Our available services include the following:

Dental Crowns


Dental crowns are designed to fit over the white portion of one natural tooth improving its strength, its shape, its appearance, and its function. There are several reasons why Dr. Vastardis may recommend having a dental crown placed, including:

 Treating a tooth that’s too severely decayed for a filling to treat
 Protecting a tooth that’s become significantly weakened over time from the threat of damage
 Restoring a tooth that’s become broken/fractured
 Improving the cosmetic appearance of a tooth that’s misshapen or unsymmetrical.
Dental crowns can also be vital components in root canal and dental implant procedures. Additionally, they’re used in conjunction with dental bridges as an option for tooth replacement.

Dental Bridges


Patients who find themselves dissatisfied with the looseness of dentures may prefer dental bridges as a sturdier, more permanent alternative. This restoration is designed to replace one or more missing teeth in a row along the same arch; healthy teeth on either side of the gap are required, as this is where our team will place additional dental crowns as “anchors” to hold the bridge in place.

Both crowns and bridges typically require two to three appointments to complete at Garden City Dentistry. During your first visit, Dr. Vastardis will prepare the tooth and take digital impressions to send to our dental laboratory; he will also place a temporary restoration so that the area is well protected in the interim. Once the finished crown and/or bridge is complete, you’ll be invited back so we can make any necessary adjustments and cement it in place.
