Restorative dentistry encompasses many different things. For some, it might be as simple as a filling in a tooth. Restoring in dentistry can mean replacing teeth. There are many options for restoring teeth and the advantage of restoring teeth is that you have full function. You have a beautiful smile. It supports the face. It can make you look younger and give you more confidence.
Your smile is one of the most powerful influences on your confidence and self-assurance. When your smile looks good, you feel attractive in general. On the other hand, if you have a problem with your smile, it will affect the way you interact with people at work, home, or at leisure. If your smile suffers from damaged or missing teeth, it’s time to regain your confidence. Dr. Betts can help restore your smile and have it bright and healthy again in no time.
Restorative dentistry is the practice of restoring your mouth to an attractive, comfortable condition. The goal is to preserve your real teeth or to replace missing teeth as needed to restore your appearance and the function of your mouth. Dr. Betts in Decatur, AL can use a variety of different techniques to achieve this. Whatever restorative dentistry treatment will work best for you is what he will recommend.
Your options for restorative dentistry from Dr. Betts include the following:
Tooth colored fillings are one of the advantages of modern dentistry. Years ago when you went to the dentist, you got silver fillings. Now you get tooth-colored fillings that are made to match your teeth. They seal the teeth. There's less sensitivity. They give you a prettier smile when you open your mouth. You don't have a mouth full of silver. You just have a mouth full of teeth.
A tooth filling is necessary when trying to remedy any kind of mild or moderate decay or infection that may have eaten away at the structure of your tooth. Once the decay and/or infection is removed, a filling will be placed to prevent further damage that may be costly and painful.
The advantage of root canal treatment is that we're able to save teeth that otherwise could not be saved and also get you out of pain. With digital X-Rays, the procedure can go a whole lot faster, so you're in the chair less time and your jaw's not as tired as it was before.
At our Decatur, AL dentist office, a root canal does not hurt any more than any other restorative dentistry procedure. Dr. Betts knows that not everyone has the same tolerance for pain, so he will be sure to adjust the level of numbing agent to reduce pain and make sure that you stay comfortable.
