Having damaged teeth can affect your confidence. For restorative dentistry in Turnersville, NJ, you can count on Dr. Joseph Natoli and Dr. Vincent Scaringi of Natoli Dental to give you back a smile you will love.
Restorative dentistry offers a variety of different procedures to correct things that make you cringe when you think about your mouth. Not every procedure is the right one for every kind of damage.
When your teeth aren't white, it can make you reluctant to smile. Natural teeth can be whitened in the dentist's office or under dental supervision at home. If you want quick results, the office is the best option. It is also less likely you will suffer any irritation of your gums if you let the experts do it.
Professional strength hydrogen peroxide is applied to your teeth and in about an hour you are walking out with significantly whiter teeth. If your teeth are discolored due to damage to the tooth, whitening won't work.
Bonding is a process that "bonds" material to your tooth. It can change the color and shape of your tooth. Your tooth enamel is fused with porcelain or resin to create a new surface on your tooth. When you need restorative dentistry in Turnersville, NJ, bonding is particularly good at repairing chipped teeth.
A veneer is a thin covering made of porcelain or resin is placed on the front of your tooth. It is usually not a reversible process, since some enamel needs to be removed to fit it on the front of your tooth. If, however, you have a discolored, chipped, decayed or crooked tooth, this is a simple option to correct the problem.
A crown is a cover placed over a damaged tooth. The natural tooth is filed down, and then the crown is cemented to the tooth. A root canal may be performed before the crown is attached if necessary. This is a good option for a tooth that has a very large filling or the tooth has cracked or broken.
An implant is a titanium screw that is placed in your jaw. It will be the anchor for a crown that fills in an empty spot you have after a tooth has been extracted or fallen out. The crown is matched to your tooth color unless you opt for a metal crown. It becomes a permanent part of your mouth functioning exactly like a natural tooth when it comes to chewing.
