The more you know about dental care, the better. That way you can know more about your smile and even prepare for your appointments. So, our dentist, Dr. Samuel D. Knight, will be happy to teach you a thing or two about commonly used restorative dental treatments in the world today. Those are:
-Dental fillings: Dental fillings are strong restorations that can repair decayed and damaged teeth. They can help every tooth in the smile as long as the damage is minor. Typically, two different dental fillings can be used to treat your tooth. The first filling is an amalgam filling, which is made of different metals and is silver. The second filling is a composite filling, which is made of dental resin and it matches the color of your teeth.
-Dental crowns: Dental crowns are little caps that are placed over your teeth. They replace the enamel up to the gumline. They restore function, health, and beauty to the tooth and provide natural-looking results. They are also custom made for your smile.
-Dental bridges: Dental bridges are minimally invasive and they can replace your missing teeth. They are made of two dental crowns and false teeth. The crowns will hold the bridge in place by anchoring to the neighboring teeth in the gap. The false teeth will lie between the crowns and fill the space in your smile.
