Fillings and Restorations treatment in Navi Mumbai

Tooth Fillings and Restorations

If you have a missing tooth or parts of your teeth are missing, you might need tooth restoration treatment. Decay or deterioration of a previously placed restoration may lead to damage to parts of teeth or cause a tooth to fracture. Following are examples of dental restoration treatments:

  • Fillings
    These are the commonest types of dental restoration treatments. These treatments involve filling teeth with materials like silver amalgam, gold, and composite resins.
  • Crowns
    Crowns are cap-shaped devices that look very similar to normal teeth. When placed over a tooth, they restore its shape, size, appearance, and strength.
  • Bridges
    If there are gaps between your teeth created by one or more missing teeth, this treatment may be recommended for you. Bridges are fake teeth that are designed to fill up those gaps. Bridges are permanently cemented by anchoring them on either side by crowns.
  • Implants
    Dental implants are replacement devices for the roots of the teeth. They are small materials made of metal to be placed in the bone socket of the missing teeth.
  • Dentures
    Dentures are composed of acrylic resin and metal attachments that serve as a removable replacement for missing teeth and tissues. Your dentures can be partial or complete, depending on if they replace all the teeth or some of them.

Fillings are materials specially designed by your dentists to fill tooth decay due to cavities or defects on the surface of teeth. They are a type of restoration treatment as they help restore the normal appearance and function of the teeth.

Dental restorations help give you a better smile besides helping you with the ability to chew food better and speak clearer.
