Restorative dentistry covers a wide range of treatments and procedures that restore the stability and structure of damaged or missing teeth. At The Dental Design Studios in Houston, Texas, we offer advanced and reliable restorative dental procedures that can bring back your smile and restore your oral functions.
What Are Dental Restorations?
Restorative dentistry focuses on fixing and restoring broken or missing teeth. It encompasses a variety of treatments and procedures such as dental onlays, inlays, crowns, bridges, implants, veneers, and dental bonding.
Dental restorations have esthetic benefits as well as practical benefits as they restore your smile and your oral functions.
Popular Restorative Dentistry Procedures
While each case is unique, there are a few restorative dental procedures Dr. Hernandez performs on our patients on a regular basis.
When a tooth is severely affected by decay and cannot be repaired with fillings or inlays, dental crowns or caps are required. To shield the tooth from additional injury and restore its structure and functionality, this conventional restorative solution covers the entire tooth down to the gum line.
Fillings are by far the most popular restorative dental treatment. They are used to restore and strengthen the structural integrity of a tooth that has been weakened by cracks, cavities, or decay.
Dental implants are the recommended solution for patients who have suffered severe tooth damage or have missing teeth. Dental implants are embedded in the jawbone with the help of a screw-like metal root and are just as reliable as natural teeth.
Dental bonding is the most common restorative procedure used in dentistry for cracked or fractured teeth. To replace the lost tooth enamel, the dentist uses a special bonding material that matches your natural tooth color.
Bridges, like crowns, are used to restore a missing tooth. The procedure uses crowns placed on the healthy teeth on both sides of the gap left by the missing tooth to support an artificial tooth.
