Here are your options in restorative dentistry from Complete Cosmetic Care Dentistry.
Following minor dental damage or tooth decay, fillings are used to replace lost tooth enamel and recreate the healthy function and appearance of your smile. This conservative treatment plan allows us to fully restore your picture-perfect smile. The process is fast and simple. We remove any damaged structure. Then, the putty-like composite resin is applied to the damaged area and shaped into position and hardened with a curing light. Once the filling is in place, we smooth and polish the tooth, leaving you with a flawlessly repaired smile.
Dentures & Partials
Patients dealing with tooth loss should not delay in seeking a replacement. Missing teeth contribute to low self-confidence and create difficulties eating and speaking properly. If you have lost several teeth or lack an entire row in the top or bottom jaw, a full or partial denture can give you back your smile confidence. Dentures are prosthetic teeth attached to a gum-colored base. Implant-retained dentures provide the most stability and contribute to lasting oral health, too.

Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns are restorations used for more advanced decay or damage. They fit over the top of the tooth to replace lost structure and protect the remaining parts of the tooth from additional injury. Dental crowns can also be used to support a fixed bridge tooth replacement prosthetic. These restorations are made up of a replacement tooth with a dental crown on both sides. The crowns are then attached to healthy teeth on both sides of the lost tooth, bridging the gap in your smile.
CEREC One-Visit Dental Restorations
Using CEREC, or the chairside economical reconstruction of esthetic ceramics, we can fit you with a porcelain dental crown or inlay and onlay (also known as an indirect filling) in just one visit to the dentist. The method uses CAD/CAM (computer aided design, computer aided manufacturing) technology, which allows your dentist to plan for, prepare, and place your restoration from the comfort of our state-of-the-art office.
CEREC saves you time, eliminates the need for a temporary crown between appointments, and takes away the risk of miscommunication between our office and a separate lab. And patients with sensitive gag reflexes love the fact that CEREC uses digital impressions, which are captured without the use of that uncomfortable, bad tasting cement. We appreciate digital imagery because it is more accurate than the traditional method, for improved treatment planning and better results overall.
Inlays & Onlays
For dental damage, decay, chips, and cracks that are too severe for restoration with fillings but not advanced enough for a full dental crown, we may recommend an inlay or onlay as a more conservative solution. Inlays are used to repair damage that occurs between the cusps (raised portions on the biting surfaces of teeth). Onlays are used to repair dental damage that impacts one or more tooth cusps. Like dental crown restorations, they’re made of high quality ceramic, but they allow us to preserve a larger amount of healthy tooth structure.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
Patients who suffer from multiple dental and/or oral issues require a comprehensive approach -- and that’s where a full mouth reconstruction comes in. Dr. Mohanna or Dr. Georgy will evaluate your teeth, gums, and all surrounding oral structures (like your jaw, or the temporomandibular joint) to determine what course of action would best serve you. The full mouth reconstruction pulls from multiple areas of dentistry to get you out of pain, while also improving the appearance and function of your smile.
In addition to basic dental restorations, we also provide more advanced oral surgery services, including root canal therapy and wisdom tooth extraction.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy has a bad reputation as being painful, but actually, these complex restorations will significantly relieve toothache and dental sensitivity that often precede the need for root canal therapy. These procedures are performed by drilling a small hole into the center of the tooth where the pulp and nerve tissues are housed. With the damaged tissue removed, a dental crown is placed to protect and strengthen your treated tooth.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction
The third set of molars, wisdom teeth are often removed due to a lack of space within the smile to accommodate this new set of teeth. This can cause wisdom teeth to become impacted, unable to erupt from the gums. They can also cause surrounding teeth to shift out of alignment, and lead to a wide range of other complications. For these and other reasons, extraction is often recommended.
