Restorative dentistry refers to the treatments used to help restore function, strength, and appearance to a smile that has been affected by trauma, decay, or disease. We offer several services to help you achieve a new-and-improved grin.
A dental implant is a prosthetic tooth that mimics the structure of a real tooth. It consists of a metal post that is surgically inserted into the gums, where the root of the tooth used to be. The post then fuses to the jawbone, creating a root-like foundation for for the prosthetic tooth. Then, the implant is restored with a crown in order to help it look and feel like a natural tooth.
Dental implants are great options for restoring your smile and preventing the dental health risks of having a missing tooth. Patients must be healthy and have sufficient jawbone in order to be good candidates for dental implants. Dr. Minnillo will work with you to determine if dental implants are right for you!
Are misaligned teeth making you feel self-conscious? Invisalign® treatment is a modern approach to traditional teeth straightening. No more need for expensive and unattractive metal braces and wiring!
With the comfort and ease of Invisalign trays, you can straighten your teeth with the help of 3D computer imaging. We customize your plastic, Invisalign trays to your unique smile so you can wear them comfortably and unnoticeably over your teeth. We’ll work closely with you to make sure you’re receiving the proper adjustments every couple of weeks.
Invisalign patients usually wear their aligning trays in less time than those who wear traditional orthodontic braces; however, treatment varies on an individual basis. Because Invisalign trays are removable, you can remove them when it’s time to eat, brush, floss, or smile in photographs!
