Undoing Cavity Damage
From decayed teeth damaged by cavities to darkened molars filled with metal or amalgam, you deserve a smile that’s more natural and feels beautiful. Dr. Straub has been practicing Port Washington restorative dentistry for decades, particularly replacing harmful metal fillings and introducing tooth-colored composite restorations that blend with your natural tooth color and shape. We can carefully craft a composite filling for you that’s radiant, reflecting the translucence of your remaining teeth. There’s no reason to worry about wear and tear or future dental decay. Forget what you think you know about fillings, and learn about your treatment options.
Restore Force to Your Bite
When teeth are severely damaged or decayed, it might not be best to use a filling as the best restorative solution. In some occasions, Dr. Straub might turn to custom made porcelain inlays and onlays, as opposed to a filling. Why? It has to do with the extent of the damage to your tooth or teeth. A porcelain inlay can be crafted for you that fits comfortably inside the cusps of your teeth, while a porcelain onlay fits over or on top of those same cusps. Both onlays and onlays cover a greater surface area compared to composite or tooth-colored fillings.
The Real Root Canal Truth
You can’t have a conversation about Port Washington restorative dentistry without endodontics or root canals coming up. So many patients have a negative picture in their mind of a painful root canal, but the truth is it’s truly a tooth-saving treatment that any reliable dentist knows is best for you and your smile. Thanks to advancements in technology, modern root canal therapy is pain-free and completed with ease. Talk to Dr. Straub about your root canal options and learn about how it can improve your oral health.
Dentures & Partials
For Comfort and Confidence
A denture replaces teeth along your upper and lower jaw or entire mouth. While a partial fills in the space formed by up to three missing teeth. Both dentures and partials are removable, which can allow for easy cleaning. When you come to see Dr. Straub for a consultation, we can explain how the dentures and process can work for you. Our Port Washington restorative dentistry team is committed to compassionate care, and assisting in any way we can.
The Benefits and Beauty of Oral Surgery
While oral surgery is generally one of the last options your cosmetic dentist will rely on to keep your smile healthy, there are times when it’s beneficial, especially when it comes to replacing missing teeth with dental implants. Oral surgery allows us to address underlying problems and issues, not just your symptoms. It can also give you a more positive self-image, self-confidence, and self-esteem. Your first step in getting the right kind of treatment is to talk to us about your oral surgery options.
