When you have your teeth extracted or damaged because of events such as injuries, accidents, disease, or others, our dentist may suggest various restorative dental procedures to treat your condition. We perform different types of restorative procedures at our clinic.
Importance of Restorative Dentistry
1. Restorative dental procedures are used to fill empty spaces in your mouth to keep your teeth aligned.
2. These procedures make it easy to maintain proper dental care and oral care habits and prevent the build-up of plaque, bacteria, tartar, and other substances.
3. Missing teeth impact your health, appearance, and self-esteem negatively. Restorative dentistry procedures solve all these problems, thus building your confidence and improving your smile.
Types of Restorative Dentistry Procedures
They are the most versatile option for dental restoration. Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that help you surround an entire tooth. Our dentist recommends them after a root canal or even to protect your chipped or cracked teeth. We use natural-looking ceramic and ceramic on metal to give you a more natural appearance from this procedure.
They are thin, wafer-like shells used on the front surface to restore chipped, uneven, cracked, or even stained teeth. We customize dental veneers after considering the shape, size, and color of your teeth and further bond them with the original enamel.
We may recommend a dental filling to restore cracked or decayed teeth. After removing the decayed area from your teeth, we will use a durable filling material to fill the cavity/gap. A dental filling keeps tooth decay at bay.
You may opt for this procedure at our clinic if you are looking for minor restorations. It includes the application of tooth-colored composite resin to the gaps, chips, and stains of your teeth. Bonding is primarily done using composite resin. We further polish the material to match your remaining natural teeth.
A dental bridge is recommended to restore one or more missing teeth in your jaw. This procedure fills the space between your teeth, thereby providing you with a more natural appearance. The treatment involves creating a crown on either side and then placing a false tooth in between.
A titanium implant is used by our dentist to position a prosthetic tooth root under the gumline as a replacement for your missing tooth. After this, we will use a synthetic tooth (crown) to attach to the post. Implants are a long-term treatment option and the closest replacement of natural teeth.
