Dental implants are considered the best restorative treatment available for patients with missing teeth. Implants are small metal posts that are surgically placed in the jaw. Over time, implants fuse with the surrounding bone, which allows them to provide a lifetime of unparalleled support for dental crowns, bridges, and dentures. Unlike most other practices, we can perform all aspects of an implants treatment in-house at Joseph T. Mormino, DDS, from surgery to the creation and placement of your final restoration.
Renew the Function and Aesthetic Appeal of Your Smile with Restorative Dentistry
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a damaged or badly decayed tooth to provide support and improve its function and appearance. Additionally, a crown can also attach to a dental implant to replace a single missing tooth. Your crown will be custom-crafted from high-quality materials in our on-site dental lab to blend flawlessly with your smile. Additionally, our on-site dental lab also allows Dr. Joseph Mormino to provide patients with same-day crowns in many cases.
If you are missing multiple consecutive teeth, a dental bridge offers a trusted restorative solution. These custom restorations use multiple artificial teeth to fill in the gaps created by tooth loss. At Joseph T. Mormino, DDS, we offer both traditional bridges, which are held in place by dental crowns on each end, as well as implant-supported bridges that are secured by artificial tooth roots. No matter what type you select, your bridge will be made in our on-site lab based on detailed impressions of your smile.
Dr. Mormino offers both traditional and implant-supported dentures to meet the diverse needs of his patients. Traditional dentures are removable and more affordable, while implant-supported dentures offer an unmatched level of strength and support. Both types can be custom-made to replace several teeth or an entire dental arch. At many other practices, patients must wait weeks to receive their dentures. Since we have an on-site lab at Joseph T. Mormino, DDS, we can often provide same-day dentures.
In some cases, a single restorative procedure will not adequately address a patient's concerns. If you have a large number of damaged or missing teeth, Dr. Mormino can combine multiple procedures into a custom full mouth reconstruction treatment plan to completely renew the strength and function of your smile. Your full mouth reconstruction plan will be personalized based on your restorative needs, aesthetic goals, and budget, and it can also include cosmetic treatments.
Dental fillings can strengthen a tooth damaged by decay and cavities and preserve the appearance of your smile. We use tooth-colored fillings because they're safer, better-looking, and more durable than traditional silver fillings. For more severe cases, Dr. Mormino may recommend a dental crown instead of a filling. In every case, Dr. Mormino will evaluate your situation and recommend the most conservative treatment possible.
