Restorative Dentistry To Repair and Restore
Restorative dentistry is used to restore the strength, appearance, and function of your teeth. Our Coral Springs, FL dental practice offers restorative dental treatments using the best and most durable materials to produce lasting restorations that look and feel natural, allowing you to smile proudly.
We use tooth-colored composite dental fillings for minor cavities. These mercury-free fillings are safer for patients and more aesthetic than traditional metal fillings because they blend in naturally with your smile.
Porcelain and Zirconia Dental Crowns
Our Coral Springs dental practice provides full-coverage crowns made from realistic-looking Zirconia and porcelain. These materials offer superior aesthetic results, making them an excellent choice to protect your remaining tooth structure. Crowns can also be used in conjunction with dental implants to replace missing teeth.
CEREC Same Day Crowns
We offer CEREC same day crowns, an innovative system which makes it possible for patients to receive a custom-made dental crown the same day their tooth is prepared rather than having to wait up to two weeks for a lab-created restoration.
Porcelain Dental Bridges
Our Coral Springs dental office provides natural-looking dental bridges, a restoration that uses prosthetic teeth (also known as pontics) to fill the gap created by missing teeth. Crowns are placed on adjacent teeth to hold the bridge in place.
Dental implants are small biocompatible titanium posts or screws that are placed in the jawbone as a replacement for the root of a missing tooth. The titanium post fuses with the bone to create a stable base where a replacement crown can be attached. Your replacement tooth will be carefully crafted to look, feel, and function just like a natural tooth.
Dental Implant Repair
If your dental implant feels loose, the tissue surrounding it is swollen, or the restoration attached to your implant is damaged, call us to schedule an emergency appointment. Dental implants have a high success rate, but in rare circumstances, problems can occur.
Dental Implant-Supported Dentures
For patients who have lost all or most of their teeth, implant-supported dentures can significantly improve quality of life by restoring the ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. We provide a range implant-supported denture options in Coral Springs, including permanent, snap-on, full, and partial dentures.
We offer traditional dentures that are held in place with adhesives to restore your smile after tooth loss. Our traditional denture options include full dentures that replace an entire arch of missing teeth and partial dentures, which are used when there are still some healthy teeth on an arch that do not need replacement.
Dentures are custom-made for each of our patients for the best possible fit. That said, as your jawbone heals and changes after tooth loss, your dentures may begin to feel too loose or too tight, or you might experience chafing or irritation on your gums if your dentures slip or shift throughout the day.
Our dentists can reline or adjust your dentures to help them fit better. If your dentures are causing discomfort or irritation, call us today to schedule an appointment.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
Significant tooth loss and damage, whether due to facial trauma, gum disease, or aging, can have a dramatic impact on your life. A full mouth reconstruction uses one or more dental restoration techniques to help restore your smile and your confidence.
Frequently Asked Questions About Restorative Dentistry
How much does it cost to restore a tooth?
There are many options for restorative dentistry and the prices vary depending on which treatment you need. A dental filling restores a tooth that has suffered a small amount of decay, so this type of restoration is usually inexpensive, while a dental implant that replaces the tooth both above and below the gumline is more costly.
Is it painful to have a crown put on your tooth?
No, dental crowns are not painful. When your tooth is being prepared for your crown, we will numb both the tooth and the tissue surrounding it, so you won’t feel any discomfort while we work. You may have some tooth sensitivity after the procedure, but this is usually mild.
What is the best option for replacing missing teeth?
Dental implants are generally regarded as the best option for replacing missing teeth. This is because they’re the only option that also replaces the root of the tooth, which helps prevent bone loss from occurring in the jaw. This keeps your bite strong and prevents facial collapse, which can cause a prematurely aged appearance.
Can you get dentures that look like real teeth?
Yes, it’s possible to get dentures that look like real teeth. We design and fabricate dentures for each individual patient for the best possible results. By taking an individualized approach, we can avoid the cookie cutter appearance that many people associate with dentures.
