Dental restoration is considered a cosmetic procedure, but it is something that is not just prescribed for patients who wish to improve the appearance of their smile. Dental restorations can improve the appearance of your teeth, absolutely, but they can also improve your overall dental health. It all depends on what you need dental restoration for. Here at The Gentle Dentist, our Garden City cosmetic dentist
, Dr. Amit Sood, can determine whether you require this procedure in order to solve any dental issues or concerns that you may be experiencing.
Dental restoration actually encompasses a variety of different services and procedures that are provided here at The Gentle Dentist. One of the most common procedures performed are dental fillings. This type of dental restoration is used to fill in the area of tooth lost due to tooth decay. Fillings are used to close up cavities and prevent further decay from occurring. Dental fillings can be made of amalgam, gold or tooth colored resin, though the latter is used more often these days and is the most popular. Tooth colored resins are not only affordable, but they seamlessly match the color of your natural teeth and are virtually unnoticeable once the procedure is over. Additionally, resin fillings are safer, since amalgam fillings have been known to deteriorate over time and may contain mercury. Our Garden City cosmetic dentist
can also provide you with a variety of other dental restorative procedures. Dental crowns, bridges, inlays or onlays, and veneers are considered indirect restorations but are all used to restore the function and the appearance of your bite. Veneers or crowns may be applied for purely cosmetic reasons, such as covering up surface imperfections such as discoloration or misshapen teeth. Bridges are used to fill in a smile that is missing teeth, restoring your bite and relieving any stress on your jaw.
