Options for restoring or replacing false teeth fall under the field of restorative dentistry. Restorative Dentistry focuses on repairing or replacing missed teeth while improving the overall oral health and function.

Types of Dental Restorations

Depending on unique oral health needs, there are several options of dental restorations. In this section we will briefly explain them.

Dental Fillings

Extensive decay can cause a hole in the teeth which is known as a cavity. Smaller cavities are usually repaired through dental fillings. In this process, the dentist removes the bacteria and fills the emptied cavity with a synthetic material that mimics the look and feel of your teeth. This is a common and popular dental restorative process that prevents further decay and damage.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are used to manage large cavities or restore broken teeth. It is a covering that takes support from a small part of the tooth supported by the jaw. It is often called a cap as it fits over the entire tooth.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges replace one or more lost teeth in a row. While some are implant supported other options for dental bridges are crown supported. As the name suggests, they quite literally bridge the gap between your teeth.

Dental implants

Dental implants offer more stability in replacing missing teeth. Your dentist surgically places the implant in your jawbone that serves as a root of the missing teeth.

Dentures

Dentures are another traditional way of replacing teeth. dentures can replace an entire arch of missing teeth. partial dentures can replace several in many areas. Dentures sit on top of the gum, on the jawbone. Dentures can be supported by clasps or implants providing greater stability.
