5 Benefits of a Dental Restoration

added on: June 24, 2015

Why do we need dental restorations? A restoration may refer to filling, crown, or even a cosmetic veneer. We may select one to address a myriad of problems, ranging from tooth decay to chipped teeth. Placing one allows our team to return your tooth to optimal health, beauty, and function. There are many benefits of a dental restoration.

Benefits of Dental Restorations in Waco, TX

  1. We can repair cavities: If you develop a cavity then we can repair it with a restoration. We can often use a filling to address tooth decay. However, if the decay is advanced then a filling may not be enough. If so, we can place a dental crown to return the tooth to full function, appearance, and health.
  2. We can restore damage: If you chip or fracture a tooth then we can restore the lost structure. Dental bonding uses the same material as fillings to provide a metal-free solution to broken teeth. We can also use a ceramic restoration, such as a dental crown or porcelain veneer to address damaged teeth.
  3. They look lifelike: We typically use lifelike materials to ensure they look natural and provide long lasting tooth repair. Our fillings and dental bonding are made from a metal-free resin that can be shaded to blend with the tooth. Our crowns and veneers are made form porcelain, a material designed to look like natural tooth enamel and provide strong restorations.
  4. They are metal-free: No metal means our restorations are appropriate for people of all ages and those with metal allergies.
  5. They aid in tooth replacement: If you have lost a tooth we can use a dental crown to secure a dental bridge or restore a dental implant. You can then enjoy lifelike tooth replacement. If you have any questions about tooth replacement then contact our office today.
