Restore Your Smile And Your Quality of Life

One of the most important aspects of modern dentistry is restoring and maintaining a patient’s dental health because of the role it plays in both overall physical well-being and daily quality of life. We stress the importance of routine preventive care to keep your smile healthy and reduce the risks of decay and gum disease.

In our office, we believe in providing restorative dental treatment when needed. Teeth can become damaged or lost for a variety of reasons, even when a patient is diligent with their oral hygiene routine. Addressing a damaged or missing tooth is necessary for a functional and comfortable smile. Prevent the development of more complex dental problems down the road with a dental visit today.

Treating Damaged Teeth

Westborough Dental Associates will thoroughly examine a patient before recommending a plan of treatment for a tooth that has become damaged or diseased. Treatment options can include:

Teeth that are chipped, cracked, or broken can become further damaged or lost without treatment and may make it difficult to eat and speak normally. We can discuss the best options for restoring your unique smile and ensuring lasting dental health.

Replacing Missing Teeth

For patients who have lost a tooth, for any reason, our dentists will discuss the benefits of prompt replacement to avoid additional dental problems and limited treatment options. Whenever possible, we recommend the use of dental implants to replace teeth or secure a denture. Dental implants provide a permanent, life-like solution that will reduce bone loss in the jaw. We will enable you to eat and speak normally- without daily maintenance!

We understand the cost concerns that many of our patients have when it comes to their dental care and work with them to restore their smiles within their budget. In many cases, treatment can be phased to achieve results that will provide a lifetime of comfortable smiles.
