If a patient has a cavity, Drs. Kushner prefers to address the damage with natural-looking materials rather than the dark metals that were the tradition for decades. Specifically, we use composite resin, which can be colored to match your natural tooth enamel. It also creates a tight seal that protects against future decay. Thanks to tooth-colored fillings, you can smile confidently, and no one even has to know that you had a cavity!
To safeguard vulnerable teeth, we can fit them with dental crowns, or “caps.” While traditional crowns were made from gold and other metals, we provide zirconia and EMAX crowns. These materials are strikingly similar to tooth enamel in nearly every way. Not only do our dental crowns restore structure and function to at-risk teeth, but they do so without altering your natural-looking smile in any way.
When the nerve inside of a tooth is subjected to infection or damage, it can be intensely painful. Often, the only way to address this problem is by performing a root canal. Despite the pervasive rumor that root canals hurt, the truth is that they actually relieve pain. How so? This procedure entails removing the infected tissue within the tooth, which not only eliminates pain, but also preserves your natural tooth from needing to be extracted.
