Restorations Q & A

What are dental restorations?

Dental restorations are various procedures and tools that help Dr. Lee and the team restore missing teeth or damaged portions of your tooth structure. Thanks to modern treatment techniques and technologies, restoring damaged or decaying teeth to their near-original condition isn’t just possible, it’s easy. 

What types of dental restorations do you offer?

At Mission Dental, Dr. Lee and the team offer a full suite of dental restoration services, including:

Dental crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that fits over a cracked, chipped, or decaying tooth. If one or more of your molars are weak or falling apart, Dr. Lee might recommend a dental crown to restore its shape, strength, and overall physical appearance. 

White fillings

If you have minor tooth decay or you damage one of your teeth after biting down on something hard like a lollipop or popcorn kernel, Dr. Lee and the team might recommend a white filling. Unlike traditional amalgam fillings, white fillings mimic the color and light-reflecting properties of your natural tooth enamel, which helps them blend in with your smile. 

Dental bridges

A dental bridge is a type of oral prosthetic used to fill a gap in your smile caused by one or more missing teeth. Dr. Lee and the team offer state-of-the-art porcelain dental bridges that match the appearance and strength of your natural teeth. 

Dental implant restorations

Dental implants are incredibly durable, but from time-to-time, they break. If you damage one or more of your implants while playing sports or eating, Dr. Lee can safely and effectively restore your implant and prevent further damage from taking place. 

What type of dental restoration is right for me?

The only way to determine what type of dental restoration best meets your needs is to make an appointment with Dr. Lee and the team at Mission Dental. Following an oral exam, review of your medical history, and discussion of your aesthetic goals, the team can formulate a plan that aligns with your individual situation. 

If you’re missing one tooth, the team might recommend restoring your smile with a dental bridge. If you’re missing multiple teeth or all of your teeth, you might benefit from dental implants. On the other hand, if the damage you’ve experienced is mild, a minor restoration such as a white filling or crown can quickly address the problem and prevent the need for more invasive measures. 

Thanks to dental restorations, it’s possible to keep your smile healthy and aesthetically pleasing. Make an appointment at Mission Dental by calling or booking online today.
