When damage or decay impacts teeth, dental restoration services repair and upgrade teeth so they look better, feel better, and work properly.
From minor to major restorations, Rochford Family Dental has the service you need to bring your teeth back to their original appearance and function.
Fillings are the most common dental restoration, as they repair everything from minor chips and cracks to cavities caused by tooth decay. The dentist drills the tooth to remove all the decayed material, and then fills it with metal or composite resin. Quick, effective, and versatile, most people have had experience with fillings, and the modern form of the procedure is more straightforward and painless than ever!
Made of porcelain, ceramic, or porcelain/metal, a crown fits over a damaged tooth in order to strengthen and protect it. Normally recommended after a root canal or extensive damage, a crown fits over the tooth, covering it entirely.
Similar to a crown, the inlay is used in similar situations but differs in that it’s molded to fit precisely within the tooth, around all its individual curves, nooks, and crannies. Custom-made inlays provide a higher level of coverage than crowns, and prevent further decay.
As the name suggests, onlays are similar to inlays. However, onlays provide a wider coverage than inlays, as they can be fitted over the tooth and not just inside it. Onlays can be fitted right down to the gumline, and still provide the same top quality restoration and protection.
For patients with missing teeth surrounded by healthy remaining teeth, a bridge is an excellent option for tooth replacement. By using the surrounding teeth as anchor points for the appliance, the bridge fills in the gap with artificial replacement teeth. Versatile and effective, bridges are a great choice for tooth replacement.
