Learn about Restorative Dentistry by our East Meadow Dentist
For patients looking to renew the health, function, and appearance of their smiles, modern cosmetic dental restorations provide durable and natural-looking prosthetics that are second only to your real teeth. At the East Meadow practice of Dr. Michael C. DeFilippis
, we provide patients with comprehensive dental restorations that help them achieve their best smiles.
Cosmetic Restoration Options
With the strength and appeal of dental porcelain, these restorations are ideal for the whole smile. Our doctor and team use these materials in several treatments and, with help from state-of-the-art lab facilities, are able to provide patients with durable restorations that are specially designed to fit their smiles. These treatments include:
Porcelain Crowns: Made entirely from dental porcelain or with porcelain fused to metal, these crowns are ideal for teeth that are visible when you smile, and back teeth that need to sustain strength for chewing. Porcelain crowns can be matched to the shade of your teeth and are resistant to discoloration.
Dental Bridges: For patients who are missing one or more teeth, dental bridges are able to provide a secure prosthetic replacement. These bridges are fixed into the smile by way of crowns placed on the teeth neighboring the gap in your smile. These crowns support the prosthetic tooth, providing you with stability and ideal smile aesthetics.
Full and Partial Dentures: Dentures are available from our office for patients who are missing many, or all of the teeth in an arch. These prosthetics are held in place by either a mixture of adhesive and natural suction, a metal framework that attaches to existing teeth, or by dental implants. Dentures help return the bite function and, with the support of dental implants, can make regular activities like speech and eating easier.
Dental Implants: In replacing singular and multiple teeth, dental implants provide a long-lasting and stable solution to missing teeth. Surgically placed implant posts fuse to the jaw, creating a root-like structure to support crowns, bridges, and dentures. These durable restorations can last a lifetime, and do not require surrounding tooth structures to be affected before placement.
