Why Choose Sebastian S. Lavino
for Restorative Dentistry?
- Highly Conservative Restorative Treatments
- State-of-the-Art Dental Techniques and Technology
- Multiple Materials for Making Dental Crowns
Using a dental crown to protect, repair, and strengthen broken or damaged teeth is a well-known dental treatment. What you may not have realized, though, is that there is a wide variety of materials that crowns can be made from. There are the traditional gold crowns, of course, but those who want a more natural-looking solution can ask about porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, and zirconia crowns that can be matched to the shade of real teeth.
Instead of removing healthy tooth structure to place a metal filling, we can fill cavities with tooth-colored composite resin. This material looks like a natural part of the tooth once it has been properly sculpted and shaded. It bonds with the tooth itself, which means it actively strengthens it. A tooth-colored filling that has been properly cared for by way of good oral hygiene and professional maintenance can last for 10 to 15 years or possibly longer.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
When dental problems exist throughout the mouth, it’s not enough to make one or two changes in isolation; we need to have a comprehensive vision of the final result. That means using a specific combination of restorations and tooth replacements depending on what repairs are needed. The full mouth reconstruction will be personalized just for you following a thorough examination of your teeth. Our primary goals will be to restore oral health and function, but of course aesthetics will be considered as well!
