will cover your individual options in detail so you can decide how best to repair your smile.
Dental Crowns & Bridges Can Give You Back a Full Smile
Crowns and bridges are the workhorses of dentistry. These versatile restorations give us many options for repairing and replacing your teeth. A single crown can be used to repair a damaged or worn tooth to restore its function and beauty. It will prevent further dental problems, plus it will restore almost all your chewing capacity.
We can replace one or more missing teeth with a new bridge. This appliance will anchor firmly in place to your other teeth and fill in the gaps in your smile. You’ll have more confidence in smiling, plus eating will be easier.
Replace Missing Teeth & Preserve Your Jawbone With Dental Implants
Dental implant technology has grown substantially in recent decades. Today, these replacement teeth roots are usually made from titanium because this metal will fuse with your jawbone and become one. Your implants should last for a lifetime without needing any special care.
Once they are fully fused, we can secure new replacement teeth to them. For a single missing tooth, a beautiful new crown/implant combination will complete your smile. If you have several missing teeth, we can secure a bridge to two or more implants. Plus, an implant bridge offers the advantage of letting you avoid the tooth modification that a standard bridge requires. Afterward, you’ll have a full mouth of teeth and your mealtimes will be more enjoyable!
One other big benefit of dental implants is that they will help keep your jaw healthy and strong. Without a tooth root in place, your bone mass will actually begin to deteriorate over time, potentially leading to changes in your facial structure and appearance.
With an implant, your bone will be stimulated by the act of chewing, helping grow new bone cells and keeping your bone intact. You’ll be able to eat whatever you want, plus you’ll look younger and healthier!
Dental Veneers Can Quickly Improve Your Smile
Although dental veneers are often a cosmetic dentistry treatment, they also work great at repairing smile flaws such as chips, cracks, gaps, worn teeth, and badly stained teeth. Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain similar in shape to fingernails. Dr. Petrosino can bond them to the front of your damaged teeth to instantly give you a celebrity smile!
Usually it just takes two appointments to complete your veneers treatment. At your initial appointment, we’ll discuss your veneers options, make small modifications to your teeth, and take impressions so that your veneers can be made. Once they’re ready, you’ll return to the office and Dr. Petrosino will cement them into place. You’ll leave with a beautiful smile that others will notice right away!
