When your teeth are healthy, you feel healthy. Dr. Florio and Dr. Kohner make every effort to preserve as much of your natural tooth as possible in restorative procedures. They use their extensive skills and experience to provide you with restorations that are natural in appearance and performance, blending easily with the surrounding teeth.
Dr. Florio and Dr. Kohner use composite resins to provide you with the best available alternatives. They look natural and provide better protection for your teeth; they eliminate all the shortcomings of the old-fashioned silver fillings. Composite resins seal the teeth more efficiently and insulate against hot and cold.
Bonding & Contouring
Cosmetic bonding and contouring are when a tooth-colored material is applied layer by layer. Dr. Florio and Dr. Kohner layer the material to the surface of the tooth which covers discoloration, chips, breaks, and closes gaps between your teeth. Composite bonding is one of the most affordable, conservative, and versatile ways to restore your smile.
Mini Implant Dentures: No Small Wonder!
When people lose permanent teeth due to accident, injury, disease or extraction, dental implants can be a secure, functional replacement option. A total loss of teeth may present some unique problems. A few of the more frequent problems may be:
- Extreme loss of the underlying bone
- Loss of facial tissue support
- Inability to chew food properly
- Pain or dysfunction of the jaws or joints
- Difficulty in adapting psychologically to artificial teeth
- Difficulties in getting artificial teeth to fit or function comfortably
Restorative Dental Implants
When people lose permanent teeth due to accident, injury, disease, or extraction, dental implants can be a secure, functional replacement option. When permanent teeth are lost, dental implants can offer a new lease on life. They are superior to other choices because they are solid, secure, and aesthetic. Used for nearly 35 years, they have a 90-95% proven success rate. In most cases, implants can restore complete functionality. Dental implants keep your jaw strong and youthful looking. They remove the need for diet restrictions that can be caused by dentures. It’s like having a natural smile. After the implant is placed, Dr. Florio works hand-in-hand with your surgeon to create an aesthetically pleasing implant.
If you’ve lost teeth due to accident, injury, or gum disease, we can create a permanent “bridge” to replace the missing teeth. A fixed bridge will prevent teeth from shifting, and stabilize your bite.
