Restorative Dentistry Q & A
What is restorative dentistry?
Your tooth structure might be damaged or missing as a result of decay, deterioration, fracture or trauma, or other damage to your tooth.
Restorative dentistry can restore the optimal aesthetics and functioning of your smile.
Why would I choose restorative dentistry?
- If you have missing teeth
- If you’re not happy with the function and cosmetics of your smile
- If your regular dentures keep falling out or become uncomfortable
- If you’d like to improve your speech
What are some of the restorative dentistry treatment options?
Inlays and onlays
Your dentist carefully bonds inlays or onlays to your tooth. Special dental materials, such as gold, tooth-colored porcelain, or unique dental composite, are used to create your inlays or onlays.
Dentures can be attached to dental implants, which are artificial replacement tooth roots or metal rods or posts typically made from titanium. Your dentist surgically implants these replacement tooth roots into your jawbone, and over time, your jawbone and your dental implants fuse together.
