Restorative Care Services
The enamel on your teeth can withstand bumps, daily grinding, and the effects of beverages, food, and tobacco. That layer of enamel is only as thick as a dime, though; this means that when it breaks or cracks, you’re likely to have problems and pain in your mouth. If this day comes, Dr. Silver offers a variety of state-of-the-art restorative treatments to stop the pain, solve the problem, and rebuild your smile to a level of beauty that fits your lifestyle. Whether you have pain for the first time in your mouth or you have older dental work that just isn’t cutting it anymore, contact NY Center for Minimally Invasive Dentistry today for assistance.
Crown & Bridge
When you have a damaged or missing tooth, restorative care is needed to rebuild what was lost in a strong and satisfying fashion. Dental crowns are designed to fit over the whole surface area of an individual tooth, protecting its original structure and giving it back the function and natural look patients need. Alternatively, bridges can be used in conjunction with crowns to replace one or more missing teeth in a row within the smile, given that there are still healthy teeth on either side of the gap. The crowns will be designed to fit over these teeth, serving as “anchors” that hold the prosthetic in place. Our Midtown practice offer all-ceramic materials for crowns and bridges so that patients can enjoy a treatment solution that’s conservative, biocompatible, and beautiful to look at.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
It’s never too late to regain a whole, strong smile that looks and feels great. A personalized full mouth reconstruction plan can rebuild your oral health from the ground up, helping patients overcome dental damage, tooth loss, and more. You’ll start this process by attending an in-depth consultation with Dr. Silver. After a thorough examination, he’ll discuss your long-term goals and his recommendations with you. The main benefit of creating this plan ahead of time is that it allows our NY team to make the treatment process as streamlined and convenient as possible. Recommended procedures may include mini dental implants, crown and bridge, root canal therapy, or cosmetic work.
Our team will always do everything in our power to help you avoid the need for extraction – however, there are some situations where doing so will preserve your oral health and overall wellbeing. This is most common with wisdom teeth (third molars), which can cause overcrowding, impaction, and infection upon their late arrival in the teenage/young adult years. When performing extractions, Dr. Silver uses ozone therapy, as well as a new minimally invasive extraction technique to facilitate faster recovery in patients for a smoother, more comfortable post-operative experience.
