Restorative Dentistry in Asheville, North Carolina

The goals of restorative dentistry are to improve oral function, restore the appearance of lost or damaged teeth, and repair their functionality. Numerous dental issues, such as cavities, tooth decay, chipped or broken teeth, missing teeth, and gum disease, are the targets of these operations. Additionally, restorative dentistry seeks to provide both good oral health and aesthetic improvement, in contrast to cosmetic dentistry, which is primarily focused on enhancing the appearance of teeth.

Some of the restorative techniques we use most often are explored below:

  • Dental fillings: Tooth-decay-related cavities are filled with dental fillings. To restore the tooth’s structure and function, they entail extracting the decayed area and replacing the empty space with porcelain or composite resin.
  • Crowns: Often referred to as caps, dental crowns are bespoke prosthetic restorations that completely enclose a damaged or weak tooth. When a tooth has had extensive decay, a fracture, or a root canal, they restore strength, protection, and beauty.
  • Dental Bridges: This preventive dentistry technique is used to bridge the space between neighboring teeth to replace one or more lost teeth. They consist of dental crowns cemented to the adjacent natural teeth or dental implants holding prosthetic teeth in place.
  • Dental Implants: Dental implants have remarkable durability and practicality, allowing them to function as a solid basis for the attachment of prosthetic teeth, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures.

In addition to restoring oral health and function, restorative dentistry has a significant positive influence on your general health and quality of life.
