Restorative dentistry is a group of oral procedures designed to diagnose and treat damage or decay affecting one or more of your teeth.
Aside from preventing the need for oral surgery and more complex procedures, restorative dentistry can eradicate stains, improve the appearance of misshapen or damaged teeth, and restore your chewing and biting abilities.
Additionally, restorative dentistry can improve your oral health. If you’re missing one or more teeth, you’re more likely to experience gum recession and gum disease. If you have a cavity that’s left untreated, the infection can spread. Restorative treatments stop these and other issues before they can occur.
The caring team at Grace Dental Design offers an array of restorative dentistry, including:
The team takes digital x-rays once a year. X-rays are important because a tooth that has a small cavity will not cause pain. If decay is present, Dr. Grace recommends filling the tooth to fix the tooth. “Watching” a cavity will only get bigger. At Grace Dental Design, the team only uses tooth colored composite to repair tooth enamel damage. The filling appointment should be painless, and it will restore your smile back to a healthy, vibrant condition. Plus, using composite filling materials means you don’t have to wait to eat or drink after your filling!
If you crack or chip a tooth, or you develop a cavity, your Grace Dental Design provider might recommend a dental crown. A crown restores your tooth to its original size, shape, and condition while stopping decay from further infecting your tooth or surrounding gums.
If you’re missing one, several, or all of your permanent teeth, dental implants can restore your smile as well as your ability to chew, bite, and speak confidently. Dental implants are also easy to care for and can last a lifetime.
To determine the type of restorative dentistry that will most benefit you, make an appointment at Grace Dental Design. After an oral exam and discussion of your treatment goals, Dr. Grace makes a recommendation that aligns with your individual needs.
No matter the type of restorative treatment you undergo, the team works hard to ensure you’re very comfortable during the entire procedure.
