How Restorative Dental Care Can Help You
Whether you have an untreated cavity or a missing tooth, dental problems can harm your oral health and negatively affect your quality of life. Fortunately, restorative dental care can get your smile back on track. The goal of restorative dental care is to repair your smile and restore oral function. Here are some of the helpful restorative treatments we offer at Donald Kim, DDS, Family & Cosmetic Dentistry:
Tobacco use, a poor oral hygiene routine, and constantly sipping on sugary sodas or grazing on chips can greatly increase your risk of developing tooth decay. These are areas of weakened enamel. If these weakened areas are not remineralized, they will progress into small holes called cavities, which is permanently damaged enamel. Cavities must be filled with a special dental material to protect your inner tooth, called the pulp, from infection.
A cracked, broken, or chipped tooth can result from playing a contact sport without a mouthguard, grinding your teeth at night, or biting down on ice or a pen. While a dental filling can correct a small chip, a dental crown may be necessary to improve the appearance and strength of a tooth that is extensively damaged. We offer same-day crowns to restore your smile in just one visit.
A tooth replacement is in the best interest of your oral health and function when a tooth or several teeth are missing or beyond repair. A dental implant looks and feels natural, is permanent, and helps prevent jawbone deterioration and additional loss of neighboring teeth.
Benefits of Restorative Dental Care
Dental fillings, crowns, and implants all serve different purposes but are part of restorative dentistry. There are several other restorative treatments, but the one best suited for you will depend on your dental situation. Though restorative treatments are tailored to your situation, they all can improve your self-confidence, tooth function, oral health, and overall health.
