What Is Restorative Dentistry?

As dentists, preventative dentistry is one of the most important elements of what we do. Cleanings, exams, fluoride treatments, and similar dental services can protect your teeth and gums for decades. But what do you do when teeth get damaged? Sometimes patients come in after not seeing a dentist for a few years and noticing symptoms of decay like toothaches. In other cases, a sports injury leads to a knocked out or chipped tooth. And of course, as we age our teeth can weaken, loosen, and fall out in general. There are many different solutions for dental issues like these. The umbrella term for replacing teeth, or adding implements like fillings/crowns to existing teeth is known as restorative dentistry. Here at Whiting Dental Arts we provide the best in restorative dentistry by providing different options for tooth loss and tooth repair, as well as providing unique dental services like CEREC dental crowns. 

Same-Day CEREC Dental Crowns:

At Whiting Dental Arts we provide various special services you might not find at every dental office. This includes CEREC dental crowns. At a traditional dental appointment where a crown is needed (i.e. for a root canal or dental bridge), you might need two separate appointments in order to get your crown made and installed. One appointment would be necessary to get the measurements for the crown, the crown would then be constructed, and you would return to have the crown installed. But with CEREC, Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, you can have a crown designed and created in a single appointment. 

Replacing An Adult Tooth in Greater Boston

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a surgically attached tooth that is connected to your jaw the same way your natural teeth are. Dental implants are chosen as they mimic the form and function of a real tooth. Dental implants can last years longer than a dental bridge. They can also replace teeth that are not adjacent to one another. Dental implants aren’t offered by every dentist since they are a surgical procedure. 

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge places a false tooth or row of teeth between your existing teeth. The abutment teeth are used as anchors and the connection is usually made through the installation of a dental crown. Dental bridges are often chosen by patients as a cost-effective tooth replacement option for a single teeth or a row of adjacent teeth. Compared to implants, bridges tend to not last as long. 

Dentures vs All-On-4 Dental Implants

As we age, we have to consider replacing more than just a singular tooth or a row of teeth. Traditionally when we think about replacing the majority of our teeth we might immediately think about removable dentures. But dentistry has come a long way since those days. One great option for tooth replacement is All-On-4 dental implants. These implants replace all of your top or bottom teeth and attach to just four implant posts.
