  • Dental bridge Brookline dentistOak Brook dentists Drs. D’Alise and Adatia are the people to trust when you need Restorative Dentistry.  But what exactly does Restorative Dentistry entail?  Beyond your regular cleanings and daily oral regimen, do you have a need to repair your teeth due to an accident or health issue?  The goal is to restore your smile back to the way it was.  There are a variety of ways to do that.  Knowing what dental procedure is best for you depends on the situation as well as your dental treatment plan.

    The good news is that your Oak Brook dentists are skilled with the experience and knowledge to guide you through your treatment options.  The result is a well thought out plan that makes you confident your teeth are in the right hands.  So, what are some of the treatment options you might hear about in our office?


    A small gap between your teeth or a tooth that is chipped may have you hiding your brilliant smile from time to time.  Bonding is a procedure that uses a resin matched to your existing enamel color.  The resin is permanently adhered to your teeth by a special light which cures the material in place, filling in the gap or chip.  The procedure is fairly simply.  Maintenance consists of following your normal daily cleaning routine.


    A dental bridge is an option for patients who are missing one or more teeth and need a permanent solution.  A bridge is a made to fill in the gap between healthy teeth and restore your smile.  The benefits of a bridge are quite extensive.  Missing teeth often create bite problems, jaw issues, bone damage to good teeth and gum issues.  A bridge prevents these issues and gives you back the smile you deserve.


    A crown is recommended if a tooth has a large crack or has worn down from teeth grinding.  Crowns are also used over implants or with bridge work.  With bridges, a crown creates a strong anchor which will support the bridge.  The crown fits over an existing tooth and is cemented in place.  The result is a dazzling smile.


    Our Oak Brook dentists love helping our patients create the new smile they deserve.  Their approach is a consultation to determine the best treatment plan for you.  Every option is reviewed so you understand the procedure and oral care required to preserve your teeth.  A restored smile will boost your confidence, and it is a worthy investment in self-improvement.

    Restorative Dentistry can include more than just bridges, crowns, and bonding, however.  Root canals, dental implants, fillings, and dentures are other categories that fit under this umbrella, as well.  Each case is unique as teeth are similar to a fingerprint; everyone’s are different.  At A Center for Dental Implants, our Oak Brook dentists treat each case with the attention and care you deserve.  If you want to improve your smile, fix a problematic area, or simply have questions, then give us a call.  We love making people smile and look forward to bringing out your best side.  Keep up to date with the latest Restorative Dental topics on our Facebook page and we look forward to seeing you soon.
