The versatility and power of restorative dentistry: Repair, preserve, and replace damaged or missing teeth
At the office of D. Bartholomew G. Kreiner DDS in Bel Air, Maryland, we set the standard. Our approach to dentistry fuses timeless qualities of kind, unhurried, and personalized care with investments in training and technologies to support the latest and safest restorative treatments.
Everything that you need to bring back the health and beauty of your smile (or to make it better than it was before) is here, under one roof. So, Dr. Kreiner has the tools and knowledge to handle everything from “simple” metal or composite fillings to more complex forms of tooth replacement and full-mouth reconstruction.
We also emphasize precise planning with advanced diagnostic tools by our side and the use of high-performance, quality dental materials. These characteristics further support patients’ satisfaction with the results of their treatment, which look natural and hold up well. Since our restorations are so durable, they are of great value. With good care at home and at our office, no future treatment is needed.
How we restore and celebrate one-of-a-kind smiles
If modifications to oral care or preventative services like sealants are insufficient to resolve teeth damage, we may recommend either metal or non-metal (composite) dental fillings.
For larger cavities or areas of decay, dental inlays, onlays (partial crowns), or full crowns may be appropriate. Here again, your options are vast – from high noble metals to tooth-colored ceramics like porcelain. Factors such as the location and function of your damaged tooth can influence recommendations for materials to make your crown.
Crowns may also be the “finishing touch” following root canal therapy to preserve severely damaged teeth.
When extractions are unavoidable, traditional bridges or dentures can be used to replace one tooth, several teeth, or all of the teeth in the upper or lower dental arch(es).
A nod to our focus on the latest quality materials and systems, we may recommend Valplast® partial dentures, renowned for their flexibility and comfort.
We are also happy to discuss options like immediate tooth replacement and dental implants with you. Implants are popular because they are designed to mimic the structure of a natural tooth. The implant itself is just one (albeit essential) part of the prosthetic tooth. It serves as a replacement root to stabilize the attached restorations in the jaw.
Are you due for your dental visit? Don’t wait any longer! We may be able to avoid the need for restorations or at least extensive ones by successfully treating problems like enamel erosion early – before they cause irreversible damage.
