Restorative Dentistry

We restore the function, integrity, and morphology of missing or damaged tooth structure. It not only rejuvenates your smile but also ensures the overall health of your teeth and gums. Here’s a closer look at some of the core procedures in restorative dentistry

FILLINGS

Dental fillings are used to treat cavities (or tooth decay) by “filling” the area where the decayed material was removed. Once the dentist removes the decayed portion of the tooth, the cavity will be filled with a composite resin. It stops the progression of decay, restores the tooth’s function, prevents sensitivity, and offers a natural appearance

CROWNS

A dental crown, often referred to as a ‘cap,’ is a prosthetic restoration that covers or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are custom-made to fit over the entire tooth, starting from the gum line, to restore its original size and shape. They are typically made from porcelain, ceramic, or metal alloys. Before placing a crown, the dentist reshapes the damaged or decayed tooth to ensure a proper fit.

 It strengthens a damaged or weakened tooth,  restores the tooth’s function and appearance, and can be used in cosmetic procedures to improve the aesthetics of discolored or misshapen teeth

BRIDGES

Dental bridges literally “bridge” the gap created by one or more missing teeth. They consist of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap (these are called anchoring teeth) and a false tooth/teeth in between. To create a bridge, anchoring teeth are prepared for crowns, and an impression is taken to design the bridge, which includes the replacement tooth (or teeth). Once crafted, the bridge is cemented onto the prepared teeth, and the false tooth sits in the gap.

It restores the ability to chew and speak properly, maintains the shape of your face by preventing bone loss, and prevents other teeth from shifting out of position due to the gap
