Restorative Dentistry Gets Your Smile Healthy 

Your teeth work pretty hard during your lifetime. Day after day, they tear through your food and undergo a great deal of stress to help you stay healthy. That’s okay because that’s what they’re designed to do.

But that doesn’t mean your teeth are completely indestructible. Here are some examples of damage your teeth can take on over time:


-Missing Teeth



-Worn Teeth

-Surface Damage

You still have time to schedule restorative treatment to get your teeth working properly before the year’s end. At Tocci Dental Associates, we can make all the repairs your teeth need so you can look and feel great all season long, and well after!

Restorative Dentistry Makes The Holidays More Enjoyable

During the holiday season, you probably have plans to attend parties and other special events. Because of that, it’s especially important to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy.

Here are some specific reasons that restorative dentistry make the holidays more enjoyable!

*Look Amazing For Photos & Holiday Parties!

You know how important it is to feel good about the way you look, especially when it’s time to socialize during the holidays. If you have several parties lined up, your teeth need to not only work like they’re meant to, but they should look good, too.

Fixing teeth that have flaws and imperfections with restorative dentistry can also have cosmetic benefits. That’s because our natural-looking dental crowns and veneers that hide damage also look amazing. You can smile for family photos and when seeing distant friends and relatives feeling relaxed and confident because your teeth look great.

*Enjoy Eating Christmas Dinner Without Pain!

This time of year, it’s common to find yourself attending lots of parties and family gatherings to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s. You not only have a chance to catch up with the people you love, but you also get to eat to heart’s content!

However, if problems with your teeth make chewing uncomfortable or painful, you can’t have a good time or enjoy the delicious food.

Restorative dentistry can keep that from happening. Whether you have a cavity that needs to be filled, or infection that needs to be eradicated, our team will do all we can to get you out of pain and make eating enjoyable again!

*It Prevents Damaged Teeth From Getting Worse!

Your tooth enamel can take on small chips or surface cracks over the years. This kind of damage to your teeth is not only unsightly, but it also puts you at more risk for bigger problems in the future.

Cracks and chips can grow larger and deeper, which means you’re more vulnerable to bacteria getting inside your tooth and destroying your oral health.

Dental fillings, dental crowns and bridges, and even dental veneers can all cover up those flaws and prevent them from getting worse over time.

Resolve To Get A Healthy Smile Again

Everyone can relate to that feeling of starting fresh with each new year. In fact, it’s why there’s such a surge in gym memberships and diet programs every January. There’s something so exciting about that shared goal of getting your health back on track.

As you add to that list of New Year’s resolutions, make sure your oral health makes the cut! At Tocci Dental Associates, we’re always here to help you reach your goal of a healthy, beautiful smile.

Whether you want to repair damaged teeth, or take things up a notch with cosmetic dentistry, we will do all we can to make 2018 a great one for your smile.
