Addressing a Range of Concerns 

The purpose of restorative dentistry is to treat teeth that have been affected by decay or trauma, including concerns such as: 

  • Chips
  • Tooth loss
  • Cracks
  • Infection

We use only the highest quality materials so many of our restorative treatments also improve the aesthetics of your smile.

Restorative dentistry encompasses several procedures designed to improve your oral health.

Procedures We Offer 

We offer a variety of restorative procedures including: 

Dental Implants
These titanium posts are inserted into the jawbone to act as artificial tooth roots. Dental implants act as a foundation for restorations to provide durable tooth replacement.
Dental Crowns
Designed to replicate the natural tooth structure, a dental crown is placed over a compromised tooth to protect it from further damage. A dental crown can also be attached to a dental implant to replace a single missing tooth.
Dentures
Dentures can be provided to replace one or both dental arches. These restorations can be secured using dental adhesive or connected to dental implants for greater stability.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are used to address moderately sized areas of decay. An inlay is used to repair the area between the cusps of the tooth, whereas an onlay extends down the sides of the tooth.
Fillings
Small amounts of dental decay can be treated with a filling. Once the decay has been removed, the filling material will be applied to strengthen the tooth.
Dental Bridges
A dental bridge can be provided to close the gap caused by one, two, or three consecutive missing teeth. A bridge is supported by either dental crowns attached to neighboring teeth or by dental implants.
Dental Bonding
If a portion of your tooth has chipped or broken off, dental bonding can be used to restore the shape and structure. Bonding is often used for aesthetic purposes to conceal imperfections or achieve a more consistent appearance amongst teeth.

After a thorough examination, Dr. Wasserman can recommend the best treatment for your needs.
