Our cosmetic dentist, Thomas J. Strub, DDS, offers a broad range of restorative dentistry procedures to replace missing teeth and fully repair dental damage and decay. The goal of these treatments is to restore form, health, and function to the teeth and integral oral structures. At our practice, every treatment plan is customized to meet the specific needs of each patient in order to maximize the quality of their experience and results. We invite you to learn more about each of the restorative options we offer to rebuild healthy, beautiful smiles.
Missing Tooth Replacement
It is vital to your dental health and the longevity of your smile to replace missing teeth soon after they are lost. Missing teeth affect not only your appearance, but they can negatively impact your bite, surrounding teeth, and jawbone density as well. We offer several options for replacing missing teeth with functional, natural-looking results.
Together with the help of an implant specialist, Dr. Strub provides dental implants as an effective, natural-looking tooth replacement option. Dental implants are often an ideal choice for restoring missing teeth, as the implanted titanium posts and porcelain crowns closely mimic the stability, functionality, and appearance of natural teeth.
Porcelain Dental Bridges
Porcelain dental bridges offer a fixed solution for replacing one tooth, or multiple missing teeth. Bridges are fused to dental crowns, which are cemented onto adjacent teeth to provide stability and support. Results achieved with dental bridges are comfortable and natural-looking.
Removable Partial Dentures
Partial dentures are a removable option for replacing several missing teeth on both sides of the mouth. Held in place by clasps and custom-formed plastic bases, the replacement teeth adequately fill gaps left by missing teeth, creating the appearance of a full smile. They also provide added function to the bite, facilitating more natural chewing and speaking.
Periodontal (Gum and Bone) Treatments
Healthy gums are vital to your overall dental wellness. Gum disease can cause serious complications with your oral health and lead to tooth loss in severe cases. Dr. Strub provides periodontal treatment of diseased gums and affected bone tissue to help eliminate infection, stop bone recession, and protect your smile.
