No matter how rigorous your brushing and flossing routine might be, at some point restorative dental care may be necessary. The purpose of restorative dentistry is to help patients reclaim good oral health, and even appearance, through a variety of services.
Two of the most common restorative dentistry services include:
- Dental Fillings
- Dental Crowns
With both, your Tyler restorative dentist can help you treat varying degrees of decay and, in most cases, within just one or two visits.
Many dentists use tooth-colored fillings over metal fillings to help patients repair their smiles. Tooth-colored fillings, also known as composite fillings, are durable and support the natural structure of teeth, ensuring long-lasting results and good oral health. Restoring a tooth with tooth-colored fillings takes just a single appointment to complete.
Dental crowns typically take two appointments to complete. Made from durable dental porcelain, crowns cap vulnerable teeth, protecting them from further damage or decay. In your first appointment, your Tyler restorative dentist will prep your tooth and design your crown. Then, after a lab has made your customized restoration, it’ll be put in place, completing your crown procedure.
Other restorative dentistry services include:
- Root Canal Therapy
- Dental Implants
- Full-Mouth Reconstruction
