Restorative dentistry comprises various treatments designed to restore and rebuild damaged, infected, or lost tooth structures. Unlike other body tissues, your teeth do not repair themselves, and when they become compromised, the condition will only worsen until they are addressed. At Grace & Leedy Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Lakewood, Colorado, we provide durable, realistic restorations that will not only reinstate your healthy smile but also restore and enhance its appearance.
What Is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry includes all the dental techniques that help restore the structure and functionality of your mouth. Our dental solutions focus on treating your tooth decay, infections, misaligned and missing teeth, and impaired oral structures. Our regular restorative treatments include composite fillings, dental crowns, bridges, dentures, dental implants, and many more.
Our Restorative Services
We may recommend a composite filling to restore decayed or chipped teeth. After removing the diseased area from your teeth, we will use a tooth-colored filling material to fill the cavities. A dental filling will avert the possibility of tooth decay.
Dental crowns are the most versatile restorative appliances. They are tooth-shaped caps that help safeguard an entire tooth. Our dental professionals recommend them after a root canal procedure or protect your chipped or cracked teeth. We use natural-looking porcelain and porcelain fused to metal to give your smile a more natural appearance.
Dental bondings can be used to rectify minor smile imperfections. The procedure involves the application of tooth-colored composite resin to the cracks, chips, gaps, and stains of your affected teeth. The material can be carefully polished to match your existing natural teeth.
A dental bridge can help restore one or more missing teeth in your smile. This procedure involves filling the space between your teeth and completing your smile aesthetics. The treatment involves creating a crown for either side of the void and placing a false tooth in between.
Our dentist uses a titanium implant to position a prosthetic tooth root under the gumline to replace your missing tooth. After this, we will use a synthetic tooth (crown) to conceal the implant post. Implants are a durable treatment option and the closest replacement of natural teeth.
Dentures are removable devices that can replace all or a few missing teeth in your dental arch. They are constructed from acrylic resin and can rest firmly in your gums. Dentures can reinstate your ability to chew and eat foods comfortably.
