By combining restorative dentistry with cosmetic dentistry and neuromuscular procedures, full-mouth restoration can successfully rebuild your smile so that it looks amazing, feels natural and comfortable, and works properly. Full-mouth restorations are customized to every patient, just like smile makeovers, though restorations often involve the replacement or repair of a great many teeth and can include procedures such as cavity repair, dental implants, jaw alignment, TMJ treatment, gum disease therapy, porcelain crowns, porcelain veneers, and more. Chronic mouth pain or soreness, loose teeth, bleeding gums, headaches, a sunken face, missing teeth, or worn and damaged teeth are all signs that you should consult your Manhattan dentist about restorative dentistry for your smile. Full-mouth restoration is just one of many components of Manhattan Restorative Dentistry.
Porcelain Inlays & Onlays
When you need a solution that is more secure than a dental filling but less invasive than a porcelain crown, consider porcelain inlays and onlays. Used to repair partially decayed, fractured or damaged teeth, inlays and onlays stabilize the surrounding tooth structure while preventing further decay or deterioration. Dental inlays fit inside a tooth, while dental onlays extend over the cusps of a tooth and are shaped into a flattering and functional structure. Onlays are often referred to as partial crowns. Inlays and onlays are often used when there is not much tooth structure to work with and adding a tooth-colored filling or making room for a crown would further compromise the integrity and stability of the natural tooth.
Tooth Colored Fillings
Composite fillings are often referred to as tooth-colored fillings, and this option for repairing a cavity or damaged tooth has become popular for two main reasons: Tooth-colored fillings are free of toxic dental mercury, and tooth-colored fillings look and function like natural teeth, disguising the fact that a filling was even put in place. In restorative dentistry, many patients opt to have their amalgam silver fillings safely removed to prevent further exposure to mercury, and their teeth are then repaired with tooth-colored fillings.
Commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth, dental bridges often include dental crowns as part of their solution. If you have a hole in your smile, the strength of your jawbone can be so compromised it will eventually change the shape of your face, causing the remaining teeth in your mouth to shift. A dental bridge is bonded to the neighboring teeth, eliminating the gap that was in your smile, restoring your mouth to fully functional, and restoring you to full confidence in your stable and strong teeth.
When a fracture or decay has weakened a tooth, a dental crown is often the best solution. Bonded securely in place and designed to look like natural teeth, porcelain crowns also function like natural teeth so that you can eat and chew normally without any worries about the solidity of your smile. A dental crown is a cover-up for unsightly tooth problems and are used to restore discolored or misshapen teeth, cover damaged teeth, replace lost tooth structure, and protect weak teeth from breaking.
Modern dentures are revolutionizing the stereotypical reputation of dentures. This removable dental appliance is designed to resemble natural teeth by replacing a great number of missing teeth and surrounding tissue. Partial dentures fill the spaces created by missing teeth while preventing other teeth from shifting. Complete dentures are used when all teeth are missing or all teeth need to be removed because of gum disease or another oral health problem. The durability of dentures improves a person’s ability to eat, chew, and speak while enhancing their appearance and restoring the functionality of their teeth and gums.
Another component of Manhattan Restorative Dentistry are dental implants. When you need to restore the functionality of your smile because of loose or missing teeth, dental implants are one of the most secure and aesthetically pleasing options available. Dental implants can be used to replace any missing tooth, in the process stimulating the jawbone and gums and restoring the solidity and security of your smile. Dental implants are designed to replace the tooth root that is missing, and the prosthetic tooth is attached to the implant so that it is permanent, feels comfortable, and looks just like natural teeth.
All-On-Four Dental Implants
If dentures are an unappealing option to you, dental implants are the secure solution to a mouthful of missing teeth. Whether all of your teeth on the top or bottom of your mouth are missing, All-On-Four dental implants can replace your entire arch of teeth with just four dental implants. You don’t need an implant for every tooth – All-On-Four is constructed of four dental implants that are implanted and heal to become part of your jawbone, stimulating the bone and serving as a base for the prosthetic teeth that are attached to the implants and which create the entirety of your newly restored smile.
All-On-Six Dental Implants
Just like All-On-Four dental implants, All-On-Six dental implants are placed in six spots in the mouth that have the highest bone volume, and this restorative dentistry option even applies to patients who have limited jaw bone tissue. All-On-Six dental implants restore a patient’s ability to eat, chew, and speak normally without the need for removable appliances or complicated at-home care. Dental implants in any form are designed to deliver long-term results that revitalize your smile and increase your self-confidence immediately.
