Restorative Dentistry in Great Neck

Effectively Restoring Your Teeth, Smile & Overall Oral Health

After you have sustained any type of damage to your teeth, restorative dentistry may be the perfect option to help improve the health and appearance of your teeth and smile. Whether your teeth were damaged due to gum disease, physical trauma, or other causes, it is important to get the problem resolved as quickly as possible. Otherwise, your teeth could become damaged even further, thereby leading to speaking difficulties, eating problems, and a wide variety of health issues.

There are numerous options that Dr. Derek Zimbardi and Dr. Cristina David are able to provide to you with, depending on your overall health and personal preference. Contact Distinctive Dental Services of New York, P.C. to learn about which restorative treatment option is best for you. Call (516) 207-0897 for effective restorative dentistry in Great Neck.

These restorations may include:

  • Dental crowns
  • Dental implants
  • Porcelain laminates
  • Dental fixed bridges
  • Dental inlays and onlays
  • Dental removable bridges (dentures & partial dentures)

These restorations, in addition to aesthetic restorative materials, may be used to:

  • Restore your smile
  • Improve your speech
  • Reduce your risk of gum disease
  • Restore your ability to bite and chew
  • Prevent remaining teeth from shifting out of position

Dr. Zimbardi and Dr. David will discuss these different treatments with you to help you decide which option is best for your specific situation. We perform all of our restorative services with the highest level of care to help you improve the health and appearance of your smile.

Porcelain Laminates/Veneers

Porcelain laminates are very thin porcelain restorations that overlay the front surface of your tooth. They are used to help give you the smile you have desired for years. They do this by reshaping your tooth, with a porcelain color you have always desired. Porcelain laminates are bonded in place and also help improve the strength of your tooth.

Dental ImplantsDental Implants

Dental implants provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. These implants are comprised of titanium cylinders which are implanted into the jawbone where there are missing teeth. At the end of the cylinders are fake teeth that function as effective replacements, supporting surrounding teeth as well. Implants have the advantage of being made of materials that don’t decay like natural teeth.

It is important for patients to have sufficient, strong bone in the area beneath the missing teeth in order to support the implants. Placement of dental implants is done over a series of appointments over the course of several months.

Dental Inlays & Onlays

Onlays and inlays are fillings which restore decayed or damaged teeth. They are most often used when there is insufficient healthy tissue in the tooth to provide support for a regular filling. Inlays and onlays strengthen the teeth rather than weaken them. They are placed over the course of two visits and are typically made of composite resin or porcelain.

Dental Crowns

Crowns are caps that effectively cover a missing or damaged tooth, restoring your beautiful, full smile. These aesthetically appealing caps are put into place with specialized cement to create the look and function of a natural tooth.

Many different materials can be used to make crowns, including tooth-colored zirconia, porcelain-fused-to-metal, resin, and gold. Each type has its own benefits, and Dr. Zimbardi or Dr. David can help you decide which material is best for you. Crowns are usually placed over the course of two to three office visits. They can be temporary or permanent and usually last between 5 and 15 years, depending on the wear and tear of the crown as well as the patient's oral hygiene habits.

Dental Fixed Bridges

Dental bridges are tooth replacements that are completely natural looking and rely on surrounding teeth for support. They are cemented onto existing teeth and they fill in the gaps caused by missing teeth, reduce stress on the jaw, and help maintain proper facial structure. There are a wide variety of bridge types available to you, depending on your specific situation.

In order for a bridge to be placed, the adjacent teeth must undergo preparation by removing some of the enamel for the crown to be placed over them. Bridges are usually placed over the course of two to three office visits. Most bridges last from 5 to 15 years depending on the patient’s oral hygiene habits and several other factors. They are typically made of esthetic tooth-colored material such as composite resin or porcelain.

Removable Bridges (Dentures & Partial Dentures)

Removable dentures are prosthetic devices intended to assist patients who are missing teeth by improving their speech habits and chewing abilities. In addition, dentures can improve an individual's self-esteem and facial aesthetics. Dentures may be held in place by natural retention with the soft tissue or adhesives. Partial dentures are held in place by different types of clasps that fit around or inside special attachments in teeth or crowns.
