Dental crowns

When dealing with an unhealthy tooth, it is likely that a dentist will recommend a dental crown first and foremost. These act as caps to teeth that are in bad shape, thus preventing further damage from occurring. Crowns are custom created in a dental lab to specifically fit each tooth.

Dental crowns are typically made of gold, ceramic, porcelain or other metal materials. Metal and gold crowns are very durable and reliable, but they are more noticeable. Ceramic and porcelain ones are strong and offer discreteness, which can allow for a natural-looking dental restoration.

Dental fillings

When a dental restoration is needed for a minor issue on a tooth, a dentist will usually recommend a dental filling procedure. Dental fillings are part of a simple process that involves removing decayed spots and refilling the area with dental cement that seals the tooth off. Once sealed off, the tooth is unlikely to experience further damage. Fillings are common for people of all ages, but especially children since they tend to get cavities more often. 

Dental fillings are most commonly used for molar teeth because they have more area for the filling to be placed. Molars are also more likely to be damaged because they chew and grind food. 

Dental implant restorations

More recently, dentists have been able to perform dental restorations with the help of dental implants. The implants work with another prosthesis to restore and renew a tooth that is damaged. Often, the implants will be used along with dentures, bridges or dental crowns to complete the restoration process. Dental restorations done with implants offer more stability and security because the implants anchor the restoration prosthesis in place.
