Restorative Dentistry Q&A

What is restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry focuses on returning decayed, damaged, or lost teeth to a natural appearance and normal use. At the Alpha Omega Dental Center, the team possesses superior oral camouflage skills.

The main goal is creating restorations that match your natural teeth so precisely that nobody but your dentist can even tell it’s there. Whether you need a single tooth repair or a full mouth of teeth replacements, the Alpha Omega Dental Center team ensures that it looks completely natural.

How do you plan restorative dentistry procedures?

Alpha Omega Dental Center uses all of the latest technology to plan your restorative dentistry procedures. This can include radiographs to measure your jawbone/skull relationship; electro-diagnostics to check muscle, joint, and jaw function; and a digital T-Scan™ to evaluate the timing of your bite and how they will fit together after restoration, among many others.

What kind of procedures does restorative dentistry include?

Restorative dentistry may include a wide range of treatment approaches, as the Alpha Omega Dental Center team always personalizes your restoration procedures for your needs. Some of the different procedures you may need include:

Dental Implants

Dental implants are artificial roots, which looks like a screw, that are placed in your jaw. The implant serves as a replacement tooth root, and the custom abutment and crown replaces your tooth after a loss or extraction. Dental implants are permanent restorations.

Crowns

Crowns aren’t only for dental implants. They can also fit over your natural tooth when it’s severely worn, decayed, cracked, or broken to restore the tooth to full appearance and use.

Veneers

Veneers cover the front of your teeth to transform defects and flaws. They’re usually part of cosmetic dentistry treatments. But veneers, whether traditional or no-prep, do add some extra strength to your teeth.

Bonding

Like veneers, bonding is often a cosmetic dentistry treatment for the front of the teeth. Bonding can completely restore tooth appearance as well as repair the tooth after decay. Tooth-colored fillings are made of the same bonding material: composite resin.

By combining the above procedures, and possibly other dental care, you can achieve anything from a one-tooth repair to a full mouth rehabilitation.
