Restorative Dentistry Gainesville
Rebuild Your Smile with Long-lasting Results
It's easy to take a mouth full of healthy teeth for granted. Every day, our teeth and gums are the foundations of seemingly simple functions such as eating and speaking. However, when you experience damage to your teeth as a result of injury or decay, or complete tooth loss, the value of a comfortable, functional smile becomes all too apparent. Drs. Ann Pomeranz and Chris Williams help their patients regain a healthy, beautiful, and functional smile through restorative dentistry treatments at their Gainesville, Florida office. Whether you have a single tooth in need of restoration, or an entire smile in need of careful, comprehensive attention, our doctors can provide the treatments you need.

Dentures: If you have lost most or all of your teeth, dentures can restore your ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. These custom-made prosthetic teeth are designed specifically to fit your mouth and achieve a natural appearance. While traditional dentures rest on the gums, held in place with a mild adhesive, we now offer dentures supported by dental implants, which provide unparalleled stability, as well as numerous benefits for the bone structure of your jaw. Schedule a consultation with our dentists to learn more about how we can restore your smile with dentures.
Porcelain Crowns and Bridges: If you are missing a tooth, or if one of your teeth has undergone a root canal, custom-made crowns and bridges can help your smile look complete again, and help balance your bite. A bridge can fill a gap between two teeth with a pontic, or artificial tooth, by anchoring to surrounding teeth. A crown, on the other hand, encapsulates a damaged or decayed tooth to protect against further decay. Our crowns and bridges are made from porcelain fused to zirconium. This combination provides strength and a natural appearance. These restorations do not involve the silver margin (visible near the gumline ) associated with crowns made from porcelain fused to metal.
All of our restorations are created with the help of trusted area laboratories. We use digital impressions of your teeth to provide the most accurate blueprint for your crown, bridge or dentures.
TMJ Treatment: Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders are marked by complications involving the jaw joints on either side of the face, the jaw bone itself, and surrounding muscles. It can often result in neck pain, headaches, and difficulties chewing or biting. We offer special custom-made mouthpieces to be worn at night. This prevents you from clenching your jaw, relieving these symptoms and helping to correct your bite.
Fillings : When a cavity develops, the decayed portions of the tooth must be drilled out, and a filling agent must be used to fill the remaining void. We offer tooth-colored fillings, which restore a natural appearance to the tooth. In some cases, an amalgam filling may be a more suitable choice to provide strength and longevity.
Dental Implants : Dental implants are titanium posts surgically implanted in the jaw to provide support for dentures, crowns, and bridges. In addition to providing outstanding support for restorations, they also help preserve the integrity of the jaw bone and prevent tooth migration. We believe in a teamwork approach to dental implants, and we serve as the quarterback. We refer the placement of dental implants to a trusted surgeon in the Gainesville area, and we restore the implant in cooperation with area laboratories.
Full-Mouth Reconstruction : Depending upon your needs, we can combine any of these treatments to rebuild your smile. Drs. Pomeranz and Williams, with the help of their trusted area specialists, can restore health, comfort and aesthetics to your smile.
