What do Dental Restorations Entail?
Treatment varies depending on the type of dental restoration a patient seeks. Many restorative treatments are painless and can be completed in just one dental visit. Few treatments require a series of appointments to obtain the right function and aesthetic.
Dental Implants – Dental implants typically require a series of appointments from planning to placement of the restorative crown. A dental implant is a biocompatible metal post that integrates into the jawbone to serve as new tooth roots. This serves as a base to secure a permanent prosthetic, such as a crown or denture.
Crowns and Bridges – Crowns and bridges have been used for decades to replace missing or decayed teeth. There are a variety of restorative materials Dr. Cho can use to produce your restoration, ranging from the extra-durable zirconium to highly customizable porcelain.
Inlays and Onlays – In the event that a patient chips a tooth, the area can often be repaired using an inlay or onlay. These restorations fill in or fit over the damaged area and renew its appearance and function.
Tooth-Colored Fillings – Amalgam fillings were once the go-to method for filling cavities, but with recent innovations, there are now composites strong enough to replace older amalgam fillings. The composite material is designed to resemble natural enamel, which makes cavity fillings almost undetectable.
