Restorative dentistry involves any dental procedures used to restore the structure and functionality of your teeth and can involve any number of different treatment options. To determine if you’re in need of restorative dentistry services, it’s important to first understand what these services may be. The term “restorative dentistry” encompasses a wide range of dental procedures, including fillings, Crowns, bridges, and implants. In short, restorative dentistry covers any dental procedure that is necessary to restore the function or appearance of your smile.
If you are considering a smile makeover, restorative dentistry may be the solution for you. Restorative dentistry can give you the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. If you have damaged, decaying, or missing teeth, restorative dentistry can repair and replace them. If you have ever thought about getting cosmetic dental work done but were concerned about the cost or pain associated with it, restorative dentistry may be a great option for you.
Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you, so it’s important to keep your teeth looking their best. Fortunately, modern dentistry offers a number of restorative options for repairing damage caused by cavities, decay, and even tooth loss. Fillings are the most common restorative procedure, and they can be made from either amalgam (metal) or composite (white) materials. If a tooth is too damaged to be repaired with a filling, a dental crown (or “cap”) may be necessary. A crown covers the entire tooth down to the gumline and protects it from further damage. In cases of tooth loss, a bridge can be used to “bridge” the gap by bonding crowns to the healthy teeth on either side. With today’s restorative options, there’s no reason to let damage ruin your beautiful smile.
