What is restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry uses one or more dental treatments to help replace or correct teeth affected by decay or tooth loss. 

The types of restorations available at WestCare Dental include:

Fillings

When you have a mild-to-moderate cavity or decay, dental fillings are a solution. To get a filling, your provider removes any decayed portion of the tooth and fills it with a biocompatible material. 

A filling allows much of your natural tooth and tooth root to remain intact.

Crowns

Your provider places dental crowns securely over a damaged tooth or implant. Crowns are made to match your tooth’s natural color and blend right into your smile. 

Crowns are sturdy and can last a lifetime with good oral hygiene habits. 

Implants

Dental implants are metal posts surgically inserted into your jawbone. Implants look and feel just like your natural teeth. 

These permanent solutions to gaps in your smile also stimulate your jawbone to prevent degradation of your face shape.

Why should I consider restorative dentistry?

Having a complete, healthy smile promotes optimal oral health. A quality smile also makes you feel confident and attractive. 

Restorative dentistry offers the benefits of: 

  • Helping to keep your teeth properly aligned
  • Making oral hygiene easier and preventing plaque buildup
  • Improving your appearance and self-esteem

Missing teeth mean your natural teeth are likely to shift, causing misalignments in your smile that affect your appearance, oral health, and ability to speak and chew. 

WestCare Dental uses the highest quality materials to manufacture your dental restorations. You can be rest assured that you’ll get the sturdiness and function that creates long-lasting outcomes.

How do you care for dental restorations?

 

Dental restorations function just like your natural teeth and deserve the same good care. Brush twice daily and floss around your teeth, including your restorations. Make regular professional cleanings at WestCare Dental a priority.

 

Stay away from hard foods like jawbreakers or popcorn kernels, as these can chip your restorations. Also, avoid using your teeth as tools to open bottles or boxes and chewing on pencils or other hard objects.
