Have you ever wished to fix the chipped tooth or fill the gap from a pulled tooth, when you find yourself in front of the mirror? Of course yes! Restorative dentistry can save your smile by restoring your missing teeth or missing parts of your tooth structure.
Restorative dentistry aims at dental restoration by preserving dental structures, repairing broken or damaged teeth, and replacing damaged or missing teeth. This helps you to achieve a bright smile by saving the damaged or lost teeth and restoring the natural feel of the teeth.
Fillings are a minor form of dental restoration to fill a cavity. They are used to fill the affected area and seal it off from bacteria. Dental fillings are made of composite resin which protects your teeth from decay. They improve the structure of the tooth and last for many years with proper care.
Crowns are a custom-fit restorative dental treatment. Crowns are a tooth-shaped “cap” that is fitted over the top of the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, appearance, hold a denture in place, or cover a dental implant. Generally, crowns are made of ceramics and can be fabricated in the office to match the tooth color.
Dental Bridges are an excellent dental restorative option for those who are missing one or more teeth. They help to bridge the space created between two missing teeth. They are permanent, prosthetic teeth and can be fabricated in such a way that the resin matches the color of your tooth.
Dentures are a cost-effective way to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They are removable and excellent restorative options for a patient who requires immediate tooth replacement. They usually look and function like natural teeth. They are cleaned properly and kept in water when not in use.
Dental implants replace missing teeth for the long term. If you are missing one or two teeth, a dental implant restorative option is applicable. The dentist will insert an artificial tooth root into your jawbone. A dental crown will then be attached to the implant and both create the functionality of the natural tooth.
