Restorative Dental Care
Welcome to Albany Dental Group where what we do will make you smile.
Our restorative care is far from just cosmetic. It also provides structural strength in addition to aesthetics. Providing support to the teeth is imperative since they are prone to injury, decay, and just wearing out over time or because of grinding teeth. As we age our teeth weaken and in some case we lose them. At Albany Dental Group we want to rebuild your smile with an even stronger support mechanism while giving you a beautiful smile.
There are cascading issues that occur after you lose a tooth if you go untreated for too long. Once a tooth is gone, then the remaining teeth start to move around in your mouth. This starts the domino effect of potentially more tooth loss. Once the mouth starts to compensate for the moving teeth, you may start to encounter TMJ issues. The gaps in between your teeth could lead to gum disease and then decay of teeth in close proximity. Bone density will be impacted as well. Replacing teeth as quickly as possible greatly reduces the chance of additional tooth loss.
Restorative Dental Care includes:
Crowns- Crowns are used for cracked teeth, tooth decay or tooth becomes discolored. Full Porcelain (metal free), Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM), Gold Crown (Full Gold Crown and Gold Inlay. For more information on Crowns, visit us here.
Dental Bridges- A Dental Bridge allows you to replace the lost tooth and do so without requiring surgery. Types of Bridges include Traditional, Cantilever Bridge, Maryland Bridge and Implant Supported Bridge. If you want to learn more about Dental Bridges visit us here.
Root Canal- Involves removing dental pulp from the challenged tooth. Digital X-Rays are used to make sure that the pulp is clean, then the tooth is filled with dental cement and then the crown is placed. To learn more about Root canal, please visit us here.
Dental Inlay- Also known as the partial crown. A Dental Inlay uses the remaining portion of the tooth. The Inlay composite material is then cemented to the prepared tooth. This provides strength to the tooth and will be shaped and trimmed back closer to its natural attributes.
