Rebuilding Your Dental Health in Bronxville, NY
When a tooth is structurally worn down or lost, a prosthetic restoration is used to rebuild or replace it, respectively. Our dentist, Dr. John A. Bobinski, DDS, provides dental restorations in Bronxville, Tuckahoe, Yonkers, and all surrounding communities.
Traditionally, fillings and crowns are made of metal because of amalgam and gold’s high durability. However, growing concerns about the healthiness of amalgam fillings have made it all the more critical to provide alternatives to metallic restorations.
Our Bronxville dental practice offers metal-free restorations, from fillings to dentures. Not only do we avoid placing amalgam fillings but we will remove them from teeth and replace them with a composite filling. We help you recover from dental health problems without relying on materials that could cause more harm than good.
We offer crowns made of porcelain and zirconia, which are both durable and lifelike. In either case, your tooth has its structure rebuilt while looking as natural as possible.
Porcelain crowns can also be designed to rest on top of single dental implants, which are titanium posts that serve as artificial tooth roots. If you have only one missing tooth, an implant-supported porcelain crown is an effective way to replace it without altering the dental structure.
Porcelain bridges replace one or more missing natural teeth by suspending new ceramic ones at the site of tooth loss. These prosthetics are able to stay stable because they are connected to porcelain crowns, which are added to the natural teeth neighboring the gap in the smile. These serve as effective nonsurgical replacements for a small number of missing teeth. Supporting them with dental implants increases the number of teeth they can replace significantly.
Traditional full dentures are used to replace the entire smile, and partial dentures are a nonsurgical treatment to replace sizeable portions of the lost smile. These acrylic devices are secured either by the natural suction of the roof and floor of the mouth (full dentures) or by built-in clasps that wrap around the remaining natural teeth (partials). With the exception of the clasps built into a partial denture, these prosthetics are made of just acrylic and remain metal-free for your best health.
Additionally, full dentures are able to be used in conjunction with dental implants. Dentures supported by implants have a built-in metal structure that attaches to the posts, locking the removable denture in place until it is ready to be removed.
