Reconstructive dentistry is what most people think of as fillings, crowns and bridgework.
Today’s technology has improved reconstructive dentistry and offers treatment options that provide longer lasting solutions. Our grandparents’ generation did not have the option to replace missing or decayed teeth with prosthetics that are as strong and as lifelike as natural teeth.
Reconstructive dentistry utilizes all the disciplines of dentistry to treat and restore a tooth's function, shape, form and aesthetics. Periodontics (gum dentistry), orthodontics (tooth alignment), oral surgery, endodontics (root canal therapy) and prosthedontics (restorative dentistry) are the most common disciplines that restore and rebuild patients’ jaws, teeth, facial harmony and restore the symmetry that makes for a beautiful smile.
Some common reconstructive dental procedures include:
Stronger and more reliable crown and bridgework; Innovative new materials allow for a variety of crown and bridgework which lasts longer and is more aesthetically pleasing.
Cosmetically appealing and functionally strong porcelain inlays and onlays; Fillings no longer need to be dark and unappealing. Inlay/onlay restorations are custom matched to your tooth color, making them virtually undetectable.
Dental Implants are a long-term option for tooth replacement; Replacement of one missing tooth, several teeth or an entire arch of teeth has become possible through tested technology, which has proven that with proper maintenance and care, dental implants can last well beyond twenty years.
