Individuals who are missing teeth or have worn teeth should never feel like they are being punished by their dental treatments. Yet some patients have been made to deal with ill-fitting dentures or less than natural-looking restorations. Our Schenectady dentist will ensure that your dental restoration is both comfortable and aesthetically ideal. Replacement teeth can work with you and your mouth so that you are happy with the results. This week’s blog post details a few restorative treatments available, with an emphasis on their natural appearance once they are in your mouth.

Natural Teeth Replacements with our Schenectady Dentist

Listed below are the dental restorations available from Dr. Scotto. No matter your case, we will employ a collection of these restorations and other dental services to render your smile whole and beautiful.

  • Dental implants – While most dental restorations deal with creating new tooth structure above the gum line, dental implants delve below to build new tooth roots. Implants render other restorations more stable and strong than if they were unsupported. Implants also prevent bone resorption to preserve bone mass and facial structure. With dental implants, even full sets of dentures appear to be permanently connected to your gums and look like natural teeth.
  • Dentures - Modern dentures are carefully, painstakingly crafted to fit you like a glove and appear to be natural. Each tooth in a set of dentures will be individually created, shaped, and shaded to lend it an organic look.
  • Dental Bridges - Bridges consist of crowns on either side of a false tooth. They span gaps left by missing teeth to replace those teeth by relying on neighboring structures. Dental bridges built from porcelain crowns or porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns are tooth-colored and inconspicuous.
  • Dental Crowns - Dental crowns (tooth caps) paired with dental implants can replace entire missing teeth. Porcelain crowns are similar in appearance to natural enamel, making them indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

Do you struggle to share your smile with the world? Cosmetic concerns can prevent people from being completely themselves, hiding their teeth and even limiting their social interactions. We want you to be comfortable being yourself. Our Schenectady dentist will work with you until your smile is beautifully, naturally whole and something that brings you pride. One of our greatest aids in our battle against tooth wear and tear is the dental crown. This week, we'll discuss the wide variety of tasks crowns can take on and the ways they perfect a smile.

Dental Crowns' Capabilities

Crowns are similar to veneers, but add more tooth structure and greater security. Often called "tooth caps," crowns surround remaining natural tooth structure and attach new tooth material. This can hide problematic stains, repair teeth missing structure from decay or damage, and change a smile however you would like. Crowns' versatile nature allows them to accomplish so many dental changes:

  • Whiter teeth
  • Straighter teeth
  • A symmetrical smile
  • Reduced tooth sensitivity
  • Stronger teeth
  • Replacements for missing teeth

Dental crowns come in several materials, the most cosmetic being porcelain. Porcelain crowns may be fabricated in any shape and color, and will blend with your natural teeth to form a great smile. Dental crowns are often used in combination with other cosmetic dental restorations to complete a smile makeover.

The Dental Crown Procedure with our Schenectady Dentist

Receiving dental crowns doesn't need to be complicated. The procedure typically spans two appointments. At the first, our Schenectady dentist will reduce the teeth receiving dental crowns so that the restorations will fit. We will bond temporary crowns to those teeth to keep your smile whole until your second appointment. At the next appointment, your crowns will be bonded to your teeth and checked for proper fit and look. You will leave the office with a glorious smile!

Life-Changing Dental Implants from our Schenectady Dentist

Are you aware of what dental implants could do for your smile? Dental implants help patients missing teeth regain their former lives, with restored dental stability and the unyielding support of these tooth root replacements. Our Schenectady dentist will place your implants and then work with you until you have beautiful dental restorations in place and are completely satisfied with your new smile. Today's blog post is an in-depth look at this incredible dental restoration.

How do dental implants work?

Dental implants are titanium screws that connect with your jaw bone. Since titanium is a biocompatible material, over time it actually fuses with your bone, creating a support system that will not fail you or your restorations. Dental implants are connected to accompanying restorations by means of an abutment. Once the three parts of the fully restored tooth are in place (implant, abutment, and restoration), your treatment with our Schenectady dentist is complete!

What dental restorations can dental implants support?

Dental implants work with every dental restoration. The general support that implants provide can benefit all the dental restorations our Schenectady dentist offers. You may  use dental implants in conjunction with:

  • Crowns
  • Dental bridges
  • Dentures
  • Partial dentures

The foundation provided by the dental implants will keep these restorations from feeling like anything other than natural tooth structure. This makes an especially profound difference in the case of dentures. Implant-supported dentures will not click or slip, and you will be able to use them for both speaking and chewing (there is less of a need to remove them).

How will dental implants change my life?

Dental implants provide you with replacement teeth that really feel and look natural. They will improve your speaking, chewing, and the look of your jaw and face. Because dental implants provide new root structures, they can keep bone surrounding a missing tooth from disintegrating and preserve your bone structure. Most importantly, dental implants will give you a boost in confidence by returning your smile to a whole and beautiful state.

Don't understimate the difference a solid, full smile makes to your self-esteem and your life. Contact our office today to begin a dental implant discussion.
