If you’ve ever had a tooth restored in the past, you may remember it was a bit of a process that required multiple appointments and temporaries. Unfortunately, this is still the case in many dental offices today. But not at DeFelice Dentistry! We’ve invested in a high-tech E4D milling machine that allows us to digitally design, create, and place many restorations in a single visit! As a holistic dental practice, we carefully consider and test the biocompatibility of the materials we use in your mouth to ensure they work well with your unique body chemistry for the healthiest, longest lasting result.
If you’re looking for a conservative tooth restoration, schedule a consultation today to see if we can restore your smile with an inlay or onlay. With same day E4D technology, we can complete the process in a single appointment!
If you’re missing a single tooth or multiple teeth, a beautiful porcelain bridge can restore the balance to your smile. Bridges usually consist of one or more fabricated teeth. Traditionally, bridges are anchored to the surrounding teeth on either side with crowns. This option requires removal of healthy tooth structure to secure the crowns. If you are not a candidate for or cannot afford dental implants, this may be the best option for you.
If you are a candidate for dental implants, we can avoid the need for anchoring crowns by anchoring the bridge directly into the jawbone with dental implants. If you’re only missing one tooth and are a candidate for dental implants, we can avoid the need for a bridge altogether with a single dental implant and a full crown on top.
Bridges can help preserve your alignment, bite, and TMJ when teeth have gone missing while allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods comfortably again, and to speak and smile with confidence! We have many tooth replacement options to fit your individual needs and budget. Contact us at DeFelice Dentistry today to schedule a consultation and find out which option is best for you.
If you’re missing most or all of your natural teeth or living with old dentures that are getting in the way of your life, we would love to help you with our modern denture options. Thankfully, today’s dentures are a far cry from those of your grandparents. We have many options available to suit your individual needs and budget. We use materials that will be the most biocompatible with your unique body chemistry to ensure they are the healthiest, longest lasting option for you. Most dentures are typically made from a combination of ceramic and acrylic to mimic natural teeth in form and function.
