Restorative Dentistry Q & A

What is restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry uses custom oral prosthetics, like crowns, bridges, or dental implants to repair damaged, decaying, or missing teeth. By correcting issues like trauma and decay, it’s possible to preserve your oral health and reduce the risk of other more serious conditions.

At Baytown Gentle Dental, the team boasts years of experience performing restorative dental procedures. They regularly partner with professional dental labs in the area to design and manufacture custom restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth. 

What services does restorative dentistry provide?

At Baytown Gentle Dental, the team offers a wide range of restorative dental services, including:

Aesthetic crowns

An aesthetic crown is a cap that covers a damaged or decaying tooth. Once bonded in place, it restores your tooth to its near-original size, strength, and appearance. Aesthetic crowns are made from porcelain or composite resin. These materials look very similar to your tooth enamel, ensuring the restoration blends in with your smile.

Dental bridges

A dental bridge fills a gap in your smile caused by a missing tooth or teeth. By closing the space in your smile with an artificial tooth, it’s possible to reduce the risk of other issues like gum recession or shifting teeth.

Dental implants

Dental implants are small, titanium posts that look like screws. Your Baytown Gentle Dental provider places them in your jaw during an outpatient procedure, and they fuse with your natural bone. Ultimately, implants provide a foundation for a custom dental restoration.

All-on-4®

If you’ve lost all of your permanent teeth, the team might recommend All-on-4 implants. All-on-4 implants can replace an entire row of teeth with just four posts. What’s more, these implants are pre-loaded, meaning you can bite and chew with them immediately after placement.

Dentures

If you aren’t interested in dental implants, or you don’t have enough jawbone density to support them, the team might recommend dentures. Dentures are removable oral prosthetics that replace missing teeth. The team at Baytown Gentle Dental offers partial dentures and complete dentures.

What should I bring to a restorative dentistry appointment?

To get the most from your restorative dentistry appointment, the team at Baytown Gentle Dental recommends bringing the following documents:

  • Your dental insurance card
  • A list of the medications and supplements you regularly take
  • Information about any underlying medical conditions 
  • Results from any recent or relevant tests, like oral X-rays

After conducting an oral exam and discussing your goals, the team can develop a custom care plan that aligns with your needs.
