Restorative Dentistry Procedures
Although preventive dentistry can reduce the amount of damage your teeth experience, it can’t prevent it all. Most people will need restorative dentistry at some point in their lives.
Restorative dentistry is about making your teeth healthy, strong, and functional again after damage. Our Westchester dentists are committed to giving you a smile that is just as functional as beautiful through techniques like endodontic therapy, dental crowns, contouring teeth, and providing fillings.
More than 90% of Americans will develop a cavity over the course of their lives. The most common treatment for a cavity is a filling. Advanced Dentistry of Scarsdale uses tooth-colored composite fillings instead of metal amalgam.
Inlays & Onlays
Dental inlays & onlays are ceramic fillings. We use these fillings when you have a large cavity because they are more attractive, like natural tooth enamel, and stronger than other fillings.
Dental Crowns & Bridges
A dental crown covers a badly damaged tooth to protect and support it. It also gives the tooth an entirely new visible surface so that it’s beautifying the tooth at the same time it’s repairing it.
A dental bridge is a form of tooth replacement that uses one or more natural teeth to support the prosthetic tooth. Usually, this means putting dental crowns over neighboring teeth. These crowns are attached to the prosthetic tooth, giving you a fully functional replacement tooth.
Dental implants are realistic artificial teeth anchored into your natural jaw tissue. They are a permanent solution to tooth loss, bone loss, and aesthetic concerns tied to missing teeth. With our periodontists and prosthodontists, you’ll enjoy the benefits of specialist care throughout the entire procedure.
