Dental Crowns & Bridges
When teeth aren’t at their best, a custom-made dental crown and/or bridge can do wonders in bringing back its original shape, strength, and appearance. Dental crowns (also known as “caps”) are designed to cover what remains of a hurting tooth, both preserving the natural structure and rebuilding it. Better yet, Dr. Hegazin can use tooth-colored materials for this type of restoration that are virtually indistinguishable from natural enamel. Alternatively, a bridge can literally “bridge” the gap left by one or more consecutive missing teeth, providing a sturdy and lifelike replacement that will stand the test of time.
According to a report by the U.S. Surgeon General, almost 80% of the population will experience a cavity before reaching adulthood. Thankfully, there is a simple and aesthetically pleasing way to address the damage and help teeth regain their full strength – tooth-colored fillings. This type of modern filling is crafted from composite resin, which comes in a wide variety of lifelike shades that can be precisely matched to a patient’s natural enamel. The final result is a seamless, comfortable, and long-lasting smile repair.
Traditionally, receiving a new dental restoration requires multiple appointments of a patient’s time and plenty of waiting in between. Whenever possible, our team is happy to shorten this process while still maintaining a high level of quality. Our one-visit restorations can be fully completed during a single procedure, which means you can walk in with a hurting or incomplete tooth and leave with an attractive, fully functional result.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
Dentures have been available to replace large numbers of natural teeth for hundreds of years now – thankfully, today’s modern versions are much more lifelike, comfortable, and stable. Dr. Hegazin can create full or partial prosthetics that are highly customized for each patient’s unique mouth. Depending on your preferences and available budget, this new denture can be traditional (meaning that it rests over the gum tissue and is removable) or attached to state-of-the-art dental implants for improved oral health and permanence.
Are you experiencing a significant amount of pain and sensitivity in a specific tooth? This may suggest the presence of an advanced infection within the dental structure. To rescue the natural tooth and avoid the need for an extraction, root canal therapy is a necessity. During this procedure, Dr. Hegazin will access the inner pulp chamber and remove any diseased tissue and bacteria from within, replacing it with a safe and biocompatible substitute. Despite its “scary” reputation, root canal therapy is now practically painless, and the improvements it creates for your natural smile are likely to last a lifetime.
A tooth extraction is never a particularly desired service, but it can become necessary in certain circumstances, such as:
- When a tooth is heavily decayed/injured and cannot be successfully restored
- When advanced periodontal disease is present
- When a lingering “baby” tooth must be removed to make way for an erupting adult tooth
- When orthodontic treatment is necessary and one or more teeth must be removed to make way for the desired movement
- When the third molars (“wisdom” teeth) are impacted, overcrowded, or otherwise negatively affecting the patient’s oral health and general wellbeing
Dr. Hegazin and the rest of our team will prioritize your comfort throughout every stage of the tooth extraction process, providing sedation dentistry as needed to create a safe and relaxing environment. High-quality reconstructive solutions like dental implants are available as needed to rebuild teeth in aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting ways.
