Crowns - A crown is a restoration used to restore a tooth to its original shape and strength when your tooth has broken, cracked or decayed past the point that a filling will work. Dr. Vascimini can match the color of your crown to your existing teeth perfectly. A crown can be made of all porcelain or a combination of metal and porcelain. The type of crown used will depend on your particular circumstance. You can be assured that Dr. Vascimini will recommend the best solution for you just as he would a member of his own family.
Bridges - A bridge is similar to a crown except that it is used to replace a missing tooth. If you have a tooth missing a bridge is an excellent way to replace it. From start to finish it usually takes only 3 to 4 weeks. In addition, the bridge can be made to blend into your own teeth so that you couldn't tell it from your natural teeth. A bridge can be used to replace more than one tooth as well. Dr. Vascimini will let you know how many teeth you can replace without compromising the teeth that are used to support the missing ones. There are times that a bridge doesn't make sense. If the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth have no fillings or decay the treatment of choice to replace the missing tooth is the use of an implant that supports a crown. You can read about these scenarios in the question and answer section of this website.

Let us find the right smile for you!
Bonding is a term used when you use a white filling for cosmetic purposes. Bonding is a process in which an enamel-like material is applied to a tooth's surface, sculpted to an ideal shape, hardened, and then polished for an ideal smile. This procedure can usually be accomplished in a single visit. Bonding is an excellent choice to repair a broken front tooth or close a space between teeth. It can also be used to reshape a tooth. A porcelain veneer is an ultra-thin, specially-made restoration that is bonded to the teeth. Veneers are stronger and have a longer life than bonding, but the process requires more time. Your particular situation and expectations will help Dr. Vascimini suggest which of these procedures is right for you. In fact, there are many times that the solution is a combination of bonding, veneers and crowns or bridges. With Dr. Vascimini's expertise you will be on the right track to your new smile.
If you need to have a filling but you do not want anyone to see it, a tooth-colored filling is your best choice. Tooth-colored fillings can be used in both your front and back teeth. When the area to be filled gets too large for a filling to be used, you can use a tooth colored onlay. A tooth-colored onlay will not only restore your tooth but will blend into your own teeth and become unnoticeable. Give Dr. Vascimini a call at 352-628-0012 to see what restoration makes the most sense for you.
Dr. Vascimini does most of his own extractions but knows his limits as well. If an extraction is beyond his experience he will refer you to a local oral surgeon.
Root canals have come a long way and Dr. Vascimini has taken many seminars on current-day endodontics (the art of root canals). Dr. Vascimini has equipped his office with state-of-the-art root canal equipment. Most root canals are done in one visit with no pain involved. Dr. Vascimini realizes that root canals have a bad reputation, however, a painless root canal gets very little press. Come and see if Dr. Vascimini can do your root canal.

Sealants are a clear, acrylic-like material that helps seal out decay-causing bacteria from the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. It is recommended that sealants be applied to a child's primary (baby) molars by the age of three or four years. Once the six year molars (the first permanent back teeth) appear, it is best to apply sealants as soon as possible. As a child's most cavity-prone years continue until the mid-teens, the pre-molars should also be sealed as they appear.
