Prosthetics serve as a substitute for teeth that are missing or damaged. Restorative dentistry comprises various treatments, some of which are detailed below.

Dental Bridges and Crowns

A dental bridge is a solution to replace a single missing tooth or a row of missing teeth. It comprises artificial teeth with dental crowns on each end. The dentist will modify your natural teeth on both sides of the gap. The bridge will then be affixed to your natural teeth. The crowns cover your natural teeth, while the artificial teeth fill the space between them.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a small threaded post used to replace a missing tooth root. Once your dentist attaches a crown to the implant, it functions just like a natural tooth. Your dentist can restore dental implants using crowns, bridges, or even dentures.

Traditional Dentures

Dentures are another traditional option for replacing teeth. Full dentures replace an entire set of missing teeth, while partial dentures replace multiple missing teeth in various locations. Dentures sit on top of your gums, supported by the underlying jawbone.

Dental Fillings

Dental fillings stand out as one of the most common procedures within restorative dentistry. They repair cavities that arise due to tooth decay. The decayed part of the tooth is removed, and the cavity is filled with materials such as composite resin, amalgam, or porcelain.

Inlays and Onlays

These represent indirect fillings made from porcelain, gold, or composite resin. Their main purpose is restoring teeth with mild to moderate decay or damage. Inlays are designed to fit within the cusps of a tooth, whereas onlays cover one or more cusps.

Dental Bonding

Bonding entails the application of a tooth-colored resin material onto the tooth surface and subsequently solidifying it with a specialized light. This procedure is employed to repair chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth, along with filling gaps between teeth.
