Using restorative dentistry to rebuild and transform the smile

If you have teeth that are broken, damaged, diseased, or lost, it is vital that you work with a dentist who provides dental reconstruction with restorative dentistry. Restorative dentistry is a specific field of dental work that focuses on addressing problems with the smile to repair function, health, and appearance. Dr. Chris Elliott of Weatherford Advanced Dentistry in Weatherford, Texas, is a dentist who can provide this assistance to both new and returning patients, ensuring they are confident in the appearance of their smiles.

  • Dental crowns. With dental crowns, patients can have a tooth that is discolored, misshapen, or otherwise damaged to be restored to its original glory. The crown will be color-matched to the patient’s existing teeth and placed over the problem tooth.
  • Dental bridges. When patients are missing one or several teeth in a row, it can cause difficulty with eating and speaking, as well as an unattractive smile. Dental bridges close the gaps in smiles caused by missing teeth. The bridge is anchored on either side by dental crowns.
  • Dental implants. Dental implants are a terrific way to replace missing teeth. An implant is placed in the natural jawbone, and a dental crown is then placed on top of the implant. Dental implants are restorations that both look and feel like natural teeth.
  • Fillings. Fillings are used to fix teeth that have experienced significant damage by decay. The decayed part of the tooth is removed, and the filling is placed in the resulting cavity. The most popular material used is composite resin bonding which matches natural tooth enamel for seamless integration.
  • Composite resin. Composite resin bonding is also a way to restore the smile and is commonly used to fill gaps and fixed chipped or cracked teeth. It is placed in a single appointment and can last many years with proper care.
