Restorative Dentistry Using Conservative Techniques and Ultramodern Materials
Dr. Joseph Fusco offers a full range of restorative dentistry treatments at his Rockville Centre, NY, practice. With various treatment options, he can repair damaged teeth and fill in the gaps left by missing teeth. Dr. Fusco is committed to your comfort, safety, and lasting results. For this reason, he proudly uses biomimetic dentistry methods during all of his restorative procedures. This approach emphasizes conservative techniques that preserve as much of your natural tooth structure as possible. With this philosophy, your treatment can involve minimal discomfort and use advanced materials to provide restorations that will function like your natural teeth.
Dr. Fusco offers a number of restorative treatments that can rejuvenate your smile following tooth loss or other damage including:
Dental bonding is the most conservative restorative treatment option. Dr. Fusco can use this method to treat small cracks, chipped teeth, and dental erosion. Bonding can also strengthen weakened or compromised teeth. To perform the procedure, Dr. Fusco will place enamel-colored composite over your compromised tooth. After he shines a curing light at the material, it will harden. In this way, it will fill in structural blemishes and fortify your dental structure. Dr. Fusco will also shape the composite to provide a realistic look.
Dental implants are synthetic tooth roots made from biocompatible titanium. Fusing with your jawbone, dental implants will be fixed and stable, providing unrivaled support for lifelike dental restorations. The posts will also protect your jawbone health because they can halt jawbone tissue recession. Dr. Fusco can determine your candidacy for dental implants before referring you to an oral surgeon for dental implant placement surgery.

Caps and Crowns
Dental crowns, sometimes known as “caps,” can strengthen severely damaged teeth, including those with extensive decay. They are also an essential part of root canal therapy. Biomimetic techniques are especially important in the placement of dental crowns. Without these conservative methods, your dentist would have to remove up to 75 percent of your natural tooth structure. We can provide crowns made at a local lab or at a state-of-the-art facility in Turin, Italy. You can also choose from IPS e.max®, zirconia, and feldspathic porcelain. If a tooth is not damaged enough to need a crown, but it needs more than a filling, we also provide inlays and onlays.
If you have lost one or more consecutive teeth, a dental bridge can fill the gap in your smile and restore your oral function. These restorations are made of multiple crowns fused together. We can provide both traditional and implant-supported bridges. Using lifelike materials and conservative techniques, Dr. Fusco can rebuild your smile after tooth loss with realistic, durable results.
Dentures are a time-tested way to replace multiple teeth or an entire dental arch. There are two types of dentures: partial and full restorations. Both are removable and have plastic bases that will fit around your gums. A partial denture fills a large space in your smile by attaching to your remaining teeth with hidden metal clasps. A full denture will replace all of your teeth and is held in place by dental adhesive. Our lab crafts both types from advanced materials that offer a natural color and sparkle.

In addition to traditional dentures, we can also provide permanent implant-supported dentures. Dr. Fusco can attach an entirely new prosthetic to your dental implants. He can also convert your existing denture into an implant-supported restoration. In some cases, he can attach your denture on the same day as your implant surgery, immediately restoring your smile and dental function.
