When you have teeth in need of repair, you may not feel very comfortable or confident about smiling. This affects your self-esteem, not to mention the toll it takes on your oral health. Decayed or fractured teeth may become infected if they’re left untreated, which leads to further damage. Dr. Anthony Giamberardino doesn’t want you to lose hope because restorative dentistry in Medford can repair a damaged or failing smile.
What is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry consists of treatment that is designed to repair damaged or failing teeth such as:
- A dental crown – replaces a damaged tooth while protecting your root
- Dentures or partials – restore a few, or an entire arch of missing teeth
- A dental bridge – replaces one or more adjacent missing teeth
- Dental fillings – fills in cavities caused by tooth decay
At Giamberardino Dental Care, we use the finest quality dental materials, which means that when you receive a restoration from us, it will naturally complement your smile, and you’ll be able to trust and rely on it for years to come.
When Do I Need a Crown or a Bridge?
When your tooth becomes decayed or damaged beyond what a filling is able to repair, a dental crown may become necessary to restore your tooth. It’s custom designed by Dr. Giamberardino to take the place of your damaged tooth, and it will be shaded to match your existing teeth. You’ll be able to brush, floss, eat, and chew as you were always used to doing.
A dental bridge is ideal for restoring one or more missing adjacent teeth. Using your healthy teeth as anchors for dental crowns, a bridge fills in the gaps with natural looking prosthetic teeth. It’s important to keep your anchor teeth clean and healthy with excellent home care and regular dental checkups in order to ensure the longevity of your bridge.
What is a Denture?
A denture is a removable appliance designed to restore an entire arch of missing or failing teeth. It’s customized to complement your face and skin tone, so your new smile will look natural and beautiful. Dentures do have a learning curve as you’re first getting used to eating and talking with them, however most patients appreciate how they immediately restore their smiles.
