What is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry refers to the integrated management of oral health problems. It includes dental crowns, caps, and veneers used to restore functionality and aesthetics. The ultimate goal of restorative dentistry is to replace missing teeth while preserving natural teeth as much as possible. At Macleod Trail Dental, we offer restorative procedures such as dental implants, crowns, bridges and full or partial dentures to promote dental health.

Replacing missing teeth is important. Otherwise, gaps are vulnerable to plaque-causing bacteria which can cause cavities and tooth decay. It is essential to replace missing teeth because such gaps are vulnerable. Additionally, missing teeth will put unnatural stress on your remaining teeth. Eventually, this can shift their natural alignment and potentially caused a collapsed bite and loss of vertical dimension.

Restorative Dentistry Services

Restorative dentistry procedures involve the diagnosis and treatment of oral conditions affecting the teeth, gums and jaw. Some of the services we offer at Macleod Trail Dental include:

  • Dental Crowns: Dental crowns are used to restore cracked, chipped or otherwise damaged teeth. They are cemented into place to fully support the portion of your tooth that sits at and above the gum line. Our dentists take the utmost care and time to match the color of dental crowns to your natural teeth. Thus, creating a natural look and feel.
  • Dental Bridge: Dental bridges are an efficient restorative dentistry solution for patients suffering from missing teeth. During the dental bridge procedure, replacement teeth are fitted into the gaps where tooth loss has occurred. Dental crowns are then used to attach replacement teeth to the adjacent ones. This provides sturdy and natural results.
  • Cosmetic Dentures: At Macleod Trail Dental, we offer our patients several different types of dentures. Including full, partial and immediate cosmetic dentures. Our dentists can help you determine the type of denture that is most natural and appropriate for your individual needs and aesthetic goals.
  • Dental Implants: Dental implants are an effective restorative dentistry solution. They offer secure and natural looking teeth for patients who have experienced tooth loss due to injury or disease. During the procedure, titanium posts are embedded into the jawbone to replace the natural tooth root and secure your dental crown.

Restorative Dentistry Benefits

Restorative Dentistry procedures can improve the health of your teeth with little to no downtime. Additionally, they enhance the appearance of your smile.  Advantages of restorative dentistry include:

1. Conservation of tooth structure

We believe that one of the most crucial aspects of good dentistry is the conservation of your natural tooth structure. Restorative dental procedures allow us to treat the tooth in question by removing only the decay and undermined tooth structure and maintaining the integrity of your remaining natural tooth.

2. Improved appearance

Restorative dentistry techniques will dramatically improve the appearance and function of your smile. Fixing cracked or damaged teeth gives you the confidence to show off that wonderful grin.

3. Improve functionality

In restoring the contour of your teeth, procedures such as dental bridges can improve your speech and the bite between your upper and lower teeth.

4. Improved oral health

Worn, decayed or otherwise broken teeth decrease functionality. Also, they are hard to clean. Just one broken tooth can negatively impact your oral health. Dental restoration restores your teeth to their natural, healthy state. As a result, you reduce the risk of oral health problems such as gum disease and cavities.

At Macleod Trail Dental, we take damaged or broken teeth very seriously. Our Calgary dentists vow to make every effort to accommodate your needs and restore your mouth to its beautiful, healthy state!
