Restorative dentistry uses oral prosthetics to repair or replace damaged, decaying, or missing teeth.
Treatment at Whole Body Dental can reduce your risk of complications and encourage optimal oral health.
At Whole Body Dental, the team offers various types of restorative dentistry, including:
The team at Whole Body Dental practices holistic, non-metal dentistry. Since metal fillings present potentially serious risks, they regularly perform the SMART removal technique.
During SMART, your provider uses special tools to completely remove your metal filling. They then replace it with a tooth-colored filling made of composite resin.
The team might recommend a white filling if you have a cavity. First, your Whole Body Dental provider removes the decaying part of your tooth enamel. Then, they fill the hole with a composite resin that blends in with your tooth.
If you have a broken or chipped tooth, the team recommends inlays or onlays. Inlays and onlays are custom restorations that your dentist bonds over a decaying or damaged tooth. Inlays are bonded to the top of a tooth, while onlays cover the top and sides of a tooth.
Zirconia is a durable type of ceramic, and a zirconia crown is a tooth-shaped cap that your dentist bonds on top of a severely decaying or damaged tooth. The crown restores your tooth’s size and appearance, transforming your smile.
The team might recommend a dental bridge if you’ve lost a single tooth because of trauma or extractions. A bridge fills the gap in your smile where the permanent tooth used to be.
Dental implants are small posts that your Whole Body Dental provider inserts into the empty sockets where your teeth used to be. The implants integrate with your jaw after placement, providing a foundation for crowns or implant-anchored dentures.
Consider All-On-4 implants if you’ve lost most or all of your permanent teeth. All-On-4 implants are unique in that they support a full arch of false teeth (dentures) with just four dental implants.
Anyone with damaged, decaying, or missing teeth is a candidate for restorative dentistry at Whole Body Dental.
