Restoring damaged or missing teeth is crucial to your oral and physical health. Dr. Eduardo Torrado offers a wide range of restorative dentistry procedures at his office in Rochester, NY, to meet the various needs of his patients. Whether you have teeth affected by trauma or infection, or have lost teeth, Dr. Torrado can help.
Dr. Torrado places and restores dental implants at our office. Dental implants are the best possible restoration for missing teeth. These titanium posts replace tooth roots, halting jawbone deterioration and creating a stable foundation for crowns, bridges, or full dentures.
We provide patients with all-porcelain or porcelain-fused-to-metal dental bridges, depending on the patient’s individual needs and preferences. A dental bridge can replace one or several missing teeth. Traditionally, bridges are supported by two dental crowns, which fit over the surrounding healthy teeth. We also offer implant-supported bridges. With our CEREC® technology, we can create three-unit bridges in a single visit.
A dental crown can restore a tooth that has suffered damage as a result of decay or trauma. The crown encases and seals the tooth, protecting it from future damage. We use CEREC® to create and place custom porcelain crowns in a single appointment, eliminating the need for a temporary crown.
Dr. Torrado offers traditional, immediate, and implant-supported dentures. For traditional dentures, he sends impressions to a local lab. The lab technicians create a wax-up, which allows the patient to try it on and determine if it fits comfortably. Dr. Torrado can make adjustments if necessary. Immediate dentures are often placed if there are a few remaining teeth that require extraction. He utilizes AvaDent® to design and create dentures over the course of just two appointments.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are placed to restore decayed or damaged teeth that require more than a filling, but do not need more extensive treatment such as a crown. Inlays repair the chewing surfaces of the molars while onlays restore the chewing surface and one or more cusps, the protrusions at the corners of the tooth. With CEREC®, Dr. Torrado can place ceramic inlays or onlays in a single appointment.
At Torrado Dental, we believe restorations should be functional and aesthetic. For this reason, we only provide tooth-colored fillings. Composite resin closely matches the color of your natural teeth and is a strong and durable material. Unlike metal fillings, which can look unnatural and cause further damage to your tooth, composite fillings will strengthen and protect your tooth for years to come.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
For patients suffering from multiple oral health complications, Dr. Torrado may recommend a full mouth reconstruction. This customized treatment plan is completed in stages to address all issues involving a patient’s teeth and bite. It combines one or more treatments to completely rehabilitate your smile, restoring your health, comfort, and confidence.
