Restorative dentistry involves the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of any oral health issues. Here at Gassler Dental, we offer a wide range of restorative dentistry treatments and procedures to help you restore damaged, decayed, or missing teeth.
Some of our restorative dentistry services include:
Most people need at least one filling in their lifetime. While they are typically used to treat cavities so you can avoid pain and infection, fillings can also repair cracked, broken, or worn down teeth. But that’s not all. Since composite fillings are made out of a tooth-colored material, this dental restoration not only helps keep your smile working and feeling great but also helps keep it looking great too.
Sometimes decayed, cracked, or fractured teeth are not sufficiently damaged enough to warrant a crown. In these instances, inlays/onlays are used to restore your smile. Instead of covering or replacing the entire tooth, inlays/onlays are bonded onto the damaged section of your tooth so that some of your original tooth structure can be conserved. In addition to restoring the function, feel, and appearance of your damaged tooth, inlays/onlays also strengthen your tooth to prevent future damage.
If you have a broken tooth, broken filling, decayed tooth, or a weak tooth following a root canal, your smile may benefit from a crown. A dental crown is a custom-made cap that covers a damaged tooth to bring it back to its original function and appearance. Crowns are so effective at matching the size, shape, and color of the rest of your smile that most people can’t even tell the difference between a crown and original tooth.
This dental restoration is a great option if you are hoping to fill the space created by missing teeth. With your natural teeth on both sides acting as anchors for the bridge in between, dental bridges literally bridge the gap in your smile. Replacing your missing teeth with a dental bridge restores your bite and helps keep the natural shape of your face so that you can keep looking and feeling great.
