Restorative Dentistry

No matter the lifestyle, everyone’s teeth eventually show the wear and tear associated with injury, diet, habits, and just daily life. There is no reason why everyday life should hinder the look and feel of your oral condition – thanks to the mastery level, restorative dental opportunities that are changing the lives of patients every day at Dr. Rosenberg’s practice. Read on and explore how your life can change for the better as well.


A dental implant is one of the most permanent forms of restorative dentistry and can restore a single tooth or several teeth. Dental implants involve the placement of a surgical grade titanium post directly into your jawbone by one of Dr. Rosenberg’s trusted specialists. As the bone bonds to the post, it forms a secure foundation for the attachment of a crown or a prosthetic tooth that is custom created just for you. Implants fit solidly, reducing the problems associated with traditional dentures such as gum sores, denture adhesives, shifting, difficulty speaking, and difficulty chewing. Implants are sometimes used instead of bridges to maintain the integrity of the teeth on either side of the gap.


Your teeth undergo a tremendous amount of stress during your lifetime. Teeth may exhibit this wear in a variety of ways, including discoloration, chipping, and cracking. Restore your teeth and smile to look brilliant once again with crowns. Porcelain crowns can be shaded to match your teeth brilliantly. After some tooth preparation, crowns are specifically fitted to restore functionality and to enhance the appearance of your smile.


When teeth are missing, your smile undergoes significant changes. Missing teeth cause you to chew differently and may trigger mouth pain. As your remaining teeth work to compensate for the loss, gaps and spaces form that only make the situation worse. Neighboring teeth may begin to move about, moving into the gap and resulting in discomfort, pain, and even more problems down the road. A porcelain bridge, custom designed to fit your mouth, keeps your smile aligned and your bite functional. Bridges are anchored to existing teeth or crowns on either side of the missing tooth. They are semi-permanent, meaning they can only be affixed or removed by a dentist, and are a long-term, restorative solution to your damaged smile.


Sometimes removing tooth decay effectively requires the removal of a portion of your tooth. Dr. Rosenberg customizes a porcelain inlay or onlay to fill the space left behind when part of your tooth is removed. Traditionally, inlays and onlays were made out of metal, much like traditional filings. However, today porcelain-milled inlays and onlays are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth and provide you relief from chewing pain, cavity pain, and tooth degeneration. Inlays and onlays are much like a partial crown – a more conservative option than full crowns – and preserve much of the natural tooth.
