Restorative Dentistry becomes more important the older you get because your teeth start to decay and lose their health, which is why at our dentist office, we specialize in geriatric dentistry. We like to make sure all of our patients receive the best care and have the most options to maintain their dental health. We offer several options for reviving your smile to function like it should.
Do you want to fill the gap between your teeth and finally have a perfect smile? If so, Dr. Preziosi in Clark, New Jersey, may recommend a dental bridge to do the job!
A dental bridge is made up of two crowns that are placed on both sides of the gap with fake teeth in between. These false teeth can be made of gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. A bridge can restore your smile, maintain the shape of your face, give you the ability to properly chew and speak once again, and prevent your natural teeth from drifting out of position.
The process of placing a dental bridge usually takes about two office visits. During your first visit, the abutment teeth are prepared. This involves your dentist removing a portion of your tooth to allow room for a crown to be placed. After part of the tooth is removed, he will make impressions of your teeth and send them to a lab. Once your bridge is made, you will come back to the office so we can check and adjust the bridge. If it is the right fit for you, your dentist will cement the bridge into place.
Your crown placement should generally take two visits to the dental office. The first visit will involve examining and preparing the tooth. Your dentist will take x-rays to check the roots of the tooth, and if the tooth is affected from decay and infection, a root canal treatment might be required before the crown is placed. Next, your dentist will numb the area around the tooth and file it down to allow room for the crown. Dr. Preziosi will make impressions of your teeth and send them to the lab, where the permanent crown will be created. Your second visit will involve your dentist cementing the dental crown into place after it is tested and proved to have the right fit and color.
Have you lost multiple teeth? Are you ready to fill your smile with beautiful, straight teeth? Dentures are the affordable solution for you. Dr. Preziosi gives you the option of dentures because they are removable replacements of your teeth. You are able to wear the product at any time you want with the full ability of natural teeth. This is a good option for someone who wants to fill their mouth with beautiful teeth that give them back their ability to chew and smile with confidence.
If you are missing a tooth and looking for a solution and are willing to pay for the best treatment, dental implants are for you. You can replace just one tooth or several teeth. With dental implants, you don’t have to worry about dentures falling out or it looking unnatural. Dental implants are long lasting, look natural and can restore your smile, speech, self-esteem and oral health!
