What is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry involves restoring any aspect of your dental health. This could include restoration work on your teeth, gums, jawbone, the TMJ joint in your jaw, and more. No matter your dental question or concern, we have answers and solutions for you at Luker Dental. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us to set up an appointment, and we’ll get to work on restoring that smile.

Here is a list of some quality dental options which may provide some good restorative results:

 

Gum Graft

If you suffer from gum recession, you might be a good candidate for restorative gum grafting. During this procedure, the dentist can add gum tissue to the base of the teeth to cover exposed tooth roots and promote good overall dental health and function. 

 

Jawbone Graft

This procedure might commonly be associated with other restorative procedures such as dental implants. If you don’t have enough jawbone to support the implants, a grafting procedure can add supporting jawbone to the area and make some good dental options possible. 

 

TMJ Therapy

Many people may be unfamiliar with the term TMD/TMJ Therapy. However, if you have a problem with your Temporomandibular Joint, this is a sort of therapy that you can find very beneficial and essential. The TMJ is a crucial joint in your jaw that connects your mandible to your skull, and it’s vital to the proper operation of your bite and mouth. TMJ Therapy can help restore this joint to health and functionality, eliminating pain and discomfort when eating, speaking, or just opening your mouth.

 

Dental Implants 

A dental implant is a tooth root replacement. So, if you are missing one or several teeth, dental implants might be the solution for you. It includes a titanium rod with an artificial tooth attached to it. The rod serves as the prosthetic tooth’s solid base or new root. 

 

Fillings

If you get a cavity, we can remove the affected tooth material and replace it with a durable, long-lasting hardened material such as porcelain or plastic and powdered-glass composite. This material will match your tooth color and help you keep your natural tooth in place, functioning as normal. Once it hardens within the cavity, we sculpt it to fit the tooth size and shape.

 

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a low-cost, simple cosmetic dental procedure involving a tooth-colored composite resin to polish, sculpt, and shape your teeth. This can correct tooth cracks, chips, and misshapen teeth. We can do the dental bonding work quickly and comfortably. There is usually little discomfort connected with this procedure, and no anesthesia is required. The dental bonding resin comes in varying shades and colors. This way, we can find a perfect match for your natural tooth color. 

 

Crowns

If you have a tooth that has sustained damage or suffered from tooth decay, grinding, or trauma, you might need a crown. Crowns provide an excellent way to restore dental health and strengthen a tooth. They improve biting functionality and improve the appearance of your smile in a short amount of time. We cap them over your existing tooth. You have the advantage of keeping that natural tooth in place. We sculpt the crown from a durable, long-lasting material that is smooth enough to prevent foods and liquids from sticking to it, causing it to be stain-resistant. 

 

Bridges

A bridge is a prosthetic tooth option that “bridges” the gap left behind by a missing tooth. If you’ve had a tooth extraction or already have a missing tooth or teeth, a bridge is a great way to fill that space with an option that looks, feels, and functions just like a natural tooth. A bridge uses the two teeth on either side of the gap as support. It typically includes three prosthetic teeth in a row, two on either side to crown the supporting teeth and one in the middle to fill the gap.  

 

Veneers

Veneers are porcelain shells we sculpt to fit over your tooth, correcting its color, shape, decay, or damage. We cement them in place to form a good, long-lasting fit. They will look and function so well you probably won’t be able to tell or feel the difference between the veneers and your natural teeth. They’ll look great in your smile.
