5 Restorative Treatments That Can Improve Your Smile
Smile problems? Restorative dentistry refers to the integrated management of oral health problems and restoring the mouth to an esthetic and functional state. Dr. Charles Scholler is one of the finest dentists in Somis, CA. He offers a full range of dental services. Here are five restorative treatments that can help improve your smile.
Dental fillings are the most common type of dental restoration. Your dentist in Somis uses dental fillings to repair teeth that are affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. Your teeth can be filled with silver or gold amalgam, or tooth-colored composite resin fillings. As more people want natural-looking smiles, composite resin fillings have become increasingly popular.
Dental crowns are a tooth-shaped "caps" that are placed over teeth to restore their size and shape, strength and appearance. Dental crowns are used to restore chipped, weakened, badly decayed, cracked, discolored and damaged teeth. In many cases, crowns last up to 50 years. Maintaining good oral hygiene will help your crowns last longer.
Dental bridges are artificial teeth that are designed to bridge the gap creating by one or more missing teeth. A bridge can be supported by natural teeth, implants, or a combination of teeth and implants. In a traditional fixed bridge, not only can you fill the gap of the lost tooth, you can improve the color and shape of the teeth that you are crowning.
Dental veneers are ultra-thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front of the teeth. Dental veneers are routinely used to fix teeth that are broken, irregularly shaped, discolored, worn down, chipped, or misaligned. Veneers are very effective in covering up flaws and giving patients an appearance of a perfect smile. Dental veneers feel and look like real teeth.
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. They are placed into your jaw to hold replacement teeth. The dental implants are covered with permanent dental crowns. Missing teeth makes people appear older than they really are. Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
