Restorative dentistry encompasses procedures that repair or restore the structure, appearance, and function of teeth that have been damaged or lost as a result of oral health issues or trauma. At Gardens Dental Spa, our dentists specialize in providing durable and natural-looking restorations that improve your oral health, chewing function, and smile.
Dental fillings are used to repair the tooth structure after a tooth has been damaged by tooth decay. They also stop the progression of tooth decay and prevent further damage. Tooth decay occurs when bacteria erode the tooth enamel and create a hole.
During this procedure, our dentist will remove the decayed portion of the tooth, fill it using a tooth-colored composite filling, and then polish the tooth for a natural finish.
Dental bonding can be used to repair damage such as tooth cracks, chips, or breaks. The resin bonding material is applied directly onto the surface of the affected tooth and then shaped as needed to repair the tooth structure and restore tooth function.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are custom-made dental restorations used to repair tooth damage. They are recommended when the damage is too extensive to be repaired with a filling but not extensive enough to require a crown. Inlays are designed to fill the area between the cusps of the teeth, and onlays cover at least one cusp.
Dental crowns are used to repair and strengthen teeth that have been damaged or decayed beyond what can be repaired with a filling, inlay, or onlay. A dental crown covers the entire tooth, restores its strength, and protects it from further damage. It can also be used to anchor a bridge or cover an implant.
A dental bridge is a fixed prosthetic that fills the gap created by missing teeth. A bridge typically consists of two supporting crowns placed on the adjacent teeth and one or more false teeth called pontics.
Bridges are an alternative to dental implants when more than one tooth is missing in a row.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that replace missing or damaged teeth. They are surgically placed in the jaw and fuse with the bone to create a permanent and solid structure for replacement teeth. The dental implant is fitted with an abutment and a custom-made crown to provide a natural-looking tooth replacement.
