Dr. Chapman is an expert at completing tooth restorations. Restorations are the various ways that we can repair teeth, in a way that keeps functionality while also looking natural. Common types of restorations include crowns and fillings. When are dental restorations needed? Life happens and with it sometimes accidents occur, resulting in cracked, chipped or broken teeth. It is important to repair these teeth right away so that they do not become a source of pain in the future.
Tooth decay is another major factor that leads to dental restorations. When a patient gets a cavity, or a root canal is necessary, Dr. Chapman can restore it so that the tooth can continue to function without needing to be removed. This is far better for your overall oral health since keeping your natural teeth is the best option. Schedule an appointment
Types of Dental Restorations
A dental crown is a cap that completely surrounds a tooth. It is often the best type of restoration when a tooth is missing a large portion of its enamel. Even when biting down hard, a person does not have to worry about it being uncomfortable or causing further damage.
Do you have a cavity? When needed, a filling is used to fill an area removed because of tooth decay and missing enamel. This not only provides protection and prevents further damage to the tooth but also at Chapman Family Dentistry, we can provide tooth colored fillings to match surrounding teeth.
Bonding is the application of a tooth-colored composite resin to repair a decayed, chipped or discolored tooth. Also, it can make teeth appear longer and serve as a cosmetic alternative to fillings. Bonding is popular when restoring baby teeth and can be done in a single visit to your dentist.

It is important to work with an expert since it ensures that your restoration will blend in with your natural teeth. Additionally, working with an expert makes it possible to feel comfortable after a restoration. The restoration must be designed perfectly so that it fits with your existing bite and the surrounding teeth.
