Duration: 90 minutes
Dental Restoration is the act of repairing and replacing damaged teeth. It comes in a variety of techniques.
Fillings can be implemented for decay. Once the decayed portion is removed, we replace the area with a filling material to help get your bite back to normal.
Duration: 40-60, minutes depending on the number per area of your mouth.
Crowns reform the tooth if it has been damaged or is sensitive. They can also be employed to cap a dental implant, or to case the tooth for cosmetic appeal, such as covering a severely misshaped or discolored tooth.
Duration: 90 mins, more time if more than one crown is to be prepared.
Bridges fill gaps between teeth. It is important to get missing teeth replaced quickly otherwise the neighboring teeth can shift and become displaced due to the missing support. A prosthetic bridge tooth is placed in between two crowns. Bridges come in a variety of materials and can last up to 30 years.
Inlays and onlays are used when only a portion of a tooth needs to be repaired. The damaged area is removed and replaced with a prosthetic copy. They are used when a tooth isnt damaged enough to require a crown.
