Posted on 4/26/2021 by Brian Rounds, DDS
Even though you may take excellent care of your teeth, at one time or another you may face certain dental issues that will necessitate repair of your tooth. The procedures performed to restore your teeth to their original shape, size, and function are known as restorative dental treatments.
At Brian K. Rounds, DDS, Brian K. Rounds, DDS and can perform minimally-invasive and effective restorative treatment on your teeth.
Dental fillings are the most common dental restoration procedures. This procedure is performed on teeth with mild to moderate cavities by removing the decayed part and filling the space with strong and durable material.
Dental filling materials include silver amalgam, gold, porcelain, and composite resin. Depending on the severity of the damage and the location of the tooth, we will determine which type of filling is appropriate for you.
Veneers are thin shells of high-grade porcelain that are custom-made to fit your tooth. Veneers are applied to the visible teeth in your mouth to protect weakened enamel, reduce sensitivity, or hide chipped or discolored teeth.
Veneers are one of the most preferred methods of improving the esthetics of your teeth.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are designed to cover the entire visible portion of your tooth. Typically, we will recommend a dental crown after your tooth has undergone tooth surgery like root canal therapy.
Crowns can be created from gold, silver, porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and some other material.
Dental bridges are non-removable appliances that bridge the gap created by missing teeth. These bridges are anchored with the help of your natural teeth or crowns.
Once these bridges are placed, they look and function like real teeth.
Dental implants are screw-like prosthetics that are placed on the site of a missing tooth. The implants are embedded into the jaw where they fuse with the bone to create a stable foundation for an artificial tooth.
They are topped by a dental crown and offer the most effective and long-lasting way to replace a missing tooth.
