Restorative dentistry is a branch of dentistry focusing on replacing or restoring missing or damaged teeth. This section covers many procedures, ranging from treating cavities to restoring missing teeth. Our restorative dental services also extend to chipped, broken, or knocked-out teeth resulting from accidents, injuries, trauma, and other reasons.
Restorative dentistry also includes several prosthodontic, endodontic, and periodontic procedures that we may decide after examining your dental condition.
What are the Different Restorative Dental Procedures?
Dental fillings are made using materials like amalgam, silver, gold, porcelain, composite resin. We also use them to even out the surface of your teeth and improve your chewing and biting. Fillings replace the decayed portion of your teeth and help you maintain better oral health.
We may recommend dental bridges to replace one or more of your teeth. The procedure includes placing false teeth made using ceramic and filling the space of your damaged natural teeth. We also use bridges to eliminate gaps between your teeth, restore your bite, and stop the remaining teeth from shifting from their original positions. If you maintain proper oral hygiene, dental bridges may last a lifetime.
If you have decayed, damaged, or cracked teeth, a dental crown may be used as a restorative treatment to restore their shape, size, and appearance. Dental crowns are caps created to match the shape of your teeth. They are made in several materials like ceramic, porcelain, metal, porcelain fused to metal, etc. We fix them in place to blend the appearance of your natural teeth.
Restore Dental Implants
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that we fuse into your bone to support dental crowns further. We perform dental implant restoration to restore a patient's missing or damaged teeth and help them have a fully functional smile. During implant restoration, our dentist connects the prosthesis to the implanted root and places the artificial tooth or dental crown over the implant to serve as the permanent tooth.
We use dental bonding to restore one or more cracked, chipped, or discolored teeth. The procedure is non-invasive and can be finished in one sitting only. It involves using composite resin and then bonding it to your teeth. It is an affordable treatment option.
