It might not be immediately obvious to dental patients who only see their dentists after a cleaning, but the fact is that dentists are skilled dental servicesin many different facets of their job; this is especially true for Dr. Peyman Beigi and Dr. Nina Raesian, dentists at Milford Dental Group in Milford, MA. Some of the dental services they provide are outlined here.

Tooth Decay

Unfortunately, decay happens, and when it does, your Milford dentists are prepared to treat them efficiently. This could mean you'll need a simple filling or a more complex crown to remove the decay and protect the tooth. Root canals, also known as endodontic therapy, repair the inner portions of teeth that have been subject to decay. Extraction, or removal, of a tooth may be necessary in some cases, but our first priority at Milford Dental Group is saving your natural teeth.

Tooth restoration

If you're missing one or more of your natural teeth, your Milford dentist offers a variety of services that can help replace them, giving you a renewed and more functional smile. Crowns cover up teeth that have sustained damage from decay or injury. Removable dentures can fill in gaps from just one missing tooth or replace all of them. Crowns and bridges have a similar job, although they're designed to be more permanent. Dental implants are the most long-lasting tooth restoration; they become part of your dental anatomy and can last a lifetime with proper care.

Cosmetic treatments

Healthy teeth may still need some cosmetic updates to maintain an attractive appearance. You can brighten your smile with a whitening treatment or ask about bonding to fill in gaps or chips. Alignment issues can be repaired with orthodontic treatments like braces or Invisalign. Veneers can completely make over your smile by hiding flaws with cosmetic covers made of porcelain. At Milford Dental Group, many of our cosmetic services - like dental implants or crowns - overlap with the ones used to improve the health of your teeth as well.

We here at Milford Dental Group are here to help you have the best smile you can, so please contact us at (508) 966-7923 for questions about any of the services listed above! We'd be happy to talk with you.
