Mansfield dentists Dr. S. Blair Jones and Dr. D. Seth Harris have provided many happy patients with a variety of comprehensive dental treatments. Cosmetic dental work focuses on aesthetics. Preventive dentistry includes your checkups, cleanings, and oral cancer screenings every six months. Do you know what restorative dentistry is? Any time you have a cavity or any dental infection, restorative dentistry will take the approach of restoring as much of your natural tooth structure as possible while also sealing the area off from future infection.
Types of Dental Restoration
Dr. Jones and Dr. Harris offer a number of restorative dental procedures to patients. Fillings, inlays, and onlays are types of restorations designed to restore the health and function to your mouth when a decaying tooth has created dark cavities in the dentin. When decay goes deep into the roots and canals of teeth, you will require a root canal procedure. Your teeth are deeply cleaned free of infection which has gone through dentin and into the dental pulp. After that, your tooth is sealed and restored with a dental crown. Most crowns are now made from porcelain, though on the back molars a porcelain-fused-to-metal crown helps restore form and function.
A Cosmetic Spin to Restorative Procedures
A beautiful, confident smile is essential to your self-esteem. While the looks of your smile may seem like something which falls solely under the umbrella of cosmetic procedures, there are elements of your appearance which are improved with restorative work. Severely decaying teeth are visually noticeable. They can also become quite uncomfortable. In this way, a filling, inlay, onlay, or crown won’t just make you feel better but also look better. Thanks to the use of color-matched composite-resin or porcelain, your dental restorations will appear as if they belong in your mouth, matching with your surrounding smile flawlessly.
