When a tooth becomes damaged, or one develops a cavity or an infection, then care is needed to avoid discomfort and the risk of tooth loss. Our team can provide this with restorative dentistry. Our Albany, NY dental office discusses how we can repair and restore your smile with lifelike fillings, crowns, and more!

Dental Fillings

We place fillings to treat cavities, and the procedure only takes one visit to complete! We simply numb your tooth so you are comfortable as we remove decay and clean the tooth. We then prepare and place the filling material, curing it under a light as we sculpt and mold the restoration. The last step is to polish the tooth. The entire process takes one sitting, and the material we use is metal-free and safe for all ages. We shade it to blend with your smile and the same material is even used in our dental bonding procedures to mask common cosmetic imperfections.

Custom Crowns

A dental crown fits over the entirety of a tooth’s visible portion, which means we can address an array of issues, from cavities and infection, to damaged teeth and misshapen structures. We can even aid in tooth replacement, as crowns can secure a bridge in place or even restore a single tooth dental implant. When possible, we use materials like porcelain, which can handle daily bite forces but also offer a lifelike appearance.

Root Canal Therapy

When a tooth is infected, this could mean a missing tooth unless the issue is addressed! Our team can use a root canal procedure to gently remove the infected tissues from the tooth. We then clean the interior of the tooth and add a unique filling material, before we cap the tooth with a crown. The procedure can be done in one visit, and we have local numbing agents and sedation to ensure you are comfortable throughout the procedure. This halts the discomfort of an infection immediately, and we take care to ensure your results look natural.

Tooth Extraction

When a tooth is severely damaged or decayed, or if you have wisdom teeth soon to erupt, we could use tooth extraction to remove them and protect the overall health and stability of your smile! If you have any questions about our approach to restorative dentistry, then contact our team today to learn more. We look forward to helping you improve your smile!
