Benefits of Restorative Dentistry

Restorative Dentistry_Dr James Wong
Damaged and missing teeth not only interfere with your smile, but can make eating and chewing painful. You don’t have to live with pain, however, because restorative dentistry offers many solutions to fix teeth. The following are just some of the benefits of restorative dental solutions:

Eat and speak with ease.

Missing teeth can create speech irregularities and increase your risk of biting your cheek or tongue. Worse yet, damaged teeth can cause extreme pain while eating, so meals become a chore instead of something to be enjoyed. Replacing a missing tooth or repairing damaged teeth will solve the problem so you can live your life without these worries.

Improve your confidence with a healthy smile.

Damaged teeth can ruin a smile and make you feel anxious about going out or meeting new people. Treating teeth that are damaged, decayed, or missing can improve your smile, and a beautiful smile builds confidence and improves self-esteem. Elevated self-esteem can lead to a better job interview or a more fulfilling social life.

Healthy teeth make you look younger.

When teeth are missing or even severely damaged, the surrounding jawbone will deteriorate, leaving your face looking sallow and aged. When you restore teeth to their natural state, the jawbone will not deteriorate and in certain cases may even rebuild itself.

Relieve pain and discomfort through restorative dentistry.

Damaged teeth can be painful and allow infection to spread throughout the mouth and affect other teeth. Fixing the teeth means restoring the appearance and health of the tooth, which improves the health of your mouth.

Improve overall health.

It’s no secret that untreated infection in the mouth can spread to other areas of the body, including your heart. Unfortunately, many people don’t make this connection. Part of treating damaged teeth is treating infection and removing the source of the infection. Many times, the source of infection or decay can be removed while saving the tooth, which is the ideal outcome. The sooner you begin restorative dentistry, the more likely teeth will be saved instead of removed.

Restorative Dentistry Services at Elevated Dental

 
We offer restorative dentistry services for the benefit of our patients and their families. The following are some of the services we focus on and how they help.

Dental Fillings

When teeth succumb to decay that creates a hole in the tooth, a dental filling will be used to fill in the hole once the decay is cleaned away. Decay can result in cavities or other forms of damage to the teeth, including a tooth root. Having regular dental checkups can catch decay early before it spreads. Today’s dental fillings are made of composite and other natural materials to match your natural tooth, so you are the only one who knows it’s there.

Inlays and Onlays

When decay takes over a tooth, the damage may cover too large an area for a dental filling. In this case, an inlay or onlay may be used to repair the structure of your tooth. An inlay may be created using either composite or porcelain, and moulded to fit into the chewing surface of a damaged tooth to strengthen it. Onlays are similar, but cover more area and may fit into the cusps of a tooth as well as the chewing surface. These solutions are often used to save a tooth and the root while strengthening it at the same time.

Dental Crowns

Sometimes teeth may become damaged to the point that fillings, inlays, and onlays are not enough to restore it. But a dental crown can be created to match the shape and colour of your natural tooth, and placed over what it left to protect it.

When damage and decay find their way deep into a tooth, it can affect the root as well as damage a large portion of the tooth. In this case, a root canal may be done to clean out the infection and then a crown will be placed over the tooth, which protects the root and saves the tooth at the same time. This is a preferred solution over pulling the tooth, because saving the tooth saves your jawbone from deteriorating.

Dental Bridge

When one or more teeth are missing, a dental bridge may be the right solution to replace them. Dental bridges are a series of crowns used to replace the missing tooth or teeth, and then crowns at each end to anchor the prosthetic. They are a long-term solution to fix missing teeth and are more cost-effective than dental implants.

Dr James is an awesome dentist, I’ve had my pearly whites looked after by him for as long as I can remember and cannot fault his services. From cleaning to general filling, root canals and mouth guards, he does an excellent job. He is always mindful of your comfort and his staff are excellent too. Never had to do any rework because his work is top-notched. Thanks, James!
