Bone Grafting

Bone grafts are a choice when a tooth is missing, as the bone and gum tissue surrounding the area may recede over time, leading to bone and tissue loss. Bone grafts provide a robust base for a bridge or implant: cadaver bone, animal bone, and synthetic and natural restorative materials.


Fillings are necessary for teeth after decay is removed or after a root canal. Silver amalgam and composite resin are popular types of filling materials. Silver amalgam is often cheaper, but composite resins can replicate the look of natural teeth more closely.


A bridge is a non-removable restorative dental device used when there is a gap between two or more teeth due to missing teeth. Cemented bridges are held in place with two teeth on either side of the missing tooth. Cantilever bridges are held in place with only one anchor tooth but usually can be used only when there is a relatively small space between the teeth.


Crowns are a prosthesis that completely encases an existing tooth to improve its look and strength. Crowns may be necessary after a root canal, large cavity treatment, or cracked tooth repair. Crowns are made from gold, porcelain-fused-to-metal, or all-ceramic material.


Complete and partial dentures performed at Colts Neck Smiles are used for replacing a full set of missing teeth or when the dentist cannot salvage many teeth. Typically made of acrylic resin, they come in removable and fixed varieties, depending on the patient’s needs and local dental anatomy. Dentures typically have replacement teeth adhering to a detailed gum-colored base that comfortably fits the patient’s mouth.
