Restorative Dentistry - Why It's Important
Everyone needs a little dental work done on them from time to time. With the natural wear and tear of life as well as the unexpected cavity or two, maintaining healthy and happy teeth takes some effort. That’s by restorative dentistry is so vital. It can help restore your teeth to their best shape and keep you looking and feeling healthy and happy. At Haws Family Dentistry, we offer many different types of restorative dentistry. Let’s take a closer look at a few of our more popular options…
If you’ve experienced significant decay or damage to your tooth, then you may need more than just a dental filling. This is where a dental crown comes in handy. Dental crowns are small toppers or caps that can be placed directly on top of your natural tooth. Your dentist will remove the decayed or infected part of the tooth, clean the tooth thoroughly and then attach the crown on top. This will help restore your tooth and protect it from further damage or decay. It will make your tooth even stronger than before. You can choose different materials but porcelain and ceramic are often chosen because they can help imitate the look of a natural tooth and they blend right into your smile.
If you have some small cavities in your smile, then a dental filling can fix those right up. By cleaning out decay and filling in the small holes, you can help keep your teeth strong. This will help future problems from arising and can stop decay and infection in its tracks.
If you’re missing a tooth (or even all your teeth), then dental implants could be a great restorative option for you. Dental implants are a more permanent kind of dental replacement that can help put your new false teeth directly into your jaw or skull bones. They’re permanent and can help you look and function just like you did before you lost your teeth!
