Naples Preventive Dentistry
No matter how well we take care of our teeth, many people, at some point or another, experience dental injury or decay. Don’t worry, though – here at Galleria Dentistry, Dr. Gery Benza, Dr. Anthony Benza, and Dr. Chelsea Benza don’t believe in passing judgment. We only want to help you restore full form, function, and beauty to your smile so you can live your life to the fullest! With the help of our restorative dentistry services, you can find the perfect solution to your dental needs here at our Naples, FL location.
Our available procedures include:
Composite White Fillings
In the past, cavities were typically treated with metal amalgam fillings that stood out noticeably against a natural while smile. Today, we’re happy to let patients know that this is no longer the case. Tooth-colored fillings from our Naples practice are made from composite resin and precisely shaded to match your enamel for a truly seamless result. Additionally, they’re a more conservative treatment that preserves your natural tooth structure.
Crowns are an important cornerstone of restorative care due to their versatility. Our team can use them to revitalize teeth in cases of structural damage, severe decay, and even to repair purely cosmetic issues. We’ll take the time to design your new, porcelain crown so it provides your smile with both long-lasting durability and seamless beauty.
If you have a gap in your smile with healthy teeth on either side, a dental bridge may be the best reconstructive solution for you. Crafted from porcelain crowns that have been fused together on either side of a replacement “bridge” tooth, your new bridge is securely anchored into place with the help of additional crowns that fit over nearby teeth, creating a sturdy, lifelike final result.
Dentures & Partials
Dentists have been using dentures for hundreds of years, and today, many patients still enjoy their ease and affordability. At Galleria Dentistry, we create dentures to be an ideal match for your unique smile resulting in maximum comfort. Full dentures are used to replace an entire arch of teeth, while partial dentures replicate a unique arrangement of lost teeth. Both options are removable allowing for easy cleaning and comfortable rest.
Just because a patient has dentures, doesn’t mean that they don’t still need to attend regular visits at Galleria Dentistry. Annual appointments are necessary so we can professionally clean and check the fit of the patient’s denture. One of our doctors also performs an oral cancer screening. Your denture may eventually become loose and need to be relined, and we’re happy to help you with that.
Implant-retained dentures are also available for patients interested in a sturdier reconstructive solution!
Root Canal Therapy
If you’re dealing with a tooth that is severely damaged or decayed, extraction may seem like the only available option. Thankfully, our Naples, FL office offers root canal therapy. Root canal therapy involves one of our doctors accessing the inner chamber of your tooth and removing the infected pulp before resealing the area. This procedure cleanses your tooth of destructive bacteria and minimizes the chances of further infection. A custom-made crown placed on top of the treated tooth restores any lost structure and completes your treatment. This process can be completed in one to three visits depending upon your specific case.
