We can help Long Island families maintain great oral health with various reparative treatment options from Scotto-Lavino, D.D.S., P.C.
A survey performed by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research found that 9 out of 10 American adults between the ages of 20 and 64 have cavities. They also found that oral diseases are the most common types of chronic disease in children, and almost 50% of children between the ages of 2 and 11 have at least one cavity in their baby teeth. These statistics show how important it is to seek out regular general dental care and better oral health education, but they also show the need for excellent restorative dentistry. We can fix problems like cavities with restorative dental care that includes fillings and crowns, and we can treat more complicated problems such as tooth loss as well. Our Selden dental office has been providing reliable restorative dental care and great smile results for over 30 years.
Restorative dentistry includes:
Dental Crowns and Fillings
Our Selden dental office wants your restorative dental work to look great; with all the advancements in restorative dentistry materials over the decades, there’s no reason for your results to look unnatural. That’s why we offer tooth-colored composite resin dental fillings and porcelain crowns for fixing damage to your smile. When you develop a cavity, we can provide a natural-looking filling with composite resin. It’s metal free restorative dental options such as these that have really made a big difference in oral health over the years.
Tooth-colored composite resin fillings have replaced silver amalgam fillings as the standard for optimal oral health and attractive restorative dental care. Tooth-colored composite resin doesn’t leave the dark spots on your teeth that silver amalgam fillings do. These dental fillings are sturdy, and they hold their seal more securely than traditional fillings. And composite resin fillings are completely mercury free, setting your mind at ease about your health.
Porcelain crowns also provide beautiful results. When facing a very big cavity or a broken tooth, porcelain crowns are the usual option for repairing the problem. While dental crowns can be made from various materials, including silver and gold, porcelain crowns were developed to give you a more aesthetic option that doesn’t sacrifice your oral health or tooth protection. We offer porcelain crowns whenever possible at our Selden, NY dental office.
