Beautiful teeth are a sign of good health and well-being. Damaged, discolored, or missing teeth can show problems with health and self-confidence. Prosthodontists, like Dr. Stone, are dentists who have advanced training in tooth reconstruction. They can help get your smile back to looking new.
Tooth reconstruction can involve just a single tooth or an entire set of teeth. Our ability to chew, speak, and swallow allows us to have a high quality of life and to feel self-confident. The goal of tooth reconstruction is to enhance the quality of life for patients.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are like dental fillings. Dental fillings go directly into the tooth. Inlays and onlays bond to the tooth. The result is a healthy tooth that looks and feels like the original tooth.
Dental Veneers and Implants
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that bond directly to a damaged or discolored tooth. They improve the color, shape, or size of a tooth.
Dental Implants replace a single tooth or can replace a whole set of teeth. The implant itself goes into the jaw, which stimulates bone growth around the implant. A crown goes on the implant, creating a tooth that looks so natural that no one can tell.
A crown is a tooth, made from a dental impression, to replace a missing tooth. A bridge is where a prosthetic tooth is connected to two or more crowns, filling in the gap where the tooth was missing. Crowns look like natural teeth and are very long lasting.
Maxillofacial Prosthetics treat problems of the head, neck, and jaw, as well as tooth restoration. When an injury occurs from trauma, birth defects, or illness, a patient may need to work with many health care professionals. You may need a whole team to ensure that the mouth, face, and jaw are all working at their very best.
