Tooth Restorations In Salisbury By Dr. Rick Dawson

Rick Dawson D.D.S. LLC | Salisbury Family Dentistry

Dental health is just as important as physical and mental health. Taking care of your teeth should go above and beyond brushing, flossing, and showing up for regular check ups at your Salisbury dentist. In fact, one of the most important aspects of taking care of your dental health includes tooth restorations in Salisbury. Investing your time and money in tooth restorations can brighten your smile and improve your appearance in a non-invasive and affordable manner.

What Are Tooth Restorations All About?

Salisbury tooth restorations are done to help build up a tooth when necessary, and also to replace teeth that have broken or fallen out for one reason or another. Something as simple as getting a tooth filled is considered a tooth restoration technique. Implanting new teeth to replace natural ones is also an important aspect of tooth restorations in Salisbury. The whole idea of the tooth restoration process is to recreate the natural look and feel of healthy, strong teeth.

There are two basic types to Salisbury tooth restorations- direct and indirect. Direct tooth restorations are done directly on an existing tooth. Building up a tooth with natural materials is an example of how direct restorations might be applied. Creating crowns, inlays, and bridges are all done indirectly. Some of the most common types of materials used for tooth restorations in Salisbury include gold and silver amalgams, as well as cobalt, and chrome alloys.

Porcelain materials are also commonly used in tooth restoration when it comes to creating full sets of prosthetic teeth or veneers, which are thin shells made of porcelain that are designed to cover all or parts of a tooth’s natural enamel to help strengthen it.

Restoring Your Own Teeth to Good Looks and Good Health

If you think you can benefit from Salisbury tooth restorations, it is important to work with an experienced tooth restoration specialist such as Dr. Rick Dawson to determine the best route for you to take. After an initial analysis, you will be provided with some effective options that can get you the results you are looking for. From there, you and Dr. Dawson can put together a solid course of action for treatment.

You may need to have teeth removed in preparation for prosthetic replacements in order to improve the overall look of your teeth. Cutting a tooth or preparing the gums for tooth restoration treatments are all things that may need to be addressed before the restoration process begins. So make sure that you start the restoration process weeks before you want the actual treatments to take place.

The overall process of tooth restoration may be a complicated one that takes weeks to accomplish, but it can also end up being simple, encompassing nothing more than a few fillings. This is something that can be determined during your first appointment with Dr. Dawson. The more time give yourself to prepare for your needed treatments by making a consultation appointment as early as possible, the more positive your experience will be overall.
