Restorative Dentistry

Every day wear and tear, aging, accidents and unchecked periodontal disease can lead to cracked, broken, or missing teeth…all of which can lead to further problems if not corrected. With today’s materials and advanced techniques, Dr. Schechter can keep you smiling for years to come.

Our Restorative Services Include:

Crowns are placed over the entire tooth, restoring it to its normal shape and size. A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance. It can cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth left. These restorations are used to correct severe decay or misalignment as well as teeth that have undergone root canal therapy. Crowns are fabricated in a laboratory to provide a stable bite and enhance esthetics.

If you're missing one or more teeth, you may notice a difference in chewing and speaking. Bridges help maintain the shape of your face, as well as alleviating the stress in your bite. Sometimes called a fixed partial denture, a bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, looks great, and literally bridges the gap, spanning the site of missing teeth. These restorations are generally made of porcelain and are bonded onto surrounding teeth for support.

Dental implants, used to replace missing teeth, are fixtures that are inserted into the mouth underlying bone to serve as the base for an artificial tooth. A natural looking crown is connected to the top of the implant to provide a predictable way to create an attractive smile.

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and adjacent tissues. It is made of acrylic resin, sometimes in combination with various metals. Complete dentures replace all the teeth, while a partial denture fills in the spaces created by missing teeth and prevents other teeth from changing position. A denture improves chewing ability and speech, and provides support for facial muscles. It will greatly enhance the facial appearance and smile.
