Restorative Dentistry Q&A

What is restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry offers a way to repair a smile that has been affected by decay or tooth loss. The team at Smile Design Advanced Dentistry recommends restorative dentistry to patients who are missing multiple teeth, have worn down teeth or decay, or need new crowns. 

What types of restorative dentistry options are available?

The restorations available at Smile Design Advanced Dentistry include:

Dental fillings

Dental fillings “fill” in cavities or areas of mild decay. The team removes the decayed portion of your tooth and fills it with a biocompatible material to maintain your tooth’s integrity and prevent the spread of decay. 

The team at Smile Design Advanced Dentistry uses tooth-colored fillings that blend into your smile perfectly. 

Crowns

Crowns are “caps” that cover weakened or damaged teeth. They’re also used to anchor dental bridges or top a dental implant. The team designs crowns that match your unique tooth color and shape.

Implants

Dental implants fill in gaps in your smile. They consist of a metal post surgically implanted into your jawbone and topped with a dental crown. Dental implants look and act like your natural teeth. 

Full-mouth reconstruction

The team recommends full-mouth reconstruction to improve your oral health and take care of your teeth and gums when you have significant dental problems, such as decay, gum disease, or tooth loss. 

Candidates for full-mouth reconstruction may have:

  • Multiple missing teeth
  • Worn-out bite
  • Old dental crowns
  • Extensive decay
  • Periodontal disease
  • Severe wear or acid erosion
  • Trauma
  • Teeth grinding

Patients with sleep apnea and serious snoring may also benefit from a full-mouth reconstruction. The team can rebuild the proper “height” of the teeth in your mouth to restore proper breathing, during the day and at night. 

What can I do to enhance my restorative dentistry treatments?

Care for dental restorations like implants, fillings, and crowns in the same way that you care for your natural teeth. Brush two times daily and floss regularly. You may also benefit from bi-annual appointments for dental exams and professional cleanings. 

Avoid munching on hard foods like popcorn kernels or chewing on non-food items to protect your restorations. With good care, restorative dentistry refinements can last a lifetime*.
