Dental restorations are utilized to restore the teeth to their original state. This could include factors such as strength, contour, size, or structural integrity. The primary aim of restorative dentistry is to reinstate the appearance and function of the impaired teeth. At Louie Family Dentistry, we help our patients through our wide range of dental restorations to correct their smiles’ imperfections.
Here are some of the standard restorative dentistry services we offer:
Dental crowns are the most multi-purpose dental restorations to date. They imitate the appearance of natural teeth from the outside but are hollow on the inside. They are secured on teeth that are cracked, chipped, broken, exceptionally weak, or severely worn out to restore their strength, functionality, and aesthetics.
Dental veneers are simple restorations placed on the teeth’s front surface. They are tailor-made to imitate the contour of the teeth and are cemented with the help of dental adhesives. Veneers hide the surface imperfections on the teeth, such as cracks, discoloration, chipping, or exposed root surfaces. They also restructure naturally misshapen teeth.
Dental bridges are fabricated from tooth-colored porcelain, a durable and robust material. They are bonded in place of missing teeth and are held securely with the help of dental crowns on either side. Since bridges do not involve surgery, they are undoubtedly the simplest means of replacing a lost tooth.
Implants are the substitutes that most resemble the missing natural teeth. They are inserted directly into the jawbone with the help of a metal implant stud. Dental implants restore both oral functionality and aesthetics. And their solid strength and durability make them the most sought-after solution for teeth replacement.
Dental fillings are placed to fill up cavities caused by tooth decay. They are made from either porcelain or tooth-colored composite resin, both of which are biocompatible materials. Fillings exhibit excellent sealing properties and prevent the cavity from being further infected. They involve a convenient and straightforward procedure and can last long.
Dental inlays are porcelain restorations used as an alternative for fillings. They are custom-made according to the contour of the cavity and cemented in place with the help of dental adhesives. Onlays can re-establish the worn-out cusp or biting surface of a tooth.
A root canal is a regular restorative procedure that can help salvage a tooth and prevent its extraction. The procedure can help treat an infected tooth by removing the bacterial decay and stopping the further spread of disease.
