Types of dental restorations

The following is a list of five of the more popular types of dental restorations used nowadays to restore someone’s oral health.

#1 – Dental crowns

When a tooth is in jeopardy, a dental crown is often used to restore its strength. Some of the more common reasons for why a tooth would be in jeopardy include deep chips and cracks. A crown is often called an artificial tooth because it covers a natural tooth in order to restore its strength and looks very similar to a natural tooth. The three main types of dental crowns are porcelain and metal, all porcelain and all gold.

#2 – Dental bridges

Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth. They are permanently held in place when they are attached to the teeth next to the empty places in the mouth where teeth used to be.

#3 – Dental fillings

Dental fillings are used to restore the integrity of a tooth that has somehow been damaged, e.g., by decay or trauma. Today’s options allow for tooth-colored fillings, and many people are choosing this option for cosmetic reasons.

#4 – Dental implants

Dental implants are a popular restoration option for those who are missing one or more of their teeth. Implants are surgically inserted into the jawbone, making it so that they act just like natural teeth.

#5 – Dentures

Dentures are a tooth replacement option that allows those who are missing multiple teeth or all of their teeth to once again be able to perform their everyday functions without issue, like talking and eating.
