    Replace Missing Teeth Services

    South Seattle Smiles offers comprehensive Replace Missing Teeth services, including dental implants, bridges, and dentures. Restore your smile and regain optimal function with our expert team and state-of-the-art treatments.

    Tooth-Colored Fillings

    Instead of using fillings that contain mercury and other metals, we utilize tooth-colored fillings made of composite resin. This flexible material forms a strong bond with your natural tooth structure, helping to keep out bacteria and extreme temperatures. With composite resin, we can also match the shade of the tooth, helping the restoration blend in seamlessly. That way, you can enjoy a more natural-looking and confident smile.

    Dental Crowns

    For teeth that have suffered more extensive damage, dental crowns offer protection and support for the remaining tooth structure. Also called caps, dental crowns are bonded on top of the tooth, allowing you to use that tooth again for daily functions and smile without worry. We utilize materials that are designed to look just like real teeth, so no one will be able to tell that you ever had a decayed or injured tooth in the first place.

    Restorative Dentistry FAQs

    Find answers to the most common inquiries regarding restorative dental procedures. Explore essential information and gain insights into the various treatments and techniques used to repair and restore damaged teeth, enhancing both function and aesthetics.
    Restorative dentistry is a branch of dentistry that focuses on restoring the function, aesthetics, and health of teeth and their supporting structures. It involves repairing or replacing damaged or missing teeth using various techniques and materials.
    Dental fillings are used to restore teeth that have been affected by tooth decay or cavities. They help fill the cavities and restore the tooth’s shape and function. Common filling materials include composite resin, amalgam, and porcelain.
    A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its strength, shape, and appearance. It covers the entire visible portion of the tooth above the gum line and can be made from materials such as porcelain, metal, or a combination of both.
    Dental bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth. They consist of artificial teeth, called pontics, which are anchored to the adjacent natural teeth or dental implants. Dental bridges help restore the appearance and function of the missing teeth.
    A dental implant is a restorative option for replacing missing teeth. It involves surgically placing a titanium post into the jawbone, which acts as an artificial tooth root. A dental crown is then attached to the implant, creating a natural-looking and functioning replacement tooth.
    A denture is a removable appliance used to replace multiple missing teeth or a full arch of teeth. It consists of artificial teeth set in a gum-colored base. Dentures can be either complete (replacing all teeth) or partial (replacing some teeth while retaining remaining natural teeth).
    Dental veneers are thin shells made of porcelain or composite resin that are bonded to the front surface of the teeth. They are used to improve the appearance of teeth that are discolored, chipped, or misaligned. Veneers can enhance the shape, color, and alignment of the teeth.
    Yes, restorative dentistry offers solutions for cracked or broken teeth. Depending on the severity, treatment options may include dental bonding, dental crowns, inlays or onlays, or dental implants. The appropriate treatment will be determined by the dentist based on the specific case.
    The duration of restorative dentistry treatment varies depending on the complexity of the case and the specific procedures involved. Simple procedures like dental fillings can often be completed in one appointment, while more extensive treatments such as dental implants may require several visits over a few months.
    Restorative dentistry procedures are often covered by dental insurance to some extent, depending on the specific insurance plan. Coverage may vary, so it’s important to review the terms of your insurance policy or consult with your dental insurance provider to understand the extent of coverage for restorative treatments.
