Restorative Dentistry An Overview
Restorative dentistry can play an important role in maintaining a healthy, beautiful smile for many patients. Treatments designed to repair damaged and decayed teeth, replace missing teeth and address overbite or underbite concerns enable patients to enjoy the best quality of life and feel confident in both social and professional situations.
Dr. Welinsky has advanced training in restorative dental procedures and can help you get back a comfortable smile with a personalized plan of treatment designed to meet your unique dental health needs and cosmetic goals.
During a consultation, Dr. Welinsky will thoroughly evaluate your dental health, discussing both personal concerns and expected results. Restoring your smile will not only benefit your dental health but will support overall physical health and well being. Dr. Welinsky will get to know you and your unique risk factors for dental concerns, working with you on an individual basis to exceed your expectations.
Restorative Dentistry Facts
A damaged tooth can be become a lost tooth if not treated.
Without treatment, a damaged tooth, whether cracked or chipped can expose sensitive sections of your tooth to bacteria. Tooth decay, and eventually infection, can form, leading to discomfort and a greater risk of tooth loss. Fortunately, we can use a dental restoration such as dental bonding or a dental crown, to repair the tooth.
Missing teeth can be replaced with natural looking options.
Dr. Welinsky can replace one or more lost teeth with a range of options, including dental implants. Replacing lost teeth will give you back a smile that is beautiful, functional and comfortable, allowing you to enjoy the best possible quality of life.
An infection needs attention immediately.
A dental infection forms when decay allows bacteria to reach the inner pulp, your tooth’s nerve center. Without treatment, the tooth can die and allow the infection to spread to other teeth and the soft tissues of the mouth. Dr. Welinsky will recommend appropriate treatment to address damage and infection. Root canal treatment can often save your tooth and avoid the need for an extraction.
