What Is Dental Restoration?

Dental restoration is the process of restoring the shape, function, appearance, and health of your teeth, gums, and mouth. With dental restoration, your St. Louis dentist is able to treat whatever aspects of your oral health require attention and perform dental procedures that allow you the ability to chew, drink, speak, and smile comfortably and without difficulty. When you have a damaged tooth or teeth, dental restoration addresses your cosmetic concerns, your comfort, and the functional health of your teeth and gums.

You should seek dental restoration services from your trusted St. Louis area family dentist when your oral health has been affected. Dr. Cutrona and the dental staff at Plaza Dental Center can provide expert dental restoration services to your St. Louis family. When you or a family member experience a cracked, chipped, broken, or otherwise damaged tooth, dental restoration allows you a simple procedure to improve the appearance of your smile while also repairing the tooth or teeth and protecting you from additional pain, sensitivity, and other complications. When a broken tooth leaves you insecure and embarrassed or begins to cause you difficulty eating or pain when chewing, schedule a dental restoration appointment right away.  Dr. Cutrona and the Plaza Dental Center team will get you in to perform the dental restoration treatments that are best for you right away.

Dental Restoration Treatments

To restore your oral health and the appearance of your smile, a variety of dental restoration services are available. Plaza Dental Center is ready to perform the treatments that meet your oral health needs. Depending on your situation, you may need dental restoration in the form of fillings, crowns, bridges, implants, dentures, or gum contouring.

Gum Recontouring. Sometimes, a patient’s gums grow and extend to cover more of the tooth’s surface than is typical or desired. If you are self-conscious about your smile looking too “gummy” or your gums bother you when you eat or drink, gum recontouring may be the dental restoration method for you. Using a special laser, your Plaza Dental Center dental restoration dentist will gently and painlessly shape your gum line as desired.

Fillings. Fillings, most often used to treat minor to moderate cavities, are a form of dental restoration. Using a composite material, tooth fillings are applied to the affected tooth and hardened for a permanent bond. In most cases, we apply tooth-colored fillings rather than the traditional silver or gold amalgam fillings, which tend to draw more attention rather than blend in with the natural teeth.

Dental Crowns. For teeth that have damage beyond what a filling is able to address, dental restoration may be done by way of a crown. A dental crown is a tooth-colored porcelain cap that fits over the top of the existing tooth. In this type of dental restoration, your dentist will first remove all remaining damaged or infected parts of the tooth, then makes a mold of the tooth to form a natural-looking crown that will fit exactly over the tooth.

Dental Bridges. If you are missing a tooth or multiple teeth but the majority of your teeth are still healthy, you may benefit from a bridge. A restorative dentistry bridge is a type of implant. Known also as a fixed partial denture, the bridge is made up of one or more artificial teeth made to bridge the gap between a patient’s natural teeth. It is fixed in the mouth by a crown placed on either side of the gap. Your Plaza Dental Center dental team will fashion you a bridge of nearly undetectable natural-looking teeth for your bridge.

Dentures. Full and partial dentures are a dental restoration method that best serve patients who are missing many or all of their teeth. While implants are permanently fixed in the mouth, dentures are able to be removed. When you require dentures, trust the Plaza Dental Center team to create long-lasting, realistic full or partial dentures that will give you a brilliant smile and restore your ability to talk, chew, and drink with comfort and confidence.
