Restorative Dentistry

Restorative Dentistry is the term used by dental professionals to explain how they replace missing or damaged teeth. The goal is to bring back your natural smile and prevent future oral health issues.

Benefits of Restorative Dentistry include:
– Filling in empty spaces in the mouth helps to keep teeth in the right place.
– Replacing teeth helps to maintain good oral care habits, which can help prevent oral disease and plaque buildup.
– Missing teeth can affect your health, looks, and how you feel about yourself.

There are a few different treatment options your dental professional may suggest.

Crown
A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth and is ideal for patients with broken teeth or cavities. It is used to strengthen and protect your tooth structure. Most crowns are made of a hard, white substance to help them look natural like ceramic or porcelain fused to metal (PFM)

Bridges
A dental bridge covers or “bridges” the gap between missing teeth.¬†After you lose a tooth, your dentist may suggest that you get a bridge. A bridge can keep your other teeth from moving out of place and is kept in place by the two crowns which are set onto the teeth on either side of the gap.
