Redefined Robert Graffeo, DDS
Absolutely everything needs a little maintenance from time to time even if you take great care of it, and this includes your smile! If you have a few teeth that have fallen victim to decay or trauma, Dr. Graffeo can practically turn back the clock using custom-made restorations. In the end, it will look like nothing was ever wrong in the first place! If you’re ready to finally get the smile repair you deserve, contact us today for restorative dentistry in Hoboken, NJ.
For minor cavities, Dr. Graffeo won’t use a dark gray metal filling to fix it that will instantly stick out in your smile. Instead, he’ll utilize a composite resin material, which is a mixture of glass particles and plastic. This can be shaded to perfectly match a patient’s enamel so the filling itself ends up blending seamlessly with the rest of the tooth. Plus, because these fillings are entirely metal-free, they don’t respond to hot and cold temperatures, meaning a patient won’t experience any dental sensitivity.
Dental crowns are the Swiss Army knife of dentistry. These restorations are designed to look and function just like natural teeth, and they work by fitting over the top of damaged teeth to protect and renew them at the same time. With one, Dr. Graffeo can repair a large cavity, put a broken tooth back together, beautify a permanently stained or oddly shaped tooth, and even replace a missing tooth when paired with a dental implant. In just two appointments, he can take a tooth that’s on the brink of extraction and give it new life.
