Few things are more upsetting than damaged teeth. While there are plenty of preventative maintenance habits that are instrumental in protecting and keeping teeth healthy, the truth is it’s not uncommon for injury or decay to impact your perfect smile. Fortunately, in Dr. Cesare’s office, you can find the type of restorative dentistry you need for ideal dental health and to restore your great smile.
Accident or injury is a common cause of chipped or cracked teeth. Depending on the extent of the damage, dental bonding is an ideal solution. Not only does dental bonding repair the crack or chip, it also serves to enhance the appearance of the previously damaged tooth.
Porcelain veneers are another option for correcting damaged teeth and brightening your smile. Extremely thin wafers are placed over the teeth. While veneers are expensive, they correct the damage, brighten your smile, and can be used to completely change the shape of the teeth if such cosmetic measures are necessary.

Composite Dental Fillings
Even more common than chipped and cracked teeth are cavities. Even the most cautious person can find some decay has occurred, despite their best attempts otherwise. For minor cavities, Dr. Cesare and her staff will clean the site of any decay and use composite dental fillings, mixed to match the color of the tooth. The process stops the tooth from further decay and saves you from the possibility of C the tooth.
Larger cavities are treated much the same way with the exception that instead of composite fillings, porcelain inlays and onlays are used to fill the cleaned area. Inlays act as filling material, while onlays are used to protect and recreate the tooth’s cusps when necessary.
This is just the beginning of what restorative dentistry with Dr. Cesare can do for you. Dental crowns are available to repair broken teeth, while missing teeth are replaced with dental bridges, implants, or traditional dentures.
