Restoration dentistry includes the look of your smile as well as the function of your teeth. Our treatment plans are designed to restore teeth that are decayed, chipped, cracked, discolored, or even missing. A successful outcome of dental restorations depends on patient comfort and satisfaction, and each visit should provide improvement. At Frontier Dental Care we design restorations to promote aesthetics and enhance periodontal health, as well as contingency plans in the event of trouble.
The longevity of teeth depends on the health of the bone, and restorations should be designed with this in mind. Restorations that are brought close to the bone connect and distribute forces evenly, preserving the supporting structure. Other criteria for successful dental restorations include:
- Correct Diagnoses
- Patient Comfort
- Ideal Structural Design
- Periodontal Health
Options for Dental Restorations
Fillings - The composite resin used to make this minor restoration is the same color as teeth, helping the restoration blend into the smile. Similarly, if a large cavity requires treatment, zirconia and porcelain-fused-to-zirconia crowns can make the tooth look as natural as possible.
Crowns – Replace the entire visible surface of a tooth, and effectively replenish the strength and appearance of your smile. Materials such as zirconia, lava, and e.max® are used to resemble naturally healthy teeth in both color and shape. You can expect to enjoy these restorations for many years if you care for them.
Porcelain Onlays & Inlays – When only specific areas of a tooth need repair, we recommend these resilient porcelain restorations to preserve the dental structure. Working alongside a trusted outside laboratory, we precisely adjust the contours of an onlay or inlay to match the authentic beauty of your teeth.
Bridges – This option fills gaps left by tooth loss or extensive decay, using neighboring teeth as anchors for the replacements.
Dentures and Partials – For patients missing up to an arch of teeth, complete dentures return the appearance and some of the function that comes with a full smile. Partial dentures are removable prosthetics used to replace a row of teeth.
