The Long-Term Value of Restorative Dental Care
Whether caused by routine wear or damaged by accidental trauma, teeth can become worn and damaged. Even with routine professional cleanings and preventive home care, patients with damaged smiles are left vulnerable to tooth infection, gum disease, and a number of other dental issues. Without proper restorative care, many may find themselves in need of extensive treatments to restore function, health, and aesthetics to the smile.
Often called restorative dentistry, restorative dental treatments are those designed to reinforce or replace damaged teeth in order to restore health and function to the entire smile. This wide subset of includes a wealth of procedures, many of which are cosmetically driven. As a result, many patients who pursue restorative dental care enjoy renewed, natural looking smiles.
Comprehensive Restoration Options in Boston
Arch Street Dental is proud to offer a number of restoration treatment options, each of which are personalized to your unique smile. Depending on your dental needs, your customized treatment plan may include one or more of the following treatments:
Conservative Dental Restorations
Fillings: Made of tooth-colored resin, dental fillings are ideal for filling chips and cracks in teeth. For patients with small cavities, our Boston dentist will use composite fillings to restore damaged teeth, leading to a natural looking yet fully restored tooth.
Crowns: In cases where teeth have been severely cracked, compromised by cavity, or have undergone root canal therapy, patients may need more comprehensive coverage. Our Boston dentist offers porcelain crowns, which are customized to fit over damaged teeth, thus reinforcing the strength of the tooth. Porcelain dental crowns are made to precisely match the shade of neighboring teeth, leaving patients with a uniform smile.
Restorations for Missing Teeth
For patients missing one or more teeth, our Boston dentist offers a number of tooth replacement options, each of which are created to your specific tooth loss needs. Some of our options include:
Bridges: With this treatment, false teeth are supported by two crowns, which are attached to healthy neighboring teeth. As bridges are made of porcelain, they provide patients with a resilient teeth replacement option.
Dentures: For individuals missing multiple teeth, full dentures and partial dentures are often more effective treatment options. Dentures are often recommended in cases where all teeth are missing from an arch, whereas partial dentures are recommended for patients who still have a number of healthy teeth, and need to fill the gaps.
Dental Implants: Considered the golden standard of restorative care, dental implants provide patients with a permanent option when replacing missing teeth. Rather than sitting above the gums, dental implants are placed into the jaw, creating a sturdy foundation for future restorations.
