Restorative dentistry is the treatment and rehabilitation of function and aesthetics of your teeth. It restores the function, health and integrity of your teeth. The structural damage or loss typically results from caries or external trauma.
People lose teeth for a variety of reasons, including periodontal disease, decay, excessive tooth wear, physical trauma or even an eating disorder. Whatever the cause, losing a tooth can be very distressing. Missing teeth can affect the way you look, eat and talk. It can cause loss of self-confidence, as well. Gaps due to missing teeth can cause adjacent teeth to shift, destabilizing your bite. With modern dental procedures such as dental implants, dentures, veneers and bridges, there’s no excuse to go through life with missing teeth.
