Our modern technologies and treatments aim to restore your oral health to its absolute best. At Culp Dental, restorative dentistry may involve delicate or specialty procedures to treat even the smallest disturbances.
What Is Restorative Dentistry?
The goal of restorative dentistry is to restore the teeth to a functional and aesthetically pleasing state. Ultimately, we try to preserve your natural teeth and tooth structure as much as possible. However, in some instances, repairing or replacing teeth is necessary to maintaining excellent oral health. Filling an space that was created by losing a tooth helps prevent the shifting of the surrounding teeth, helps you chew more effectively, and can improve your appearance. Fixing broken teeth helps you look and feel better. It can also help prevent future tooth loss.
What Are Some Restorative Procedures?
The basic components of preventive oral care are good hygiene, healthy eating and regular checkups.
Fillings replenish the decayed area of the tooth and can also be used to repair cracked or broken teeth.
Crowns cover the teeth to restore their normal shape or size, strengthen them and improve their appearance.
Bridges are permanent appliances that replace one or more missing teeth by connecting the space between two teeth.
Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth and tissues.
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots that provide the foundation for replacement teeth made to match your natural teeth.
Root canal treatment can save an infected or badly decayed tooth by removing, cleaning and resealing a tooth’s nerve and pulp.
