Restorative dentistry is a branch of dentistry that focuses on repairing and restoring teeth to their natural state. This includes dental crowns, bridges, dentures, prosthodontics, and other treatments that help improve the health of your teeth.
Dr. Nechama Brand and Dr. Abraham Stein provide restorative dental solutions to improve the function and form of your bite. We can also enhance the appearance of your smile with these treatments. Restorative dentistry not only includes treatments for repairing damaged teeth or replacing missing teeth, but also treatments for oral diseases such as gum disease.
Restorative Dental Services at our Dental Office
The following are our restorative dental treatments and procedures that we can provide to you in our Millennium Park, Chicago dental office. Learn about each one and feel free to give us a call at 312-586-8596 if you have any questions.
A dental bridge is a restoration that we build using a series of prosthetic teeth linked together. An anchor on either side of a missing tooth gap supports the bridge. Dental bridges help support your overall teeth and bite structure, prevent shifting and overcrowding of teeth, and even helps maintain the shape of your face. Our dental bridges give our patients the ability to bite and chew evenly as well. When our dentists secure bridges using dental implants, they create a more permanent and stable restoration. To learn more about our dental bridges, see Dental bridge.
Our dentists can protect and restore your damaged or discolored teeth using a versatile dental crown. At our dental office, we craft custom crowns for a variety of purposes. We can provide them to protect a tooth post-root canal treatment, repair a cracked or damaged tooth, and to cap off dental implants.
Our dental crowns consist of porcelain material that reflects light for a more natural look. During crown treatment, we prepare the tooth receiving the crown by removing any damaged or decayed structure. To learn more about our high-quality cosmetic crowns, see Dental crown.
Dentures and Partials
The full and partial dentures that we provide can replace multiple missing teeth and even whole rows of lost teeth! By rebuilding the tooth structure with dentures, we help improve the function of your bite, support bone retention, and prevent gum recession. We recommend implant-supported dentures to our patients as this offers a more stable and permanent restoration. To learn more about our denture services, see Dentures and partials.
Gum Disease Treatment
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, begins as gum inflammation (gingivitis). It can quickly develop into serious problems, including loose teeth and tooth decay. We offer a deep cleanings, scaling and root planing, laser dentistry, and non-invasive treatments to remove infection. We also work to help reattach teeth to the gums and can provide restorative care if you lose your teeth to severe gum disease. To learn more about our treatments for gum disease, see Periodontal disease treatment.
The goal of prosthodontics is essentially the same as restorative dentistry. This field focuses on restoring and replacing teeth. It includes techniques like crowns, bridges, dentures, implants, and orthodontics, which are all ways of optimizing your bite. Treatment depends on the individual situation and can involve close collaboration between other dentists, specialists, and laboratory technicians.
Prosthodontics plays an important role in maintaining good dental health, whether for cosmetic or functional purposes. As an experienced prosthodontist, Dr. Stein works with patients to create a new smile that is stable, healthy, and aesthetically pleasing. Our dentists will restore beauty and function using advanced treatment options and digital technology for a predictable result. To learn about our prosthodontics procedures, see Prosthodontics.
If you suffer from frequent jaw or facial pain, you may have a temporomandibular joint disorder. The temporomandibular joint connects the jawbone to the skull, and pain can arise in the jaw joint and facial muscles due to injuries. Some other signs of TMJ, also known as TMD, include difficulty chewing, teeth grinding, or teeth clenching. We offer treatments for mild cases of TMD. To learn about how we can help you relieve TMJ pain, see TMJ treatment.
In addition to these treatments, we also offer non-surgical options such as dental bonding, tooth extractions, and dental veneers. We feel honored to be a part of our patients’ dental health journeys and help them achieve the restored smiles they always dream of having. With our experience, dedication and the latest in dental methods, we can help our patients enjoy a beautiful, healthy, and long-lasting smile for years to come.
Do You Suffer from Dental Anxiety?
Our Chicago dentist office offers complete care to fully restore your smile. If dental anxiety or fear of the dentist is the reason for your dental issues, we can provide sedation dentistry to help you get the dental care that you need. Avoiding the dentist due to fear and anxiety can lead to many issues, including missing teeth and severely damaged teeth and gums.
Talk to us about your fears of the dentist at your next dental consultation! We can include dental sedation methods as part of your treatment plan for your comfort. To learn about your dental sedation options for your next visit, see Sedation dentistry.
