What Is Tooth Restoration?

Tooth restoration is used to repair and restore teeth that have been damaged by decay, injury or other factors. It can correct esthetic defects, replace missing teeth and help to improve chewing function and prevent dental diseases.


Patients are encouraged to visit the dentist regularly and follow oral hygiene habits. This will ensure that any problems are detected early and treated promptly before they become more serious.

Dental Veneers

Veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that can be placed on the front and edges of teeth to improve their appearance. They are an excellent option for fixing a number of cosmetic dental problems including lengthening short teeth, correcting discoloration and improving the appearance of chipped or broken teeth. Veneers can typically be fabricated and applied in two visits to the dentist.

The first visit will consist of a consultation where your cosmetic goals are discussed and treatment options are reviewed. You may also want to consider less invasive alternatives like lumineers or composite bonding if the goal is to reshape your smile with minimal removal of tooth structure. 韓国ホワイトニング

During the second appointment, your teeth will be cleaned to remove plaque and tartar, as well as to prepare them for the placement of the veneers. The dentist will then use a grinding tool to create a rougher texture on each tooth surface that is to receive a veneer, so the cement can adhere properly. Once this step is complete, the dentist will apply the bonding agent to each tooth and then cure it with a special ultraviolet light.

Once the bonding agent has cured, any excess cement will be removed and the teeth will be polished. Your dentist will provide you with care instructions that should be followed to help extend the life of your new restorations. These include brushing twice per day for two minutes, flossing daily and wearing a mouth guard if you clench or grind your teeth (bruxism).

Dental Crow 韓国ホワイトニング ns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed atop damaged teeth, helping to restore their shape, size, strength, and appearance. These caps can be made out of a variety of materials, including metals, porcelain, ceramics, and resin. When properly cared for, these crowns can last a lifetime.

A crown may be recommended as a treatment for cracked or fractured teeth, to help hold a dental bridge in place, or even to cover discolored or misshaped teeth. Like veneers, a crown is non-invasive, and it offers durable protection that helps to keep the underlying tooth healthy.

Before the process of getting a dental crown begins, the dentist will anesthetize (numb) the area to be treated. Next, the affected tooth will be shaped along its chewing surface and sides to make room for the crown. A mold is then taken of the tooth, which will be sent off to a lab so that your permanent crown can be created. A temporary crown will be put in place while you wait for your crown to be completed.

We use BruxZir solid zirconia crowns, which are created with the highest quality Japanese zirconia. This type of ceramic crown has improved light transmission for a more natural shade and realistic appearance compared to traditional porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns or full-cast restorations. BruxZir is also extremely strong and durable, which means that your crown will stand the test of time with proper care.

Dental Implants

Implants replace both the tooth root and the crown, providing a permanent solution that looks and functions like natural teeth. They also stimulate bone growth to prevent jaw deterioration and support facial features. When cared for properly, dental implants can last a lifetime.

During the initial consultation, we perform a detailed assessment of your mouth and health to determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants. We take X-rays and create a model of your teeth to check that you have enough bone to place an implant. We may also recommend a CBCT scan, which shows the precise structure of your oral tissues and jaw bones, so we can plan the placement procedure more accurately.

An implant consists of a titanium post placed in the jaw bone where your original tooth root used to be. After up to six months of healing and osseointegration (fusing to the bone), we uncover the implant and attach a connector post known as an abutment, onto which your new replacement tooth will be attached.

It is important that you follow a rigorous dental hygiene regimen after your implant treatment to keep the area clean and free from infection, which can be very serious if not managed well. It is also advisable to seek prompt attention if you experience any pain, as this could be a sign of an infection.

Dental Bridges

If a patient has missing teeth, dental bridges can be used to restore their appearance and function. They can also help prevent surrounding teeth from shifting into the vacated space and they can distribute the forces of chewing across all teeth rather than just those on either side of the gap.

Bridges are usually made of porcelain, which helps them look more natural in the mouth. They are anchored to healthy teeth on each side using crowns. A local anesthetic may be used during this procedure to make it as comfortable as possible. The dentist takes X-rays and makes impressions of the teeth before making the crowns and artificial tooth that will form the bridge. These are then fabricated at an off-site lab.

Bridges are often a good option for patients who have no other alternative for replacing missing teeth. However, it is important to remember that bridges can wear down and they may require repair or replacement over time. Flossing under these bridges can be difficult, so a hygienist should be seen regularly to ensure that the bridge is clean and free of decay. It is also worth noting that traditional bridges can damage the abutment teeth (the healthy adjacent teeth they anchor to). In contrast, implant-supported bridges do not impact surrounding teeth but they do require surgical placement of dental implants.
