Restorative dental procedures from your dentist in Lethbridge, AB, can save your smile
How much do you know about restorative dentistry? Did you know restorative dentistry goes far beyond simple drilling and filling? The truth is restorative dentistry can repair and restore even the most damaged smile.
Dr. Adam Byam at All West Dental in Lethbridge, AB, offers a wide variety of dental services, including restorative dentistry procedures to save your smile.
Restorative dentistry can:
- Restore damaged teeth, so you can chew your food again
- Enhance broken down teeth, so you can be proud of your smile again
- Rebuild your smile if you are missing teeth, so you can smile again
Let’s look at some of the most common restorative dentistry services, and how they can save your smile:
Dental fillings can repair a cavity caused by tooth decay. Dental filling material begins as a liquid or solid that your dentist can sculpt into position. The material then hardens, giving you a strong restorative treatment that will last. If you choose tooth-colored fillings, these are made with composite which blends in perfectly with your smile, giving you the aesthetic benefits your smile needs.
Dental crowns can restore broken or missing tooth structure, giving you a strong smile. A dental crown covers the entire visible surface of your tooth above the gumline, reinforcing your tooth and protecting it from strong biting stress. If you choose a full porcelain crown, there are cosmetic benefits too, because porcelain blends right in with your smile and looks completely natural.
Dental bridges can replace missing teeth, giving you a complete, beautiful smile, and full chewing strength. A dental bridge consists of prosthetic teeth, known as pontics, which are suspended over the space. The adjacent teeth are crowned, and the bridge is cemented in place.
Dental implants are another popular way to replace missing teeth. In fact, they are the closest to having your natural teeth. They are natural-looking, and completely stable because they are embedded in bone. You never remove dental implants; they become a permanent part of your smile.
These are just a few of the restorative procedures that can benefit your smile. To discover more about the benefits of restorative dentistry, talk with an expert. Call Dr. Adam Byam of All West Dental in Lethbridge, AB, at (403) 380-3300. Call now!
