How Long do Restorative Results Last?
In order to estimate how long your restorations might last, it is important to take into account how well you take care of your teeth. If you spend plenty of time cleaning them, for example, then you can probably plan on them lasting for over a decade.

Thanks to continued research and development, there are still ways to make implants possible, even if you may lack the necessary amount of natural bone mass in your jaw. One way that implants are made possible is through a surgical procedure known as a bone graft. A bone graft takes bone from elsewhere in your body, or from a donor, and implants it into the weakened areas of your jaw, restoring strength. Another option, which can help you to avoid the need for a second surgery, is the All-on-4 treatment concept. This treatment is done if you are missing an entire arch of teeth and relies on four implants that are placed to make the most of the bone mass you still have remaining in your jaw.
Dental bridges offer a permanent tooth replacement option that fills the void left behind when a tooth goes missing. Bridges replace teeth in both form and function.

CEREC, which stands for Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic, is the latest technology for dental restorations. With this technology in the office, what used to be a two-visit procedure can be done in a single visit. CEREC is a type of CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) process that allows Dr. James Yang to create your custom restoration on the spot. An optical impression of your mouth is taken and the technology uses that impression to make it.
Crown lengthening (AKA: "crown-elongation" or "crown-extension") is a surgical procedure that is done when the tooth is too short to provide adequate retention for a restoration (usually a crown).

Implants offer numerous benefits over traditional replacement options.

Patients with tooth decay have several restorative options, depending on the extent of the damage. Most minor to moderate instances of decay usually require a dental filling. We may recommend a dental crown if there is a minimal amount of healthy tooth structure left. However, there is also a third option. Beautiful Smiles is one of the select numbers of dental offices that specialize in inlays and onlays. Inlays and onlays are considered a conservative alternative to full coverage dental crowns.
