Restorative dentistry deals with repairing the functional structures of the mouth; functions that are responsible for chewing, speaking and maintaining a relaxed and aligned bite.
Restorative dentistry addresses problems including:
- Broken, chipped or cracked teeth
- Missing teeth
- Infected teeth and/or gums
- Damaged teeth and/or gums
- Deteriorating or damaged tissue
At Lakeside Dental Care, our highly trained team of dental professionals provides a wide range of restorative services and will develop a treatment plan to rehabilitate your teeth and gums to a functional and aesthetically pleasing state
If tooth structure has been irreversibly damaged or lost due to decay or fracture, your dentist will recommend a filling.
Composite fillings also called bonding — are white fillings designed to match the color of your teeth and bonded into place. Composite fillings are more natural looking than traditional silver fillings.
Amalgam fillings also called traditional silver fillings — offer the same benefits but are generally used only on back teeth where they will not be seen. Traditional materials have strength and durability, which is important on back teeth where chewing forces are greatest.
