Our Restorative Dentistry Services

Dental damage happens to everyone, and it’s certainly nothing to feel embarrassed about. At West Somerville Dental Associates, improved techniques and modern technology have enabled us to offer more options than ever before when it comes to restoring a tooth to its ideal structure, function, and appearance. Plus, our patients can rest assured knowing that we will discuss any and all possible treatment options with you first, so that you can be sure to choose the one that works best for your unique needs. Providing you with exceptional dental care is always our top priority!

Traditional Crown & Bridge

Crowns are a common staple of dental care due to their versatility – they can be used to restore dental structure lost from injury or severe decay, repair fractured fillings, or even add cosmetic enhancement to a lacking tooth. They’re also a vital component of dental bridges, a fixed appliance that offers patients a sturdy and natural-looking way to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. By using two crowns to anchor your new bridge to healthy teeth on either side of the gap, we can give you a revitalized sense of durability and confidence in your new smile.

Full and Partial Dentures

Dentures are another option for patients who are struggling with severe tooth loss, because they offer much-needed convenience, reliability, and affordability. Personalized to closely resemble your natural teeth, dentures may be either “full” or “partial” depending on your unique needs. A full denture is designed to replace an entire arch of teeth and stays in place with the help of natural suction. A partial denture is custom-created to fit into your smile like a puzzle piece, supplying new teeth to fill any and all gaps. It’s held in place with the help of clips. Both full and partial dentures are removable, meaning that sleeping and practicing oral hygiene is much simpler and more comfortable. Our Somerville dental office also offers implant-retained dentures, which offer an increased sense of sturdiness and permanence.
