If you’re living with damaged or missing teeth, Dr. Brian Crupi has a number of effective treatments to restore your smile and improve its aesthetics. This is referred to as restorative dentistry.
Our restorative care doesn’t just fix the way your smile looks, however. Dr. Crupi features professional treatments to restore your smile to full function, allowing you to eat your favorite foods in comfort. We use these realistic restorations so you can look and feel your best.
Dental implants are attractive prosthetic teeth that will never come out. That’s because Dr. Crupi surgically attaches the implants to your jawbone for a firm hold that can’t be matched by other restorations. We have implant solutions to restore any number of missing teeth.
We use a color guide, guaranteeing your implant will match your teeth, blending in perfectly with your smile. Dental implants provide outstanding chewing power, allowing you to eat your favorite foods without pain or discomfort.
Dental implants are the only restoration that stimulates natural jawbone growth, enhancing your oral health. They also help prevent gum disease by eliminating spaces where dangerous bacteria can accumulate.

A dental crown is a cap that Dr. Crupi attaches to a tooth that’s severely damaged by decay or physical trauma. It protects the tooth, sealing out bacteria to prevent future infection. All of our crowns are made from porcelain, a strong material that sparkles in the light like a natural tooth.
Your crown is custom-made to look just like one of your natural teeth — your friends won’t even notice it.
In addition to preserving a cracked or broken tooth, a crown can also enhance its shape, color, and alignment. Sometimes, a crown is used to restore a severely stained tooth that’s resistant to whitening treatments. In many cases, Dr. Crupi will use a crown to fix a small, poorly-shaped, or misaligned tooth. Crowns can also restore a tooth after root canal therapy.
A dental bridge is an effective way to replace a missing tooth, allowing you to eat and speak comfortably. If you have a missing tooth, Dr. Crupi will attach dental crowns to the teeth on each side of the gap. Then he’ll secure the bridge in place by bonding it to the crowns with a special dental adhesive.
If you have two or more adjacent teeth that are missing, Dr. Crupi may recommend restoring your smile with an implant-supported bridge. Instead of using dental crowns, an implant-supported bridge is held in place using dental implants. This provides outstanding comfort and chewing power.
Full and Partial Dentures
Dentures are removable prosthetics that take the place of one or more missing teeth. Today’s dentures are made from advanced acrylic material, so they’re very strong and they look just like your natural teeth.
Dr. Crupi can restore any number of missing teeth using dentures. Full dentures replace a whole arch and partial dentures — often referred to as partials — restore one or more missing teeth. Full dentures are held in place using natural suction and partials are fastened to adjacent teeth with a metal clasp.
