Understanding Your Smile Goals
The goal of restorative dentistry is to restore teeth to a functional and aesthetically pleasing state while preserving as much of the natural tooth structure as possible. Our goal is not just to cover up your imperfections, but to restore function and health. We also take into consideration your own goals for your smile, past experiences with the dentist and prior treatments, and health needs when designing your restorative treatment plan.
Restorative Dentistry Treatments in Mount Pleasant MI
Because of the variety of dental treatments available for dental restoration, you now have many different options for repairing worn, decayed, damaged or missing teeth and restoring your smile. Each patient’s restorative plan will be different, but is often a combination of the below restorative dentistry treatments:
- Dental Crown: Artificial teeth that cover over damaged teeth to restore their functioning.
- Dental Bridges: A means of replacing missing teeth using a crown over the empty space, supported by two adjacent crowned teeth.
- Dental Implants: Dental implants replace missing teeth with crowns mounted on titanium implant screws that serve as the root of the tooth.
- Teeth Whitening: Teeth whitening is a popular tooth restoration procedure that focuses on the aesthetic appeal of your teeth. Discoloration or stains on your enamel due to normal eating and drinking habits can leave you with a less than appealing smile.
- Porcelain Veneers: Porcelain veneers are made of composite or porcelain laminates that are placed over damaged, chipped or crooked teeth and adhered with a bonding agent. If you have been unsuccessful with teeth whitening treatment, porcelain veneers are a viable alternative.
- Composite Bonding: Composite bonding is used to restore chipped, broken, decayed or discolored teeth. A composite material that looks like enamel is applied to the surface of a tooth or cavity and then shaped to repair flaws.
- Full Mouth Reconstruction: Full mouth reconstruction is used to correct functional or mechanical problems with your teeth, muscles, bone structure and bite.
