Restorative Dentistry Q & A
What is restorative dentistry?
Restorative dentistry focuses on restoring a damaged smile. Restorative dentistry can address issues like:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Broken teeth
- Structural damage from tooth decay
- Infected teeth
To restore your smile, Dr. Morell replaces your missing teeth and/or fixes damaged teeth.
What restorative dentistry procedures are available to me?
At Morell Dental Care, Dr. Morell offers several restorative dentistry procedures, including:
Dental implant restoration uses titanium posts fused into the jawbone to hold several dental prostheses, like bridges, crowns, and some types of dentures. Dental implant restoration is a popular choice that provides you with durable, aesthetically pleasing artificial teeth.
Dental bridges “bridge” the gaps between missing teeth.
Dental crowns are caps that cover vulnerable, broken, or decayed teeth. They can also attach to dental implants or cover a tooth after a root canal.
Dentures are removable artificial teeth (prosthetics) that replace some or all of your teeth.
Dental fillings restore teeth damaged by tooth decay.
Morell Dental Care also offers root canal therapy for decaying or infected teeth that will otherwise die. Typically after a root canal, Dr. Morell places a crown to further protect your tooth.
What is the difference between direct and indirect restorative dentistry?
All restorative dentistry procedures fall under two major categories: direct and indirect restorative dentistry.
The term “direct restorative dentistry” refers to the process of directly and immediately restoring a tooth. A tooth filling, for example, is a type of direct restorative dentistry. Typically, Dr. Morell can complete direct restorative dentistry procedures in just one visit.
In contrast, “indirect tooth restoration” refers to the process of creating customized tooth replacements, like crowns. The indirect portion of the process is when Dr. Morell decides on details like the shade of your artificial teeth and the time during which the lab is making your artificial teeth.
Indirect tooth restoration usually takes several visits to complete.
