Restorative dentistry is a branch of dentistry that can help you treat your decayed, broken, injured, and even missing teeth. With the help of restorative dentistry, you can have the top-notch smile and oral health you deserve. Fortunately, there are many restorative treatments available, and our dentist, Dr. Richard J. Koeltl, is happy to tell you all about them. A few common treatments are:
-Dental fillings: Dental fillings are used to repair decayed and damaged teeth. Amalgam and composite resin dental fillings are the most common fillings used. Amalgam is silver and is made of metal while composite is white to match your teeth and is made of a dental resin material.
-Dental crowns: Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that cover the entire tooth up to the gumline. They replace the tooth enamel and restore the tooth’s health and function. They are custom made for your tooth and they look just like your natural teeth.
-Dental bridges: Dental bridges are minimally invasive and they replace your missing teeth. They are made of two dental crowns and false teeth. The crowns will hold the false teeth in your smile by being anchored to the natural teeth remaining in your mouth.
