Tooth Repair & Replacement in Hudson Valley, NY

When you come in for your appointment, our team will check for signs of wear and tear on your teeth and identify any problems that need to be corrected.

Age, cavities, accidents, and bad habits like teeth grinding can all damage teeth. If problems are not identified and repaired, the tooth may fall out or need to be extracted, which leaves a hole in your mouth. A missing tooth is not just a cosmetic problem; it can impact how you speak and what you can eat. If the space is not filled, the surrounding teeth may drift out of position, causing even more problems.

Fortunately, our experienced dentists have several solutions to repair or replace teeth.

Dental Fillings

More than 90 percent of Americans over the age of 40 have dental decay.

A dental filling is one of the easiest and most cost-effective way to repair a tooth damaged by decay. Tooth-colored fillings are ideal to use when filling cavities or repairing cracked or chipped teeth. These tooth restorations, which are called composite fillings, are strong and fracture-resistant so they are able to withstand the pressure of chewing.

Dental fillings are most effective when only a small part of the tooth has been damaged by decay. You still need to have enough healthy tooth structure left for the dentist to attach the dental filling. If there is not enough healthy enamel, then the dentist will recommend a crown instead.

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a cap for your tooth. It completely covers the tooth above the gum line, strengthening the tooth and allowing it to function normally again so you can eat and speak with ease.

Our dentists at Family Dental Group will create a crown that matches the shape, color, and translucency of your other teeth. Once it’s in place, your friends and family won’t be able to tell it’s not your natural tooth.

Dental Bridges

Fillings and crowns help restore teeth that are damaged but still in place. A dental bridge spans the space left by a tooth that is missing.

Unlike a partial denture, which is removable, a dental bridge is fixed permanently in the mouth. Here’s how it works. The bridge includes two crowns, which fit over the healthy teeth on either side of the missing tooth. They will be attached to an artificial tooth, called a pontic. The pontic looks just like a crown; the only difference is that there is not a real tooth beneath it.

If you have one missing tooth, your dental bridge will require two crowns and one pontic. This is called a 3-unit bridge. If you have two missing teeth, the bridge will require two crowns and two pontics. This is called a 4-unit bridge. Longer bridges can also be created.

If you need a dental bridge, contact one of our dental offices in Hudson Valley today to schedule an appointment.

Dentures & Partials

If you’ve lost some or all of your teeth, it’s important to replace them. Teeth not only help us chew; they also support our mouth, cheeks, and jaws. If teeth are missing, the surrounding teeth can drift out of position and change your appearance dramatically.

There are two types of dentures: complete, or full, dentures and partial dentures. Patients who need to replace an entire row of teeth use a complete denture. Patients who are only missing a few teeth use a partial denture; the artificial teeth fill the gaps in between the patient’s remaining natural teeth.

Unlike bridges, which are fixed in place, dentures are removable. There are several types of dentures available, including implant-supported dentures. READ MORE

Dental Implants

If you’re missing a tooth, consider replacing it with a dental implant. A dental implant is a long-lasting tooth replacement option that mimics the entire tooth, not just the crown.

A dental implant is a titanium post that is placed in your jawbone and then topped with either a natural-looking crown or with a specific type of denture. Implants have a high success rate and often last a lifetime. If you are seeking a tooth replacement option that will last decades, then a dental implant may be the right choice for you. READ MORE
