Don’t let tooth decay or other damage to your teeth prevent you from looking and feeling your best. Dr’s Lerner and Lemongello are proud to offer our patients the most beautiful dental restorations available. No matter what your reason for requiring a dental restoration, we have a treatment option available for you.
The most common reason that many of our patients require dental restoration is unaddressed tooth decay or cavities. For treatment of this extremely common condition, we recommend the use of composite resin fillings. These fillings are created to match the natural color of your teeth, making them both effective and discreet. No one will know that you’ve had your teeth repaired.
Tooth colored fillings are more attractive than the metal fillings of the past and are also safer for your teeth. In the past, metal fillings have caused teeth to crack or even discolor over time. This will not occur with a composite resin filling. Additionally, the resin used in composite fillings is strong and functions more like your original tooth enamel.
If you are interested in receiving a composite, tooth-colored filling and live in the Palm Beach, Florida area, call our office to schedule a personal consultation today to learn more.
Our patients often are under the impression that implants and implant crown take a long time to complete. You have to wait for the bone to heal but in most cases the crown can be placed in about 3 months after the implant is placed. With some implant systems this can be shortened to 6-8 weeks. You must realize that bone takes a certain amount of time to heal. If you broke your arm you would be in a cast 2 months waiting for the bone to heal. The jaw is no different. In many cases however the patient is not left without a tooth for this period of healing. There are many different options available to provide a temporary tooth during this time including temporary dentures. There are situations where implant healing may take longer depending on the quality and quantity of bone.
