Have you ever thought about any restorations to repair or enhance your smile? Have you ever thought about the risks associated with tooth restorations and how they can be used to dramatically repair your smile? Even though you may be at an increased risk for several oral health problems due to missing teeth, they can often be reversed through the use of tooth restorations. Common types include dental veneers, crowns, teeth whitening treatments and sturdy dental fillings.

Dental fillings are most commonly associated with procedures that fill in cavities that may be present within teeth. Due to the risk of tooth loss and infection from cavities, they need to be treated as soon as possible. As such, consider the use of a dental filling.

In situations where a tooth is extremely vulnerable to further damage, you may want to protect it with reliable treatments such as dental crowns and dental veneers. Whereas dental crowns offer complete protection above the gumline, dental veneers only cover up the fronts of teeth. However, veneers are known for their stain-resistant qualities and for their ability to be easily customized to the look that your smile demands.
