Restorative Dentistry with Dr. Shlafer
If you’re looking to restore your smile, Dr. Shlafer offers a range of treatments that can do exactly that. Whether you’re missing one tooth, multiple teeth, or a full arch, we’ll find the right treatment solution to meet your needs.
Dentures have been a popular tooth replacement for many years. They look natural, fit comfortably over your teeth, and can be easily removed for your convenience. We offer both partial and full dentures, giving us the ability to restore a full arch of teeth if necessary.
We can also anchor your dentures to your gums with multiple dental implants, creating a more stable restoration that won’t slide out of place.
Crowns and Bridges
A dental crown is a cap that fits snugly over your tooth to restore natural appearance and function. They’re made from durable, stain-resistant porcelain to ensure long-lasting and satisfying results. For patients who are short on time, we feature CEREC® technology that allows us to design and place your crown in just one visit.
As an alternative to crowns, we also offer dental bridges. These restorations rely on your surrounding natural teeth to support your new artificial tooth. Much like crowns, they’re natural-looking, durable, and high-functioning.
A cavity is a small hole in your tooth caused by the buildup of plaque, a type of sticky bacteria. If you have a cavity, we can treat it with a tooth-colored filling. The durable porcelain material used for this procedure isn’t affected by temperature and blends flawlessly with your teeth. They're also safer and more effective than traditional amalgam fillings.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays represent a comfortable middle ground, when the damage is too excessive for a filling but not excessive enough for a dental crown. Inlays and onlays are customized to fit your cavity perfectly and blend in with your smile. After they’re bonded in place, they provide strong and lasting support for your tooth.
