Tooth restorations define the many ways dentists repair or replace teeth. Fortunately, the amount of tooth decay has been declining throughout the years, thanks to increased patient awareness and the use of fluorides.

What are examples of Tooth Restorations?

Fillings: Dentists first remove the decayed tooth material, clean the affected area and apply the filling material. There are gold fillings, amalgam (silver) fillings, composite (plastic) fillings and porcelain fillings.

Crowns: Also known as “cap”, a crown is placed over the tooth to reconstruct its shape, size, strength and appearance.

Bridges: Teeth that are designed to “bridge” the gap created by one or more missing teeth are called bridges. Bridges can be held securely by crowns and cemented lastingly into place.

Implants: Implants (replacement tooth roots) provide a powerful foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to mirror your natural teeth.

Dentures: Made of acrylic resin, dentures are a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues.
