Undergoing restorative dentistry procedures is arguably one of the most challenging aspects of receiving dental care. We believe informed patients experience less stress, less pain, and overall, are more satisfied with the outcome of their treatment, regardless of what their care entails.
Dental bridges are a great restorative solution for one or more missing teeth. A bridge consists of a custom-made pontic, attached to crowns, which cover the surrounding teeth. Dr. Degel is experienced in dental bridge placement, making the procedure as easy and comfortable as possible.
Advancements in dentistry mean restorative materials are more lifelike and last longer than ever before. Our practice offers Prettau® Zirconia restorations, unparalleled in strength and beauty. Zirconium is also highly biocompatible, meaning it is safe and has no risk of side effects.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots placed in in the jawbone to support prosthetic teeth and provide the benefits and functionality of natural teeth. Dr. Degel is a well-known implant dentist in the area, offering many years of experience with standard and immediate implant placement.
Dental crowns are ideal for patients with damaged, decayed, or extremely worn teeth. A customized cap is placed over the weakened tooth in order to protect and preserve it. The crown gives the appearance of a beautiful, natural tooth, while allowing for normal chewing, biting, and speaking.
Bone grafting is a procedure for restoring bone mass in the jaw prior to dental implant surgery. If you have experienced a loss of bone volume from gum disease, trauma or infection, Dr. Degel can effectively graft the required amount of bone from the chin or another part of the jaw.
Full mouth reconstruction combines several restorative dentistry services. Many individuals require full mouth reconstruction to restore the functionality, health and appearance of the smile. The skilled dental staff at Astoria Dental Group utilizes the latest in restorative dentistry.
Dentures are removable appliances that restore functionality if you are missing several or more teeth. Made up of artificial teeth attached to a supporting structure, dentures resolve many of the problems associated with missing teeth. We offer partial and complete dentures.
Like fillings, inlays and onlays restore areas of a tooth that are damaged by decay or trauma. Inlays fill cavities in the middle of the tooth surface, and onlays restore a damaged cusp to provide added support. These premium dental restorations can last for many years with proper care.
