Worn down, broken, chipped, and missing teeth all present both cosmetic and restorative dental concerns. Treating these issues are vital to maintaining oral health and can help improve the quality of your life. It can give you back your confidence and restore your oral health.
Restorative Dentistry in Bala Cynwyd, PA
Dr. Weinstock begins every complex dental case with a full and thorough oral health exam. He will work with each patient to build a treatment plan that fits within their budget and lifestyle as well as meets their goals and needs. This plan may include a range of treatments that you will need to bring back your natural smile including:
Dental bridges are used to close the gap left between one or multiple consecutive missing teeth. They may also use dental crowns, or implants for added support. Implant-secured bridges are a very common option because implants provide support that removable bridges do not offer. To learn more about dental bridges, see Dental Bridges.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
Dentures are a great restorative option for patients who have an arch of teeth that they are missing. We offer traditional dentures, which are removable. We also offer implant-secured dentures which offer more stability to chew and speak. To learn more about our denture services, see Dentures and Partial Dentures.
Dental crowns are used to cover tooth damage, wear, or misalignment. They are made of porcelain ceramic caps that can be colored matched to your natural tooth enamel. This material is extremely durable and provided added structure and support to your natural teeth. We also use dental crowns to cap off dental implants. To learn more about dental crowns, see Dental Crowns.
If you are missing teeth, dental implants are the most natural teeth replacement option. Dr. Weinstock offers many types of dental implants. He can replace multiple teeth, a single tooth, or an entire mouth of missing teeth. We offer multiple types of dental implants such as Single Tooth Implants and All-on-Four, depending on each individuals needs. To learn more about these options, see Single Dental Implant and All-On-Four. To learn more about dental implants, see Dental Implants.

The Importance of Restorative Dentistry
Restorative dentistry is vital to maintaining your oral health and helping you live a quality life. If your teeth or any part of your mouth are unable to function normally, this can be detrimental to your overall quality of life. This field allows dentists to help their patients return form, function, and aesthetics back to their smile.
Using a restorative dental treatment can also prevent the progressions of several dental problems. When left untreated, things like dental cavities or cracked teeth can progress into more severe conditions. For example, a cracked tooth can easily allow bacteria to enter into the tooth and cause an infection. This will require root canal therapy or possibly even an extraction. Fixing the crack will prevent any further problems from developing. Untreated dental problems often lead to gum disease, tooth loss, bone loss, damage to surrounding teeth, and more.
Restorative dentistry can also improve the appearance of your smile. By fixing damaged teeth or filling in the gaps in your smile, your dentist can create a smile that will boost your self-esteem. This will benefit your personal life as well as your professional life. Your smile is often the first thing people notice about you so it is important to fix it with restorative dentistry as soon as you can.
