Is Restorative Dentistry Cosmetic Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is not really cosmetic dentistry as such, but it can be done for the purposes of improving how your smile looks. For example, dental implants are used to create a strong base for replacement teeth, which improves the health of the mouth and the look of the smile. A white filling might be used instead of a silver filling purely for cosmetic reasons even though it isn’t necessarily the most practical option for everyone.
What Are The Different Restorative Dentistry Options?
The type of treatment suitable for you depends on your individual circumstances, however it is good to know about all the different types of restorative dentistry available for different reasons.
Here is an overview of the most popular types of restorative dentistry available at your local dentist:
Ceramic Crowns – You could need ceramic crowns in Acton for various reasons as they have so many practical applications. Ceramic crowns can be made of resin, ceramic or gold and they are essentially something that replaces the top of the tooth.
Dental Implants – Dental implants replace the tooth root and provide a permanent solution to tooth loss. The replacement tooth attaches to the top of the implant at the gum line so you can’t see the implant or tell the tooth isn’t real.
Teeth Straightening – Actually more appropriately known as orthodontics, but working to restore teeth back to their original or correct position. Teeth straightening treatments include braces and invisible brace options.
