Dental restorations happen when your teeth have areas that are damaged by decay. To insert a filling, the damaged or decayed part of your tooth needs to be removed first then the affected area needs to be cleaned thoroughly. After that, the dentist will fill the cleaned out cavity with the appropriate filling material for it. Amalgam fillings were commonly the ones used the most but now more people prefer tooth-coloured fillings because they are composed of a durable composite resin material that can easily blend in with the affected tooth’s natural colour.
Dental crowns are also called “dental caps” because their purpose is to completely cover the tooth to restore it to its normal shape and size. Crowns do not only restore and strengthen the function and structure of your teeth but they also improve the appearance of your smile.

Dental bridges are called bridges because they literally act as a bridge to connect teeth separated by one or more missing teeth. They fix the gap by joining an artificial tooth to adjacent teeth or dental implants. Bridges are cemented in place using the surrounding teeth as support.
They prevent remaining teeth from moving around or drifting out of position
They help you properly speak and chew
They distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth
Dentures are one of the options for people who want and need missing teeth replacement. It is a removable replacement that is custom-designed to fit the wearer properly and comfortably. There are two types of dentures, complete and partial dentures.
Complete Dentures are dentures made for people who already have all or most of their teeth removed and will be needing a full and complete teeth replacement. The process of applying complete dentures start with making sure all your teeth have been extracted. After that, you will need to wait for about 8-12 weeks in order to fully heal before the dentures are put into place.
Partial Dentures are for patients who have multiple missing teeth in different areas of the mouth. Partial dentures rest on a metal framework and are made to go well with the patient’s remaining natural teeth
Dental implants are not only a better option but they are also the modern day’s best solution when it comes to missing teeth replacement. The reason is that they provide a strong foundation that will keep your replacement teeth intact and long-lasting. They are also non-removable unlike dentures and are much more comfortable to wear because you don’t have to worry about them falling out.
Dental implants work by having a strong foundation called titanium or “root” inserted into the bone and is used to support a crown, bridge, or denture. The titanium feels and acts like a real root and can last a lifetime. They can retain the functionality and the structure of your teeth because they are integrated very well into the bone structure.
