Try our restorative treatment to repair teeth

Repairing or replacing damaged or missing teeth are considered restorative services by the staff at Dentist of Lake Mary. The goal of a restorative procedure is to prevent future oral health issues and restore a patient’s natural smile.

Crowns, bridges, fillings, implants, and dentures all fall under the umbrella of restorative services.

The most common way to treat a cavity is with a filling. The decay is removed by drilling into the tooth and the filling is then packed into the “cavity” that is left behind after the decay is removed. Crowns are essentially a cap that is placed over a tooth to strengthen and protect the tooth’s structure..

Implants and bridges are used to replace missing teeth. A bridge has a crown on each end that will serve as abutments for the artificial tooth or teeth that are filling the space. Implants replace a missing tooth or teeth when a metal anchor is inserted into the jawbone and a false tooth is inserted into the anchor.

Bridges and implants are used to replace missing teeth. A bridge has a crown on each end that serves as abutments for the artificial tooth or teeth that are filling the space created by the missing teeth. Dental implants replace a missing tooth or teeth when a metal anchor is inserted into the jawbone and a false tooth or teeth is inserted onto the anchor.

When empty spaces in a patient’s mouth are filled, patients feel better about their appearance and self-esteem. Filling the empty spaces keeps teeth properly aligned, and makes it easier for the patient to maintain good oral health care.
