Restorative Dentistry in San Antonio

Heart hands around teethTooth enamel is the hardest substance in the body – even harder than bone. One might think that should make it almost indestructible, but if it were, there wouldn’t be any need for dentists.

While proper brushing, flossing, and periodic cleanings and exams in the office contribute to a healthy smile, sometimes, even with the best dental care, a person can experience tooth decay, cracked and chipped teeth, or even missing teeth that affect the way they look and feel about themselves. That’s where restorative dentistry comes in.

What Is It?

Restorative dentistry provides a solution for those missing, decayed, and damaged teeth and prevents them from becoming worse or affecting adjacent teeth.  Common restorative treatments include:

  • Veneers, are very thin restorations that are placed on the fronts of teeth to cover and correct gaps, stains, or chips.
  • A dental implant is used to replace a missing tooth.
  • Inlays and Onlays that correct teeth that are too damaged for a filling and not damaged enough to require a crown.
  • Crowns or “caps” that fit over existing teeth to replace missing or damaged tooth structures.
  • A dental bridge is made up of two crowns on either side of the missing tooth connected to an artificial tooth.
  • Partial dentures that replace several missing teeth and full dentures that replace all your teeth provide removable replacements that look natural.
  • Root Canal Therapy removes infected tissue from the roots of a tooth.
