If you are missing teeth, dental implants are the best replacement option. Implants are titanium posts surgically placed into the jawbone to replace lost tooth roots. A crown or other dental restoration can be secured to the implant, creating a solution that looks and functions like a natural tooth. Patients with traditional dentures can experience dramatically improved support with dental implants.
Modern dentures can be crafted to look absolutely natural, providing a precise and effective complement to a patient’s facial structure for comfort, functionality, and aesthetics. Dr. Levy has an exceptional eye for artistry and precision when it comes to designing either full or partial dentures, and he can provide you with dentures that are as natural-looking as real teeth.
In the past, dental filings were generally a mix of metals, or an amalgam, which looked nearly black when set against white teeth. Modern solutions look much better. If you are in need of cavity treatment, we can apply a tooth-colored filling that looks completely natural. Today’s composite fillings are tinted to match the tooth, so no one will be able to tell you have a filling.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped restorations that can be used to strengthen a tooth following treatment for a large cavity, or restore a tooth compromised by physical trauma. They are used to support traditional dental bridges, and can also mask deep intrinsic tooth discoloration. If you are missing a tooth, a crown can restore a dental implant. Dr. Levy uses the latest technology to ensure that your dental crown looks natural and blends seamlessly with surrounding teeth.
If you are missing multiple teeth, a dental bridge may be a viable solution. This restoration bridges gaps in the smile, restoring function and aesthetics. A traditional bridge is made of one or more artificial teeth, held in place by two supporting crowns. Dental bridges can also restore a dental implant. During a consultation, Dr. Levy will help you determine which solution is best for your needs.
Inlays and Onlays
Dental inlays and onlays are often used when patients have a damaged tooth that requires more than a filling, but a crown would be excessive. An inlay is actually similar to a filling and fits inside the cusp of the molars. An onlay extends beyond the cusps of the tooth. These conservative restorations are designed to achieve a precise fit with your tooth, as well as a natural-looking appearance.
Those who suffer from severe dental decay, damage, or tooth loss may be candidates for a full-mouth reconstruction. This treatment is designed to fully restore the health, function, and appearance of smiles in any state of need. Dr. Levy will identify issues with your teeth, bite, and alignment in order to recommend a treatment plan. Full-mouth reconstruction can yield exceptional results that help you enjoy an improved quality of life.
