East Brunswick Restorative Dentistry
Many offices are happy to simply repair a chipped, cracked, broken, decayed, or missing tooth. At our office, however, we take the extra time and effort to restore them for our patients. What is the difference? When a tooth is fully restored, the problem itself is not just fixed, but the tooth regains both its original look and function as well, making it look like nothing ever happened to it in the first place. The end result is that you get your complete smile back. Ready to have your teeth restored instead of just repaired? If so, contact us today for an appointment.
Dental Crowns & Bridges
If a tooth has a significant cavity or suffers a large amount of damage, we can bring it back using a dental crown. This a custom-made, tooth-shaped “cap” that simply fits over the top of a natural tooth to restore its form and function at the same time. They can be made of a variety of materials, but our practice prefers to use natural-looking, all-porcelain crowns whenever we can. Plus, we can also place two of them around the space created by a missing tooth to form a bridge and replace it.
Fillings have been used for decades to repair small cavities and slightly damaged teeth, and at our practice, we only use composite resin fillings as opposed to traditional amalgam. This option is just as strong and durable as regular metal fillings, but they can be specially shaded to more closely mimic the look of a natural tooth. Plus, the material forms a much stronger bond with the enamel, enabling your dentist to preserve more of your tooth when filling it, ensuring its longevity.
Full & Partial Dentures
Multiple missing teeth can spell big problems for both your smile’s appearance as well as your oral health, but we can take care of them both thanks to dentures. Modern-day dentures are now much smaller, sleeker, and natural-looking than anything your parents or grandparents might have worn. Partial dentures are designed to replace missing teeth while fitting in seamlessly with the remaining ones, much like a piece in a puzzle, while full dentures can reliably restore an entire arch of missing teeth. In the end, no matter what you need, we will be able to give you a complete set of teeth you will be eager to show off.
Root Canal Therapy
Sometimes, whether due to decay or injury, the sensitive soft tissue located inside a tooth that is known as the “pulp” can become infected, which can cause quite the toothache. To relieve this pain and save your tooth, we can perform root canal therapy to remove this infected tissue. Thanks to modern dental techniques including local anesthesia and sedation, this often feared procedure is now no more “excruciating” than getting a small filling.
When it comes to full-service dentistry, you can rely on the experience and knowledge of Dr. Ruiz. If you need a tooth extraction, removal of wisdom teeth, or even state-of-the-art dental implants, we can complete these options and others all in-house so you will not have to run around town to different offices to get everything you need. Your comfort is our primary concern, and you will receive compassionate, quality care throughout your entire procedure.
