Crowns & Bridgework: Crowns become necessary when there is insufficient tooth structure to support a filling. Teeth that are severely broken down from decay or fractured can be fully restored to proper appearance and function with a crown restoration.
Crowns cover the tooth completely, fitting just at the gumline and protecting the remaining tooth. Most crowns are tooth-colored porcelain. The shade is customized to match your other teeth so that your crown will look just like a natural tooth.
Bridgework works like a series of connected crowns, replacing missing teeth by bridging the gap and using the surrounding teeth as abutments.
Partials: We provide partial dentures for patients who want to fill the gap caused by missing teeth. This type of denture keeps all the teeth aligned and with proper care, saves them from further decay or infection in the gums.
There are several types of removable partial dentures. All of them use standard plastic denture teeth as replacements for the missing teeth. The difference between them is the material that is used to support the denture teeth and retain the partial denture in the mouth. At your visit, Dr. Krystyna Zietkiewicz will educate you on the type of partial that will best fit your life style.
Dentures: There are different types of dentures that you can chose from. Having a full set of dentures, that fit correctly, can restore your self-esteem by giving support back to your lips and cheeks, making you look more natural and even giving you a youthful appearance. In addition, you also regain your eating ability.
Dental Implants : Approximately 49% of Americans between the ages of 18 and 64 are missing at least one tooth. Dental Implants are the most advanced tooth replacement procedure. Dental Implants never develop decay, never require root canal treatments and there are no age limits, young as well as older patients can be candidates for dental implants.
