Restoration Dentistry in Pittsford

Getting Your Smile Back to Where it Should Be

Although modern discoveries and technologies like fluoride treatments, advanced dental procedures, and increased patient awareness have improved the general public’s overall oral health, problems can still arise. Our teeth are susceptible to decay, damage, and disease. When trouble strikes, we have restorative dental treatments to fall back on. Restorative dentistry can salvage your damaged or decayed teeth and improve your oral health.

You may also seek restorative treatment to:

  • Fill in gaps to improve appearance and chewing functionality
  • Fix an improper bite
  • Replace missing teeth
  • Replace old or poorly done dental treatments

At Sanger Dental at the Basin, we provide restorative treatments with the utmost care and professionalism. Dr. Sanger will inspect your smile and assess which treatments and procedures are best suited to improve your dental health.

Composite Fillings

When your tooth has decay, fillings are often a preventive procedure that will restore the health of your tooth. Dr. Sanger will evacuate the decay in your tooth and replace it with a natural tooth-colored composite filling.

Crowns

Crowns cover the entire surface of the tooth and can be used to protect a fractured tooth, decay, or fillings. They are also ideal after a root canal has been performed.

Bridges

A Bridge is an appliance that is fixed to your teeth and can replace missing teeth to help restore your smile, facial shape, and chewing abilities.

Root Canal Therapy

If your tooth’s nerve has been infected or begun to decay, you may need a root canal. To protect the tooth from further damage, root canal therapy removes the pulp, nerves, bacteria, and decay from your tooth, filling the space with medicated material to restore complete functionality.

This procedure is completed in one-visit. Dr. Sanger has attended several advance root canal therapy courses to stay informed on the most up to date information and techniques.

Dentures

A denture is a dental appliance that can be inserted to replace missing teeth. They look like natural teeth and can significantly improve the appearance and functionality of your smile. Dentures are either complete – when all teeth are missing – or partial, when only some teeth are missing.

A complete denture can be:

  • Conventional: Made after the teeth are removed and tissue has healed
  • Immediate: Made before the teeth are removed and inserted as soon as tooth removal is performed

Getting dentures requires multiple dental appointments for patients to have their measurements taken and for patients to try on their customized denture and ensure proper fit and color. Your Pittsford dentist will explain how to properly care for your new dental appliance, which should last several years.

Inlays & Onlays

Inlays and onlays are both customized fillings made of gold, porcelain, or composite material that are placed either within or on top of a tooth with a defective filling or damage. Onlays are a smart alternative to crowns or caps because less tooth structure has to be removed. Inlays are an alternative to conventional fillings. Both treatments require two appointments and may need to be replaced after several years.
