What Is Restorative Dentistry?
Our dentists specialize in restorative dentistry, which focuses on repairing and replacing damaged and missing teeth. This can include broken, chipped, cracked, and decayed teeth that can put the overall health of your smile in jeopardy. Our treatments allow our Atlanta, GA team to improve the look and function of your smile to eliminate any of your discomforts.
Our Restorative Treatments
Dentists everywhere like Drs. Goldstein and Wait consider dental implants to be the gold standard of restorative dentistry since they offer a permanent solution to replacing missing teeth. Unlike other dental treatments, dental implants mimic your tooth from root to crown since they’re attached directly to your jawbone. Whether it’s one or multiple teeth, your dentist can use these fixtures to strengthen your smile and restore its functionality. We even offer All-On-4 dental implants that combine the strength of these restorations with dentures.
A damaged or decayed tooth can put your smile at risk of dental issues down the road. Most importantly, it just doesn’t look good. Fortunately, our Atlanta, GA dentists provide dental crowns as an easy solution to fixing the damage caused by certain dental conditions. These fixtures are custom-made to match the color and shape of your natural teeth, giving you a complete smile that looks like the real thing. In fact, most of our patients don’t even realize they have this restoration in their smile while continuing with their day-to-day life.
If you have one or more adjacent missing teeth, dental bridges can fill the gap by using an artificial tooth. A bridge uses dental crowns on either side of the gap to support a pontic (false tooth) and cement it in place. This can complete your smile without needing to undergo multiple dental procedures. To get a dental bridge, you need to have healthy teeth on either side of your missing ones to ensure it last. That way, our team can prevent other dental problems which threaten your smile such as misalignment and other teeth shifting out of place.
If you’re missing most or all of your natural teeth, a partial or complete set of dentures can restore your smile’s look and functionality. These fixtures can replace entire arches of missing teeth, allowing you to speak and smile with full confidence. Our dentists provide a variety of denture options such as full and partial dentures based on your oral health. During your initial consultation, your dentist will examine your smile to determine which restoration will work best for you. Schedule a visit today by calling our office.
