What Is Restorative Dentistry?
Depending on your oral health needs, you can benefit from various dental procedures that restore tooth strength and function. After your initial consultation, we’ll review the best restorative procedure options that suit your needs. Explore the summaries of our effective treatment options below to learn more about each restorative dentistry process.
A dental crown provides an ideal solution to replace the visible portion of a damaged or decayed tooth. Crowns are available in multiple materials, including:
- Metal alloys
Composite Fillings and Bonding
Dental fillings and bonding refer to standard procedures in restorative dentistry practices. We restore your damaged tooth using porcelain or composite resin to fill and repair it completely.
Dental Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays help to replace missing portions of your natural tooth. While the general idea has similarities to a filling, it involves a more advanced process thanks to our partner lab customizing each inlay and onlay to each damaged tooth.
Bridges make an ideal solution for replacing one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge consists of two crowns surrounding the replacement tooth or teeth. The dental bridge procedure requires at least two appointments to prepare the natural teeth and place the bridge permanently.
Dentures are an adaptable solution to replacing multiple missing teeth with either a full or partial set of artificial teeth. The most affordable dentures are removable, but you have the option to invest in fixed or anchored dentures that stay in place without adhesives. Please speak with our dentist about which style of dentures in the East Village best suits your goals, budget, and lifestyle.
Dental implants make an excellent investment in replacing one or more missing teeth permanently. The steps to this procedure will include:
- Intake examination to ensure that you are a healthy candidate for oral surgery
- Development of your individualized treatment plan
- Surgically implanting the small titanium post(s) in the jawbone
- A six to 12-week healing period
- Attachment of the abutment connector post
- An oral impression to perfectly sculpt the replacement teeth
- Placement of the new teeth
- Regular maintenance of your dental care (brushing, flossing, and rinsing) and oral health check-ups
