What is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative Dentistry is the area of dentistry that focuses on repairing teeth. With the help of fillings, crowns and bridges, we focus on making your teeth beautiful and healthy
Crowns and bridges can repair issues, such as missing teeth, decays and cracks. They are prosthetic devices and are permanently fixed onto your existing teeth. These can be removed only by your dentist if and when required. Restoring damaged and decayed teeth will improve or repair your smile and give you normal functionality.
A crown can be placed on both front as well as back teeth and restores it back to its original shape and size after a large cavity, broken tooth, or root canal.
A bridge is similar to a crown, but instead of covering only one tooth it will include several teeth and will also aide in replacing missing teeth.
Crowns and bridges are great replacement options! While wearing your temporary crowns, be careful to avoid hard or sticky foods. In most situations, a crown or bridge will return you to normal function. If you do have a crown or bridge in a compromised area, your dentist may caution you to continue to avoid harder foods in that specific area.
