Restorative dentistry deals with tooth or teeth replacement of missing teeth or filling in gaps in between teeth. A tooth can be replaced due to deterioration, decay, or tooth fracture. At Dental Singapore, we offer the following tooth restorations.
This is a common restorative method that we do at Dental Singapore. The materials that we use for tooth fillings include resin fillings, gold, and silver amalgam. We advise our patients on the best material to use depending on their needs and budget.
A crown is a cap that has a shape similar to that of a tooth. The benefits of having crowns are to restore the appearance, size, strength, and shape of the tooth. The tooth might lose its strength and shape due to tooth decay and deterioration.
These are artificial teeth that are inserted to fill a gap in between the teeth or to replace a missing tooth. The artificial tooth is cemented permanently to allow you to have normal chewing capabilities. The artificial teeth look similar to the normal teeth and one cannot tell the difference unless you tell them. It is comfortable and will improve your smile and confidence.
Implants involves the replacement of the teeth roots with a metal post. Then after replacing the roots, the artificial tooth is joined to the metal post. In restorative dentistry, implants procedure goes in hand with crown replacement.
These are removable artificial teeth that are made of materials such as acrylic resins and a small percentage of the metallic compound. These teeth appear natural but may not function like natural teeth. Dentures are less costly than implants.
