Dentists have many techniques and procedures available to them to achieve a beautiful, natural smile. One of the most common procedures in restorative dentistry. This involves repairing teeth that are damaged or missing. There are a variety of restorative dentistry options available, depending on the specific needs of the patient. Let's discuss some of the most common restorative dentistry procedures and how they can help you achieve your perfect smile!
If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants are a great option. Dental implants are artificial roots that are placed into the jawbone. Once the implant has healed, a natural-looking tooth replacement (crown) is attached to the implant. Dental implants look and function just like your natural teeth and can last a lifetime with proper care!
Another common restorative dentistry procedure is bonding. Bonding is used to repair chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth. The dentist will use a tooth-colored composite resin material to build up and shape the tooth. Bonding can also be used to close gaps between teeth.
Do you have crooked or misshapen teeth? Orthodontics can help! Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with the correction of misaligned teeth and jaws. Common orthodontic treatments include braces and Invisalign®.
