Restorative Dentistry

Restoring Damaged Smiles

If you have a chipped, cracked, broken or missing tooth, Dr. Cerqueira has many solutions to fit your needs and budget. Restorative dentistry is about making your smile whole and healthy again so you can smile and chew with confidence. Our restorative procedures include:

Composite Restorations

These tooth-colored fillings are better for your teeth than metal fillings. They also provide greater bonding strength and protection for your teeth while they improve the appearance of your smile. When you have a cavity and need a filling, this is the best way to get it done.

Dental Crowns & Dental Bridges

Our precision-crafted dental crowns are designed to fit perfectly over entire teeth to restore your bite function while giving added strength and protection. Dental bridges are designed to replace lost teeth. The bridge is anchored to adjacent healthy teeth and contains a false tooth known as a pontic. The false tooth fills the space left by a missing tooth and restores both your smile and your proper chewing function.

Dental Implant Restorations

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, nothing beats today’s dental implants. They look, feel and function just like natural teeth and they are designed to be permanent. Dr. Cerqueira specializes in the implant restoration or dental crown portion of the implant – the part that shows when you smile. The implant itself is a special titanium screw that’s implanted into the jawbone much like the root structure of a natural tooth.

Dentures & Denture Repairs

Using modern materials and techniques, Dr. Cerqueira designs comfortable, quality dentures that look and feel better than ever. Properly made dentures restore a person’s beautiful smile, chewing ability, speaking function and confidence. We also repair broken dentures in-house and can often complete a repair the same day.
