What is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative Dentistry is the dental practice that is designed to preserve as much of your original smile as possible through teeth repair and teeth restoration procedures. Some of those procedures include:
Dental Crowns – Crowns are a great way to restore your tooth. If you’ve had a break or a large cavity and need your tooth restored, a crown may be the best option for you.
Dental Implant Restorations – If your broken tooth is too damaged to save, a dental implant provides a great option for restoring full functionality to your teeth.
Bridges – Are you missing teeth? Bridges are a series of porcelain dental crowns that can close the gap by cementing a crown between two adjacent teeth.
Dentures – Dentures work well when you’re missing teeth or a large portion of your teeth. Dentures return functionality to your teeth and can be secured with implants.
Tooth-Colored Fillings – Tooth-colored fillings are a great way to restore a chipped tooth that has a cavity. With tooth-colored composite fillings, it’s hard to tell that work has been done!
Root Canals – If your tooth is infected or compromised, you may need a root canal to save the tooth and restore its functionality.
Dental Veneers – Have your teeth lost their luster? Do you have a chipped tooth or gaps in your teeth? You can restore the look of your teeth with porcelain veneers.
Inlays & Onlays – Inlays and onlays provide a way to restore a tooth that has a cavity. The composite fillings can be made of tooth-colored material.
Dental Fillings – This is the most common of dental restorations. Dental fillings are used to restore and strengthen your teeth when your they have cavities. The fillings material can be made of composite-resin, gold, silver, or tooth-colored plastic.
