What is Restorative Dentistry?
This branch of dentistry restores the functionality of your teeth with an eye for aesthetics. Any time a tooth cracks, chips, falls out, or breaks, the dentists at Sunrise Dental can repair the damage, restoring the full function and appearance of the tooth.
Injury, aging, and detrimental habits like grinding turn our mouths into a battleground. Your restorative dentist comes in and rebuilds the structures. Your dentist can also help prevent tooth damage and diagnose oral diseases.
What Restorative Procedures are Available?
The dentists at Sunrise Dental offer a variety of tooth-restoration options to repair your teeth, such as:
- Tooth-colored fillings for cavities
- Crowns: tooth-colored caps placed over broken teeth
- Bridges to fill in missing teeth
- Root canals to preserve infected teeth
- Full and partial dentures
- Dental implants to replace missing teeth
What are the Benefits of Restorative Dentistry?
Proper tooth restoration allows you to maintain proper oral health. If you lose or break a tooth, for example, your other teeth may shift or bear more stress, and your jawbone may erode. So, restoration helps prevent further damage. Even filling a cavity right away helps prevent further tooth decay.
Restoring the integrity of your teeth helps you eat and speak better. It improves your bite and how hard you can chew. Restoring your teeth to full function also allows you to maintain your natural speech.
Even though restorative dentistry isn’t solely focused on aesthetics, the dentists at Sunrise Dental recognize the importance of a great smile, so they keep your appearance in mind during dental procedures. They strive to ensure that your restored teeth will blend in with the rest.
