Dental restoration includes a wide range of dental procedures that replace or restore a damaged or missing teeth. You might have already heard of dental implants and crowns, but let’s dive into more details about each procedure.
Let’s get started with these key points about dental restoration:
Dental restoration aims to restore the function, morphology, and appearance of missing or damaged teeth. The tooth structure damaged due to a gum disease, decay, or an injury.
There are numerous dental restoration procedures that allow patients to restore their beautiful smile. Depending on your dental case, your professional dentist will recommend a set of procedures that would give you great results.
Dental restoration can be transformative for a lot of reasons.
First, it allows you to regain confidence in your smile. Because smiling is such an important part of our lives, a beautiful new smile can give you a boost of self-confidence.
Secondly, dental restoration improves the function of your teeth and your overall oral health. For example, it can allow you to restore the functionality of a tooth affected by a cavity, and prevent it from decaying.
Finally, dental restoration helps you treat a damaged tooth and restore its appearance. It can overlap with cosmetic dentistry in this way, but dental restoration also helps to restore the functionality of the tooth. Dental crowns, veneers, and composite resin are all examples of treatments offered to a patients with a damaged tooth.
If have realized that you have a cavity and you’re wondering how to treat it? Then you should visit your dentist and get a filling. A filling is the most simple and direct dental restoration procedure. This treatment can be performed in one dental visit.
Your dentist will suggest the best filling option based on your dental situation. Composite resin, ceramic, porcelain and glass are all common fillings for a tooth affected by a cavity. Fillings are an easy way to treat your cavities and to prevent decay and tooth damage .
Dental crowns and porcelain veneers are two common procedures used by professional dentists for tooth restoration. Before talking about their benefits, let’s first distinguish between crowns and veneers.
Dental crowns act as a tooth-shaped “cap” that cover the visible portion of your tooth or dental implant. Your dentist will usually recommend a dental crown for a tooth that is weak, broken or decayed.
To apply a dental crown, your dentist will need to reduce the tooth surface so that the crown can restore the original morphology of the tooth. This is because each dental crown is custom-made to fit your unique smile, making them resistant to decay and highly reliable.
Dental veneers are a thin material, usually made of porcelain, that are applied to the front of your teeth. Your dentist will recommend veneers if your teeth are chipped, misshaped or discolored.
Overall, veneers are a good solution if you need to restore the appearance and the function of a portion of your tooth.
Porcelain veneers are resistant to staining and they are durable.
However, if the whole tooth needs to be covered, dental crowns would be a better choice.
To summarize, dental crowns and veneers are both options to restore the aesthetics and functionality of a damaged or decayed tooth.
Dental crowns cover your entire tooth surface and they are likely to be recommended if the tooth is severely damaged.
Porcelain veneers are a thin material that will only cover the area where the tooth is damaged. They are a good solution for chipped or misshapen teeth.
Both dental crowns and veneers are the same color as your teeth (besides gold crowns) and provide natural-looking result.
They are also both durable solutions.
Well-maintained dental crowns and veneers can both last up to 15 years. Excellent oral care and regular visits at your dentist help you extend their durability.
We’ve learned more about dental crowns and veneers, but now let’s expand our dental restoration treatment options! Depending on your dental condition, you might require a bridge or dental implants.
A dental bridge is an artificial tooth used to replace one or more missing teeth. Bridges are natural-looking and they are hardly noticeable.
Your dental bridge is custom-made and it will perfectly fit the contour and structure of the missing teeth. However, before applying the dental bridge, the contour of your teeth will need to be adjusted.
Dental implants are also designed to replace one or missing teeth however, they replace the teeth from the root of the tooth.
Inserting an implant is a surgical procedure that anchors the implant into the bone of the missing tooth.
Dental implants are generally made of titanium or a mixture of titanium. They lay the foundation for an artificial tooth that is natural-looking.
They are highly durable but they require excellent oral care like your natural teeth.
Bridges and dental implants are both great solutions for a person who is missing one or more teeth.
Missing teeth can affect the structure of your mouth and jaw, as well as your ability to eat and speak.
