Aesthetic Restoration

The Art of Cosmetic Dentistry

Involves methods through which teeth are restored while conserving the maximum amount of the original tooth’s hard tissue. This ensures that the tooth remains alive and looks natural.

 

Aesthetic restorative dentistry includes procedures,  all intended to enhance your existing teeth, replace a cracked or missing tooth, reshape a tooth, and otherwise improve both the function of your teeth as well as your smile.

What we offer

 Our practice is well-known for its expertise in dental aesthetics, smile design, and one-day smile reconstructions.

 

Dr. Iott is a recognized expert in aesthetics and advanced computer dentistry. This is one of the reasons why our office is the training facility for the NYU Advanced Program for International Dentists, focused on advanced post-graduate training in Esthetics, Lasers and Computer Dentistry. 

Inlays

Can be made of porcelain, gold, composite, or ceramic resin. These pieces are bonded to the damaged area of the tooth. An inlay, which is similar to a filling, is used inside the cusp tips of the tooth.​​

Traditionally, gold has been the material of choice for inlays. In recent years, however, porcelain and ceramic have become increasingly popular due to their strength and color, which can match the natural color of your teeth with the utmost accuracy.

Onlays

 An onlay dental restoration is similar to an inlay, but extending out over one or more of the cusps of the tooth. Onlays are indicated in situations where a substantial reconstruction is required. However, a certain amount of tooth structure can be conserved rather than placing a crown.  

Crowns

A crown, also called a 'cap,' is a tooth-like restoration that is placed over a prepared existing tooth to restore the function, contour, appearance and strength of the damaged tooth. Crowns serve to support the tooth when there is no longer sufficient tooth structure left to place a filling. They may also be used to protect the structure of a tooth that is fractured, broken, or has had root canal treatment. There are two types:

 

  • Anterior tooth crowns are restorations used on your front teeth. Esthetics is an important factor in the fabrication of an anterior crown. because of this, they are made to match your existing teeth perfectly, or properly correct un-esthetic situations. 

 

  • Posterior tooth crowns are restorations used on your back teeth. Most of the forces of mastication (chewing) are placed on your back teeth. Because they will be bearing a large portion of this force, posterior crowns need to be constructed of a durable material without compromising esthetics. Also, posterior crowns are important because they need to replicate and preserve your occlusion (natural bite) to prevent any future TMJ problems.

Veneers

Veneers are thin shells of porcelain bonded to the front side of teeth to make a cosmetic improvement in their appearance. Veneers are a quick, safe, and highly durable solution to amend many cosmetic irregularities and create a durable and pleasing new smile.

CEREC

Is an acronym for Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic. CEREC technology creates a long-lasting and very natural looking porcelain restoration in just minutes, rather than the weeks it would take CERECfor a dental lab to do it.
