Restorative dentistry can restore your smile’s appearance. Like the name suggests, restorative dentistry is focused on saving and preserving natural teeth as much as possible to give patients the opportunity to have teeth that look great and work well too. Restorative dentistry is also about regaining the health and strength of your teeth and gums.
Modern technology allows dentists to offer more options for restoring a tooth back to its normal appearance, shape, and function. If your teeth are worn, broken, or damaged from grinding, we can repair them with restorative treatments. Dental crowns, inlays or onlays can fix the shape and size of a broken tooth. We’ll return your great smile and restore your self-confidence.
If you need a restorative treatment, you can be confident that we will discuss all the available options with you. Providing you with excellent care is our top priority when creating your amazing smile.
Reasons for Restorative Dentistry
There are many reasons why you may need restorative dentistry. Some popular ones include:
- Replace missing teeth
- Fill-in spaces between teeth
- Correct or improve an improper bite
- Prevent the loss of a tooth
- Repair decayed and damaged teeth
- Replace old dental treatments
- Restore normal biting and chewing
From minor restorations to the most extensive, complex cases, dentists offer many restorative treatments to regain the health and strength of teeth.
Types of Restorative Treatments
Fillings are a common method used to repair cavities. When your tooth has a cavity, your dentist removes the damage and cleanses the area. A filling is then placed over the tooth. These days, composite fillings are commonly used. Unlike amalgam fillings, composite is metal-free. Tooth-colored fillings provide natural-looking aesthetics and excellent durability.
Crowns are proven ways to rebuild a smile after damage to the teeth or after some teeth are lost. A dental crown, is used to restore a damaged or decayed tooth. The crown is placed over the natural tooth. Designed to support the natural structure of your tooth, crowns can also help you chew and bite better, which can positively impact other bodily functions, including your digestive system. Crowns are also used after root canal treatments when a discolored or stained tooth needs to be restored to its natural appearance.
If you are missing teeth, dental implants provide an effective solution. Implants are an alternative to dentures. Dental implants are safe and a useful way to restore full functionality in your mouth.
Dental bridges are designed to replace missing teeth filling in a gap in your smile. Specialized crowns support traditional bridges, which are attached to both sides of an artificial tooth. Dental implants may also support bridges for increased stability and durability. As with all dental restorations, dental bridges are custom-crafted to look absolutely natural among your natural teeth.
Inlays and Onlays are solutions for damaged or decayed teeth that need more repair than a simple filling provides, but less than a crown. Inlays and onlays are commonly made of porcelain, gold, or composite resin. Inlays and onlays are bonded to the damaged area of a tooth. An inlay, which is similar to a filling, is placed on the chewing surface of a tooth between the points. An onlay is similar to the inlay, but it’s typically bigger, extending out over at least one point of the tooth.
A dentures is a single-piece prosthesis that can replace most or all the teeth in your upper or lower arch. This restoration is held in place by temporary adhesive or designed to attach to dental implants for increased stability for eating, smiling, and speaking.
Full Mouth Reconstruction:
A full-mouth reconstruction is a custom combination of treatments used to restore full functionality to a less than perfect smile. A full mouth restoration allows to chew, speak, and smile with confidence.
