Restorative Dental Hygiene & Cavity Restoration
We welcome new patients!
What is restorative dental hygiene service?
Dental restoration, or dental cavity restoration, is necessary when a tooth is damaged, decayed, or worn out. Certain dental restoration can also mean replacing an amalgam filling with a resin the same colour as the tooth. Whether it’s for cosmetic dental or medical reasons, you can trust our dentists with your teeth in total confidence.
Besides improving the aesthetic appearance of your teeth, there are many reasons why basic restorative dental care is important (for both the front and back teeth). The main benefit is to your oral health. Left on its own, a cavity can cause several problems:
- Significant pain;
- Promotes the formation of painful abscesses and oral infections;
- Fever and swelling of the face on the affected side;
- Chewing problems;
- Teeth that break, crumble, or fall out.
It’s important to remember that a cavity is an infectious disease that attacks the enamel. However, when left untreated, the cavity destroys the enamel and can spread to the tooth pulp. This can have serious consequences, including the problems mentioned above. It is recommended to have a preventive treatment carried out to avoid these problems.
To preserve your dental hygiene, we strongly recommend cavity restoration. Now let’s discover everything there is to know about the restorative dental hygiene service offered by Clinique Dentaire Lorraine.
Types of Dental Restoration
This service isn’t limited to restorative dental hygiene. Indeed, there are several types of restorations. From minor restorative dental to major restorative dental, discover them below.
Composite Restoration or White Composite Filling
A composite resin restoration is an operation that involves replacing an amalgam filling (silver-coloured filling) with a resin the same colour as the tooth. This therefore mainly serves an aesthetic purpose. It has a variable lifespan, but can last up to several years.
What are the benefits of composite dental restorations?
However, there are many other benefits, such as the following:
- Dental Veneers;
- Dental Fillings;
- Dental Crowns and Dental Bridges.
In addition, these restorations are less expensive than ceramic or gold crowns and only require a single visit to the dentist.
Porcelain Ceramic Inlays
Besides resin, Clinique Dentaire Lorraine also offers a restoration service with ceramic inlays. Ceramic is a hard material the same colour as the tooth, which lets you quickly restore a radiant look to your smile. Discover all the benefits of ceramic dental restorations below.
What are the benefits of ceramic inlays?
When it comes to ceramic inlays, the material favoured by most dentists is porcelain. This material is hard but fragile, so it is not recommended for patients with bruxism.
However, porcelain and metal can be combined in a laboratory to create a solid crown the same colour as a tooth. Ceramic inlays are also known for their durability.
Although this way of restoring teeth is more expensive than a resin restoration, it is still less expensive than a gold restoration.
