Planning Ahead with Your Smile & Dental Restorations

Planning Ahead with Your Smile & Dental Restorations


We follow the golden rule: we treat our patients the way we would like to be treated. It is important to Rubino Dentistry to provide you with real information, explain our recommendations, and give you time to absorb the info.


We understand that just as milestones like marriage, graduations, and retirement involve planning, ensuring your smile will last through your lifetime takes some forethought too! That is where our Chicago dental office would like to help you!


For example, some restorative solutions are so beautiful that you may believe they are only cosmetic. Yet many metal-free restorations are made of white composite, porcelain, cast glass, or resin that are matched to your enamel were actually created to save you smile, and not just dress it up.


It is time that you consider these fixes:


When your tooth is too damaged for a simple filling, inlays (a fix that goes in the tooth and fills the cavity) and onlays (fixes that go over the tooth to cover it up). Both of these fixes can be excellent solutions.


A tooth crown can be used to cap your entire tooth and provide improved shape and strength to the tooth. The crown can improve the strength of the tooth to its original strength and look and feel just like a real tooth. One or more can also be attached to a dental bridge when there are several teeth that are missing from your smile.


A crown can also be placed on top of a permanently implanted artificial root made of biocompatible metal. These dental implants can also be used to anchor a bride or a denture for even greater stability and strength for your mouth. If you are considering dental implants, then know that a dental implant will look, feel, and be as strong as a real tooth. Dental implants are secured to the bone in the jaw via a screw and are a permanent fix for missing teeth.


Why should you replace missing teeth? Well, when you lose a tooth, the surrounding teeth will shift and fill the space that was previously occupied by a tooth. This will cause gaps in your teeth and can lead to other oral health dangers.
