The primary goal of restorative dentistry is to restore the teeth’ natural form, function, and appearance, improving oral health and overall well-being.
These are used to repair teeth affected by cavities or for minor decay. Dental fillings involve removing the decayed portion of the tooth and filling the space with materials such as composite resin, amalgam, or porcelain.
Crowns, also known as caps, cover and protect severely damaged or weakened teeth. They restore the tooth’s strength, shape, and function, enhancing its appearance.
Bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth. They consist of artificial teeth, called pontics, anchored in place by dental crowns on adjacent healthy teeth or dental implants.
Dentures are removable appliances used to replace multiple missing teeth. They can be partial dentures, which replace some missing teeth, or complete dentures, which replace all teeth in the upper or lower jaw.
