Dental crowns, which are also referred to as “caps,” can restore strength and functionality to badly damaged and decayed teeth. Crowns can be made from various types of material, such as metal, ceramic, or resin. For the most natural appearance, crowns can also be made from porcelain. Dr. Udoff will first remove any decay from the tooth. Next, a custom-fabricated crown is placed over the tooth, completely encasing it. The crown is affixed in place using bonding techniques, and Dr. Udoff will make sure it looks and feels to your liking. Immediately after the procedure, your smile will appear strong, and complete again.
Dental bridges are recommended for patients with up to three consecutive missing teeth. The bridge consists of two dental crowns attached to artificial teeth. The crowns are secured to the existing teeth, while the prosthetic teeth fill the open space. The result is a fully replenishes smile. With proper upkeep, dental bridges can last 10 years or more. Patients can eat, speak, and smile with renewed confidence. The apparatus can also help to prevent additional oral health issues, such as bone loss and periodontal disease.
Dr. Udoff is fully committed to providing mercury-free holistic dentistry. He removes the amalgam filling in large chucks to minimize vapor and conservatively eliminates any decay. He restores the tooth’s structure and function with tooth-colored, composite resin filling (bonding). This biocompatible material is flexible, strong, and highly durable. The result is very natural and very inconspicuous.
Full-mouth reconstruction is the process of revitalizing the smile and symmetry of the face through joint stabilization, restorative, and/or orthodontic treatments. Dr. Udoff will co-discover with the patient to first help them decide their own personal needs and wants. Once there’s a shared goal in mind, Dr. Udoff and the patient will sit down for a preview and consultation. Our goal is to completely restore the strength, functionally, and beauty of the smile. Dr. Udoff will carefully examine the condition of your mouth and then put together a functional dentistry treatment plan to achieve optimal oral health. Full-mouth reconstruction is recommended for patients with extensive dental needs that may need to be addressed over an extended period of time.
