Fill in the gap that missing teeth leave behind. A dental bridge is a restoration that can replace a single tooth or consecutive lost teeth. This dental prosthetic is best for patients with multiple missing teeth in a row. There are three types of dental bridges: traditional, cantilever, and Maryland bridges. Each type of bridge comes with its different benefits. We can help patients choose which type of bridge works best for their needs. To learn about your dental bridge options, see Dental bridge.
Restore health, tooth structure, and function back to a decayed tooth using a dental crown. Dental crowns are porcelain ceramic caps that we provide to our patients to restore tooth damage and discoloration. Dental crowns are durable and look just like natural teeth. This is because we can color-match them to blend in with your natural tooth enamel. We also cap a tooth with a dental crown after a painless root canal. To learn about our dental crown process, see Dental crowns.
Replace missing teeth for a more appealing and functional smile using dental implants. If you lost teeth due to an accident, we can replace them with permanent teeth implants.
Dental implants are titanium posts that our dentists surgically insert into your empty tooth sockets that a lost tooth leaves behind. We can use them to replace single missing teeth or support dental bridges and dentures. Using dental implants to restore missing teeth provides longer-lasting and healthier results for our patients. To learn about our dental implant services, see Dental implants.
Dentures & Partials
Replace a full row of missing teeth and get your smile back with a denture. Dr. Dechter and Dr. Moy provide full and partial dentures to our patients with rows or a full arch of lost teeth. Just like dental bridges, we can secure dentures using dental implants for a permanent result that doesn’t slip around in your mouth or irritate your gums. Compared to removable dentures, implant-secured dentures make it easier for patients to eat and speak comfortably. To learn about your denture options, see Dentures.
Periodontitis, or gum disease, is not only a common oral health problem but a truly damaging one. What can begin as gum irritation and inflammation may quickly lead to gum recession and bone loss. We can help prevent gum disease from ever occurring with periodontal screenings and routine cleanings.
Address bleeding gums to improve your long-term oral health at our dental office. Periodontal disease is a common issue among patients that our dentists can quickly address before it gets worse. To learn about our periodontal treatments for bleeding gums, see Periodontal therapy.
Repairing Tooth Damage
Repairing tooth damage can restore the structural integrity of your tooth and the function of your bite. Chips, cracks, and the loss of part of a tooth affect your dental health in a variety of ways. It can increase your risk for decay, gum disease, and even tooth loss if not addressed as soon as possible.
Dechter and Moy Dentistry will evaluate the damage to your teeth and the overall condition of your smile before making recommendations for restoration treatments. We will work to meet your oral health needs while maintaining your budget in mind.
If you have damaged or worn teeth and you have not experienced any trauma, you should schedule a consultation with our dentists. Often, we see patients with unexplained tooth damage. You might be grinding your teeth at night, or have a TMJ-related disorder. We look for these and other signs of bite disorders during your visits with us.

Restorative Dental FAQs
Read answers to common questions about restorative dentistry to learn more specifics about our treatments.
How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants are permanent restorations for single missing teeth or whole arches of lost teeth. The dental implant post or body will last forever. This is because they consist of titanium and fuse to the jawbone for the most secure and durable results possible.
What are the best modern dental crowns?
We craft modern dental crowns from porcelain ceramic. Porcelain ceramic is a versatile material that withstands the forces of biting and chewing like natural teeth. Our dental crowns also blend in with the color of your natural teeth. We shade-match crowns for a natural-looking result so that you can smile with confidence.
Can you reverse gum disease?
Our dentists can treat early signs of gum disease including bleeding gums and gum swelling using antibacterial rinses and a deep cleaning. For patients with severe gum disease, we may refer them to an oral surgeon for surgery. These treatments can help reverse gum disease and even prevent periodontitis from occurring in the first place.
