After Restorative Dentistry

At Schuyler Family Dental our restorative dentistry encompasses a wide variety of clinical treatments that restore broken down diseased teeth back to their proper form, function and esthetic qualities, replace missing teeth and restore proper occlusion (bite). Restorative dentistry can range from restoring a single tooth to full mouth reconstruction and rehabilitation involving most or all of the patient´s teeth, opening the patient’s bite and reestablishing the patient´s entire chewing motion to proper function.

Restorative dentistry can achieve this through simple tooth re-contouring or small direct restorations (fillings), in less severe cases. In more advanced cases, restorative dentistry may involve indirect restorations that are fabricated in a dental laboratory. These restorations include inlays, on-lays, crowns, fixed bridges, implant crowns, implant bridges and porcelain laminate veneers. Since a laboratory fabricates these restorations, they require multiple visits before they are completed, as well as temporization between visits. These restorations are cemented or bonded into place and the final bite adjustments are done directly in the patient’s mouth to ensure the maximum comfort possible. Restorative dentistry may also utilize full dentures and removable partial dentures to replace missing teeth and restore proper form, function, esthetics and bite.

In the most severely debilitated cases, restorative dentistry employs a multifaceted interdisciplinary approach to accomplish full mouth reconstruction and rehabilitation. The restorative dentistry needed for these patients is complex and extensive in scope, time and cost, but can achieve miraculous life changing outcomes.

Final restorations are first represented in wax models that are used as a blue print or guide the doctor and laboratory to the final restorative product. Provisional (temporary) restorations are a must in these cases and often times several sets of provisional restorations will be needed especially when opening a patient´s bite. This ensures the patient is able to accommodate to the new bite relationship before the final restorations are placed.

CROWNS

If you want a smile that's your crowning glory, you may need a crown to cover a tooth and restore it to its normal shape and size. A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance.

It can cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't enough tooth left. It can be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that's already broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped. It's also used to cover a dental implant.

If Dr. Schuyler recommends a crown, it's probably to correct one of these conditions. Your dentist's primary concern, like yours, is helping you keep your teeth healthy and your smile bright -- literally, your crowning glory.

Reasons to consider a crown:

  • Broken or fractured teeth

  • Cosmetic enhancement

  • Decayed teeth

  • Fractured fillings

  • Large fillings

  • Tooth has a root canal

BRIDGES

A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth.

There are several types of bridges. You and your dentist will discuss the best options for your particular case. The “traditional bridge” is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal. This type of bridge consists to two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached to pontics (artificial teeth), filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth.

Dental bridges are highly durable and will last many years, however they may need replacement or need to be re-cemented due to normal wear.

Reasons for a bridge:

  • Fill space of missing teeth.

  • Maintain facial shape.

  • Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.

  • Restore chewing and speaking ability.

  • Restore your smile.

  • Upgrade from a removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.
