Dental Implants Syosset NY

A dental implant is one of the most permanent forms of restorative dentistry and can be used to restore a single tooth or several teeth. Dental implants involve the placement of a surgical grade titanium post directly into your jawbone by one of the doctor’s trusted specialists. As the bone bonds to the post, it forms a secure foundation for the attachment of a crown or a prosthetic tooth that is custom created for you. Dental implants are sometimes used instead of bridges to maintain the integrity of the teeth on either side of the gap. Consider dental implants in Syosset NY with Berry Hill Dentistry.

Dental Crowns

Your teeth undergo a tremendous amount of wear and tear during your lifetime. Teeth may show this wear in a variety of ways, including discoloration, chipping, and cracking. Crowns restore your teeth and your smile – making them brilliant once again. Porcelain crowns can be made out of porcelain pressed to metal (or are porcelain throughout) and can be shaded to match your other teeth. Crowns made of precious metal are also an option. 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. Cottone or Dr. Schmitz if crowns could be right for you.

Teeth in an Hour

“Teeth in an hour” are made possible by a technology called CEREC™. This technological system allows for the fabrication of all-ceramic tooth restorations in a single visit. Many restorations require several visits to the dentist, but with the CEREC™ system, a natural-looking restoration that has many of the properties of natural teeth, can be custom created just for you, in less time, ensuring that you enjoy a more comfortable dental experience.

Inlays/Onlays

Sometimes removing tooth decay effectively requires the removal of a portion of your tooth. The removed portion is replaced with a porcelain inlay or onlay. Dr. Cottone and Dr. Schmitz customize an inlay or onlay to fill the space left behind when the 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.
