Restorative Dentistry in Pune
At some point in your life, you will likely need some kind of restorative dentistry care. Fillings, crowns, implants, bridges... these are all common tooth restoration options or procedures used to increase the strength and function of your existing teeth when damage has occurred or to replace the lost ones. The earlier we can intervene in the case of a cavity, infection or dental injury, the more likely we are to achieve good results with proper dental restorations and save your teeth and its functionality.
Ways Restorative Dentistry can save your teeth:
If you've got a cavity, we can treat it with a dental filling. Left unabated, a cavity can eventually lead to serious infection and, even worse, the loss of a tooth. We use composite tooth-coloured material to create cosmetic dental fillings when desired and possible. Porcelain crowns, inlays and onlays provide extra strength and protection for teeth that have more extensive damage or are broken. With a Tooth Restoration a dentist can save your smile by replacing a missing tooth or repairing the missing part of your pearly white.
Several options for replacing teeth:
We try to save all the teeth we can with the help of Restorative Dentistry, but sometimes due to extensive disease they need to be extracted. Once a tooth is extracted, you have four options. First is to do nothing about it. With this option, you would be risking further future problems. Your teeth are meant to work together as a team. When one or more of your natural teeth are lost, problems start arising. These problems include shifting of the remaining teeth, tipping of the adjacent and the counter teeth leading to malocclusion (crooked bite), gum disease, bone loss, etc. Because of the eventual shifting of the rest of the teeth, they become prone to food lodgement and eventually decay. Because of the bad bite created by the undesired movement of the teeth, you may suffer from jaw joint problems and frequent headaches. A single tooth loss may result in a chain reaction of discomfort for the rest of your life if not treated properly at the right time. To prevent such problems and to restore your smile, bite and function to normal health, tooth replacement becomes mandatory. The best way to replace your missing tooth is to get a dental implant. The third and fourth options are to do a dental bridge or a removable denture respectively. To help you understand the differences, benefits, and downsides of each, read on in the related links to find more information and some sample photos, or contact us for a consultation to help you determine which option is right for you.
Dental implants, a revolution in dentistry, are the perfect solution to replace missing teeth or stabilise loose dentures. They are the new standard of care for people with missing or broken down teeth. You no longer have to rely on dentures, bridges or other removable appliances.
A teeth supported dental bridge is a permanent fixed restoration used to replace missing teeth when dental implants are not an option for your treatment. As you would have read in the dental implants section, a bridge is any tooth shaped restoration used to replace missing teeth that is connected by two or more supporting units.
At Smilekraft Dentistry, tooth coloured dental fillings are done to restore teeth that have been damaged by tooth decay or injury. The cleaning and shaping of teeth prior to the filling is done with the combination of the Waterlase laser and the Lares fibre-optic dental drill.
Restoring teeth with dental crowns or caps is our way of improving the appearance and strength of damaged, decayed, fractured, or weakened teeth. They are basically tooth shaped restorative caps which are fitted on a portion of a tooth that is seen above the gums in a way that it becomes the external surface of the tooth giving it the required protection, strength and beauty.
