Restorative Dentistry

The term “restorative dentistry” refers to the integrated management of oral health problems and restoring the mouth to a functional and esthetic state.  Many of the procedures are also covered by the dental specialty of prosthodontic dentistry, including fillings, veneers, crowns, bridges, full and partial dentures and dental implants.

The following is a list of common general restorative procedures.

  •  DENTAL CROWNS – Crowns are used to cover damaged, cracked, chipped teeth, or to generally restore teeth. When cemented into place, they fully cup over the portion of a tooth which lies at and above the gum line.Dentists will match the color of your teeth to give you a natural look and feel.
  • CROWN & BRIDGEWORK – A dental bridge is a custom device anchored to neighboring teeth that replaces one or more missing teeth. A tooth or teeth replaced with bridgework are replaced by a natural-looking prosthetic (replacement) that is held together by the teeth on either side of the missing one(s). Crowns and bridges are most commonly prepared from high quality materials such as semiprecious or precious metals, porcelain, or a fused combination of the two. Your dentist will take into account esthetics, function and tissue compatibility when selecting the material most suitable for your teeth.
  • ESTHETIC FILLINGS – While performing anesthetic filling, damaged teeth tissue (dental decay, old fillings) is being restored directly in mouth as well as the form and color of teeth is improved. Taking into consideration what dental surface is damaged and what result is expected, the dentist chooses the filling material with qualities that are specific namely to this one. One has to estimate while restoring a big dental damage or defect which restoration way is more reliable and what is life cycle perspective of this tooth. Contemporary filling material of the most famous companies especially ones of ceramic restoration contain perfect mechanical qualities. Having analyzed it all, we can help you in choosing the most appropriate restoration way.
  • AIR ABRASION & MICRO DENTISTRY Air abrasion technology uses a fine powder called aluminum oxide under air pressure to blast out small cavities in teeth without the need for anesthetic or needles. Modern dentistry utilizes conservative treatment options for decay removal in teeth and avoids the use of needles and drills to remove decay and conserve “healthy” tooth structure. Through the use of newer more conservative options such as air abrasion your dentist can remove small cavities in teeth without removing the solid, healthy tooth enamel – and then place white fillings, often without using the dreaded needle.
  • COSMETIC DENTURES – Dentures are a common restorative device used to replace missing teeth for people with no teeth. They can also be used in mouths where several teeth need to be replaced. These types of dentures are called partials and are also a popular alternative to those who wish to conserve existing healthy teeth. Dentures allow for the ability to chew and bite properly, and prevent a sagging facial appearance.
