What are dental restorations?

Dental restorations complete or enhance your smile or strengthen weak teeth. Affordable Dental East offers two primary types of restorations: direct and indirect.

Direct restorations can be completed in one visit to the office. For example, a filling for a cavity restores a tooth affected by minor decay. Dr. Mohrman uses a tooth-colored resin for fillings, allowing your filling to blend right in with your existing teeth.

Indirect restorations require multiple visits to the office. Examples include:

  • Crowns: porcelain caps that cover the visible portion of the tooth
  • Onlays: repair that’s placed only on a small part of the tooth’s surface
  • Inlays: restoration placed in the cusps of the teeth
  • Implants: metal posts placed in the jawbone to replicate the tooth root 
  • Bridges: prosthetic teeth anchored by crowns to fill in gaps left by missing teeth

All dental restorations are customized to match your natural tooth color exactly, so you can smile with confidence. 

How do restorations help my smile?

Dental restorations help make your smile look complete and beautiful. You might choose a restoration to:

  • Fill in gaps between teeth 
  • Replace decayed or damaged teeth
  • Fortify weakened teeth

Restorative dentistry improves your bite and makes dental hygiene easier. When your smile is complete, you don’t have to worry about your teeth shifting or muscles atrophying and changing your appearance.

Dental restorations may require several visits to complete. But Dr. Mohrman’s caring chairside manner helps you understand the entire process and feel at ease each step of the way. Some patients require multiple restorations to complete their smile. 

Why should I consider a dental restoration?

Dental restorations improve the look and function of your smile. They can boost your confidence and improve your oral health. Restorations look and act just like your natural teeth, so you don’t have to worry about slipping — as you do with dentures — or dietary restrictions. 

You care for dental restorations just like you do your natural teeth. Commit to brushing twice daily, flossing, and coming to Affordable Dental East for regular professional cleanings.
