Restorative Dentistry

Dr. David Miller on Restorative Dentistry Read Transcript

Your teeth serve several purposes. Of course they help you chew your food, but they also help you talk. People like to see a smiling face, so your teeth also affect your interactions with others. When your teeth are not working correctly or are missing altogether, you can have several problems. That’s why restorative dentistry from our Roseville, CA dentist office can be so helpful. By restoring your teeth, you will be improving how you chew, talk, and look.

How Can You Repair Cavities Without Metal Fillings?

Cavities are caused by bacteria secreting acid over time. When the bacteria sits on your teeth, the acid erodes your enamel and creates cavities. Enamel cannot be regrown, so the eroded area needs to be repaired with a filling. Metal fillings often include toxic mercury, and they also do not look good in your mouth. At our Roseville, CA dentist office, you can get metal-free inlays and onlays instead. Made from porcelain or zirconia matched to your teeth’s natural color, these seal up the damage. They protect your teeth and prevent the damage from getting worse.

What If My Tooth Has A Large Cavity?

If one of your teeth has a lot of damage from tooth decay or injury, an inlay or onlay might not be big enough. You need to keep the damaged area sealed so the damage doesn’t get worse. In these cases, you are better off getting a dental crown. These caps are made from porcelain or zirconia, so they will be very durable and still look great. We have a CEREC system in our Roseville, CA dentist office, so we can make and place dental crowns in just one visit. No waiting weeks for your dental crown to come back from the lab.

How Can You Replace A Missing Tooth?

If you need a replacement tooth to restore your teeth, you have several restorative dentistry options:

  • A dental bridge uses two crowns to hold onto a replacement tooth.
  • An implant-supported bridge has several replacement teeth in a row held in place by one or more dental implants.
  • A dental implant takes a replacement tooth and attaches it to an implanted root.
  • Dentures and All-on-4® can replace a full arch of teeth.

Can Dental Veneers Restore My Teeth?

If you have several chips and cracks on your teeth, restoring them to their original state is important. While there are different ways to do that, dental veneers are a great choice. By getting veneers, you will seal up damaged areas like cracks so they don’t get worse. But you’ll also cover up chips, stains, and similar imperfections.
