Restorative Dentistry Near You
Managing oral health problems is the main goal of restorative dentistry. Teeth restoration includes a host of procedures that address both functional and aesthetic dental concerns and usually involves the use of crowns, fillings, bridges, veneers, dentures, and implants.
Also known as prosthodontics, restoring teeth in this manner is a good way to fill in the empty spaces of your mouth in order to prevent cavities from forming. When damaged, decayed, or worn out teeth are removed, there is a space that cannot be ignored because it can be a host to other oral health problems. This is because the empty spaces are vulnerable to bacteria that causes plaque build up. What’s more, if you don’t avail of restorative dentistry to complete your set of teeth there will be more stress on your natural teeth since there isn’t a lot of surface area for you to chew your food with.
Teeth restoration may be direct (putting a filling right into the prepared tooth cavity) or indirect (customizing crowns, inlays, or onlays as tooth replacements). Direct tooth restoration can be accomplished in just one visit, while indirect dental restoration can take more than one visit because the material often needs be made in a lab.

This will depend on your health and budget, which your teeth restoration dentist will discuss with you while considering the best options to preserve as much of your remaining natural teeth as possible.
