Restorative Dentistry Q&A
What is restorative dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is any dental procedure used to restore the appearance or function of your teeth. Dr. Karabell can use restorative treatments to replace missing teeth, improve damaged teeth, or enhance the appearance of aesthetically displeasing teeth.
What are the benefits of restorative dentistry?
Damaged or missing teeth can affect the proper functioning of your mouth, making it more difficult to eat and speak, as well as putting you at risk of oral health concerns like shifting teeth and jawbone loss. Restorative dentistry can rehabilitate your mouth and return it to normal functioning.
What restorative treatments do you offer?
Karabell Dentistry is proud to offer a variety of restorative treatments, including:
White composite fillings
Fillings are a classic solution for treating cavities. Dr. Karabell removes the decayed portion of your tooth and fills it with a special material that hardens to keep bacteria out. Karabell Dentistry offers white composite fillings, which are shade-matched to your natural teeth.
Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells bonded to the front of your teeth, where they cover up a wide range of cosmetic concerns like stains, fractures, or worn-down teeth. They’re shade-matched to the rest of your smile for a natural appearance.
Crowns are coverings that surround the portion of your tooth above the gumline. Dr. Karabell can use a crown to restore the strength and structure of a tooth.
If you’re missing a tooth, a fixed bridge provides an easy solution. It’s an artificial tooth held in place by crowns attached to your adjacent teeth. By bridging the gap, a bridge improves your bite and prevents your remaining teeth from shifting.
Dentures replace multiple missing teeth or an entire dental arch. Karabell Dentistry offers a few types of dentures, including partial dentures, full dentures, and implant-supported dentures.
Dental implants are one of the most versatile and modern options for replacing a missing tooth or teeth. They’re synthetic tooth roots bonded to your bone tissue. Dr. Karabell uses them as a foundation to attach a crown, bridge, or dentures, replacing your missing teeth with a solution that’s structurally identical to a natural tooth.
