What is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry involves returning damaged, decayed, or lost teeth to their original, healthy appearance and function. Being able to chew, speak, and smile with healthy teeth helps patients regain their quality of life and stop worrying about their teeth. If you have damaged, missing, or decayed teeth, restorative dentistry gives you options on how you can reclaim your lost smile.
Restorative dentistry includes a variety of procedures that range from simple to complex. Treatments we provide in our office include:
Composite fillings, also known as tooth-colored fillings, are popular in general and family dentistry due to their natural appearance. Composite fillings match the color of your teeth, making them a cosmetically pleasing option for filling cavities.
A porcelain crown, often used after a root canal procedure, fits over the existing tooth like a cap, completely covering the natural tooth and providing structure and protection. When a tooth is worn down, decayed, or chipped enough to affect the whole tooth, a crown helps restore its natural, healthy appearance and function.
Dental bridges ‘bridge’ the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge has a crown for the neighboring or anchoring tooth on either side of the gap – these are called abutment teeth – and false teeth are attached in between to create the bridge. This restores function and aesthetics, eliminating any gap.
Dental implants are a long-lasting solution for replacing missing teeth. They consist of a titanium post surgically placed into the jawbone beneath the gum line. This post is a sturdy anchor for a replacement tooth (crown) or a bridge.
Mini dental implants are a smaller, less invasive alternative to traditional dental implants. They are an excellent solution when a patient lacks sufficient bone mass in their jaw to support full-sized implants. Despite their smaller size, mini dental implants can provide a secure base for dentures or replace missing teeth, offering improved stability and comfort compared to traditional removable dentures.
Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They come in two types: complete and partial. Complete dentures are an excellent choice when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures work when some natural teeth remain.
Benefits of Restorative Dentistry
Restorative dentistry has many benefits that improve not only your oral health but also your self-confidence.
Restorative dentistry focuses on protecting as much natural tooth structure as possible, supporting your original teeth as they chew, speak, and smile. It provides options for filling gaps due to lost teeth – preserving your smile and your quality of life.
Restoring your smile not only improves the appearance but also the function of your teeth. You can chew and speak properly once more, allowing your smile to function in your daily life entirely.
Missing teeth can be frustrating and embarrassing, but restorative dentistry can restore these oral problems and keep your smile looking and feeling healthy. Restoring your smile enhances your appearance and gives you the confidence to freely flash your smile for all to see.
