Many people will find themselves needing restorative dentistry at some point in their life, either from a dental injury or tooth decay. Perhaps you are experiencing some difficulty chewing, or some increased sensitivity to temperature or sweet foods and drinks.
By seeking dental care and treatment sooner rather than later, you can quickly and efficiently avoid turning small dental issues into bigger, more complicated and costly ones. In addition, restorative procedures are more likely to be minimally invasive when addressed at the initial stages of decay and/or discomfort.
At Honest Teeth, we are proud to offer an array of simple restorative solutions that effectively treat your dental issues. Whether you need a filling or a tooth replacement, we have options to suit your budget and lifestyle!
What Is Restorative Dentistry?
If you need to repair teeth that are missing, decayed, chipped, damaged, cracked, or discolored, restorative dentistry provides necessary treatment to restore strength and function. Eating, speaking, smiling and laughing with ease is possible once again!
A dental crown is a natural looking tooth-colored cap, or covering, placed over the original structure of a tooth and can be used in conjunction with a dental bridge or implant. Porcelain crowns are renowned for their ability to provide exceptional aesthetic and functional benefits.
Let’s bring back the shine to your smile! Crowns are perfect for:
- Restoring teeth that are worn or stained
- Holding a dental bridge in place, or cover a dental implant
- Transforming the size, shape, and appearance of your smile
- Sealing a tooth after a root canal or where a large filling is insufficient
- Preventing future tooth decay or breakage
Dental implants look, feel, and function just like a natural tooth. They are the preferred option for tooth replacement, as they permanent and will never shift or slip in place. Every implant is carefully designed to mimic a healthy tooth root with a synthetic, titanium root that fuses into the jawbone to support a strong dental crown. They can last a lifetime with proper care!
Cavities are the result of tooth decay that has eaten a hole through your tooth enamel. Dental fillings seal the area and prevent any further decay or bacteria from entering and restore your teeth to their natural shape and function. Composite fillings are a popular choice due to their natural appearance and ability to match the color and shape of your surrounding teeth.
If you’ve lost one or more teeth, a dental bridge can “bridge” the gap between adjacent teeth with dental crowns. Dental bridges are known for their high success rate and for their resistance to slipping or shifting in place. They can also mitigate the effects of missing teeth, such as a sunken jaw, shifting teeth, or bone problems.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canals have a high success rate for restoring your oral health while preserving the original structure of your tooth. If your tooth is infected due to bacteria reaching the innermost portion of your tooth, or pulp, it can inflame the tissue and blood vessels, leading to pain and discomfort. Root canals relieve this dental pain and save the original structure of your tooth.
