Restorative dental services will repair structural issues with your teeth, such as breaks or cracks, in order to enhance the function of your pearly whites. Crowns, bridges, and fillings are some of the most commonly used dental restoration materials. Discover which restorative dentistry procedures are available to you.
A composite filling procedure involves the use of a tooth-colored resin material to restore the functionality of broken or decayed teeth. They are cosmetically appealing and may last longer than other types of fillings.
Inlays and onlays are used in restorative dentistry to repair broken tooth surfaces and fill cavities. An inlay dental procedure is similar to getting a tooth filled, and modern inlay material is designed to match the color of your teeth. Onlay preparation will measure the size and structure of your existing tooth to give you a natural-feeling replacement.
Flexible partial dentures restore the function and appearance of broken or missing teeth. Partial dentures are also a good alternative for patients who do not qualify as implant candidates. There are many types of partial denture materials to choose from, including porcelain, resin, and acrylic.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a new approach to tissue regeneration and it is becoming a valuable adjunct to promote healing in many procedures in dental and oral surgery, especially in aging patients. The substance is a by-product of blood (plasma) that is rich in platelets. During the outpatient surgical procedure a small amount of your own blood is drawn out via the IV. This blood is then placed in the PRP centrifuge machine and spun down. In less than 15 minutes, the PRP is formed and ready to use.
Crown lengthening is a common surgical procedure. The surgeon removes gum tissue, bone or both to expose more of a tooth. Crown lengthening is done when a tooth needs to be fixed. Sometimes, not enough of the tooth sticks out above the gum to support a filling or crown. It also can happen when a crown or filling falls out of a tooth and there is decay underneath. During the dental crown lengthening procedure, excess gum and bone tissue is reshaped to expose more of the natural tooth. Dentists call this “gummy smile.”
