Why Restorative Dentistry Matters
The Mouth-Body Connection
We take a holistic, health-oriented approach to restorative dental care. That's because studies have shown that overall health is linked to a person's dental health, and vice versa. As our patient, you can expect treatment that benefits both your oral health and your overall health.
Prevent Dental Problems Like Tooth Loss
Our team is focused on prevention rather than management. If we can provide a timely solution such as a filling, this can prevent the need for a costlier solution such as a dental implant-supported replacement tooth. However, if tooth loss can't be avoided, we are prepared to provide an outstanding solution.
Restore Oral Function
If you have significant dental damage, tooth decay, or missing teeth, your ability to eat and speak properly can be impacted. Restorative treatment can improve the health and function of your smile so you can eat and speak with confidence once more.
Chew Comfortably, Speak Clearly Contact Lakeview Dental For Beneficial Dentistry
Teeth that are weakened by cavities and disease can make basic functions like chewing and speaking difficult or even painful. Without the proper attention from a dental professional, your teeth can become more damaged and take a serious toll on your oral health.
Restore your ability to chew and speak comfortably with restorative dentistry from Lakeview Dental. Brian Hisrchfield, DDS, and Brenda Sous, DDS, can conduct a dental exam and recommend treatments you would most benefit from.

Hear From A Happy Lakeville Patient 5-Star Reviews
My experience was great. I had a complex issue that needed to be addressed. Dr. Hirschfield did an unusually comprehensive analysis of my problem. He then presented multiple options for treatment. The pros and cons of each were addressed. There was absolutely no upselling. I believe he put my welfare above his profits. He established a lot of confidence in me, that we would make an optimum decision for my care. The results were excellent. Everyone in the office were very pleasant to deal with. This is nice, but IMHO should not be a determining factor for the selection of a dentist. Dr. Hirschfield's approach, patience, and competence are most important.View on Google
Take a Closer Look At Dental Implants
Dental Implants Provide Significant Benefits
When you are missing teeth, the jaw loses the stimulation it once received from the tooth roots and can begin to atrophy. Dental implants act as replacement tooth roots to give the jaw the stimulation it needs to stop and prevent jawbone deterioration. Implants are the only dentistry treatment that can stop bone deterioration and prevent the need for bone grafting later.
At Lakeview Dental, your dentist can pair your dental implants with a crown, dental bridge, or dentures to restore the function and appearance of your smile. Dr. Brian Hirschfield has extensive training in implant dentistry and over 1000 hours of continuing education.

Dr. Hirschfield takes the time to explain the problems, the options, and the solutions. Together the patient and the doctor choose the action plan. Dr. Hirschfield's technical skills are unsurpassed and he is honest. He treats me with respect and the quality of his work is excellent. I can legitimately say it is unsurpassed because I have been to a lot of dentists. These two latest crowns fit well, feel good, and work great. I wish my real teeth felt this good.View On Google
I have been a patient of Dr. Hirschfield for the past 15 years. During that time both he and Lisa, my hygienist have helped me maintain my teeth through Porcelain Refills, crowns, and a severe case of TMJ. Needless to say, today, at 63, my teeth are in the best condition they have ever been. Thanks dental team! Nicely done.
Why Patients Choose Lakeview Dental
Our dentists treat one patient at a time, giving them quality attention and care. Since poor dental health can lead to more serious health issues in other areas of your body, our doctors focus on treatments that prevent disease.
Even after graduating from dental school and having many years of professional experience, both Dr. Hirschfield and Dr. Sousa continue their dental education through their associations with professional dental groups. As members of the American Dental Association, our dentists attend lectures and events discussing the latest advanced practice in dentistry.
Lakeview Dental is a family-orientated dental practice that provides comprehensive dental care for the entire family. We perform a variety of dental services on-site and have an office that is designed with patients of all ages in mind.
Our Lakeview dental office features large windows that overlook the beautiful Conesus Lake. Patients enjoy using wi-fi or watching TV while waiting for treatment. We believe in patient education so each treatment room is equipped with computers and TVs to view x-rays and review treatment offices. When it comes to your comfort Lakeview Dental is committed to maintaining a friendly, low-stress environment.
Save Your Tooth With a Root Canal
An untreated cavity can reach the inner portion of the tooth, leading to a root canal infection. Our dentists can perform a root canal treatment and save your natural tooth, avoiding the need for extraction.
If left unattended, the infection inside the tooth can spread to other teeth and affect your jawbone. After enough time, you can lose multiple teeth and bone tissue if tooth infections are not addressed.
Typically, a crown is used to cap the tooth and strengthen it after a root canal. If your natural tooth is too compromised to be saved, we can replace it entirely with an implant-supported crown.
Cosmetic Dentistry Can Complement Restorative Dentistry Results
Once you have completed the restorative treatments you need, you can expect that your smile will look more attractive. But what if there are lingering imperfections that don't affect the health of your smile? Porcelain veneers can mask discolored, misshapen, or misaligned teeth, giving you a healthier-looking smile. With proper care, your porcelain veneers can last 15 years or more. We can also provide teeth whitening to illuminate your remaining healthy teeth for an upgrade that helps you feel even more confident in your rehabilitated smile.
We Work with an Anesthesiologist to Enhance Patient Comfort
Patient safety and comfort are important. If you are receiving intravenous sedation, Dr. Hirschfield will have an anesthesiologist come to our Lakeville, NY, office to administer your sedation. This allows Dr. Hirschfield to focus on your dental care while the anesthesiologist focuses on administering the appropriate dosage and keeping you comfortable and safe.
What about Cost?
Materials & Technique
Our dentist can restore the teeth using composite materials or we can fabricate traditional dentures to keep costs lower for patients on a budget. In addition, lighter forms of sedation are less expensive, as well.
Financing & Insurance
We accept Compassionate Finance™ for patients that want to break up the cost of treatment. Our staff will also work with your insurance provider to get coverage for preventative and restorative care.

Always the best of care and staff may be different now but even so replacements are just as nice. Miss Lisa but had Nicole today. As usual for me I don’t anticipate having a new hygienist, but Nicole put this big baby at ease from the moment I met her until I left. She was just so nice and pleasant. Totally awesome.View On Google
After a hiatus because of no insurance, I went back to Lakeview Dental. Although they have changed a little, it is for the better. I believe I am better educated now and I am grateful to be back on a plan to keep my teeth healthy. Everyone is personable and great and they all do a wonderful job.View On Google

Restorative Dentistry FAQs
I need to see a dentist, but I'm afraid. What are my options?
We understand that many patients are afraid of pain and experience severe anxiety when they visit the dentist. We want patients to get the dental care they need without letting fear stand in the way, so we offer sedation dentistry at our Lakeville practice. Patients who are undergoing complex restorative dentistry procedures like dental implant placement or full mouth reconstruction may benefit from deeper forms of sedation such as intravenous sedation.
I want to repair my smile, but I'm on a budget. What can I do?
While some patients neglect trips to the dentist because they are nervous about pain, others forego dental visits because they are worried about costs. If you are on a budget, talk to our dentists. We can use affordable materials like tooth-colored composite resin to resolve issues with your smile while keeping costs low. We also offer flexible financing through Compassionate Finance™, which can make the treatments you need a comfortable fit for your budget.
I've always wanted a healthy, beautiful smile, but I think I'm too old for dental treatment...
Restorative dentistry is designed to repair or replace damaged, worn, or missing teeth for patients of all ages. It's never too late to let our doctors design custom dentures that look just like natural teeth, help you enjoy your favorite foods again, and give you the confidence you've been missing. Meanwhile, restorative dentistry can also improve your health by eliminating issues like gum disease and allowing you to eat a varied and nutritious diet.
My issues are mainly cosmetic. Is restorative dentistry right for me?
Restorative dentistry focuses on restoring the health and function of your smile. If your dental concerns are mainly cosmetic, cosmetic dentistry treatment options may be best for you. We offer a wide range of cosmetic treatments such as porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, and smile makeovers to give you the dazzling smile you have always dreamed of.
