What is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is the management of oral health problems and restoring the mouth to a functional and esthetic state. The procedures used include fillings, veneers, crowns, bridges, dentures, and dental implants.
Restoring Teeth and Your Smile
A cosmetic dentist like Dr. Smith works in concert with her patients and brings her skills and understanding of esthetics of dentistry to restoration procedures to guarantee beautiful outcomes. Employing advanced techniques and biocompatible materials like composite (white) fillings and porcelain veneers and crowns, Dr. Smith carefully assesses the characteristics and needs of each tooth so when the restoration is complete, your smile looks healthy again.
Repairing existing teeth with fillings, veneers, or crowns and replacing missing teeth with an implant, bridge or denture helps promote dental health. Filling in empty spaces in the mouth can help prevent cavities because plaque tends to build up in the gaps. Missing teeth also put stress on your remaining natural teeth because you don’t have properly aligned surface areas on which to chew.
The goal is to preserve natural teeth as much as possible!
