Restorative Dentist Livingston, New Jersey
Good oral health is something that millions of people take for granted – that is, until it is compromised. When the teeth are damaged by disease, trauma, or years of wear and tear, once-simple tasks such as speaking and eating can become difficult and even painful. Fortunately, restorative dentistry offers a variety of treatments designed to return the mouth to its optimal health and ability to function.
At The Silverstrom Group, Dr. David Silverstrom, Dr. Gary Silverstrom, and their highly trained staff provide restorative dentistry services of uncompromising quality. From porcelain crowns to full-mouth restorations, we offer a variety of solutions to even the most severe oral health problems. Cases that other dentists might find too complex, we eagerly accept and even welcome.

Dental implants represent the most stable, durable, and realistic means of replacing missing teeth currently available. Composed of strong titanium, dental implants are surgically embedded into the jaw, where they act as artificial tooth roots. Once they have integrated with the jawbone, the implant posts can be used to support single crowns, dental bridges, and even full sets of dentures.
Unlike many dental practices, The Silverstrom Group is able to manage the entire implantation process, from beginning to end, in house. Rather than having to refer you out to qualified specialists, our dentists can surgically anchor the implants, craft and place the restorations, and manage your aftercare, all under a single roof.
In equal parts a cosmetic and restorative treatment, dental crowns return form and function to weakened, cracked, or otherwise badly damaged teeth. Crafted from medical-grade porcelain, dental crowns are placed over the entire visible surface area of a tooth to restore its appearance and protect it from further harm. Dental crowns are remarkably versatile; they can be attached to dental implants to replace missing teeth, cover teeth that have undergone root canal therapy, and provide support for dental bridges
Patients who are missing one or more of their natural teeth are generally good candidates for dental bridges. The typical dental bridge is comprised of an artificial tooth, or pontic, attached on either side to a dental crown. The dental crowns are attached to the teeth adjacent to the gap where a tooth is missing so that the pontic fills the gap. Depending on the number of teeth missing and the location of the gap within the mouth, a bridge may contain more than one pontic, or may position both supporting crowns on only one side of the pontic.
For patients who want to replace missing teeth without having to rely on surrounding healthy teeth for support, bridges may also be attached to dental implants.
Thanks to advances in dentistry, modern dentures are far more comfortable, stable, and natural looking than their counterparts of the past. At The Silverstrom Group, we craft dentures that fit snugly yet comfortably into the mouth, reducing the chances of slippage while speaking or eating. Our custom dentures can also be attached to dental implants to ensure the most secure and aesthetically pleasing results possible.
For patients with extensively damaged teeth, Drs. David and Gary Silverstrom can devise comprehensive treatment plans to restore the entire mouth. As with the more cosmetically focused smile makeover, a full-mouth restoration is comprised of multiple treatments, each customized to meet the unique needs of the individual patient. Restorative treatments may be augmented by cosmetic treatments such as porcelain veneers and teeth whitening to ensure the best results possible, in terms of both function and appearance.
