Featured Restorative Services
We Offer Full & Partial Dentures to Fill Gaps in Teeth
Do you have missing teeth? Do those smile gaps affect your confidence, your job opportunities, and your social life? Restorative dentists Dr. Kostas can help! With our teeth replacement options, such as dentures and partials, our restorative dentistry team can fill in all your smile gaps. Our dental devices are natural-looking, and will return function and beauty to your teeth. At Complete Dental Care, we can also recreate your smile by placing and restoring dental implants. Dental implants are the only teeth-replacement treatment that restores both the crown and root of your missing teeth. Implants prevent bone loss and are permanent solutions that will fully restore your smile.
In some cases, restorative dentistry includes extractions. While Dr. Kostas prefers to keep as much tooth structure intact as possible, trauma, decay, root canals, or orthodontic needs may require extracting teeth. At our Burlington restorative dental practice, we ensure your total comfort with local anesthetics and sedation dentistry. Dr. Kostas wants you to feel at ease during all your procedures at our Burlington office, and you can expect us to cater to whatever level of comfort you need in order to receive appropriate restorative care.
Traditional Crown & Bridge
Dental crowns are used to repair teeth following decay, to protect root canal treated teeth, replace teeth as part of dental implant or fixed bridge restorations, and even to correct purely cosmetic concerns. This versatile treatment option typically requires patients visit our office two times. During the initial appointment, we prepare the tooth, capture bite impressions, design the crown, and place a temporary to protect the tooth. Once we receive the final restoration from our lab, patients return to exchange their temporary for a permanent crown. We also offer same day restoration using the CEREC system.
Tooth Colored Fillings
Traditionally, fillings were made from a silver-colored metal amalgam. However, in addition to their less than perfect appearance, amalgams also expand and contrast damaging remaining dental structure and causing them to be replaced over time. Tooth colored fillings are the accepted standard these days, and they’re crafted from a high quality composite resin that mimics the natural tooth structure. Applied directly to the damaged tooth, the putty-like resin seeps into even the smallest pits and grooves in teeth creating a solid, lasting bond, making these restorations cosmetically and restoratively superior.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canals are not the painful experience many patients believe them to be. In fact, they significantly reduce toothache pain that prompts the procedure. Root canal therapy is required when decay or damage reaches the innermost pulp layer of the tooth where the nerve system is housed. This dental damage can be extremely painful as it directly irritates the nerve. Root canals remove the entire damaged pulp and nerve tissue, relieving pain almost instantly. We then refill the tooth with a biocompatible substance, and reseal the treated tooth for optimal protection.
You really can have the dental health and the dazzling smile you want. Complete Dental Care wants to give our patients comfortable and comprehensive restorative dentistry, so they have healthy teeth and gums throughout their lives. Whether you have missing teeth, cavities, infections, or broken teeth, our Burlington dentist can help repair your smile and renew your oral health—one tooth at a time!
