We are open - safety is our top priority!
If missing or damaged teeth are adversely affecting your self-esteem or your physical or oral health, then restorative dentistry can help restore both the look and the function of your teeth. Not intended to be used solely for a beautiful smile, your teeth are integral to your good physical and good oral health, so they need to be healthy and functional. Check out our Brewster office for restorative dentistry. If you need crowns, bridges or fillings in Brewster, then call us for an appointment.
Why Should I Get My Teeth Filled?
If you have decayed teeth, then the infection can travel throughout your body and cause health problems for you. You’ll probably find it difficult to chew, so you’ll have a limited diet, and you’ll be less inclined to smile because of your damaged teeth. A tooth filling can repair a decayed tooth and prevent further damage as well as restore the appearance of the tooth. If you need dental fillings in Brewster, then call us for an appointment.
Why Should I Get a Bridge or Crowns for Teeth?
Like a filling, a bridge or dental crown can restore the functionality of your tooth or teeth and prevent further damage. Dental crowns, often called dental caps because they cap the tooth, are used when a tooth is damaged too extensively for a filling to be feasible. A bridge is used when one or more teeth are missing and it’s secured in a variety of methods. If you need restorative dentistry, then call our Brewster office for an appointment.
Which Types of Dentists Provide Restorative Dentistry?
All general dentists can provide restorative dentistry, so if you need this type of work, call our Brewster office for more information or to schedule an appointment.
What Should I Expect My Restorative Dentistry to Cost?
The cost of your dental procedures will be unique to you and will be influenced by the type and location of the procedures you need, additional work needed, materials used, and any insurance benefits you have. During your initial consultation, we’ll provide you with a comprehensive estimate of your dental crown cost, your tooth filling cost or your dental bridge cost. If you need these types of procedures but can’t afford them, we’ll work with you on flexible financing and payment options so that you don’t have to forego needed dentistry because of financial constraints. Call our Brewster office for more information or to schedule a consultation.
Which Type of Tooth Filling Will I Need?
Tooth fillings are available in several different materials, such as porcelain, amalgam, gold or tooth-colored composite. Not all types of fillings are suitable for all types of teeth, but your dentist will recommend those that will work for you.
Which Type of Tooth Crown Will I Need?
Like fillings, crowns are available in a variety of materials, not all of which are suitable for all types of teeth. Your dentist will advise you of the best options for your situation, but we usually use ceramic for the front teeth and gold or another material for the rear teeth.
Which Type of Bridge Will I Need?
We offer several types of bridges for our patients, but the two most common are traditional bridges and cantilever bridges. A traditional bridge is comprised of a row of pontic teeth that has a crown at each end. The crowns are secured to abutment teeth by a high-bond cement, so you needn’t worry that your bridge will fall out or move around. If abutment teeth aren’t available, then implants are sufficient. When an implant is available on only one side, then a cantilever bridge can be used, but it’s not recommended for molars.
What Will Happen During a Tooth Crown Installation?
When you have a crown installed in our Brewster office, you’ll need two office visits and three steps. During your first appointment, your dentist will prepare the tooth and then take an impression of it, which will be used to fabricate both your temporary and your permanent crown. We’ll install the temporary before you leave, and when we receive your permanent crown, you’ll return to our office. We’ll place the permanent crown, adjust it for optimal comfort and fit, and then secure it using a high-bond adhesive. Each step will take between 30 minutes and an hour.
What Will Happen During a Tooth Bridge Installation?
When you have a bridge installed in our Brewster office, you’ll need two office appointments. During your first appointment, your dentist will prepare the abutment teeth and then we’ll make an impression of the area. This will serve as the model for both your temporary and permanent dental bridges. We’ll place the temporary before you leave, and we’ll notify you when we receive your permanent bridge. You’ll then return and we’ll adjust your permanent tooth bridge for maximum fit and comfort, and then we’ll affix it using a high-bond cement.
