Restore Form and Function to Your Mouth

Restorative Dentistry Norfolk

Dr. Konikoff and his professional staff are dedicated to helping patients maintain the health and beauty of their teeth, long term. When patients do experience oral health complications, we’re here to get them back on track. Dr. Stephen Konikoff offers a number of restorative dentistry procedures out of his Norfolk practice that can improve both the look and function of your teeth. If you are interested in learning more about restorative dentistry, including the procedures described below, please contact Konikoff Family Dentistry today.

Dental Bridges

Dental Bridges

Patients who are missing one or more of their natural teeth many times choose to restore their smile with a dental bridge. By securing a natural looking replacement tooth between porcelain crowns that are attached to the teeth on either side of a gap, Dr. Konikoff and his staff provide patients with a longer lasting alternative to removable bridges. With proper care, dental bridges can last as long as ten years or more. Like porcelain veneers, dental bridges can help to prevent headaches and bite disorders. When a tooth is missing, the surrounding teeth tend to lean in toward the space where the tooth should be, causing potentially serious medical problems like TMJ (temporo mandibular joint) dysfunction. With a fixed dental bridge in place, the surrounding teeth will not shift out of place.

Implant Restorations

Dental implants are an excellent long-term solution to missing teeth. Patients who receive dental implants experience improved speech, are freed from the embarrassment of denture slips, and can finally eat whatever they want. Dental implants are as easy to take care of as natural teeth and made to last for many years. If you are missing one or more of your natural teeth, we’re confident that you’ll love the way you look and feel with dental implants.

Full and Partial Dentures

Full and Partial Dentures

When patients prefer not to undergo the surgical procedure required to provide them with dental implants, Dr. Konikoff and his staff are able to use their full-service dental laboratory to customize full and partial dentures. Dentures give back the freedom that comes with having a full set of teeth. And because Dr. Konikoff and his staff are fully equipped with the latest technologies and have the necessary experience to fashion dentures that fit comfortably and securely in your mouth, you’re less likely to experience denture slips.

Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain Crowns

If you have a tooth that is worn or decayed, natural looking porcelain crowns allow you to preserve the healthy portion of that tooth, lessening the likelihood of future costly dental complications. Porcelain crowns are a restorative dentistry option offered at our Norfolk office, to improve your smile by completely covering a damaged tooth with a “cap.” This cap is fashioned to match the color of your surrounding teeth. Porcelain is the material of choice for any dentist who hopes to give his patients fabulous smiles. Dr. Konikoff is experienced in applying porcelain crowns so you can be assured of an excellent result.

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays are more conservative approaches to restoring and preserving damaged teeth. These procedures are much like porcelain crowns in that they cover, protect and strengthen teeth. However, inlays and onlays are designed to treat teeth with less extensive damage by covering the top surface of the tooth instead of the entire tooth, as is the case with porcelain crowns. Inlays and onlays require two office visits. The damaged part of the tooth is first removed. Then, a cast is made of the tooth and a natural looking porcelain inlay or onlay is crafted to be bonded to the tooth during your next office visit. The damage covered with inlays is between the cusp tips of the tooth. Onlays are used when the damage is slightly more extensive, requiring the entire chewing surface of the tooth to be replaced. Inlays and onlays strengthen teeth and increase biting force, making it easier to eat certain foods. Dr. Konikoff and his staff are experienced in the application of inlays and onlays. It’s important that you contact a dentist who knows the finer details of these procedures in order to fully discuss your options and possibly avoid more invasive and costly procedures.

Family Dentistry

In addition to offering restorative dentistry to his Norfolk patients, Dr. Konikoff can provide care for your entire family. By treating and caring about families, Konikoff Family Dentistry is able to make a difference in the lives of parents and children alike and set them on a course that will save them the trouble, expense and possible embarrassment that comes with poor dental hygiene and care.

The caring staff at Konikoff Family Dentistry understands that children may be intimidated by the dental experience. That’s why it’s so important to have a friendly staff that can help ease children’s fears so they can get the care they need. Dr. Konikoff truly cares about children and takes pride in the fact that he has improved the lives of children in numerous countries though his longtime membership in Operation Smiles. Operation Smiles repairs facial deformities and advocates for long term dental care in countries around the world.
