Dental Restoration & Extensive Dental Work in Philadelphia
Reconstructive dentistry (or restorative dentistry) is used when you have suffered damage to your teeth that affects its appearance or function. The quality of reconstructive dentistry will determine how attractive and natural your results will be. Dr. Kenneth Siegel has more than 25 years’ experience in giving his patients great-looking natural results. And now he is happy to utilize CEREC technology, which uses computerized imaging and a computer-controlled milling machine to create attractive and durable restorations within an hour.
Whether you have just one damaged tooth, a whole mouth full of damaged teeth, or tooth decay from cancer treatment, reconstructive dentistry can help give you back the attractive smile you once enjoyed—or maybe only dreamed of. During your initial consultation, Dr. Siegel will examine your teeth and recommend a number of restoration options based on the state of your teeth, including the health of individual teeth and the number of teeth you have lost. You can then pick the option that best fits your budget as well as your cosmetic and functional goals.
Experienced, Gentle Restoration Of Your Natural Smile
Dr. Siegel is a leader in the fields of cosmetic and restorative dentistry. He has restored the teeth of hundreds of advanced case patients back to full health and function, and he can help you even if your teeth are broken down or greatly deteriorated.
Dr. Siegel was trained at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dental Studies where he earned the title of Master Aesthetic Dentist. Dr. Siegel has also completed advanced courses in the specialty fields of Full-Mouth Reconstruction and Advanced Neuromuscular Dentistry, which enables him to diagnose and treat problems involving the muscles, nerves and joints in the face and jaw.
Experience counts when it comes to choosing a dentist for your restorative or extensive dental work. And Dr. Siegel’s expertise and excellent results have earned him an award as one of “America’s Top Dentists,” presented to him by the Consumer Research Council of America.
In the past, you had to send impressions away to the lab in order to get attractive, durable ceramic restorations made. Now CEREC Technology allows Dr. Siegel to create a perfectly-fitted dental crown or tooth restoration in about an hour while you wait.
CEREC Technology is a CAD/CAM (computer aided design/computer aided manufacturing) system that can make dental restorations while you wait so you don’t have to have a temporary crown or inlay placed, then come back to have the permanent one placed. Using digital imaging—no more plaster impressions!—Dr. Siegel can determine the exact shape of the restoration, which is then given to a computer-controlled mill that creates your restoration from a color-matched block of ceramic. It is made to the specifications Dr. Siegel provided for ideal fit, comfort, and function.
Studies have shown that CEREC restorations are as long-lasting as those made in labs the traditional way, and our patients are happy with their lustrous, natural appearance.
Effective Treatment Of Major And Complex Dental Work
