Restorative Dentistry in Cleveland
Modern dentistry has highly effective ways to protect teeth, and even when decay or trauma impact your smile, dentists have many techniques to restore health. Whether dentition is affected by small cavities or more severe damage, there is virtually no ailment dental professionals cannot treat.
Dr. Asra Hashmi helps families with restorative dental treatments that address a myriad of dental problems. A2Z Dental and Braces serves people in Cleveland and surrounding communities, so they can have long-lasting and healthy smiles.
Restore Health to Teeth with Composite Fillings, Inlays, and Onlays
Tooth decay is the most common issue found in dentition, and Dr. Hashmi uses intraoral cameras, which have powerful lenses to detect even the smallest cavities. Early treatment of cavities is an excellent way to prevent more serious dental problems from developing.
Tooth-colored fillings blend in with the natural color of enamel. Made of a composite resin, they are bonded onto teeth with a curing lamp. This treatment is a favorite of dentists because it allows for the preservation of optimal tooth structure.
For teeth with more advanced decay, Dr. Hashmi may recommend dental inlays or onlays. After decay is removed, an impression of the tooth is taken. A lab custom designs a prosthetic to replace the section of tooth that was damaged. Inlays and Onlays are made of durable porcelain, and bond securely onto the tooth. They restore both the function and the appearance of teeth with a beautiful result.
Protect Your Smile at A2Z Dental and Braces with Root Canal Therapy and Beautiful Crowns
If decay has reached the inner chamber, or pulp, of a tooth, then A2Z Dental and Braces may recommend root canal therapy. This restorative procedure disinfects the tooth’s pulp, eliminating the risk of infection in surrounding teeth and the entire body. Root canal therapy allows natural teeth with advanced damage to continue functioning, and it prevents the need for tooth extractions.
Frequently after root canal therapy or other significant trauma to teeth, Dr. Hashmi restores function and beauty to smiles with a porcelain or ceramic crown. Crowns encompass a damaged tooth, protecting it from further harm and allowing the root to remain intact. They shine with the luster of natural tooth enamel and preserve the tooth’s full force of chewing.
Several Options for Patients with Tooth Loss
Although tooth loss has been significantly reduced by modern dentistry, sometimes it is still unavoidable. There are several ways to replace missing teeth.
- Dental Implant restorations are the most effective tooth replacement available because they permanently restore both the tooth root and the tooth with a prosthetic that looks and feels natural. Implant posts function like tooth roots, and they support a crown that is matched to surrounding teeth. Patients can replace a single tooth, a row of teeth, or a complete arch of teeth.
- Fixed bridges are a permanent treatment for the loss of one to three teeth. First, teeth adjacent to the missing teeth are fortified with crowns so they can be a secure anchor. Then the bridge of pontic crowns are cemented to them. The entire bridges blends with the surrounding color of teeth and it restores function to your bite.
- Partial Denture and Dentures are removable prosthetics made of acrylic. They can replace a row of teeth or a full arch. Partial dentures remain secure with metal hooks clasped onto neighboring dental structures, and full sets of dentures rely on adhesive paste to attach to gums. Dentures have a beautiful aesthetic and they restore many of the functions of natural teeth.
