Restorative Dentistry

If your teeth have been damaged or lost, Modern Dentistry of New England offers a variety of restorative treatments to help return your smile to full function! Our dentist uses the latest techniques and technologies and only the best materials when providing your restoration to ensure a comfortable experience with beautiful results. 

At Modern Dentistry of New England, we are a mercury-free practice. This means that we use only tooth-colored, or composite, materials when providing your dental fillings. When you receive a dental filling, our dentist will carefully match the filling material to the natural color of your teeth, providing a beautiful restoration of your smile as well as strengthening your tooth structure.

A dental filling is a restoration used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage. We may recommend a filling if your tooth has been damaged by tooth decay (for example, if your tooth has a cavity), or if your tooth suffers from minor fracturing or chipping. The dental filling is used to restore your tooth to its original structure and function and to return your smile to good health. There are two main types of dental fillings available: amalgam fillings and composite fillings.

The process for placing a filling requires just one comfortable visit to our office. Our dentist will first remove the decayed and damaged portion of your tooth, and then clean the tooth to remove all traces of decay. We then fill your tooth with the filling material and shape it to match your tooth’s shape. Finally, the filling is hardened for a lasting restoration.

If your tooth is decayed or damaged, a dental filling may be a great choice for restoring your oral health and function. We invite you to call or visit us today to learn more about dental fillings and to schedule your next appointment with our team. We look forward to caring for your smile!

If you are missing one or more teeth in a row, Dr. Sherif Gabr can provide a dental bridge to restore your smile! This permanent, non-surgical treatment can literally “bridge” the gap caused by your missing teeth, restoring your ability to smile with confidence and chew and speak with ease.

If you are missing one tooth or multiple teeth in a row, we may recommend a dental bridge to restore your smile. A bridge is a fixed dental restoration, meaning it is non-removable. The dental bridge is anchored in place through the use of two dental crowns, which are custom made to fit your smile and are placed on the teeth or dental implants next to the space left by the missing tooth. These crowns hold the artificial tooth in place to restore your smile, ensuring that your restoration will not easily shift or come loose. It typically requires only two visits to our practice to complete the dental bridge. Dental bridges are designed to last for many years and to restore the function, beauty, and health of your smile.

Our dentist may recommend a dental bridge to improve your smile by:

  • Restoring your ability to speak, eat, and chew as normal
  • Alleviating excess stress on your bite
  • Improving the shape and volume of your face
  • Replacing an unwanted removable partial denture
  • Preventing your remaining natural teeth from moving out of position
  • Enhancing the appearance of your smile

We will help you determine whether a custom dental bridge is the right choice for restoring your smile after tooth loss. For more information, please call or visit us today.

Dental implants are permanent restorations that look and feel just like your natural teeth! Dr. Sherif Gabr can provide beautiful, custom-made restorations for your implants to restore your smile and your oral health.

Dental implants are permanent, stable tooth replacements that can be used to restore your smile if you have on missing tooth, several missing teeth, or if you are missing all of your teeth. The dental implant post, which is a screw made of titanium, is surgically placed in your jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. This replaces your missing tooth root and ensures that your dental restoration is stable. A period of healing is then often required to allow your bone to begin to bond with the biocompatible post. Following this healing period, our dentist will place the dental implant restoration, or replacement tooth, which fits on top of the implant post. Depending on which teeth are missing and your personal dental needs, your implant restoration might be a dental crown, dental bridge, complete denture, or partial denture. Each dental implant restoration is custom made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically.

Replacing a missing tooth can restore your smile to optimal health, function, and appearance. A dental implant is a great option for restoring your smile because the implant is designed to look, function, and feel just like your natural teeth, and with proper care, it can last a lifetime. For more information about the benefits of implant dentistry, and to schedule your implant consultation, please call or visit us soon.

Dr. Sherif Gabr may recommend a dental inlay or onlay to restore damage to the chewing surfaces or the backs of your teeth. These restorations are specially designed to fit perfectly, restoring your teeth and smile.

Inlays and onlays are dental restorations that are used to repair damage or decay. If the damage is not extensive enough to warrant the use of a dental crown but is too serious to be repaired with a filling, our experienced dentist may recommend a dental inlay or onlay. Also known as partial crowns, inlays and onlays are custom created from porcelain, composite resin material or gold. Our dentist will ensure that your custom inlay or onlay perfectly fits your tooth to restore the health, function and appearance of your smile. Once placed, they are virtually undetectable in the mouth and conserve much of your natural tooth structure.

Both inlays and onlays are used to restore damaged teeth. The difference between a dental inlay and a dental onlay is that an inlay is used when the damage does not reach the cusps of the tooth, while a dental onlay is used when the damage extends to one or more of the cusps. We will help you determine whether you need a dental inlay or onlay to restore your smile.

We welcome you to call or visit us today to learn more about dental inlays and onlays. We are eager to restore your smile!

Modern Dentistry of New England is happy to provide dentures as a restorative treatment if you are missing many or all your teeth. Dentures restore your confident smile and can even give you a more youthful appearance by supporting your cheeks and lips. There are many different types of dentures available.

Dentures are removable oral appliances used to replace multiple missing teeth. If you are missing several teeth or all of your teeth, dentures might be just what you need to restore the function, beauty, and health of your smile. There are two kinds of dentures: complete dentures and partial dentures.

  • A complete denture is used to replace all of the teeth in a full dental arch. We may suggest a complete denture to replace all of your teeth in both arches or just one, depending on your individual needs. Our dentist may suggest using a denture adhesive for improved stability.
  • A partial denture is used if you are missing multiple teeth but have remaining natural teeth. A partial denture often includes a thin framework or clasps that attach to the natural teeth for a secure fit.

Our dentist may recommend complete or partial dentures to restore your smile if you are missing multiple teeth; dentures can improve your ability to properly speak and eat, restore your natural facial volume, and enhance the overall beauty of your smile. Your dentures will be custom made to fit your smile comfortably, aesthetically, and securely. We invite you to call or visit us soon to learn more about how dentures can improve your smile!

Using E4D same-day restoration technology, Modern Dentistry of New England can provide custom-made, high-quality dental crowns in a single visit to our office. Dental crowns restore the shape, function, and appearance of your damaged teeth, covering them completely to prevent further decay.

A dental crown, or cap, is a restoration that can be used for a number of purposes. One of the most common uses of a dental crown is to restore a tooth that is significantly damaged or decayed. The crown is custom made to fit over your entire tooth, starting at the gum line, in order to restore your tooth to its original shape and size. Dental crowns can be made of gold, porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal; porcelain crowns are popular because they match the natural color and appearance of your teeth. Our dentist will help you determine which type of dental crown is right for your smile.

Your smile may benefit from a crown if a tooth is damaged or decayed to the point that a dental filling will not provide a successful restoration. Crowns can also be used for a number of other restorative and aesthetic purposes, including:

  • To protect a tooth following root canal treatment
  • To anchor and attach a dental bridge
  • To cover and complete a dental implant
  • To enhance the beauty of your smile
  • To improve a misshapen tooth
  • To strengthen a tooth that is fractured or weakened
  • To support a large filling when little natural tooth structure remains

To find out whether a dental crown is right for you, we welcome you to contact us today!
