Do you wish you knew more about dental care? If so, you have come to the right blog! Our dentist, Dr. Michael Tobola, is happy to teach you all about some of the common restorative dental treatments that are used in dental clinics all around the country. The more you know about these treatments, the better off you’ll be. Who knows, it can even help you know more about your smile! Some common restorative dental treatments include:
-Dental fillings: Dental fillings are used to repair decayed and damaged teeth. There are two most commonly used dental fillings, which are amalgam and composite resin dental fillings. Amalgam is silver and is made of metal while composite is white to match your teeth and is made of a dental resin material.
-Dental crowns: Dental crowns are tooth caps that protect weak, worn-down, broken, and severely decayed teeth. They are made for your specific smile and they cover the visible portion of the tooth to the gumline.
-Dental bridges: Dental bridges replace one or more missing teeth in your mouth. They are made of dental crowns and false teeth. The dental crowns anchor the bridge in place by clinging to the natural teeth on both sides of the gap. The false teeth lie between the crowns and replace the missing teeth.
