Restorative Dentistry Cambridge

Repair & Strengthen Your Smile

It’s great news that the incidence of tooth decay has significantly diminished over the years due to the use of fluorides and an increase in patient awareness. However, teeth are still susceptible to decay, infection, and breakage, which means they often need to be restored. Through improved techniques and modern technology, we are now able to offer more options for restoring a tooth back to its normal shape, appearance, and function. Should your teeth ever require a restorative treatment, you can rest assured knowing we will always discuss with you the available options and recommend what we believe to be the most comfortable and least invasive treatment.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns

Dental crowns are also commonly known as “caps” and are designed to fit over teeth that have sustained significant damage or decay. Designed to mimic a tooth’s enamel shade, the porcelain used to protect vulnerable teeth allows patients to feel more confident when smiling. The dental crowns crafted by our team require two visits for completion but can last 10-20 years as long as patients commit to taking proper care of their smile year after year.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

When a cavity forms and leaves a hole in the enamel layer, we can fix the problem with the help of a tooth-colored filling. Instead of turning to traditional amalgam that can leave an unsightly appearance, our fillings consist of tooth-colored composite resin that is made to blend in with an existing smile. The flexible solution also reduces the need to alter more of the tooth structure so that individuals can keep more of their natural teeth over time.

Dental Bridges

When combining two dental crowns with artificial teeth (pontics), a dental bridge is created and used to fill in the gaps left behind by multiple missing teeth. Those who require a dental bridge must have healthy abutment teeth on either side of the gap, as these structures will help to anchor the restoration in place for up to a decade with optimal care and maintenance.

Full dentures

When a patient is missing an entire row of teeth, a complete denture can be crafted to replicate their smile and allow for improved oral function. If only a few teeth are missing along an arch, a partial denture can be used to fill in the gaps so that smiling, eating, and speaking are no longer an issue. Dentures, no matter the type, are commonly crafted using a gum-colored base and artificial teeth, with partials consisting of a metal framework, and full dentures staying in place with the help of natural suction and denture adhesive.

Dental Implants

While dentures and dental bridges offer patients the chance to live life with a fully restored smile, they cannot provide the same level of stability and longevity as dental implants. Their placement within the jawbone allows them to last 30+ years or more, and they can support crowns, bridges, or dentures, depending on the number of teeth a person needs to have replaced.
