Tooth restoration entails different methods and ways with which dentists replace and/or restore your missing or damaged teeth. Tooth decay due to cavities and tooth fracture remain the main culprits when it comes to restorative dentistry. Restorative procedure could involve one of the following procedures:
Most common and widely practiced dental restoration procedure, damaged tooth are filled with materials such as gold, silver, and amalgam in addition to tooth colored plastic and glass materials commonly referred to by dentists as composite resins.
Simply put, this is a tooth cap that goes over the tooth in order to restore its size, shape, strength, and appearance. It can also be used to cover a dental implant.
Anchored by a crown on either side to be later permanently cemented into place, bridges are used to fill the gaps created by missing tooth. They are life-like and discreet, and bring symmetry back into your smile.
These are manmade tooth roots. They are inserted into the jawbone, once in place; a crown is attached to the metallic root, which acts as the replacement tooth.
These are detachable replacement for missing teeth, or to remove teeth that are beyond repair. These dentures are made from acrylic resin, and are attached to titanium roots, which are inserted into your jawbone.
