"I have to say anyone who has anxiety with going to the dentist, this is the place to go. My cleaning was absolutely amazing and I was told step by step what was going on. Liz totally rocked!! Today I had to get a cavity filled and getting a needle in my mouth didn’t sit easy with me. Dr. Dando was amazing and I didn’t even feel the needle!! Definitely coming back for more cleanings and hopefully no more fillings but I know they will take care of me if I do."- F.N. / Google / Mar 02, 2023

who is a good candidate for teeth reconstruction?
A good candidate for a dental reconstruction is someone who has lost a few teeth or multiple teeth and requires big fillings to be replaced. Any issues with decay or teeth that have become broken, cracked, or worn down can also make you a good candidate for reconstruction at Theodore E Dando DMD Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Hamburg, PA. You may have dental ailments or a genetic disorder, like ectodermal dysplasia (teeth that never develop), amelogenesis imperfecta (very small teeth), or dentinogenesis imperfecta (translucent or discolored teeth), which require extensive restoration. You might choose to replace old crowns or just want to enhance your mouth for better health or comfort. In more complex cases, your degraded teeth and gums may have created sunken cheeks or another visible facial deformity.
