Do you have teeth that are damaged or missing, or a smile that needs a little help to look its best? If so, you will benefit from a porcelain restoration of one type or another. Our Mastic restorative dentist at our practice, Contemporary Dental Associates, will be able to provide you with the necessary restoration including dental veneers, dental bridges, or dental crowns.
At Contemporary Dental Associates our expert and highly-trained dentists are Dr. Dean Delle Donne and Dr. Anthony DeLio. Both of our fine dentists are experts in the area of porcelain restorations. Our practice specializes in preventive, cosmetic, restorative and implant dentistry. Dental veneers are a very popular type of porcelain restoration that are used to make purely cosmetic changes to a smile. Veneers are thin, but strong shells made of porcelain that cover the front portion of a tooth. The veneers are used by our Mastic restorative dentist to correct many cosmetic smile problems including: teeth that are too short; teeth that are severely discolored but cannot be corrected using dental bleaching; teeth that have uneven gaps between them; teeth that are chipped; teeth that have surface cracks in the enamel; teeth that are slightly misaligned; and teeth that are poorly shaped. The porcelain veneer will not serve to strengthen the tooth or improve its function, so it can only be used to fix purely cosmetic teeth problems.
Our Mastic restorative dentist will use other types of porcelain restorations to fix other dental problems. Both fixed and removable dental bridges can be used to replace missing teeth. Porcelain full and partial dentures are also used to replace missing teeth. They can sometimes be secured by dental implants to ensure that the dentures do not slip during eating or speech. Additionally, if a tooth needs to be covered to be protected, or for a cosmetic reason, our dentist will use a porcelain crown. Porcelain crowns are also used by our dentist as the top portion of a dental implant. Porcelain crowns are very strong. Like all of our porcelain restorations or veneers, they are color-matched to the adjacent teeth so no one is able to tell that you have them in your mouth. If you would like to see one of our fine dentists to see what can be done to improve your smile or bite situation, contact us today for an appointment.
Living with missing teeth can affect your everyday life in plenty of ways. In terms of your appearance, you may feel self-conscious about the gaps left behind in your smile, in the way your facial profile looks, or even how your speech may have been affected by the loss. You may have increased difficulty eating, chewing or biting and you may be experiencing strain due to an uneven bite. Our Moriches oral surgeon here at Contemporary Dental Associates can provide you with dental implants that can address all of these issues and more.
There are several ways to restore a smile after losing teeth. Dental bridges and dentures are some other ways in which missing teeth can be replaced, but they do not provide the same strength and support that dental implants can give you. Unlike bridges or dentures, dental implants are firmly planted in your mouth. Dental implants look, feel and perform more like natural teeth more than any other method of teeth replacement or restoration. Here at Contemporary Dental Associates, our Moriches oral surgeons Dr. Donne and Dr. DeLio can provide you with dental implants that will restore your smile and your bite completely. Before anything is done, however, you will need a thorough oral exam. During this exam, Dr. Donne or Dr. DeLio will make sure that your teeth and gums are otherwise healthy, free of tooth decay or gum disease. They will also pay attention to the current geography of your mouth. This will help inform the surgical procedure. If you have enough bone mass to support the surgery, then you will be able to begin. First, titanium posts are inserted into the jawbone through the gums. These posts will act as artificial tooth roots and will provide your artificial teeth with the support they need. Once these posts heal, your artificial teeth can be attached. These artificial teeth will be designed to look completely natural and match any other teeth that you have.
If you have missing teeth and are interested in the sturdy, reliable strength that dental implants can offer you, simply call us here at Contemporary Dental Associates. You can schedule an appointment with one of our Moriches oral surgeons to discuss your options and to find out whether you are eligible for this surgery today.
