Oral Health Advisory: Tooth Restorations

Are you familiar with all the different types of respirations that can be used to reinvigorate your smile? If for any reason you have suffered dental damage or are looking to strengthen your teeth and gums, visit your dentist for a tooth restoration. However, it is important to understand that several products work in many different ways, so you’ll need to consult with your dentist to determine which one is best for you.

It’s often important to determine which form of restoration you need. If for any reason you have suffered dental damage that is severe, it may require an extraction. First, consult with your dentist to determine if a dental crown can be used to save the tooth. Dental crowns cap and conceal a tooth on all sides to provide additional support as needed.

If damage to a tooth is minor and consists of a hole or another similar form of decay, a dental filling may be required. However, if other situations arise, such as discolorations or stains that you wish to conceal, dental veneers and teeth whitening treatments are highly effective options. As a general rule of thumb, you should visit your dentist routinely for check-ups and examinations.

If you would like to set up an appointment with Drs. Lembo and Jaffin at our dentist office in Haledon, New Jersey for a tooth restoration exam, please call us at 973-790-4494. Our team at Belmont Dental Associates looks forward to making your smile safe.
