A beautiful smile can be ruined by any number of dental issues, but restorative dental care can put it right again. If you are missing teeth or have large cavities that need attention, the right dental procedure can make all the difference.
What is Restorative Dental Care?
As the name implies, this type of dentistry restores teeth that are either missing or damaged. When teeth are missing, there are options for replacement. Traditionally missing teeth have been replaced with dental bridges or removable dentures. Dental implants are now becoming the preferred method of replacing teeth.
When a tooth is damaged or has a large cavity, it may need a dental crown, an inlay or an onlay also called partial crowns. A crown restores the tooth to its natural look. At the same time, it provides stability and protection for the natural tooth. Large cavities and root canal therapy make a tooth more susceptible to breakage. A crown or partial crown can prevent that from happening.
Why It Matters
Missing teeth and damaged teeth can cause a variety of dental problems. In the case of missing teeth, the adjacent teeth can be moved out of alignment. The more teeth you have missing, the more impact it has on your oral and physical health. You are not able to chew your food properly when you have missing teeth. Restorative dental care restores missing tooth surface so you can chew properly and derive full nourishment from the foods you eat.
Restorative dental care also makes your smile beautiful again. The gaps caused by missing teeth make your smile less than appealing. When those gaps are closed, your smile is greatly enhanced.
