Do you need to replace a missing tooth? A popular restorative dentistry measure is to have a dental implant placed. With this process, a small titanium screw is inserted in the socket of the missing tooth. Over time, the jaw bone and dental implant will fuse together to create a stable foundation for a realistic looking crown that will take the place of the tooth. Speak to Dr. Cohen about this procedure to discover if you are a good candidate!
Would you like to replenish multiple teeth? Visit Trumbull Smiles to obtain a partial or full denture ! A partial replaces one to three teeth in a row and is clipped to other natural teeth in order to stay in place. A full denture takes the spot of all the teeth in the upper or lower gums and maintains its spot with suction and denture cream. We can measure your mouth to provide well-fitting dentures or partials for your needs.
Want more permanency in your bite? If so, we can utilize crown and bridge therapy to restore your smile. This technique allows Dr. Cohen to place a dental prosthetic in your mouth and affix it to the teeth that are adjacent to the gap in your gums. This can be used for spaces created by one to three absent pearly whites.

Dental crowns are one of the most common restorative procedures recommended to patients because of their versatility. This customized “cap” is designed to fit over the remaining structure of a natural tooth that’s struggling in some way, such as when:
- A tooth is heavily decayed and cannot be improved with a typical filling
- A tooth has been injured and needs support
- A tooth is weakened and has a high risk of fracturing in the near future
- A tooth has been lost and replaced with a dental implant that now needs coverage
- A tooth has been treated with root canal therapy
The crown both protects the natural shape of the original tooth while replenishing its appearance, shape, and ability to function properly.
Instead of traditional amalgam, Dr. Cohen corrects the damage caused by cavities with a much more flexible and aesthetically pleasing material: tooth-colored composite resin. Composite resin comes in several enamel-like shades, which means we can match it very precisely to your smile’s natural color. The lack of metals also means that your new addition won’t react strongly to changes in temperature when eating, resulting in more day-to-day oral comfort.
