Do you have issues with your smile? Missing or broken teeth, weak teeth, weakened or damaged fillings? Restorative dental treatments could be the answer you’ve been looking for.
Dental restoration work is carried out to help improve damaged, broken or weak teeth. It is the process of replacing a missing or damaged tooth with a synthetic tooth part. This could be in its entirety or just partially.
Previously, dental restorations consisted mainly of metal amalgam fillings. Nowadays, thanks to ever-advancing technology, there is a range of options that can provide strong, natural-looking, tooth-coloured cosmetic alternatives, which will leave your smile looking beautiful and feeling healthy. These include; fillings, crowns, implants, bridges and dentures.

Dental restoration work comes with a range of benefits. Firstly, they dramatically improve the appearance of your smile. If you have missing or broken teeth, it’s understandable that you might feel conscious about showing them off. By undergoing restorative dental treatment and transforming the look of your smile, you'll boost your self-confidence and mental health.
Restorative dental practices also help to strengthen and add to your bite. You will be able to chew much better and easier after having a missing tooth replaced, allowing you to enjoy all kinds of foods that might have been impossible beforehand.
Lastly, dental restorations can help make your speech clearer. Having one or several missing teeth can impact the way you speak, so by having these replaced properly, you will regain your usual way of speaking before any dental trauma occurred. Again, this helps to improve a person's confidence as there's no need to feel any level of self-consciousness when expressing yourself.
Thanks to the many advancements in dental work over the years, restorative dental treatment is extremely safe and comes with minimal risk to the patient.
You can expect some general discomfort and heightened sensitivity around the area of your mouth where treatment was carried out, but this should subside after a week or so.
In some rare cases, you may develop an infection or have a reaction to the metal used in the dental restoration, but this is highly unlikely. If this should happen, contact a medical or dental professional.
There are two main types of fillings you can have when it comes to dental restorations. These are composite fillings and amalgam fillings. The significant difference between the two types of fillings is colour and strength.
Although composite fillings have become more popular in recent years, the type of filling that is best for you will depend on your individual situation and preferences. Why not contact the Dee Dental team to further speak through your filling options? We’d be happy to hear from you.
As with most procedures, a basic level of aftercare is needed to ensure that your dental restorations stay healthy for a long time.
Choosing dental restoration work is by no means a small commitment. There are many factors to consider, but it could be life-changing if the treatment is right for you.
We’d be happy to talk you through all your available options and find the best treatment plan for you. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
