Restorative Dentistry

“Restorative dentistry” is that the term dental professionals use to elucidate how they replace missing or damaged teeth. Fillings, crowns (“caps”), bridges and implants are common restorative options. The goal is to bring back your natural smile and stop future oral health issues.

Fillings

Dental fillings are the foremost common sort of restorative dentistry. This feature is used to replace the decayed part of the tooth that causes decay. With the proper filling material, you’ll expect fillings to last several years and supply the looks and functionally of an intact tooth.

Crowns

The crown can be a tooth-shaped cap that the dentist wears on damaged, decayed or cracked teeth to restore its proper size, shape, beauty and strength. Like fillings, crowns are available in many different materials, the most popular of which is the colour of the teeth for a natural appearance.

Bridges

If you are missing one or more teeth, you may need a bridge. A false tooth takes the place of the missing one, and crowns on the adjacent teeth hold the bridge in situ. This eliminates the gap in your smile, restores a traditional bite, and helps keep your whole mouth healthy.

Implants

An implant is differently to exchange a missing tooth. A screw takes the place of the basis and anchors the implant in situ without the necessity to carve down the adjacent teeth and install crowns.

Veneers

Thin, semi-transparent porcelain shells called veneers bond to your teeth to enhance their appearance. You would possibly pursue this restorative dentistry option if you’ve got broken, chipped, discoloured, crooked, or misshapen teeth. Veneers can often improve the design of your smile in situ of more complicated, time-consuming procedures, like having to wear braces.

Composite Bonding

Composite bonding is beneficial for fixing these aesthetic problems to reinforce the design of your smile. The method involves chemically bonding a material to your existing tooth. Unlike crowns and veneers, little or no, if any, of the first tooth is removed.

Dentures

If you’ve got missing teeth and damaged gum tissue, dentures are an efficient thanks to restore your smile, prevent speaking difficulties, and make chewing easier.

Root Canals

When a tooth becomes so badly decayed that a filling isn’t enough, you would possibly got to undergo a passage procedure. This helps clean out decay from the basis of your affected tooth to eliminate painful toothaches and restore your oral health. After completing the procedure, the empty passage is crammed with a rubber compound called gutta percha. Then adds an onlay or inlay to the tooth, followed by a dental crown to revive the tooth’s appearance and strength.

Extractions

At dental office, we consider extractions an absolute pis aller . We always strive to save lots of a minimum of some of your damaged tooth with other procedures like root canals, fillings, and crowns. If your tooth is broken beyond saving, an extraction could also be necessary. Then other restorative dental options, including dental bridges and implants, can fill in the gaps in your smile without feeling uncomfortable.
