Restorative Dentistry in Fort Collins, CO

What is restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry is a collective term for all the dental procedures used for restoring the teeth to their ideal functionality and appearance with the help of dental restorations. It involves treating teeth that are decayed, worn down, discolored, broken or otherwise damaged. Some of the most popular restorations are  fillings, veneers, crowns, bridges and implants.

Fillings                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Filling materials are tooth-colored and are made from either ceramic or composite. They are used to fill cavities on decayed teeth and also treat cracked teeth.

Dental veneers

Dental veneers are thin, flat pieces of ceramic. They are custom-fabricated according to the shape and contour of a tooth and fit precisely on its frontal surface.

What are the uses of veneers?

  • Veneers can treat teeth that are chipped and misshapen.
  • They can be used to reduce the excessive gap between two adjacent teeth.
  • They enhance the appearance of discolored teeth.
  • They are used to provide stability to a tooth that has cracked.

Dental Crowns                                                                                                                                                                                Crowns, or commonly called dental caps, are dental restorations that cover an entire tooth. Just like veneers, they are custom-fabricated according to the shape, size, and contour of a tooth.

  

What are the uses of crowns?

  • Crowns can change the contour of teeth which are damaged due to external trauma or decay.
  • If a tooth is cracked or fractured, crowns help in holding it intact.
  • Discolored and misshapen teeth can be treated using crowns.
Dental Bridges

  Dental bridges are artificial tooth-like structures used to replace missing teeth. A dental bridge is essentially a combination of a fake tooth and crowns on either side. The crowns provide anchorage and help in holding the bridge in place.

Bonding                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Bonding is the process of applying several layers of composite resinous material on the tooth to change its shape and size. It is widely used to fill cavities and treat minor cracks on the teeth.


Dental implants                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Implants are artificial teeth used to replace missing teeth. They are fixed directly on to the jawbone, which makes them the best replacement solution for missing teeth.
