Our Newtown dentist office Discusses Restoration Types

Posted on: March 1, 2017

Restorationrestorations. Here is what you need to know about them so that you have a better understanding of the possible procedures.

Dental Bonding

We can place the bonding material on your damaged and prepared teeth. Our Newtown dentist office will shape the bonding material with the necessary precision to ensure that the restoration looks natural once complete.   Once the bonding material hardens, you will have a completely restored tooth. This process only takes one visit and usually only a few hours. Dental bonding is not invasive and is incredibly popular for anyone who needs an immediate restoration or for children. However, the dental bonding material is not as durable or long-lasting as a dental crown. If we believe that you may eventually need a dental crown, then we will recommend this first. However, if the damage is minor or time is the biggest concern, dental bonding  will work just fine until you need to replace it in the future.

Dental Veneers

We use dental veneers when the damage is less severe or the damage is to one of your front teeth. If you crack a front tooth, a dental veneer may be a better restoration than a dental crown. We will bond a dental veneer to the surface of the tooth, leaving more of the initial tooth structure intact. Also, dental veneers  are extremely popular for anyone who wants a smile makeover. We can use them to close gaps between teeth, make teeth appear symmetrical, cover dark stains and more.

Dental Crowns

When a tooth is severely damaged or is missing much of the enamel, we will place dental crowns. Dental crowns are the most sturdy and durable of dental restorations. A crown is a cap that surrounds the entire visible portion of your tooth. First, the dental crown restores the tooth that may have been cracked or chipped, essentially holding it together. Next, the dental crown protects the tooth so that nothing can touch it. Our dental crowns are tooth-colored to blend in with your surrounding teeth for an improvement to their functionality and appearance.
