What Is Dental Restoration?

Posted on 3/7/2022 by Office
What Is Dental Restoration?Dental restoration can seem like an intimidating term, but the goal of dental restoration is to fix teeth that have become damaged through wear or decay to the point where they no longer function well. Your dentist may recommend treatment to restore lost or damaged teeth, or your dentist may recommend treatment to protect damaged teeth from further damage. Dental restoration can be performed in conjunction with other procedures like dental implants or tooth extractions. In this blog post, we will look at what you can expect from dental restoration and what kind of treatment options you can get from our dentists.

Dental Crown

A crown, also known as a cap, can be placed over your tooth to cover and strengthen it. A crown restores teeth that have been weakened by decay or fracture, making them strong enough to use for chewing again. Crowns are commonly used to treat broken teeth or restore severely damaged teeth that are structurally not firm enough. During treatment, a dentist covers a damaged tooth with porcelain and then creates an impression of your mouth to make a custom-made dental crown.

Dental Implants

These are metal posts, usually, titanium implanted in your jawbone. Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, giving you a complete smile and better-eating abilities. They are the best for restoring missing teeth, and they require high hygiene standards.

Inlays and Onlays

Dental inlays and Onlays are tooth-colored restorations placed inside a deep cavity. The edges of an inlay or Onlay can be polished, making them very hard to distinguish from natural teeth. Inlays and Onlays are made of porcelain, ceramic, or resin and are extremely durable. They are highly resistant to stains caused by coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco.

Dental Fillings

Dentists use fillings to restore teeth that have been weakened by cavities. The dentist will remove any decay and then use your preferred material to cover the hole created in your teeth. For more details about dental restorations, call or visit our offices. Our professionals will tell you everything you need to know.
