Restorative Dentistry Q & A

What is restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry rehabilitates your smile if your teeth or gums are damaged or decayed. These treatments can help restore the appearance and function of your teeth, as well as your bite. The team at Signature Smiles Dentistry strives to boost your oral health and restore your mouth to its full function.

Why would I need restorative dentistry?

There are many reasons the team may recommend a restorative procedure to return your mouth to full function, including:

  • Missing teeth
  • Cracked or broken teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Misaligned bite
  • Gum disease
  • Tooth decay
  • Old fillings
  • Teeth worn from grinding

After a full evaluation of your mouth, which includes X-rays and a dental exam, the team can determine the right restorative treatment for you.

What are some common restorative dentistry treatments?

Signature Smiles Dentistry performs an array of restorative treatments at their office, such as:

Dental implants

Dental implants are small titanium posts placed into your jaw to replace tooth roots if you have missing teeth. They hold your replacement teeth securely in place, so they look, feel, and function like your natural teeth.

Dental crowns

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that cover the visible portion of your tooth to restore its shape, size, or color. Crowns also protect weak teeth against further damage by providing a durable barrier.

Dental bridge

A bridge spans the gap left by your missing tooth. Dental bridges consist of two dental crowns with an artificial tooth held in the middle.

Filling

The team uses fillings to restore the surface of your tooth after removing a cavity. Fillings come in many materials, including metal and tooth-colored substances, like composite resin.

Dental bonding

Bonding uses composite resin to fix chips and cracks in your smile. It can also help repair large gaps and restore the shape of your tooth.

Veneers

Veneers are wafer-thin pieces of porcelain that can enhance the shape, size, and color of your teeth. They bond to the surface of your teeth so they look and feel natural.

Root canal

A root canal is a restorative treatment that removes damage from your tooth chamber to eliminate severe decay or infection.

Periodontal treatments

Periodontal treatments, such as scaling and root planing, remove plaque and bacteria from your teeth and gums to treat gum disease.
