Dental restorations is a process by which damaged teeth are restored to a natural state, and in some cases are even stronger than previously! The process of decay over time that effects the tooth enamel, gums and jawbone of a patient, or the case of physical trauma to the tooth or tissues surrounding the teeth, make the need for dental restorations a common thing today. Through the restoration process, the dentist will use composite materials and surgical procedures to restore the function and integrity of a missing or damaged tooth.
There are many aspects of dental restorations that involve different procedures and materials, the best of which will be determined for your individual case by your dentist. The restoration may be able to be completed using a filling material, or in some cases an inlay or onlay, implant or other physical structure may be necessary.
