Dental Tooth Restoration Treatment

Tooth restoration or restorative dentistry involves replacing missing or damaged teeth. If your teeth are missing, decayed, weakened or fractured, you might need a dental restoration. Examples of dental restoration services include fillings, crowns, implants, bridges and dentures.

Tooth restoration is important for the health of your mouth and some benefits are:

  • Filling empty spaces in the mouth helps keep teeth properly aligned
  • Replacing teeth makes it easier to maintain good oral care habits to help prevent plaque build-up and the problems plaque can lead to
  • Missing teeth can affect your health, appearance and self-esteem

The most common and popular tooth restoration service is composite fillings. However, teeth restoration treatment options include crowns, bridges and implants. We have our own in-house dental laboratory and are fully digitised in our making of inlays/onlays, veneers, crowns and bridges. Our dental laboratory works with the latest ceramic materials and we invite all our patients to see and experience our high-tech environment.

In keeping with the Snö philosophy of minimally invasive and pain-free dentistry, we focus more on restoring the functionality and health of your teeth, and less on cosmetic dentistry objectives. All our restorative work comes with a 2-year warranty, at least. We believe in the quality of our workmanship and always endeavour to preserve your natural, healthy teeth. All our recommendations are built on our thorough Snö exam and additional tests, as needed.

  • What is teeth restoration exactly?

    The goal of tooth restoration is to keep as much of the natural tooth and dental function as possible while preventing additional deterioration, ensuring that your teeth live a long and healthy life. Fillings, inlays, onlays, veneers, crowns, bridges, dentures, and dental implants can all be used in teeth restoration procedures

  • What is a tooth crown?

    Tooth crowns, or as sometimes referred to as dental crowns, are caps that are placed on top of broken or decayed teeth. When fillings fail to remedy the problem, crowns are utilized to preserve, cover, and restore the contour of your teeth. Metals, porcelain, resin, and ceramics are all options for dental crowns. They usually don’t require any extra attention over time, except from maintaining proper dental hygiene.

  • What is a dental bridge?

    Dental bridges can be used to fix — or bridge — gaps in your smile if you have missing teeth. A dental bridge is an artificial tooth (referred to as a pontic) held in place by abutment teeth on each side of the gap. Pontics can be constructed of a variety of materials, including gold, but they’re usually made of porcelain to blend in with your natural teeth.

  • What is the process in getting a dental bridge?

    Obtaining a dental bridge necessitates multiple appointments. The first session will involve prepping the tooth if the bridge will be supported by a natural tooth. Your tooth will need to be shaped, similar to dental crowns, to act as an anchor for the bridge to have a secure ‘pier’ to sit on. After your teeth have been reshaped, your dentist will take impressions to obtain precise bite measurements for the bridge production process. While you wait for your custom bridge to be built, you’ll be given a temporary bridge. The average wait time is four weeks. After receiving your bridge, your dentist will schedule a second visit with you to place it. After inserting your bridge, they may make minor modifications to the contour to guarantee the best fit.

  • How long do dental restorations last for after completed?

    On average, dental crowns endure 10 to 15 years. The average lifespan of dental bonding is four to eight years. Porcelain veneers can last anywhere from 15 to 20 years. Composite resin fillings have a five- to seven-year lifetime. Amalgam fillings, on the other hand, endure 10 to 15 years. All of these figures are averages and do not represent a guarantee. To get the most years out of your restorations, it’s critical to take excellent care of them and attend regular check-ups with one of our dentists.

  • How am I expected to care after my teeth right after a dental restoration?

    Your dentist may advise you to adjust your food and drinking habits for the next 24 hours after dental restoration. To keep your teeth and gums healthy, eat soft foods and cold foods. Try a warm soup if you can bear the heat. After any operation, you must brush and floss your teeth on a daily basis. To avoid dislodging a temporary repair, your dentist may instruct you to only floss in one direction and draw the floss through.

  • What are the benefits of teeth restoration?

    Dental restorations not only improve your chewing ability, but they also help you talk more clearly and improve your smile. This procedure additionally aids in the preservation of your teeth.

  • Are there any risks involved in a teeth restoration procedure?

    After a dental restoration operation, the most prevalent risk is sensitivity or general discomfort. It is very rare that we see infections or adverse reactions to the metals used. Dental restorations pose little dangers, however, crowns, for example, can chip, loosen, or fall out (permanent crowns do not). Root canals or tooth removals may be required if you have extensive cavities or wait too long to have them fixed. If you face an issue after a teeth restoration procedure sees your dentist right away.
