Keep Smiling with Restorative Dentistry

Dental care is a combination of prevention and treatment. Although preventing disease or injury is the best way to protect dental health, sometimes your teeth need support after experiencing damage or infection.

Restorative dentistry includes several procedures for protecting and restoring teeth, and it incorporates treatments from other dental fields, including endodontics, prosthodontics, and periodontics.

Marks Dentistry offers restorative dentistry solutions to help patients achieve a stronger bite and longer-lasting smile.

Restorative Dentistry Goals

Restorative dentistry has 3 main goals:

Types of Restorative Treatments

Restorative dentistry solutions include fillings, bonding, crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, implants, and dentures.

Fillings & Bonding

Many patients worry about cavities and the need for fillings, but most fillings are simple, painless procedures. A dentist uses either tooth-coloured or metal materials to fill tiny holes caused by tooth decay. Fillings prevent further deterioration and tooth pain.

Dental or tooth bonding is similar to fillings but is generally considered a cosmetic procedure. Bonding uses composite resins (tooth-coloured materials) to fill cavities, repair cracks, or cover discoloured teeth.

Crowns and bridges are artificial replacements for restoring missing teeth or substantially damaged tooth structures.

The name “crown” is appropriately descriptive, as crowns sit on the natural tooth. The crown or cap can help restore size, shape, and function.

Bridges use 2 healthy teeth as support to replace a missing or damaged tooth, bridging the gap. The 2 support points are like caps over the natural teeth, providing structure for the artificial tooth.

Bridges are sometimes created as an alternative to dental implants, as they have a shorter recovery time.

Inlays and onlays are similar to crowns, as they cover a missing or damaged tooth. However, inlays and onlays generally restore smaller areas, maintaining much of the natural tooth. Inlays insert a small piece of artificial tooth, whereas onlays are laid overtop the tooth. As a result, they can be less invasive than a crown, with a lower risk of future decay.

After tooth loss or extraction, a dental implant can permanently replace the missing tooth. An oral surgeon or periodontist attaches the artificial tooth or implant to the patient’s jawbone, creating a durable hold.

Dentures are sets of prosthetic teeth. They can be removable or fixed and are used to replace multiple missing teeth.

At Marks Dentistry, we offer custom dentures. Durable, comfortable, and visually appealing, your dentures will blend in for a natural smile. For your convenience, we have an in-house denturist who comes in once a week to help create durable, comfortable, and visually appealing dentures that will blend in for a natural smile. Most dentures don’t require surgery, but your dentist may recommend implant-supported dentures depending on your needs.

Dentures can be crafted for your upper and lower jaw to restore your bite or how you chew. Dentures can also help with speech impediments caused by missing teeth.

Restorative vs. Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic and restorative dentistry can share many similarities, particularly in materials and procedures. Although both can improve the appearance of your teeth, restorative dentistry focuses on more than appearance.

Cosmetic or aesthetic dental procedures are elective or not medically necessary. For example, teeth whitening makes patients feel good about their smiles. Although the colour of your teeth doesn’t affect how you chew, it can boost your confidence.

Restorative dentistry may use veneers or dentures, which can improve your smile. But the main purpose is to preserve function and protect dental health. Additionally, restorative dentistry treatment is typically needed after disease or injury.
