General Dentistry

Family Dental Services in East Longmeadow & Northampton, MA

Our doctors and hygienists treat patients of all ages and with a variety of needs. We focus on prevention so the importance of regular exams and hygiene maintenance visits that help our patients keep their teeth and gums healthy is stressed. However, when restorations are required, we may suggest tooth-colored composite resin fillings and porcelain dental crowns for an esthetically pleasing appearance.
Our dental team caters to children as well as adults, making dental care for the whole family convenient and comfortable.

Crowns

Our goal is to give you the most natural looking smile possible. We want your dental restorations to be undetectable. When a tooth cannot be restored with a filling, a crown is a great option and a great crown will look and feel like your natural tooth. A dental crown is a cap placed over the part of the tooth that sits above the gum line. As one of EMA Dental’s restorative dentistry options, a crown is typically recommended to cover a tooth to restore its shape and size, to improve strength, and/or improve its appearance.

Bridgework

To replace one or more teeth in a row, a bridge is a great option. A bridge consists of one or more solid replacement teeth, called pontics, suspended between two crowns. To anchor a bridge, teeth on either side of the space, called abutment teeth, are fitted with the crowns. Bridges are fixed appliances so they cannot be removed by the patient at home.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Dental fillings are used to restore teeth that have been damaged by tooth decay. The development of tooth-colored fillings, also known as composite fillings, has provided dentists and patients with a safer and more attractive alternative to silver amalgam fillings. By precisely matching tooth-colored composite fillings with the natural color of your teeth, a skilled dentist is able to provide you with white fillings that are virtually invisible. Many patients also opt to have older amalgam fillings replaced with composite fillings. The removal of old amalgam fillings can provide patients with a more esthetically pleasing, silver-free smile.
