Who needs dental restoration?

Dental restoration is an ideal treatment (whichever treatment is ultimately chosen) for patients dealing with such issues as gum loss, damaged or missing teeth, or a whole host of other mouth issues where intervention is required. While dental restoration can have great physical effects – such as fixing someone’s smile, offering them greater mouth movement or the ability to speak or chew properly – they can also deeply affect a patient’s mental health, restoring the confidence in themselves they once had thanks to their new appearance. Get in touch today if you’d like to discuss whether dental restoration would be a good fit for you.

Why is dental restoration important?

Aside from the above, dental restoration is often an important move in solving serious issues, before they evolve into something worse. For example, a patient dealing with awkward tooth placement may need to have several teeth removed or replaced before they begin to cause issues with the surrounding teeth that are still in good working condition. If you’re unsure whether or not your current mouth condition needs action to be taken, it’s wise to book an appointment to see us at Windsor Centre for Advanced Dentistry, so we can examine you and offer a professional prognosis.

Restorative Dentistry Treatments 

What types of treatments you may personally require is all based on your situation and the current state of your teeth and oral health.  However, whatever your situation it’s really important is to understand that good restorative dentistry is about addressing your oral health as part of your treatment and not simply ‘papering over the cracks’.

Restorative dental treatment typically includes filling, fixing missing or broken teeth, to restore the natural function of teeth. Other treatments may also include: tooth whitening, braces, root treatments, fillings, crowns, bridges, veneers, plastic gum surgery, bone and gum rebuilding & grafting, and possibly more depending on your dental problems. We aim to get the best results for our patients, so dental implants, implant dentistry, periodontal treatment, aesthetic dentistry, orthodontics, endodontics, cosmetic dental treatments all play a key role in getting the final look and result you want. 

Restoring your smile will take time but the treatments involved can be broken down into phases, which then gives you a good plan of action for the future.

Restorative dentistry Case studies

It is important to understand what happens before dental treatment and after. 

The patient was a middle-aged gentleman, his teeth had deteriorated through poor dental care and gum disease. The teeth were worn down and discoloured. some broken teeth or missing, with gum disease and gum recession. 

The dental solution:

Full Mouth Rehabilitation: periodontal treatment, dental implants, crowns & bridgework.

We were able to treat the gum disease, stabilise the teeth and re-build some of the lost gum and bone to correct the gum recession & bone loss. His teeth were then restored with crowns and bridges on the teeth that could be saved and maintained and dental implants for the missing and failing teeth. Overall a lovely result in a difficult case.

Frequently Asked Questions

Traditionally, restorative dentistry was recognised as the process of fixing teeth so they can offer their original function without pain or resistance, while cosmetic dentistry focussed purely on the appearance side of things – helping your smile look as even and attractive as possible. However, as time has passed, these terms are often interchangeable. Today, you may find people and dentists refer to both restorative dentistry and cosmetic dentistry. After all, whether it’s for practical or aesthetic purposes, ultimately something is being restored.

Restorative dentistry is an umbrella term that covers any treatment that restores the look and feel of your teeth. This can include anything from simple fillings, to complete dental implant treatments and everything in between. If you believe you may require restorative dental treatment, or you’re curious about the treatments we can offer at The Windsor Centre for Advanced Dentistry, feel free to explore our website or get in touch with the team today.

As a rule of thumb, the NHS covers the cost (or some of the cost) of common, necessary treatments designed to alleviate dental pain – these can include such things as fillings and crowns. However, for more in-depth treatments that are needed as the result of poor dental hygiene or a simple dislike of the appearance of teeth, you will likely need to cover the full cost of your treatment.

This depends entirely on the type of treatment you need, as all treatments are different. Quick and simple procedures can be relatively cheap, while more invasive and extensive ones may set you back slightly more. However, at The Windsor Centre for Advanced Dentistry, we always endeavour to make our treatments as affordable as possible while keeping in line with the general cost of dental treatments in the area.
