Restorative dentistry involves procedures that repair, replace, or maintain a tooth. The restorative procedures are cavity fillings, root canals, and dental implants. Restorative dentistry can have two objectives: restoring the teeth’s function and restoring their appearance. There are cases where it’s one or the other, and there are cases when it’s both.
Restorative dental procedures have many advantages, so they are among the most commonly performed procedures by dentists.
Benefits of Restorative Dentistry include:
A dental crown covers one or more of a person’s natural teeth. Covering the compromised tooth improves its color, shape, and size, as well as its appearance and function. If a cavity is too large to fill with a filling, if your tooth is cracked, if you undergo a root canal, or if you merely want to improve the appearance of a tooth, you may need a crown.
Dentures are dental prosthetics that replace some or all of a patient’s natural teeth. Dentures come in various shapes, styles, and compositions and are often part of a full mouth reconstruction. Our dental professionals at Couture Dentistry understand how important it is to patients that their dentures are comfortable, attractive, and functional.
Composite fillings provide an aesthetic solution for patients who value their filling, with the added benefit of preserving more of the tooth’s structure than metal fillings. Tooth-colored fillings help to strengthen teeth while providing clean, translucent surfaces. They last a long time and are stable.
Dental bridges are an effective and trusted treatment option for patients with missing teeth. There are four common types of bridges: fixed bridges, removable bridges, and crowns. Each end of a traditional bridge is attached to a dental crown. The type of bridge you need depends on your needs.
Periodontal disease affects many people at some point in their lives. Periodontal disease develops when plaque build-up on the teeth, causing inflammation in the gums and eventual receding gums. Gum disease can lead to weakened or loose teeth, bone deterioration, and even tooth loss if left untreated.
The decay will likely need to be treated through root canal therapy if it has reached the inner portions of the tooth. Several benefits of having a root canal include preserving teeth that might otherwise need to be extracted. Crowns are often used to restore the treated tooth.
