Restorative Treatments At Dental Arts of Boston in 02110
A tooth filling is used to treat cavities and minor tooth decay. The material used in the restoration is composite resin, which is a mixture of plastic and glass. Composite fillings match the natural color of your teeth and are bonded to the teeth for a stronghold. Many patients in 02110 choose composite fillings because it requires less of the healthy parts of the tooth to be removed before being applied. The process can be completed in a single appointment.
Some patients who experience decay or damage to the biting surfaces of their molars may need a dental crown to restore the chewing surface. This restoration covers the entire tooth from the gum lineup. These are custom-made to fit in the mouth so that they look and function just like natural teeth.
Dental crowns in 02110 are restorations that are placed over the entire tooth in order to restore a tooth’s function and appearance. A dental crown is custom-made to fit over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. They are often referred to by patients as “caps.” The crowns we offer at our practice in 02110 are made of porcelain (tooth-colored) or zirconia (metal-free) materials. Porcelain crowns can be matched to the color of the surrounding teeth, unlike metal crowns which are visible through the smile line.
A dental bridge in 02110 is a fixed treatment option for replacing missing teeth. The prosthetic teeth sit on top of two crowns, which attach to healthy teeth surrounding the gap. This forms a bridge over the mouth. The bridge is permanently cemented into place and functions like natural teeth. It prevents shifting of the surrounding teeth to help maintain the smile’s structure. Additionally, bridges can improve biting and chewing abilities and prevent gum disease caused by shifting or poor oral hygiene habits.
Dental implants in 02110 are a permanent solution to missing teeth that function and look exactly like natural teeth. They work by mimicking the natural tooth root and supporting the surrounding teeth with an implant post that looks like a real tooth. They are a great option for many patients, but not everyone is a suitable candidate. To find out if dental implants are right for you, schedule an appointment with one of our dentists at Dental Arts of Boston in 02110 by calling our office. We will examine your smile and then recommend the appropriate procedure for your needs. We look forward to helping you regain your healthy smile with dental implants!
