If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants can restore the health, function, and appearance of your smile. Dental implants are placed directly in the jawbone, where they act as artificial tooth roots. They can be used to anchor dental crowns, bridges, or dentures. Dr. Robert Rebert, Jr., places and restores traditional and mini dental implants, making his practice a one-stop shop for implant dentistry patients.
Dental crowns cover the entire visible portion of a tooth, providing restorative and cosmetic benefits. Crowns can strengthen and protect a tooth that has been damaged due to injury or decay. When attached to dental implants, they can be used to replace a missing tooth. In addition, crowns can mask tooth discoloration and improve the overall appearance of teeth. Dr. Rebert places beautiful, long-lasting dental crowns made from porcelain and zirconia.
Patients missing a single tooth or several consecutive teeth may be good candidates for a dental bridge. A dental bridge consists of one or more artificial teeth. The bridge can be secured with dental crowns or implants. In the traditional bridge procedure, the bridge is attached to two adjacent dental crowns. The implant-supported bridge treatment involves the placement of dental implants within the jawbone. The bridge can be secured to the implants to hold it firmly in place.
Inlays and onlays are custom made to restore the biting surfaces of the pre-molars and molars. An inlay fits within the indented surface of the tooth; onlays are larger restorations that replace the cusps of the tooth. Dr. Rebert may recommend inlays or onlays if your tooth cannot be sufficiently treated with a dental filling, but does not require a full crown. He will have technicians at a trusted dental lab fabricate your inlay or onlay out of natural-looking, durable materials.
If you have extensive tooth decay, gum disease, failing dental work, missing teeth, or other dental health issues, you may be a good candidate for a full mouth reconstruction. With full mouth reconstruction, we can develop a complete treatment plan to improve the health, function, and appearance of your smile. Prior to treatment, we can create a full wax-up to show you what your smile could look like after treatment. If you undergo dental implant surgery, we can place an interim restoration during the healing period. When the recovery period is complete, we will place your custom restoration.
