Restorative Dentistry

Drs. Wooddell and Passaro and their entire team believe that caring for your smile is one of the most important factors in promoting good health.

Your overall dental health and wellness are always the top priority. When it comes to your natural teeth, we are huge advocates of restoring them to allow you to keep using them for as long as possible. When prevention has failed, restoration becomes necessary to allow you to keep the full function of your mouth.

There are several choices available for restorative dentistry and we will help you determine which one will work the best in transforming your smile.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the most impressive dental restoration method available in dentistry today. Implants can be used to replace a single tooth or a whole mouthful of teeth in a permanent way. Not only are dental implants permanent, they allow the patient the full use of their mouth again, allowing for easy eating and speaking. They don’t require special care instructions and can simply be brushed and flossed in the same way that you take care of your natural teeth. If you are missing a tooth or have dentures to replace all of your teeth, inquire today about dental implants.

Crowns

When a tooth is no longer able to support its own structure we can often save it by placing a crown over it. Today, crowns can be made from all kinds of different material to match exactly the look and strength that you are looking for in any particular tooth restoration. We can place crowns made of ceramic, gold, porcelain, metal, zirconia and a variety of amalgamations therein.

Bridges

For many decades the standard tooth replacement method has been dental bridges. Dental bridges allow us to replace anywhere from one to four consecutive missing teeth. We can use natural teeth or dental implants to support a dental bridge. They can be crafted from most of the same materials that are used to create crowns and can be made to look just like your real teeth. The best part is they are permanent and allow you to eat and speak as you would with your natural teeth!

Dentures

Missing teeth can really hamper your way of life. Not being able to eat most food and leaving you unwilling to smile can dampen your mood considerably. Dentures offer a cost-effective solution to full tooth loss. We can fit you for a pair of dentures and have you smiling again in no time.

Bite Therapy

When your bite doesn’t fit together correctly it can cause a lot of problems. Your jaw can end up feeling fatigued and your teeth can even chip and crack as a result. We have a few different therapy options available to bring your jaw back into proper alignment.

Veneers and Bonding

When chips and cracks make your smile appear unsightly there are two great options available to you to make your smile look great again. Veneers and dental bonding allow us to alter your smile in just about any way.
