Change teeth size, length, and structure

Restorative dentistry is a personalized treatment plan that repairs damaged or defective teeth and replaces unattractive smiles caused by missing or worn teeth. The missing tooth has a small surface area to chew, which puts extra stress on the remaining natural teeth. Replacing the missing tooth with a dental implant, bridge, or complete or removable partial denture can promote dental health. Doing so enables you to chew correctly, not just the looks.

Worn teeth (enamel and dentin loss) may result from mechanical factors such as unbalanced bites, grinding wear (bruxism), jaw problems, lack of posterior teeth, and increased chewing power using anterior teeth. Restoring worn teeth can prevent cosmetic and oral problems such as yellowed teeth, tooth hypersensitivity, gaps between teeth, and jaw pain.

Restorative dentistry aims to keep your teeth as natural as possible by preserving the original teeth structure. The repair combines aesthetics and science of restorative dentistry to optimize the health of the entire mouth, including the teeth, the gums, and the bite, which ultimately results in a beautiful, confidence-building new smile. Restoring a tooth to proper form and function requires three steps:

  1. Diagnosing the structure and bites.
  2. Planning the processes and preparing restorative material.
  3. Preparing for the best implementation and placement.

In many cases, it is necessary to replace or restore every tooth in the mouth using a combination of cosmetic dentistry procedures. Restoring perfect teeth and bites requires every dental method for the best results. Having a natural-looking and healthy radiant smile is excellent.
