Dental procedures that focus on repairing or replacing damaged oral structures are known as restorative dentistry. This can involve everything from filling cavities, placing crowns, repairing broken teeth, or replacing missing teeth with dental implants. If your tooth has been damaged, Grace Dental can help you restore it.
When you come in for your appointment, we will carefully examine the area of concern and discuss treatment options with you so that together we can determine what is best for your unique situation. Our goal is always to provide the highest quality of care possible while keeping our patients comfortable throughout their entire experience with us.
Fillings. Fillings are the most common type of restorative dentistry we see, whether they are amalgam (metal) or composite (white). These are used to restore and strengthen the structural integrity of a tooth that has been weakened by cavities and decay.
Crowns. If a tooth has considerable decay and cannot be repaired with fillings, dental crowns may be necessary to protect the tooth from future deterioration. These restorative procedures entail creating a “cap” that covers the entire tooth.
Bridges. If you have missing teeth your dentist may be able to close or “bridge” the gaps in your smile with dental bridges. A dental bridge contains a false tooth (pontic) that is held in place by the teeth on each side. Although pontics can be made from a variety of materials such as gold, typically they’re made from porcelain to aesthetically blend in with your natural teeth.
Bonding. Bonding is the process of recreating the missing portion of enamel by forming and bonding composite materials to your teeth.
Implants. Dental implants are an alternative option to bridging teeth. This shows the teamwork and harmony within the different disciplines of dentistry. Our doctors refer patients to an oral surgeon or periodontist, who will place a titanium implant into the bone where the tooth once resided. Once the bone is integrated with the implant (usually 2-4 months), the patient returns to our office, and a porcelain crown is screwed into the implant.
When you come in for your appointment, we will carefully examine the affected area and discuss treatment options with you so that we can determine what is best for your unique situation. Our goal is always to provide the highest quality care possible while keeping our patients comfortable throughout their entire experience with us.
