Restorative dentistry can help your smile look brand new if you have damaged or decayed teeth. If you’re a Halethorpe, MD resident who’s looking for a new dental home, Catonsville Dental Care is one of the best dentists’ offices in Baltimore County. Preventative care matters, and we want nothing more than for our patients to have healthy smiles and the ultimate confidence. Here are a few types of restorative dentistry.
Dental fillings are very common. We use fillings to replace decayed portions of your teeth that caused cavities. Fillings can last for several years, are natural-looking, and provide an intact tooth’s full functionality. The benefit of any of our tooth restorations is that they are mercy-free and incredibly safe.
If a crown is the best solution to restore your smile, one of our dentists will place this tooth-shaped-and-colored cap over a damaged, decayed, and cracked tooth to restore its size, shape, appearance, and strength. Our crowns are all-ceramic, making them very durable.
Bridges are another ideal solution for one or more missing teeth. During this restorative dentistry procedure, a false tooth replaces the missing one, and crowns placed on adjacent teeth hold the bridge in place. If you’re self-conscious or feel embarrassed about the gap in your smile that stems from a missing tooth, you no longer have to be. Bridges fill in these gaps as well as make it easier to eat normally.
An implant is yet another way to replace a missing tooth. It’s reassuring for patients to know about all of the available options. During this process, a metal screw replaces the root and anchors the implant in place. The benefit of implants is that dentists don’t have to carve down the adjacent teeth to install implants, and a dentist will place a tooth-colored crown over the implant to make it look natural.
Veneers are thin, porcelain shells bonded to a patient’s teeth to improve the tooth’s appearance. This restorative dentistry option is ideal for patients that have discolored, chipped, or misshapen teeth. Veneers are an alternative to braces. Composite bonding is also a perfect alternative that doesn’t involve removing much of, if any, of the original tooth. Invisalign is also another plausible option in less severe cases.
These are a mere few of the many tooth restoration options that we offer. If your smile is less than healthy or you’re not satisfied with its appearance, contact Catonsville Dental Care today.
