Traditional Dental Crown & Bridge
Dental crowns and bridges are two of the most tried and trusted restorations in all of dentistry, and the reason for that is simple: they work!
A crown simply fits on top of a natural tooth in order to replace and support damaged enamel. It’s shaped to look and act like a real tooth, and with one, Dr. Shahrestany can repair a large cavity, rebuild a broken tooth, and even cosmetically enhance a misshapen or undersized tooth. Most often, she uses crowns that are made of 100% dental porcelain because they are indistinguishable from natural teeth.
And, for patients who are missing one or more teeth in a row, a crown can be used to support a bridge to fill in the gap. A prosthetic tooth is bonded to crowns positioned on either side of it to complete a patient’s smile in a strong, secure, and natural-looking way.
If you have a small cavity or slightly damaged tooth, then a tooth-colored filling is likely the perfect repair. As their name indicates, they can be specially shaded to match a patient’s enamel, helping the restoration practically disappear within the smile. And, they’re entirely metal-free, meaning these fillings won’t make a tooth more sensitive to hot and cold temperatures. They also enable Dr. Shahrestany to use smaller, more conservative fillings in order to better preserve a patient’s natural dental structure, ensuring the longevity and strength of the tooth.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
If you’re currently dealing with multiple missing teeth, then dentures can offer a reliable, comfortable, and affordable way to reclaim your smile. Modern-day dentures are more natural-looking and reliable than anything your parents or grandparents might have used, and when they’re provided by Dr. Shahrestany, you can trust that you’ll receive a prosthetic that looks and feels like a natural part of your body. Whether you are missing just a few teeth or all of them, she’ll take the time and effort to design a denture that will help you eat, speak, and smile with complete confidence.
