Restorative Dentistry Repairs and Renews the Smiles of Rochester Patients
Kritzman Dental Arts offers comfortable, comprehensive restorative dentistry in Rochester
At his Rochester restorative dentistry practice, Dr. Brian Kritzman uses the newest acrylic and porcelain materials that look natural and wear well. Whether you need crowns, bridges, inlays or fillings for your restorative dentistry treatments, these new materials not only look better, they also last longer, seal better and actually strengthen your teeth! You'll spend less on replacements in the years to come. And, with these new materials, less of the tooth is removed, which means less time in the chair and greater comfort for you. But even as good as these new materials are, don’t worry! We know that our Rochester patients may prefer metallic restorations, so we still offer gold inlays and onlays.
In the United States, all metals used in dental crowns and implants must get the approval of the FDA. However, some labs in the United States ship work overseas to reduce the cost of materials and labor. Recently, some imported dental crowns were found to contain lead.
Our office uses local dental laboratories here in Rochester (CQC, Arieno, and RTG) which guarantees that all of your restorations whether crowns, bridges, implants, partial dentures, or complete dentures, are made in the United States. Some labs in the United States ship work overseas to reduce the cost of materials and labor. Our exclusive use of local laboratories ensures you that all materials used to fabricate your restoration comply with all federal guidelines.
We also guarantee that every restoration is made using FDA registered materials for your safety, health and well-being. Our practice is committed to providing you with the highest quality restorations made in the United States by American workers.
Tooth-colored Fillings for Restorative Dentistry in Rochester
At our Rochester restorative dental practice, we provide our patients with the newest and best alternatives available, such as bonded ceramic composite resins. Not only do they look natural, they provide protection, seal extremely well, tolerate hot and cold temperatures, and repair easier. Many of our Rochester patients who undergo cosmetic or restorative dentistry elect to have dark silver fillings teeth replaced with the bonded ceramic resins to provide a total smile improvement. Please call our Rochester office if you want to look into replacing any of your old, unsightly silver fillings.
Crowns are Excellent Restorative Dentistry Options
If you're self-conscious about your smile due to cracked, broken, decayed or worn teeth, the restorative dentistry professionals at Kritzman Dental Arts can bring back your healthy, natural-looking smile with crowns. A filling can restore a small defect in a tooth, but a crown is the most durable, strongest way to restore a tooth with extensive damage, front or back for the long term. With all the materials and techniques modern restorative dentistry has to offer, crowns offer a natural-looking alterative for restorations.
Additional benefits of crowns include correcting bite problems, closing spaces between teeth, changing the angulations of teeth, and they can be used to replace missing teeth permanently, as part of a bridge, or over a dental implant.
Root Canals are the Restorative Dentistry Solution for Infected Teeth
Intermittent tooth pain or other symptoms such as lingering sensitivity to hot, cold or sweets, or pain to biting pressure can often progress to a severe, throbbing pain and facial swelling. These symptoms can often be resolved for our Rochester patients with the restorative dentistry option of root canal therapy.
At our Rochester restorative dentistry practice, a root canal is a relatively simple procedure to save the tooth with little or no discomfort in as few as one or two visits. After Dr. Kritzman removes the pulp and the root canal is cleaned and filled, a crown is then placed over the tooth to strengthen and protect it. A tooth with a root canal and crown can save the teeth and the smiles of our Rochester patients.
If you feel anxious or fearful about dental appointments this is a very important question to ask. You want to work with a provider who understands their patients and has options for sedation. For this reason we offer both nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation to make sure you feel comfortable during your visit. For more information about our sedation services please visit our Sedation Dentistry page.
