Restorative dentistry is a specific branch of dentistry that focuses on restoring the health and function of your smile after damage to your teeth from decay, infection, or tooth loss.
Missing or badly damaged teeth can cause problems with the appearance, health, and function of your smile, and if you are dealing with an incomplete smile, you should take steps to repair your smile and improve your oral health.
Restorative dentistry is also appropriate for those with old or worn restorations, including amalgam fillings that need to be replaced with a white filling.
Paradise Valley Smiles offers top-notch restorative dental care in Paradise Valley, AZ. Dr. Brannon and his dental team are here to help you in every way possible to restore the well-being of your gums and teeth. Our mission is to meet your dental needs and help you achieve your desired smile.
What Are The Benefits of Restorative Dentistry?
With restorative dentistry, not only will you be able to restore your smile that has been damaged, but this type of dentistry also offers the following benefits:
- It helps to improve speech and eating functionality. - Prevents future pain and discomfort. - It helps distribute the bite force, preventing jaw pain. - Reduces the possibility of gaps between teeth. - Allows for better chewing and biting. - Prevents dental problems from worsening until a more complex procedure is required. - Preserves bone strength. - Preserving or replacing your teeth will maintain a natural-looking smile and give you confidence.
Some Restorative Procedures
Restorative dentistry is your best option if you want to restore your beautiful smile after it has been damaged. Whether you need a simple filling or a complete replacement of a missing tooth, you can feel confident that we have the solutions to fit you.
First, we will evaluate your smile and take note of any problems that make you feel like you can't show it off. We then proceed to put together a restorative dentistry plan that may include one or more of the following:
When a tooth is cracked, fractured, broken, or affected by decay, a root canal is often necessary to ensure that the exposed pulp is free of infection. The final step in this procedure is the placement of a dental crown. Crowns are often referred to as "restorations" because they are artificial dental caps that cover the tooth above the gum line.
Bridges are prosthetic devices designed to replace an entire tooth with an artificial tooth called a "pontic." They are called bridges because they bridge the gap left by a missing tooth. Bridges are held in place by attaching them to the teeth on either side of the gap and preventing them from shifting.
Bonding for cosmetic benefits
If your teeth are chipped, cracked, stained, unevenly spaced, or oddly shaped, we can use bonding to fix them cosmetically. Dr. Brannon will apply an adhesive and composite resin that matches your teeth' color to cover the flaws and reshape your smile for maximum beauty.
Dentures are oral appliances composed of a gum-colored acrylic base and artificial teeth made of porcelain or resin materials that match any existing teeth or the shade of your choice. They can be partial or complete, replacing all the teeth in the lower or upper arch or both.
Dental implants are surgically inserted titanium posts that can support any dental prosthesis, including a crown for a single tooth. With implants, dentures, and other dental prostheses, your teeth can function as well as your natural teeth without the worry of movement and slippage.
Inlays and onlays
Inlays are special dental prostheses used to augment a tooth affected by trauma or decay. Unlike dental crowns, inlays replace only a portion of the natural tooth rather than completely covering it.
A filling may be a good option if you have a small to the moderate-sized cavity. Dental fillings, a standard restorative treatment, can repair cavities and minor tooth damage to restore your dental function.
