Today tooth decay, lost teeth, damaged teeth, cavities or chipped teeth are some of the most common dental defects suffered by people. All these defects can be treated with the help of restorative dentistry. Restorative Dentistry provides a great range of dental services that can include:
If a tooth is extremely damaged, a dental cap, or crown, may be used to restore its appearance and strength. Crowns cover the entire tooth and seal chipped or broken areas. Porcelain crowns are widely used because they can be made to look very similar to natural teeth. The translucency of porcelain mimics the appearance of natural tooth enamel. Because porcelain crowns do not involve the use of any metal, the occurrence of a dark line next to the gums can be eliminated.
Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth in a patient’s mouth. A dental bridge usually consists of two crowns with a false tooth “bridged” between. The dentist places the crowns on the teeth adjacent to the gap for strength and stability. Other options for replacing missing teeth include partial dentures and dental implants.
Replacing one or more teeth is easier than ever before with the multitude of denture alternatives available to patients. Dentures are now more comfortable and affordable than ever before.
Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. A dental implant is a false tooth that is permanently secured to the jaw. A small titanium rod will be fixed into the jawbone, and once the jawbone has adhered to the structure, a false tooth will be attached to it.
