Composite fillings are ideal for front teeth since they’re made of a tooth-colored resin that looks and feels completely natural. Amalgam fillings are typically used to fill decayed rear teeth, as the metal material is very durable and holds up well to the heavier chewing forces experienced by the molars and premolars.
We offer custom-built porcelain dental crowns that are crafted in our in-house dental lab. Since we build crowns in-house, we can treat your damaged tooth more quickly compared to practices that rely on outside labs, so come to Goldstein Garber & Salama today to explore your options in further detail.
Dental bridges use two dental crowns to suspend a false tooth and fill gaps in your smile caused by missing teeth. With a custom-fitted bridge, you can chew and bite normally, avoid complications like teeth shifting, and feel more confident about your appearance.
Laughing gas sedation uses a nose mask to deliver a stream of nitrous oxide into your airway. This gas will help you relax and feel more comfortable, and also reduces feelings of pain and discomfort.
Oral conscious and IV sedation use the same types of sedative drugs, but oral conscious sedation is delivered via a pill, while IV sedation uses an IV. Both methods result in a deeper level of sedation, and you’ll be likely to forget most of what happens during your treatment, or even fall asleep during your procedure.
General anesthesia is the deepest level of sedation. You will be completely unconscious, and will not experience any pain or discomfort during your procedure. It’s usually used only for major dental surgeries.
Full dentures are ideal for patients who have lost all or most of their natural teeth. All of your natural teeth must be removed before you can have full dentures built, however, so they are not a good option if you still have some healthy teeth.
Instead, partial dentures may be a good alternative. Partial dentures use a plastic and metal framework with multiple false teeth, which rest in the gaps in your smile. They attach to your healthy teeth and are tightly secured in place to restore your smile.
