Are you looking for a dental practice that will be able to provide you with a wide range of dental services? At our dental office, Fifth Avenue Dental Associates, we have many different dentists on staff who specialize in a wide variety of dental services. This means that if you ever need the services of a dentist who specializes in a particular area, you will not need to go to a different dental practice that you do not know, to get the services that you need. When you need to have your teeth restored with either veneers, crowns, or bridges, you will want to be seen by our expert Dyker Heights dentist at our practice.
At Fifth Avenue Dental Associates, just one of our expert and highly trained dentists is Dr. George Diacoumakos. When you come to our dental practice needing to have a tooth restored, our Dyker Heights dentist will first review your individual dental situation and then let you know the best way to have this done. If you have a purely cosmetic tooth problem, he may well recommend that you get a porcelain veneer to fix the situation. Porcelain veneers are actually thin shells that are made of porcelain, that are made to cover the front of a tooth. The veneers are permanently attached to the tooth, and are made to last for many years. Porcelain veneers are able to restore teeth that have a variety of cosmetic problems including: teeth that are too short; teeth that are misshapen; teeth that have uneven gaps between them; teeth that are slightly misaligned; teeth that are chipped; teeth that have surface cracks in the enamel; teeth that are stained and cannot be brightened using professional dental whitening or bleaching methods; and many other cosmetic dental problems.
Our Dyker Heights dentist can also use porcelain crowns to restore teeth. Crowns are generally used when a tooth needs to have its function improved or to be strengthened. For example, if a tooth has too many fillings and is at risk of cracking, our dentist may decide that the best way to proceed is to restore it with a porcelain crown. There are times when porcelain crowns are also use for purely cosmetic reasons. Porcelain crowns are also used as the top portion of dental implants, or to restore teeth after a root canal procedure. If you have missing teeth, our dentist will be able to provide you with a fixed or removable dental bridge, so that you will be able to chew better and so that your smile will look completely restored.
