Custom-Made Dental Restorations
As the most-used parts of your body, your teeth have to be super strong and resilient to retain their health and integrity throughout life. In fact, the enamel that covers them is the most resilient substance the human body produces. However, your teeth are only strong when they’re healthy and free of disease, and even at their strongest, they aren’t indestructible in the face of excessive force. Custom dental restorations are designed to help your teeth regain their strength and integrity after being worn down, damaged, or infected with decay. With the right restoration, we can make your tooth like new again and improve your chances of preserving it for life.
The Goals of Restoring a Tooth
Despite being the strongest and most-used parts of your body, your teeth have one glaring weakness – they can’t repair or rebuild themselves when their structures are compromised. That means if a tooth becomes chipped or cracked, the damage will not heal, but only grow worse over time. The goal of a custom restoration is to prevent the damage from growing worse while restoring your tooth’s ability to withstand the full pressure of your bite. With our advanced, highly lifelike materials, such as composite resin and dental porcelain, we can craft a custom restoration that also helps you preserve or improve your smile’s overall appearance.
Your Choice of Custom Restorations
Every tooth restoration is different because every treatment is tailored to meet your specific needs and preferences. However, restorations typically fall into one of a few categories. For example, tooth fillings consist of resin or porcelain that is used to fill a cavity caused by tooth decay. Porcelain might also be used to create a full or partial dental crown that can be placed completely over a tooth, or over just a portion of it. A full or partial dental crown helps reinforce your tooth structure while also blending in with the healthy, natural tooth structure surrounding it, giving your restoration a healthy and natural appearance.
