Restorative Dentistry


 3D rendering of a crown being placed, an example of restorative dentistry. By brushing and flossing daily and avoiding high amounts of sugar and alcohol, you can keep your teeth in top condition. But even the best brushers neglect certain hard-to-reach areas of their mouths, and plaque can build up that only a dentist can remove. If the condition of your teeth worsens, then you may need restorative procedures.

Dental Fillings


Fillings are used to repair the damage caused by cavities, thereby preserving a tooth's function and appearance. If a dental cavity has formed on a tooth, Dr. Kathiravan Mohan will remove the damaged portion and fill in the void with various materials.

Traditional options include silver amalgam and tooth-colored composite resin. Amalgam is durable and affordable, but less aesthetically pleasing. Composite resin, on the other hand, matches the natural tooth color but may not have the level of resilience needed for large fillings. Recent advancements in dental science have opened up options like ceramic and glass ionomer, offering improved durability and appearance.

Dental Crowns


Dental crowns, also known as dental caps, are custom-made coverings that are placed over damaged or weakened teeth to preserve their structure and function. They are crafted from materials like porcelain, metal alloys, or a combination of both, combining both durability and a natural appearance.

Crowns are used to protect and strengthen teeth that have undergone root canals, suffered substantial decay, or that have cracks. With proper care and maintenance, dental crowns can last a lifetime, allowing individuals to enjoy a healthier, more attractive smile and improved oral function.

Dental Bridges


If multiple teeth need replacement or restoration, an excellent solution is a bridge. Dental implants are surgically anchored in the jawbone to act as sturdy artificial tooth roots. These provide a strong foundation for the bridge, which consists of a row of artificial teeth.

Implant bridges not only restore functionality and prevent bone loss but also deliver a lifelike appearance. Whether you need to replace one or multiple teeth, dental implant bridges have become a preferred choice for those seeking a permanent and aesthetically pleasing solution to missing teeth.

Dentures


If you are missing one or more teeth, dentures can help restore your smile, your ability to chew and speak, and even your confidence. At Comfort Dental Excellence, we specialize in both complete and partial dentures. Regardless of which type of denture you need, your restoration will be custom-fit for effective, comfortable, and long-lasting results!

Same-Day Dentures


Here at Comfort Dental Excellence we will help you get same day dentures; these could be full dentures or partial dentures. Same day dentures, which are also known in the industry as immediate dentures, are a certain kind of denture that can be inserted as soon as your natural teeth have been extracted.

Inlays and Onlays


Dental inlays and onlays are another option for restoring moderately damaged or decayed teeth. These custom-made pieces are typically crafted from materials like porcelain or composite resin. Inlays fit in the center area of a tooth, while onlays are placed on the inside and outside areas (known as points) of a tooth.

Unlike fillings, inlays and onlays offer a better fit and last longer. As a result, they preserve more of the tooth's natural structure. In general, they are less invasive and less expensive than full crowns. Their natural appearance and durability make them a popular choice for restoring teeth, striking a balance between cosmetic appeal and functional strength in dental restorations.

As we have seen, Comfort Dental Excellence has a wide array of restorative options. Regardless of which one you choose, it is your responsibility to care for your newly restored teeth. If you're not sure which one is right for you, give us a call at 610-681-6262 and we'll schedule a consultation.
