Restorative dental procedures are the procedures that repair oral health issues. It includes fillings, tooth extractions, root canals, and more. Restorative dental procedures address tooth decay, cavities, and damage that mar the teeth, gums, and oral tissues.
Listed below are major restorative dental procedures facilitated at the dental practice.
A dental crown is a dental “cap” placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength. It fully encases the visible portion of the tooth above the gumline.
Dental crowns are also referred to as “caps” or “tooth caps.”
A dental bridge is an oral restorative prosthesis that replaces a missing tooth. A bridge is meant to replace the missing tooth and blend into the smile when placed in the mouth. It is non-removable, so once it is placed, a patient must care for the bridge like a regular tooth.
A dental filling is a common restorative procedure used to repair a tooth affected by cavities (dental caries). A dental filling is sometimes referred to as dental restoration. Dental fillings are not only used to restore teeth affected by cavities but also teeth that have been cracked or fractured.
A dental inlay is a small filling used to address damage to the chewing surface. Inlays, like dental fillings, can be made of tooth-colored composite resin or dental amalgam. The tooth-colored material used in dental fillings can be shaded to match the natural color of your tooth, so your smile is seamless and flawless.
A dental veneer is a thin shell-like structure made of porcelain. They are custom made to fit your teeth and cover the front side.
They address several cosmetic issues, such as:
• Stained or discolored teeth
• Misshapen teeth
• Gaps between teeth
• Chips or cracks
• Uneven teeth
• Teeth with worn edges
