Restorative Dentistry Q & A
What is restorative dentistry?
Restorative dentistry focuses on the health of your teeth and gums to improve both the look and function of your smile. Dr. Nusblatt follows the biomimetic approach, which reconstructs the teeth to emulate their natural biomechanical and esthetic form and function. It essentially means to mimic what is life-like while preserving as much of the natural tooth structure as possible.
Dr. Nusblatt’s goal is to restore broken, decayed, or damaged teeth to return their strength, function, and appearance.
Which dental problems can restorative dentistry fix?
Nusblatt Dental uses restorative treatments to correct a variety of dental concerns, including:
- Tooth decay
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- A bad bite
- Missing teeth
- Large gaps in teeth
- Tooth discoloration
Restoring your teeth can make chewing and speaking feel more comfortable if you have missing or damaged teeth. Without treatment, many dental concerns can lead to further tooth decay, tooth pain, gum inflammation, and more.
What are the most common restorative treatments in dentistry?
Some common restorative treatments that Nusblatt Dental offers include:
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that covers imperfections, such as chipped and cracked teeth while strengthening and protecting your tooth from further damage.
A dental bridge replaces a missing tooth by using your surrounding teeth to support a new false tooth.
Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace your natural tooth roots. If you have a missing tooth, they’re used to hold your new dental crown or dentures securely in place.
Dentures can replace some or all of the teeth in your mouth. These natural-looking prosthetic teeth are attached to a gum-colored acrylic base.
Composite fillings are a natural-looking alternative to traditional metal fillings. These tooth-colored fillings restore your teeth while maintaining a natural appearance.
Inlays and onlays
An inlay or onlay is a partial crown restoration that can be placed when there isn’t enough natural tooth structure to support a filling, but you also don’t need a full crown.
