Reconstructive/Rehabilitative Dentistry

The strength, function, and appearance of your smile are all very important. When there are issues detracting from your smile – particularly issues that cause functional limitations or impact the health of the teeth and gums, a combination of treatments will be necessary to restore both beauty and strength.

Understanding Reconstructive/Rehabilitative Dentistry

At NYC Smile Design, reconstructive and rehabilitative dentistry goes beyond aesthetics; it’s about restoring full dental function and health. This comprehensive approach integrates advanced treatments and dental prosthetics to address a variety of dental issues, ensuring both the beauty and utility of your smile.

Understanding Reconstructive and Rehabilitative Dentistry: Are You a Candidate?

Reconstructive and rehabilitative dentistry focuses on repairing and restoring the function and appearance of your teeth, facial muscles, jaw joints, and gums. This field of dentistry addresses a range of issues and you may be an ideal candidate for restorative dentistry if you are experiencing one or more of the following conditions:

Missing Teeth: Gaps in your smile can affect your bite, speech, and facial structure. Dental implants, bridges, and dentures can replace missing teeth, restoring your smile and ability to chew and speak properly.

Severe Tooth Decay: Advanced decay can damage tooth structure, requiring fillings, crowns, or root canals to restore health and function.
Chipped, Cracked, or Broken Teeth: These can lead to further damage or infection if not treated.

Worn Down, Abraded Teeth: Clenching and grinding can wear down your teeth, affecting their function and appearance.

Enamel Erosion: Acidic erosion weakens teeth, making them more susceptible to decay. Worn enamel can lead to sensitivity and structural problems, often treated with bonding, veneers, or crowns.

Discoloration: Affects the aesthetics of your smile and may indicate underlying issues.
Misshapen or Crooked Teeth: Can interfere with bite alignment and make oral hygiene more challenging.

Gum Disease: Periodontal treatments help manage and reverse gum disease, preventing further damage to your teeth and supporting structures.

Gum Inflammation or Infection: This can lead to tooth loss and other serious health issues if not addressed.

Infected Tooth Pulp or Advanced Decay: Requires immediate care to prevent tooth loss and reduce the risk of spreading infection.

Receded Gums: Parafunctional habits, such as grinding or clenching, can weaken and cause gums to recede. This exposes tooth roots, leading to sensitivity and increased risk of decay and infection.

Trauma and Injury: Accidents or injuries that damage teeth and gums can be effectively treated to restore your dental health.


These issues not only compromise the look of your smile but also your oral and systemic health, potentially leading to conditions like hypertension or heart disease.

At NYC Smile Design, our restorative dentistry services aim to address these concerns comprehensively, restoring both the function and aesthetics of your smile while enhancing your overall health.
