RESTORATIVE DENTAL SERVICES
Boston Dental offers different options for restoring the health and brilliance of your smile: composite fillings, inlays, onlays, and crowns. Composite fillings are a simple solution for teeth restoration when enough healthy tooth structure remains after the removal of either decay, damage, or a poor existing filling. Using high-quality modern composite materials, we sculpt and mimic your natural tooth shape and structure. When damage or decay is larger, inlays, and onlays provide patients with a solid solution for preserving the remaining healthy tooth structure. They are beautiful, ceramic restorations – made at our design lab – that mimic the shape, details, and shade of the remaining natural tooth. Together, with your existing tooth structure, inlays and onlays complete the restoration of that once-damaged tooth.
Depending on the size of the restoration and extent of damage, full-coverage ceramic crowns may be recommended. They are permanent ceramic caps affixed on top of the remaining healthy tooth to restore, protect, and cover the entire tooth. Designed by our master ceramicists, crowns beautifully restore the tooth to its normal shape, form, and function. We also offer fixed dental bridges to fix missing teeth and veneers to custom design the smile of your dreams.

POINTS OF DIFFERENCE
At Boston Dental, building trust with our patients means being transparent about pricing. We participate in most major dental insurance plans and provide our patients with cost estimates prior to treatment. Please visit our payment and policies page for more information.
Following the application of a composite filling, patients can expect to be numb for two hours and should be careful of biting the cheek or lip during that time. Know that sensitivity is normal for the first few weeks.
Inlays and onlays are a more secure restoration option than a filling, which your dentist may recommend depending on the extent of damage to the tooth.
An inlay resembles a filling and fits into the chewing surface, as well as the cusps. An onlay, best known as a ‘partial crown’, is a larger restoration piece that often covers the surface, cusps, or sides of a tooth. Either option is made of the strongest porcelain materials and bonded to the tooth by trained professionals.
This full-coverage restoration option is a meticulously crafted option to restore the shape, form, and function of your smile. Using high-quality ceramic, our master ceramicists design your crown to look, feel, and act like your existing teeth.
