Restorative Dentistry and Dental Implants in Milford & West Haven CT

Rebuilding Your Smile One Tooth At A Time

A healthy bite is essential to a balanced diet. Many oral diseases show a direct correlation with health conditions that affect the rest of our bodies. At Shoreline Dental Care, we aim to help our patients and their families keep their teeth strong and healthy for life.

Whether it’s through restoring or replacing your worn out teeth, we have options for everyone.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are titanium posts implanted in your jaw that act as artificial “tooth roots”, permanently anchoring your new tooth, bridge or denture. Your replacement tooth will be carefully crafted to look natural and fit into your smile seamlessly.

Composite (White) Teeth Fillings

Composite fillings bond closely with your tooth, unlike older silver fillings that have to be “wedged” into place by notches cut into your enamel. This allows us to preserve as much healthy tooth structure as possible. They also come in a variety of shades and hues, so that we can match your new restoration to blend with the enamel around it.

Customized Dental Crowns

A crown protects your tooth, like a helmet. When everyday biting or chewing forces may cause fractures, the crown allows you to continue using the tooth as normal. We typically recommend crowns when teeth have suffered from problems related to:

  • Large areas of decay
  • Broken or old large metal fillings
  • Excessive wear from grinding or sleep apnea
  • Root canal therapy

Restorative Dentistry Treatments for Children

Pediatric tooth decay is one of the most common ailments that affect children. What most people don’t realize though, is that baby teeth decay at an alarmingly rapid rate and the infection can spread to other parts of the body.

Our dentists aim to diagnose concerns as early as possible, so that it’s easier to manage them. When treatment is needed, we offer pediatric dentistry services like white fillings, orthodontics, and crowns.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Due to their location, the 3rd molars (“wisdom teeth”) can easily become infected or impacted within the jaw. This can lead to secondary problems like pain, tooth crowding, or decay of the adjacent teeth. Removing you or your teen’s problematic wisdom teeth can help you to avoid unwanted complications later on.

Denture Options

A denture makes it possible to easily replace all of your missing teeth with one prosthesis. Whether it’s a partial removable denture, full plate, or an implant retained prosthesis, our dentists will work with you closely to design a new smile that helps you to feel comfortable and confident.

Root Canal Treatments

Outside view of Shoreline Dental Clinic where patients visit for general care and specific needs like dental implants.Abscessed teeth or severe toothaches are often an indication that some type of trauma or infection has impacted the nerve of a tooth. Once this occurs, our teeth naturally begin to die from the inside-out. Discoloration is a common side effect. Fortunately, with a root canal we are able to remove the infected nerve and fill the inside of the tooth, so that it continues functioning properly.
