Restorative Dentistry In Dubai
Restorative dentistry simply refers to any dental procedure that is carried out to either repair, or replace a damaged tooth surface. Restorative procedures can include fillings for cavities, and fractured or root canal treated teeth. The main goal of restorative dentistry is to improve oral health and chewing, as well as the overall aesthetics of the tooth.
To the extent possible, we want to keep dental filling material looking natural or unnoticeable. Minimal tooth fractures, tooth decay, or damaged surfaces of the teeth can be restored by either composite or ceramic.
A composite filling is applied to cavities after the removal of caries (decayed teeth) and is a material designed to match the colour of your teeth. The purpose of composite fillings is to repair or restore the tooth to its original shape. A composite filling is durable, gives a natural look, repairs fractures, and is an effective method to fix minor to major tooth damages.
Composite Fillings are also referred to as tooth-colored fillings and white fillings. Our dentist removes the decayed portion of the damaged part of the tooth and then places a composite filling or composite onlay to restore the original shape of the tooth.
An Inlay is a filling that is pre-molded to fit into cavities of teeth caused due to a fracture, breakage, or tooth decay. The procedure for an inlay is painless, your dentist will numb the affected tooth through local anesthesia and carefully drill the tooth to clean the decayed part. After cleaning the tooth cavity, an impression of the cavity is taken and sent to a laboratory for the production of composite resin or porcelain inlay that matches exactly the size or shape of the cavity to be filled.
An onlay is a covering of the tooth surface which resembles the crown of a natural tooth. An onlay is required to restore the natural shape of the tooth where part of the original crown is missing. The onlay covers the cusps and cavities of the tooth. Onlays can be made of composite resin or porcelain.
