Our Restoration Options for Patients
Restorative dentistry is a specialty of Paul M Anfenson, DDS, and we’re proud of the care we’ve provided an abundance of our patients to repair their oral health. Our restorative services include the following:
Inlays and Onlays
Our dental care professionals will use inlays and onlays as replacements for fillings. They fit in or on your teeth after tooth decay to repair structural loss such as small cracks. Once we install them, they’re virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth, and they restore the tissue that’s been lost or damaged. If you have damaged or discolored fillings from a previous restoration, we can use inlays and onlays to restore them.
Dentures, Partials, & Bridges
After you’ve lost one or more teeth, we can restore your bite and appearance with dentures, partials, and bridges. Dentures are custom-made replacements for your teeth that fit over your gums and have artificial teeth that look and function like your natural ones. Partials replace several teeth by anchoring artificial replacements to the teeth adjacent to the gap. Bridges fill the vacancy left by one or more teeth by attaching artificial teeth to the neighboring natural ones. Unlike dentures and partials, bridges are not removable. All three of these options allow you to chew, speak, and smile with confidence again.
A dental crown securely fits over your natural tooth to restore its size and shape. We custom-create dental crowns, so they fit precisely and blend in with your natural teeth. Crowns work well for a tooth that’s broken or damaged beyond a filling to repair it. They provide added strength and restore your bite and appearance. You can select a custom shade for your restorations to enhance their cosmetic appeal.
Dental Implant Restoration
For a durable and permanent option to fill the gaps from missing teeth, a dental implant is the closest replacement for a natural tooth. The implant is a titanium rod that we place through your gums and into your jawbone. This stable post holds an artificial tooth that looks, feels, and functions the same as your remaining teeth. With regular care, dental implants provide long-lasting and reliable use.
