Dental restoration procedures can help you regain the smile that you lost. Your improved smile will give you a confidence boost since you no longer have to worry about what others think about the way your teeth look. The condition of your teeth is one of the first things people notice about you. Healthy teeth make you appear younger and more attractive, while badly damaged or stained teeth make you appear less attractive and older.
Fortunately, there is a dental restoration procedure for pretty much any dental condition you can think of. Once your teeth are restored by your dentist, it is up to you to take proper care of them.
Fillings are dental composites that fill holes in your teeth known as cavities. Fillings improve the integrity of the tooth and ward off tooth decay.
Root canals address cases of tooth decay where the decay has reached the pulp and the nerves inside. Root canals are a straightforward procedure that often involves the use of a crown to protect the repaired tooth.
A veneer is a thin shell that covers the front of a tooth. It hides any imperfections on the tooth behind it and looks just like your natural teeth. It is a great way to immediately restore your smile.
Tooth extractions are necessary for several reasons including to treat teeth with damaged structures or an infection. There are two types of extractions commonly performed: simple and surgical. A simple extraction is when the tooth is above the gumline and requires professional removal, while a surgical extraction requires the cutting of gum or bone tissue.
