There are many dental procedures that can help you achieve the smile you love. If your oral issue includes missing teeth, damaged teeth, gapped teeth, etc., we have the solution for all! If you wish to restore your tooth's health, then any of the following restorative dentistry services may be helpful.
A dental filling is one of the most common restorative procedures available in dentistry. A dental filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a dental filling.
A dental crown is a type of dental restoration used to protect a tooth from further damage or decay. Dental crowns can be fabricated using a wide variety of materials, such as porcelain, gold, and composite resin. A dental crown is used after a dental restoration, like a dental filling or after extraction. Once complete, a dental crown securely covers the visible portion of the tooth.
A dental bridge consists of two dental crowns, which are bonded to the teeth on either side of the missing tooth. The crowns hold the bridge in place, which is anchored to the crowns.
Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth. The implant itself is a tiny post that is surgically placed within the jawbone. Once it has healed, it is topped with an artificial tooth. Patients who have dental implants can expect to enjoy restored oral function and appearance. They can also eat and speak normally.
Dentures are removable oral appliances that replace missing teeth. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
Dentures are fabricated out of metal, acrylic, or flexible resin. Modern dentures are lightweight, comfortable, and natural-looking.
Dental veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic that are designed to cover the front of a tooth. They improve the appearance and function of the tooth.
Dental veneers are crafted in a dental lab. This process can take several weeks. In the meantime, the dentist will place temporary veneers on the teeth. These veneers can be removed by the dentist before permanent veneers are placed.
