Learn How To Restore Your Smile

  • August 1, 2017

Sharks and alligators can regrow dozens or hundreds of teeth during their lives. We can’t, which is why we should be thankful for modern restorative dentistry.

Today, we can do everything from fixing a chipped tooth to replacing every tooth in your mouth. To celebrate the many ways restorative dentistry can help you, we will be writing posts throughout the month about the many restorative services that we offer at First Dental Associates.

If you live in or near Reading, MA, we welcome you to call 781-435-7290 or contact us online to schedule a consultation with our dentist, Dr. Nasrin Sadeghi, to discuss which of our services could help you.

Ways To Restore Your Smile

It’s truly remarkable how far restorative dental care has come.

Throughout human history, people have understood the importance of replacing lost teeth and repairing damaged teeth. At different times and places, people have used animal bones, seashells, stones, ivory, and the teeth of deceased humans to replace their own lost teeth. Gold, other metals, and various ceramics have been used to repair teeth that were damaged.

The intention behind all those repairs was to restore the function of missing and damaged teeth. Today, we have restorative options that function as well as real teeth but also look like natural teeth as well. With that in mind, here’s a short overview of restorative services we’ll be discussing throughout the month:

➤ Dental bonding and fillings — This is a great way to quickly and effectively fix minor problems like chips and small cavities.

➤ Dental crowns — Crowns can be used to repair teeth what are broken, cracked, and worn-down. They also can be used as part of a tooth replacement.

➤ Root canals —  If you have an infected tooth, a root canal is the best way to remove the infection and to restore the function of your smile.

➤ Dental bridges — If you need to replace missing teeth, dental bridges are a reliable way to restore the function of your teeth and to fill gaps in your smile.

➤ Dentures — If you are missing a whole row of teeth, dentures can be used to replace them. Whether you prefer traditional or implant-supported dentures, we can help.

In our discussions about these services, we also will include information about dental implants. When these were first developed in the 1960s, they completely changed what is possible in restorative care.

Why You Should Get Restorative Dentistry From Us

We know that we aren’t the only dentist office that offers restorative care, so why should you come to First Dental Associates?

First, we make your comfort one of our top priorities. We don’t want our dentist office to feel cold and sterile. We’ve created a warm and welcoming environment with our caring staff and comfort items.

We have added televisions in each of our exam rooms. This way you can watch your favorite shows or follow your favorite team while we work to keep your mouth as healthy as it can be.

Second, we have incorporated state-of-the-art technology into our practice. With digital X-rays we can see images sooner and in greater detail with a fraction of the radiation of old film X-ray machines.

We also have intraoral cameras, which we can use to show you what we’re seeing inside your mouth, and tools like the VELscope to help us detect potential problems earlier than ever.

A third reason to come to our dentist office in Reading is our dentist, Dr. Sadeghi.

In addition to her compassionate approach to dental care, she has a strong background in restorative dentistry.

Before she opened her own practice, she worked in the Boston area for 10 years. This gave her time to hone her skills and to build on what she learned as a graduate of Boston University’s Goldman School of Dentistry.
