What Is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry involves replacing or repairing teeth that have lost normal function due to breakage, decay, or trauma. This branch of dentistry aims to allow patients to speak, chew, and smile with a full set of healthy teeth.

Benefits of Restorative Dentistry

  • Improve chewing and speaking functions
  • Proper bite alignment
  • Properly distribute bite force, allowing teeth to wear evenly and preventing jaw pain
  • Keep teeth from shifting into gaps left behind by missing teeth
  • Improve confidence and self-esteem
  • Restore your smile's appearance

Procedures Offered

Composite Fillings

Composite resin material matches existing tooth surfaces for a natural look. Unlike metal fillings, they strengthen teeth.

Inlays & Onlays

These restorations can strengthen and repair a tooth too damaged for a filling but does not need a crown. Inlays & onlays protect the remaining natural tooth surface while maintaining an attractive appearance.

Dental Crowns

Crowns protect and restore teeth that have suffered breakage or decay. They can also maintain teeth that undergo root canals. Crowns can often save natural teeth, including the vital root structure.

Dental Bridges

Bridges are an economical option for replacing a lost or extracted tooth. They connect to crowns or implants on either side, holding artificial teeth in the middle. A bridge can replace from one to three teeth.

For multiple missing teeth, an implant may be used to anchor the bridge.

Dental Implant Restorations

Implants are today’s premier choice for replacing missing or damaged teeth. To install an implant, the dentist places a small titanium post that bonds with the jawbone and tops it with a dental crown.

Perfect Smile Dental Studio offers three types of dental implants:

  • Single-Tooth Dental Implants
  • Implant-Supported Dentures: Implants can also support full-arch dentures. These are more comfortable and secure than traditional dentures.

Frequently Asked Questions About Restorative Dentistry

Do dental implants look like natural teeth?

Dental implants are so lifelike that most people cannot distinguish them from natural teeth when you smile.

What happens if you have a tooth pulled and don't replace it?

Dentists remove the natural root system when they extract a tooth. The absent root system allows other teeth to drift, becoming crowded or gapped. Missing roots also cause the jaw bone to break down around the socket, leading to an altered facial appearance. Promptly replacing teeth with bridges, implants, or dentures can prevent many of these issues.

Do you need a crown after a root canal?

In most cases, dentists recommend getting a crown after a root canal. A filling can restore some teeth, but depending on the strength of the remaining tooth, a crown may produce better and longer-lasting results.

Does dental insurance cover restorative dentistry?

Most dental insurance policies do cover restorative dentistry. Ensure that you understand your plan, including deductibles and out-of-pocket costs.

What is the difference between a metal amalgam and a composite filling?

Metal fillings combine mercury, silver, tin, and copper. Composite fillings are a solid acrylic resin that incorporates powdered quartz, silica, and ceramics. Composite fillings blend in with teeth and strengthen the natural material.

How long does a dental bridge last?

Dental bridges typically last about five to 15 years, depending on the materials, location, and how well you care for them.

Are implant-supported dentures removable?

Implant-supported dentures may be permanent or removable, depending on your preferences. Full-arch dentures are typically not removable except by your dentist.
