A lifetime of wear and tear can show itself in many ways including discoloration, chipping, and cracking. Crowns can restore your teeth to their original brilliance. Crowns can be made of porcelain throughout, porcelain pressed to metal, or precious metals. After some tooth preparation, crowns are specially fitted to give you back the look and functionality of your smile. If you have pain when chewing or temperature sensitivity, ask Dr. LoSasso if crowns may be right for you.
Missing teeth can cause your smile to undergo significant changes. A bridge is used to fill in the gap created by a missing tooth or teeth. It is made of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap, with a tooth-like restoration in between. Bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants and are typically made of metals, alloys, or porcelain. Porcelain makes the restoration look like real teeth in shape and color.
Dentures allow you to live a normal life even after you have lost your teeth. Advances in denture techniques and technology allow your removable dentures to fit better than ever. Dentures also support your cheeks and lips to lend a desirable aesthetic appeal. They will make you look younger and healthier. Dr. LoSasso specializes in creating natural-looking dentures, and he will work with you to create your ideal smile. You will select the shade and shape of your teeth, and you will also have a “try-on” appointment before your dentures are finished to make sure they look as natural and feel as comfortable as possible.
- Partial Dentures
You can restore your smile’s radiance with partial dentures that are both comfortable and natural-looking. You will be pleased with how your new partial denture restores the gaps in your smile due to your missing teeth that cannot be corrected by a bridge. Your partial denture will be removable and made from a synthetic material supported by lightweight metal that mimics your gum tissue and teeth to give you a beautiful new smile. The partial denture will preserve your bone structure and the integrity of your existing teeth by preventing them from shifting and tilting in towards the gaps created by your missing teeth.
Sometimes effectively removing tooth decay requires the removal of a portion of your tooth. The removed portion is then replaced with a porcelain inlay or onlay. Dr. LoSasso can customize an inlay or onlay to fill the space left behind when part of your tooth is removed. Traditionally, inlays and onlays were made out of metal, much like traditional filings. Now, porcelain-milled inlays and onlays are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth and provide relief from chewing pain, cavity pain, and tooth degeneration.
You may suffer from headaches, a popping jaw when you open or close your mouth, and pain in your jaw joints and muscles. TMJ, also known as TMD or Temporomandibular Joint Disease, is a condition many people suffer from, but the good news is – it can be treated. Based on the severity of your condition, we can recommend a course of treatment that will help alleviate your pain and make your day-to-day activities more pleasant. Ask Dr. LoSasso today if you might benefit from this specialized treatment.
Your old, silver fillings could be a thing of the past. When the decay has been taken out of the tooth, it is replaced with “filling” material. In the past, amalgam (silver) fillings were placed into the cleaned out portion of the tooth. With advancements in dentistry, you can now have tooth-colored fillings instead of silver fillings. You may even elect to remove your old silver fillings in favor of new, undetectable tooth-colored fillings.
- Tooth Colored Fillings
You can now beautify your smile with natural-looking, tooth-colored fillings. When the decay has been taken out of the tooth, it is replaced with “filling” material. In the past, amalgam (silver) fillings were placed into the cleaned out portion of the tooth, but with advancements in dentistry, you can now have tooth-colored fillings instead of silver fillings. You may even elect to remove your old silver fillings in favor of new, undetectable tooth-colored ones.
- Root Canals
Your comfort and safety is our ultimate goal. Damage to the nerve tissue inside of a tooth sometimes requires a root canal procedure. Despite the tales you may have heard regarding the procedure, most root canals are minimally uncomfortable, especially compared to the pain and discomfort you may be feeling before the procedure. Dr. LoSasso will take advantage of advances in technology and dental techniques that make root canal procedures more effective while taking less time.
