It’s not uncommon for patients to visit us with broken or decayed teeth, because our pearly whites aren’t indestructible. Over time, teeth grinding, poor oral hygiene, and other conditions can put your teeth at a higher risk of developing issues. Fortunately, we offer several natural-looking, durable treatments that can fix these problems and restore the strength and appearance of your grin. With our custom-tailored dental fillings, dental crowns, and other options for restorative dentistry in Long Beach, NY, you can rest assured knowing that your smile looks and feels healthy.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, cavities are among the top three most common oral health problems among Americans. When left untreated, something as small as a cavity can turn into a serious problem that causes permanent damage to your smile. That’s why we use biocompatible, durable, composite resin dental fillings to stop the decay in its tracks and restore the health of your tooth. These fillings are also color-matched to the enamel of your surrounding teeth, so they’re virtually unnoticeable, especially to onlookers.
Dental crowns are custom-tailored, cap-like restorations that are designed to fit over the visible, biting surface of your teeth that sits above your gums. They can be used to protect treated teeth, fortify teeth with large fillings in them, and even correct the shape and structure of severely misshapen teeth. Patients often have theirs crafted from custom-shaded porcelain or ceramic because once they’re placed over the tooth, they flawlessly blend in with the rest of the smile.
