Restorative Dentistry Q & A
What is restorative dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is the category of dental work that aims to repair or replace damaged or missing teeth. Some people choose to get restorative dental work simply because they’re not comfortable with how their smile looks, but restorative procedures can also help you speak and eat more comfortably.
What are the benefits of restorative dentistry?
Restorative dentistry has many benefits. No matter your reason for seeking a restorative dental procedure, you’ll likely notice some additional perks, too. Benefits of restorative dentistry include:
- A more attractive smile
- Elimination of pain or discomfort
- The durability of your restored teeth
- Easier to chew and speak
- Prevents more cavities and damage
- Maintains your facial structure
You may choose to get restorative dentistry on your own, or Dr. Neuman may recommend it to you for your health and benefit.
What procedures are included in restorative dentistry?
Dr. Neuman performs many procedures that fall under the umbrella of restorative dentistry. At Zenith Dental Arts, he offers:
Inlays are like fillings, but they’re custom fit to your own teeth. They fill the inside of a tooth for lost structure from decay or damage.
Like inlays, onlays fill the inside of damaged teeth. Additionally, they extend to the chewing surface of your tooth. They are usually used when a part of the tooth has broken off.
Dental crowns are custom fit devices that fit over the top of your tooth. They improve both the strength and the appearance of your tooth and can be made of different types of metal or a tooth-colored material depending on your needs.
Bridges are prosthetic teeth used to fill in the gaps left by one or more lost teeth. They keep your teeth from drifting into space and allow you to have a full, good-looking smile.
Aesthetic dentistry refers to any treatment with a main goal of improving your smile’s appearance. For example, whitening treatments to remove stains are aesthetic restorative treatments because, while they’re not necessary for your health, they make your smile look better and restore it to its original beauty.
