Composite and Ceramic Restorations
Our dentist can use mercury-free, tooth-colored composite material to fill cavities and repair injured teeth. Composite restorations made of resin, and ceramic or porcelain restorations, can be bonded directly to your teeth and provide a more comfortable, natural-looking alternative to metal dental work. If you currently have metal fillings, there are many aesthetic and functional benefits to replacing them with tooth-colored fillings, including enhanced tooth strength and a chemical bond between the tooth and the restoration.
At Restorative and Implant Dentistry of Bayside, we offer one of the most advanced and effective in-office teeth whitening treatments. This revolutionary system can produce dramatic results in a single, one-hour office visit. Teeth whitening begins with the application of a powerful whitening gel onto your teeth. Over the course of four cycles, the gel is removed and reapplied. The procedure is completed with a fluoride treatment to strengthen teeth and calm any tooth sensitivity. Custom fitted bleaching trays for touch-ups are also provided after completion of the therapy. With proper care and touch-up treatments, results can last for years.
Porcelain veneers are a versatile and conservative option for improving the appearance of your teeth and entire smile. These thin customized shells are crafted from translucent ceramic material and placed over the front surface of the tooth to change its shape, color, size, and alignment for a more aesthetically appealing smile. Long-lasting, stain-resistant, and durable, porcelain veneers can keep your smile looking great for decades with proper care.
Crown lengthening is a surgical procedure that exposes more of the tooth body to provide adequate support for a filling or restoration, or to enhance the appearance of a smile. The procedure can involve the removal of gum tissue, bone tissue, or both to reveal an optimal amount of tooth structure.
