When you lose teeth, you lose more than part of your smile. You lose confidence in your appearance. You lose the ability to speak and eat comfortably.

Dental Crowns

If you have teeth that are broken or worn down but still retain healthy roots, Dr. Orenstein generally doesn’t have to extract or replace them. Instead, he can preserve those teeth with new dental crowns. Crowns provide the appearance and function of a real tooth, but they’re made of durable substitute materials. Our in-house CEREC system enables Dr. Orenstein to design, fabricate, and place those crowns during a single visit. Here crowns don’t only save teeth from extraction, they save you time!

When placing crowns Dr. Orenstein strips away some of the outer enamel from the affected teeth, fills any cavities you may have, then positions the new crowns. With his keen eye for esthetics, he can ensure your crowns match the shade and shape of surrounding teeth for a seamless smile. You’ll love how your teeth look, feel, and perform with new crowns.

Dental Implants

If any of your teeth are so extensively decayed that even a specialist like Dr. Orenstein can’t fix them, he usually recommends tooth extractions. While this will stop the decay of those teeth, your jawbone can begin to decay without the stimulation of tooth roots. You also have to deal with the embarrassment and difficulties that often go along with missing teeth. Dental implants, today’s gold standard in tooth replacement, help you avoid all of those complications. They can fill you with the confidence of a full smile that not only looks beautiful but that’s made to last.

Unlike natural teeth, dental implants don’t decay, and their crowns retain their original attractive color. Whether you need a single tooth, several teeth or two full arches of missing teeth replaced, dental implants are the solution. In fact, you may be able to have broken teeth extracted and replaced with implants in just one day thanks to our expertise and state-of-the-art nSequence® surgical technology! If you already have dentures, you may want to consider an upgrade to implant supported dentures or dental implants.
