Common Restorative Treatments
Some of the types of treatments that can help you improve your teeth’s function and looks include:
Better known to the general public as “fillings,” these are the most common dental treatment for restorative care. Fillings are performed when a tooth structure is decayed and infected. The decay is removed, the infection is treated, and a tooth-colored composite resin is inserted into the empty structure.
Crowns, or “caps,” as they are often called, are all-ceramic teeth placed in the mouth when a filling isn’t enough. Crowns are used when the support from the remaining tooth structure isn’t strong enough to hold a filling. The crown is created in a lab and cemented to the tooth once it’s prepared.
Less invasive than a crown but more solid than a filling, an onlay is used when a tooth needs a bit of extra help. Infection and decay have set in to the point that a filling isn’t going to be enough, but a crown is too extreme. This “in between” place is where an onlay might be used.
There are multiple types of denture options that can be offered with today’s technology. From a fixed partial denture, or “dental bridge,” to a complete full set of dentures, what you get is based on the severity of your tooth loss.
If you only have a missing tooth or a few, dental implants can prevent further deterioration of the surrounding teeth and jawbone. These are fabricated “teeth” that are designed to match the rest of your smile and are “implanted” into your gum and jawbone to function just like your natural tooth.
