Restorative dentistry is a field of dentistry that focuses on repairing and restoring teeth that have been damaged or lost due to decay, injury, or other factors. This type of dentistry involves a variety of procedures, from minor repairs such as fillings to more complex procedures such as dental bridges and implants. The ultimate goal of restorative dentistry is to restore the functionality and aesthetic appearance of the teeth while also improving the patient's overall oral health.
Dental implants are a popular and effective option for replacing missing or damaged teeth. They’re artificial tooth roots placed into the jawbone to provide a stable base for a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are a long-lasting and natural-looking solution for restoring missing teeth and improving the overall function and appearance of the mouth.
Periodontics is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the prevention and treatment of gum disease. Gum disease is a common problem that can lead to tooth loss if left untreated. Our periodontics services include deep cleaning, scaling and root planing, and gum surgery to treat advanced cases.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps placed over a damaged tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramic, or metal. Dr. Ambis uses the latest technology to create custom crowns that fit perfectly and look natural.
Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells adhered to the front of the teeth to improve their appearance. Veneers can cover stains, chips, cracks, and other imperfections. Our Ithaca Dentist uses high-quality porcelain veneers that look natural and last for years.
Dental fillings repair teeth that have been damaged by decay or trauma. Dr. Ambis offers both traditional amalgam fillings and tooth-colored composite fillings. Tooth-colored fillings are made from a composite resin that blends in with the natural color of the teeth, providing a more natural-looking restoration.
Dental bridges can replace one or more missing teeth. Bridges consist of two or more crowns attached to the teeth on either side of the gap with a false tooth or teeth in between. Our dentist uses the latest techniques and materials to create custom bridges that look and feel like natural teeth.
The specific details of your procedure will depend on the type of restoration you’re receiving. However, you can expect to receive local anesthetic to numb the area, followed by the removal of any damaged or decayed tooth material. The restoration will then be placed and shaped to fit your tooth perfectly.
The lifespan of your restoration will depend on several factors, including the type of restoration, the material it uses, and how well you take care of it. With proper care, most restorations can last for several years or even decades.
Many dental insurance plans cover at least a portion of the cost of restorative dentistry procedures. However, the specific details of your coverage will depend on your plan. Your dental team can work with you to determine your insurance coverage and maximize your benefits.
